Welcome to our Jeep blog, Jeepsies.
Why the Name Jeepsies? Isn’t That Too “Cutesy” for a Jeep Blog?
We get it. The name Jeepsies struck us the same. But if you get to know us, you’ll understand. Jeepsies is a play on the word “gypsies” and it’s definitely a fitting name for our Jeep blog.
My wife Brittany and I are straight up nomads. We travel full time and have no real property. It’s a pretty crazy life.
In 2014, we sold everything and bought an RV and we’ve been traveling ever since. If you are interested in that lifestyle, you can check out our RV Wanderlust blog.
We also created a blog about our home city of Austin, Texas, called The Austinot. We’ve been blogging about our adventures for years and our Jeep blog is our next chapter.
Suffice it to say that YOLO (You Only Live Once) and FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) are two things that we take seriously.
We are seizing this life and doing it up right. I mean, after all, you only get one shot around. Why not take it to the limit?
Newbie Jeep Blog Alert
Look, we don’t pretend to be something we’re not. There are tons of folks out there who have forgotten more about Jeeps than we’ll probably ever know. But we’re learning! You’ve got to start somewhere right?
We really don’t mind if you laugh at us, though we’d prefer it if you help us by commenting and sharing your Jeep knowledge. We’ve found that generally speaking, the Jeep community is an incredibly helpful one, and we’re glad to be part of it.
You Know Hardly Anything About Jeeping. Why Should I Read This?
Well, for us, it is about the process from start to finish. Is there a “finish” for Jeepers?
Anyhow, for three years we were in the research and looking-to-buy phase. In June of 2016 we picked up a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.
To this day we spend 1-3 hours per day researching Jeep stuff. So we have plenty of Internet knowledge, but limited practical knowledge.
We have taken our Jeep, “GUARDIAN,” on some pretty incredible trails including 3 of the 44 Jeep Badge of Honor trails.
This is just the start of our journey.
We are all about community. So comment on the articles, let us know that you are here and hopefully we can meet up sometime on the trail!
