My Father In-Law Loves Pilot Flying J Coffee!

in Stuff by James Hills
I've had a chance to test out the Wrangler and Renegade Trailhawk, both are rugged, and fun off road vehicles that I can't wait to drive again.

If You Like Baseball and Girl Power Then Watch Pitch Tonight on Fox

in Stuff by James Hills
Last night I had the opportunity to attend a "sneak preview" and the exclusive screening of Fox's latest fall drama - Pitch.

Make sure to watch tonight 9/22 at 9/8 central.

How to Survive a Day in the Desert

in Stuff
While we had the luxury of being able to head back to a resort at the end of the day, even just taking a quick hike in the desert requires proper planning. For example, the days I spent last month in Borrego Springs averaged 115 degree highs and the minute you stepped out of the Jeep it immediately…

However, the Grand Cherokee is a slightly different beast. While it still maintains a very high level of capability, if feels at home cruising the open highways and urban roads in comfort.

For example, the days I spent last month in Borrego Springs averaged 115 degree highs and the minute you stepped out of the Jeep it immediately felt like an oven. While this is certainly extreme, there's no reason why you can't still have a fantastic experience spending a day exploring this amazing landscape.
