Re: How Did You Get Started, And What Are Your Plans?
Well, I've been a city boy all my life, except for the two years in the Army. So I really didn't have the back country off roading opportunitites that others have had. However, I was in the Boy Scouts and we did a lot of camping and hiking. Spent 2 years in the US Army operating amphibious wheeled vehicles that we drove in off road situations,as well as M38A1 and M151A1 Jeeps.
About 2 years after I was married, my wife and I wanted to get back into camping. So for a while we just used our 1981 AMC concord wagon to go to drive in campgrounds. After a while, that got old and we wanted to do a little more. So 4 years and 2 kids later, we bought our 1986 XJ and we've been camping with it ever since.
