    So a few weeks ago, I mentioned a really cool opportunity we had but didn't get into detail. Well, it looks like its probably not gonna happen so I'll let you guys know what fun I almost had!

    So the guy who runs the company who owns the rubicon trail and sets up all Jeeps press/schools etc... lives down the road from me and grew up with my older cousin. They were looking for some "discount" places to do some press stuff since covid has killed budgets and he always wanted to get something going in Berkshire County where we live and he was raised.

    So there was potential to have either the new Grand Cherokee L or the Wagoneer press tours/drives AT OUR FUCKING PLACE! That would include a few hours drive around the area, lunch in our place and then they would have built us an offroad loop that the journo's would have tested the vehciles on.

    This would have been reallllly cool and they would have replaced the track, or kept it for my own use, obviously i wanted to keep it!

    Well the Grand L didn't work out they picked somewhere else. And supposedly its between us and Jackson Hole for the Wagoneer....guess who will win that one :rolleyes:


    They also mentioned maybe hosting a school once or twice a year on our land and still doing a course. This would be pretty cool still, but its for people who have never put their jeep in 4wd and would be super basic bitch and not fun for any of us.:angrygirl::angrygirl:



    I was really pumped for it, and it would have been a great opportunity for us. Oh well, maybe in the future:fingerscrossed: . Either way, all the top guys at stellanis have now seen my website and are aware we exist, that's a big step up!

    Does he have kids? Offer a discount on their weddings to sweeten the deal? He is in the auto industry so he must take bribes.

    I don't think he has kids. He also doesn't make the final calls,I guess hes been trying to get something here for a while. He scouts sites, organizes the set ups and probably a billion other things.

    He showed me photos from his new zealand gladiator launch. 150k acres rented, amazing teepee glamping. 500k budget. We could eat for a few years off that... needless to say their budget for us is a significantly smaller number.

    Honestly, the cost inflation. this time last year i drove down to Jersey and almost bought that exact same truck.
    exact same truck, year, trim, options. only difference was is was silver and had 83,000 miles. And it was $6,400 cheaper at DCH toyota Brunswick.
    The taco at Lundgren dodge is an "okay" deal for todays market.

    are you going to be trading a car? you'll get more on your trade too to offset the inflated values. otherwise i'd probably wait a year for things to come back to "normal"

    He sort of did what I did a while back and put his vehicle in a 'less than ideal' trade in condition.

    I read an article yesterday that talked about why the auto prices have gone bat shit crazy.

    -folks in the city don’t trust mass transit
    -folks moved out the cities and now need rides
    -and the computer chip and factory shut downs/slow downs.
