New Jeepers from Eastern/Upstate NY!
Hey all. This is Mark and Briana. We JUST took delivery of a shiny Bright Silver '09 Wrangler X 6-speed. A/C and 3.73's for options. Briana works at a horse farm, and it will be mostly her car, but I (Mark) will steal it whenever I can :)
Briana is getting out of the Truck of Death, a truly evil (not in ANY good way) '99 Dodge Ram 2500 that needed to go away, and now finally has! She is very excited, and can't wait to get some mud on it!
I (Mark) am a salesman at Hyde Park Motors Jeep Store. We're engaged, and instead of a baby, we got the Wrangler (less poop, hopefully!). I've owned one off-roader (an old Dodge when I was in AZ), but am largely inexperienced in 4x4 matters. I'm a mechanic by training, but also have a good bit of experience racing. I can run- now I have to learn how to crawl! :)
I'll be on here a fair bit- I'm the computer geek of our pair. Pictures to follow soon! Mud shortly thereafter, I hope :)
Looking to meet some fellow NY Jeepers! I'm trying to teach Bri to wave to other Wranglers, so hopefully we get some love around here. Doesn't seem there are many in this area who 'get it.' Oh well! Would love to meet folks who want to go off-roading with us. Cheers, and I'll be posting plenty more soon! Mark W.

welcome to the site. Wallkill, (Newburgh area) NY here. Not many wavers in this area.

Nice- actually, on the first drive of our JK today, was 2/2 on waves! Very nice :) And I know Wallkill very well- used to work in Rock Tavern/Walden. I'm over north of Po-town, in the Millbrook area (Clinton Corners, on Bulls Head Road off the Taconic, if you know it)- Mark W.

I used to work in Red Oak Mills for Barnes Construction. My buddy works for Gilmore Transportation delivering pool water up there.

Thanks all- took the baby out in search of mud all weekend- got her a fair bit of dirty :) Pics to follow when I get home from work later- Mark W.
