Although, I have been researching Jeeps and learning about them for many many years. I just bought my first Jeep and I couldn't be happier. I'm excited to try some fun rides with new people. I'm in the Appleton area and dying for an area to ride that hasn't been touched by the good old Glacier. I'm very excited to learn more about the science of off-roading.
I really started my serious research into buying a Jeep while watching Jake from "I Am Jade" YT channel. It wasn't until I had been watching him for a year that I realized he's from Appleton too. I'm also a huge fan of Brad from Trail Recon for learning some technical things about Jeeps and I would love to make a trip out west and find myself on the trail with him somewhere. There are some other channels too, but I really like those two the best. Everyone else just seems to be trying to be another Jake or Brad to me. I still enjoy watching those videos, but now with a completely different perspective.
I look forward to meeting many of you someday.
