I Was Driving Home From Practice When....

So, I was driving home from swim practice last night in a freshly washed Jeep when it happened. I saw a nice mud puddle on the side of the road. The Jeep was drawn to it like a magnet. I had to take a drive throughout it. The result, a Jeep that needs to be washed again.

Washing? What's that? Is that what regular vehicles have you do to make them "clean"? Because to me, mud is the new clean.

Maybe I fail, but it doesn't look all that dirty to me. I'd consider that clean.

Watch out because now you'll also be looking for every opportunity to go off the main road to see where an opening takes you.

The picture did not do the mud justice. There is mud splashes all down the side of the Jeep.

I forgot to mention that I belong to another forum - detailcity.org. You might understand my anxiety a little more if you look around on that site.

LOL I totally understand, I belong to the Autogeek detailing forums. Look at getting your Jeep dirty as a chance to play with your detailing products (or find new ones ). Yeah, now I have two expensive hobbies. Auto detailing goodies, and the Jeep.
