My wife has a passion for photography, and has since begun making very good money to further invest in her hobby.I'd like to become an expert in a hobby that would allow some additional income to be made. Interests include backpacking, woodworking, mountain biking, guitar, drums, ultimate frisbee and disc…See More

I have an '03 Wrangler, and it is still somewhat of the older ones. I love it! Take it everywhere!

How Bad Do You Go to Achieve Good for Yourself?

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that to be a nice person, with a sense of honor, and to show courtesy, good manners, and self-restraint are desirable, preferable behaviors, and this kind of approach should generally be adopted and practiced in everyday life.
