Farewell to “Bodie” the Blue Jeep

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2012 by thedesertfiles

Well after 5 awesome years of desert adventures my Jeep is no more. I was forced to let him go due to mechanical issues. It just didn’t make sense fix the issue. After much thought, reflection, and tears I took him to a local dealer and sold him. Hopefully he’ll be picked up by someone else who will use him the ways Jeeps were meant to be used. I do look forward to purchasing another Jeep in the near future. The desert travels will continue (thank you Avis…shhhh!). Stay tuned for upcoming posts on “The Alamo”, the Coso Mountains, and Big Sur.
