A few weeks back we made a big purchase: A Jeep Wrangler Rubicon!
With the transition to begin a full-time photog and working from home- we had been operating with one car since our return from London- with Joey having the car during the day for work, and me using the car on weekends and nights for shoots and client meetings. We made it work with a bit of juggling, but then schedules started getting a little more complicated, and we decided it was time to make the purchase!
We wanted something that would fit our adventurous lifestyle and was fit to take roads less traveled, making the Wrangler the perfect fit. Yes, it’s true- it’s gas mileage leaves a lot to be desired, but that’s what our Honda hybrid is forWith the Honda’s amazing gas mileage, and the Wrangler’s gas guzzling- we kinda have two normal gas cars!
This past weekend, we took advantage of the long Labor Day weekend and took the Jeep out for it’s first off-roading experience (and mine!). The George Washington National Forest has one trail specifically for larger vehicles- so we headed out on Monday morning and adventured through the trail. It was a bit bumpier than anticipated, but that was a happy surprise! It was so fun to do something completely new- and watch Joey in his element.
We then spent the next day driving through Skyline Drive and stopping at the beautiful overlooks. We drove the winding roads with the jeep top-down- definitely want to head back to catch the leaves as the change!
Enjoy a few snapshots of our first off-roading adventure with a few instagram shots mixed in. And if you know of any good spots for more off-roading, please share!
Happy Friday, friends!
