Human nature is an amazing thing and how we take things for granted. I remember last fall when the weather was still nice, after pulling my doors and opening the roof all spring and summer, thinking ah I’m just going to the supermarket, I’m not gonna pull the doors. I skipped it a few times. Tomorrow’s Feb 1st. 2 months to nice weather. I wanna open my Jeep like a baby wants it’s bottle.
Have any of you folks in cold weather areas done the same thing?

I feel you bro! It's zero here in Maine with one to two feet of snow forecast beginning tomorrow. Spring seems a long way away.

As I write, it's 42° here and my Jeep has been at the dealership for 2 weeks for the steering gear replacement. I'm sure it's a lot colder for some of you but for some reason this winter has felt different than any other year for me, I've never really liked the winter time but already it seems like forever since I got to go Jeepin without the top/doors and I still have so much longer to wait (even though it'll probably fly by). I just want warm days again and my Jeep back! 😫

I feel for you guys in the cold. It's been since I was a kid that I lived in snow country, in MT.

While California is pretty f#@!<ed up, it has some of the best weather in the nation. Winter in southern California is a great time for the deserts here.

Winter doesn’t really matter to me. I’m topless at least once a week if not multiple times a day all year long.


Was 25F today and snowing

We are having some of the most miserable weather at the moment: too dark, damp and cold for most humans, but not cold enough for fresh snow.

Took the Jeep out yesterday. Encountered rain, mud and leftover snow, but still managed to capture some beautiful vistas.

God bless you. The cold’s not for me though.
One thing made me chuckle in your video. I get the sense your wife doesn’t like the top open at 25 degrees as much as you. She was bundled up like Kenny in South Park.
Mine also hates the open top. Even if it’s 75 degrees. After 70 degrees she gets overruled. I’ve learned to make her bring a light jacket and keep hair scrunchy things that they use in the glove compartment.

After many years of dealing with many Iowa winters I have grown to hate winter! It used to drag on for soooo long. Now that I'm older it seems to fly by and that kinda scares me, lol. In a few more years I hope to spend my winters with no doors or top in Arizona, I've seen enough snow I sure as hell won't miss it!!

We have camped in the desert every president's day weekend for years. Joshua tree, the Mohave road, exploring old mine sites throughout the mojave national preserve. Only 1 night in the last 6 years did a cold storm blow in and we had a bit of snow. Otherwise it's tee shirt weather during the day and sweatshirt weather at night. This year we are trying further north, outside of Vegas. I've been through the desert in the summer, and camping in 110⁰+ heat is a hard no for me.

Don't get me wrong, love some winter wheeling, snow is great because it mostly cleans itself on the way home. I'm also well beyond my 20's, feeling like I had to prove myself to anyone including myself. I'll be snow wheeling in the jlur with the top on, seat heaters and steering wheel heater on. Sure, I could drive an open top flatty through the woods and dig a snow cave to spend the night in like we did in our youth, but why?

If you're familiar with the Mojave Trail, then you may have been by my friend's old cabin on the trail halfway between Basin and Razor. We started going there 40 years ago with dirt bikes and buggies, then later with horses. He sold it about 10 years ago. I've riden the Mojave trail on horseback from Newberry Springs to Fort Mojave at the Colorado river a couple times. I've flown that area and landed many times at the strip at the Razor Rd gas station that a friend owned. In fact, it was my flying that got him into planes. So, that part of the Mojave is very familiar.

We did some horseback exploring to mines on Avawitz Mtn , north of Baker as well as south of Ludlow in mines around the Bagdad-Chase mine. Around Shoshone and Tecopa there are a bunch of fascinating old subterrainian hillside mud dwellings from old miners.

A rainy winter day when the sand is wet in the Mojave is a hoot on a dirt bike or horse. I imagine a Jeep too.
