Lady Redrum

Who is Lady Redrum?  My JEEP!  What a wonderful sentence – My JEEP!  I LOVE being a Jeep owner…but frankly it is a love/hate relationship.  There is a saying in the Jeep community…Just Empty Every Pocket…ha ha…yep…it’s expensive for sure.

But in addition to going out and doing crazy weekend warrior kind of stuff…which is really, really fun…


I’ve meet a wonderful group of people in the Jeep community!  New friends, new language (disconnect sway bar for one), new adventures…it’s been a blast!

And finally, there’s Mr. Matthews…in the beginning, he got to drive a lot…so much more confident than I…braver really.  I’d get to an obstacle and be all like “okay, I’m done” and he was just getting started.  But as time has progressed…I’ve gotten better and now we “negotiate” driving time!  But here’s my point…I LOVE having a hobby with my husband.  I LOVE having shared friends.  I LOVE that he can calm me down and guide me through something that scares me to death.  I LOVE the thrill of completing the obstacle and giving each other high 5s and laughing that giddy “dude, we almost died but didn’t” laugh.  I do LOVE that man.
