Today’s good news: I purchased something new for the Jeep.

The bad news: I spent less than $20, so it’s nothing particularly exciting, LOL!


Not sure what’s up, but my average fuel economy has jumped from the low 15s to the mid- and high-17s. Maybe Smokey likes a summer fuel blend?

It figures, I’d park right next to a sprinkler that would come on while I spent 30 minutes away from the opened-up Jeep. Ugh, the entire front seat, dash and windshield got soaked. So far, everything still works, at least.

A busy year at work, another illness for my wife and the steady drumbeat of daily ho-hum has me seriously in the mood for a couple of weeks on the road/trail.

Too bad dropping everything and overlanding to Alaska isn’t in the cards right now, LOL!

Life is full of tough decisions — like Jeep parts or guns. 😉
