This blog is about Jeep, Jeep Cherokee, XJ, outdoor adventure, hiking, and other adventures. We will also occasionally talk about attraction and other metaphysical subjects. But mostly just Jeeps, having fun and other off road sports.

Aetna Mountain off road
This weekend I went with some friends to Aetna Mountain near Chattanooga. The recent rains made the rails very slippy. Even the main road up and down the mountain was a huge challenge to navigate. Places that can be accessed by car when dry were nearly impassable. I was very happy with my Maxxis Buckshots. Since trailer parking is limited and not secure, I drove the 50 miles to the trail head. I did not want to air down too much since I had to drive back. The Buckshots were amazing even at 25 psi.
We met some very interesting folks in he woods and had a great time. I was very appreciative to the guys it he Cherokee who showed us a shortcut out and to the guy in the Toyota who pulled me back straight when I got crossed up in the ruts on the way out.
Here is a video of Jenny playing on a waterfall climb: My favorite part of the video is the narration by her three year old son Hunter.
