As we began to contemplate adding a new jeep to the garage, rolling out new ideas for the website, and planning new adventures we decided to go forward with changing the name of our website. Mudbug Adventures will stay up but all future posts will be added to our new site Our Jeep Adventures. We hope you’ll like the new Facebook page and keep up with Our Jeep Adventures!
Car Cover Pros
Using a Jeep cover is one of the best things that you can do for your Jeep. It can help prevent sun damage and will keep your Jeep clean for longer periods of time by preventing animal droppings, leaves, grime, whatever it may be, from settling on your car. This will also save you time and money, not to mention water, by not having to clean it so often. This post has moved to: https://ourjeepadventures.com/jeep-cover-pros-and-cons/

If you have a high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicle, Big Bend’s primitive dirt roads provide many opportunities to get off the beaten path and explore the remote corners of this park. Some of these roads traverse bedrock and washes, making them extremely rough. A slow speed is mandatory for safe passage. Be prepared with plenty of water, a jack, and a good spare tire. On these isolated, infrequently patrolled backcountry roads, a disabled vehicle can become a life-threatening situation. Let’s take a closer look at Off-Roading in Big Bend National Park.

Since purchasing our Jeep Wrangler we have taken a couple of short drives. We kept our trips short because we wanted to find any issues that might begin to show from driving it. The Jeep is used with 137K miles and even though it had a certified CarFax report you never really know how well the previous owner took care of it. The first symptoms began showing after our short drive to Glen Rose, TX. This post has moved to https://ourjeepadventures.com/jeep-wrangler-oil-pan-seal-and-critical-collar-gasket-replacement/
Our first jeep event since buying our jeep, Woohoo!
Well, before I get too deep into the event I should mention that we found out about the event weeks before we had even bought the yellow Mudbug jeep. I saw the even posted by The North Texas Jeep club and mentioned it to Scott. Scott laughed and said we could go if we had a jeep by then. There went my chances of going or at least that’s what I thought. Just a few nights before the event we bought the jeep. Before I could say anything Scott said: “I guess now we’re going to jeep night”. This post has moved to https://ourjeepadventures.com/jeep-night-at-gas-monkey-bar-and-grill/
Last night we took the plunge and bought our Jeep for Mudbug Adventures. We bought a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X. We decided the easiest way to share all the details was in a video. You’ll also find more information below the video.

I’ve gone back and forth on rather or not to share this with you all. I’m going to go ahead and put it up and trust that if people get brutal (yes, people can be pretty mean online) that I’ll be able to brush it off. Today, I’m going to address what can happen when you let self-doubt creep in and you don’t trust your motorcycle riding skills. [Read more…]
Visiting New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns
Carlsbad Caverns will always be a special place for me. It was the first place that Scott and I visited after we got married. It was a crazy trip, the area had been in an extreme 3-year drought and of course the day we got there it rained, then it rained the second day and so on. Despite the rain, we had an amazing trip. We went off-roading in our van, went to the caverns and even went on the Slaughter Canyon Hike and cave tour. Not sure I’d be able to handle that hike these days but the memories are amazing. The video below is from our second trip there, we were celebrating 20 years of marriage that month! We were much older the second time around but the memories being made were just as amazing.
