Jeep Life: 1st Mud Run

Posted in Family, and Outdoor Adventures

We’ve been enjoying rain on and off for the last few days around here. It’s been wonderful. The temps have been cooler, and we can always use the rain – especially when it’s a slow, steady rain rather than a downpour. On Friday, Daddy was rather eager to get out and do at least a little mudding as it’s been a long time since we’ve been able to play in the mud. Unfortunately, by the time he got home, I was already making dinner which meant I needed to stay home to finish it up. It was decided that it…

Part of the Jeep Family

Posted in Family, and Outdoor Adventures

I faintly remember a trip from my childhood where we took our Jeep and another vehicle camping. (Clearly I was more fond of the Jeep because I have no clue about the other vehicle.) I’m not sure when that Jeep was sold, but it was only a part of my early years. As I grew up and got ready to drive, I always thought it would be fun to have a Jeep.

This time, unlike when we’ve gone out in the past however many years, it was just D and I. Munchkin needed to work…

Exploring Big Bear: Discovery Center

Posted in Family, and Outdoor Adventures

On Monday, we decided to take a break from the desert heat and head over to Big Bear for the day. Since we hadn’t been over there yet, this was more of an exploration drive rather than a trip for a specific purpose. Of course, Daddy decided that we would take the back roads to get there which meant off-roading in his truck. The dogs even joined us on our little adventure. The back roads were quite bumpy and narrow at points. Having another vehicle coming from the other direction took some fancy maneuvering for both parties. D loved every…
