My baby is ten years old!

A rare photo of me NOT at the helm of my JEEP.

Over the past ten years, she has patiently tried to teach 3 children the art of the stick shift ... with varying results.

She's taken me to awesome places ... which we don't tear up.
She's a responsible offroader.

On occasion, she has been filled with pretty, intelligent,funny college girls.

More often, it's just JEEP and me, lost where we want to be ...

Out here on the edge of Florida, we do things ourselves and she has often pitched in to make things happen.

She loves my dogs and I love her for that too. SHE never fusses about dog hair on her seats.

Her cargo space is small, but Bear fits, even with Coquina, so it's all good.

Sure, she had a close call this year, but she never flinched.
It's a JEEP thing, you might not understand.

... and she always has my back.

It's been ten years since I left mini-van purgatory and achieved a life-long dream of having a JEEP.

I have no desire to EVER own another vehicle.

Driving an American Legend works for me just fine.

Happy Tenth, you awesome thing!

Cleanest JEEP I ever seen.
I remember asking if it was brand new.
Perfect vehicle for you.
