It’s hard to find things to disagree about with my fine coworker Mike Ballaban anymore. We’ve worked together for a few years now, and most of our takes are fairly aligned. Until... I remembered this article I wrote a year ago, entitled “Just Buy A Jeep” arguing that if you want an offroader in the U.S., you don’t need a fancy Land Rover or Land Cruiser. Then the yelling started.
I still hold to my opinion that if you want a super offroader or even an off road-ready SUV, you should not feel so superior that you must dump a ton more money into something foreign. XJ Cherokees are cool! Woodgrain Wagoneers are classy! Your Discovery or FJ80 is great, but it’s not like it’s a sacrifice you have to make to get something both charming and capable.
Explorer 2-Person Inflatable Kayak
Comfortable for anyone
Nnjoy the water but don’t want to deal with the hassle of traditional kayaks? This is portable, lightweight, and easy to store when not in use.
My coworker Mike, however, thinks I am fool, and does not ever want to associate with the “It’s a Jeep thing” and “if you can read this roll me over” crowd, which I perfectly understand, even though he’s immature and wrong.
