Nicely stated. I like the Yogi Berra statement. The vehicle is only half the battle - the driver is the other 75%.

On thing I get tired of is all the hate people have towards others' rides if it is a different style than their own. It seems to have gotten worse in our community over the last few years

I really appreciated that and told him it helped me relax...

For the rest of the day he was right in my window any time I was looking timid, asking me why I was backing off a hill and telling me to sack up and get over whatever obstacle was in front of me (in a very encouraging, fun and positive manor).

Thanks, E.M.C. That was the perfect intro to jeeping.
