So, a hobby of mine is watching entirely too much YouTube. I watch things that pique my interest. I grew up on a small farm, so I watch The Millennial Farmer. His 10 year old son was driving a tractor and grain cart that was worth more than the entire farm that I grew up on! Farming is a different world now. I also watch several travel videos as well as several RV YouTubers.
But the one channel I watch most faithfully is Matt’s Off-road Recovery. He has a cobbled together Jeep Cherokee that he uses to pull stuck vehicles out of sand mainly. They also pull people out of everything – snow, mud and loose rocks. He uses a kinetic rope, kind of like a huge bungee cord, and “yanks” them out. I am really not sure why I like it, but I do.
They are in Hurricane – the area that we store HOWE and camp close by. I heard they were going to be in the Hurricane car show the weekend we would be in the area, thus, Charla and I HAD to go!
It was in a park in downtown Hurricane. There were a TON of cars there! We got there early, and went straight to where Matt had the Yellow Bannana (the jeep cherokee) and their new vehicle, the Morevare (a Corvair body on a custom frame, engine, etc.).
I always wondered why people wanted to see movie stars. Now I know the feeling. I didn’t have anything original or smart to say, so I just gawked. Another person that is in the videos, Jefe, showed me around the Morevair. It was a TON of fun! I bought a couple of hats and a T-shirt from Lizzie and got to see the whole crew.
We looked around the rest of the show. There were a lot of interesting cars and trucks there. For example, there was an old Kenworth truck, and a “mob” car. It is amazing how much work people put into their restorations!
