Living out of your jeep
« on: July 10, 2017, 08:51:07 AM »
This dude sets off on an epic road trip. Looks like he's got all his bases covered, although I would prob want a more complete first aid kit and a better air compressor. What do you guys think? What would you pack differently?

Hes got a Facebook and YouTube under the name: iamjake

This is true. How about LJ for compromise?

Pretty interesting set up. As long as it works for him. Agree on the first aid kit though. Our public relations committee should contact him to see if and when he's gonna be in Connecticut. Have him as a guest at one of our trail runs... :smile:

I'm impressed with how much headroom he has! My XJ is a similar set up and I can't come close to sitting upright like that.

Kitchen set-up is decent, with the Coleman 2 burner. His curtains kind of suck though, reflectix is the way to go.

 I've been following Jake since last year. I even got a shout out on one of his videos as a thanks for being a follower and Patreon supporter. I've definitely told him once he makes it to CT to come out with us.

I'm sure. His Jeep is not bear proof.
i doubt even an XJ is bear proof.
Maybe cub proof, but not hungry mommy proof.  lol

I've watched from the beginning, and since he started using drones the footage has been awesome in the places he goes. He does a great job putting it all together with the music he chooses. Annie the dog is everybody's favorite.....

Same here, he's been slacking over the past month though!

He's been getting some pretty good looking ladies to join him from time to time too lol.

I told him to drop me a line when he makes his way through CT.  Figured he could come check out some NE Jeep action.

This is the first I have heard of him and it looks pretty cool.  I will definitely check out his stuff.

I think it would be great to send him an NE Jeep care package.
