He lives in his wrangler

Is anyone following Iamjake on YouTube? He's a very cool guy living and traveling in his Wrangler doing a daily vlog.

Check him out here: http://youtu.be/nG4M2Vfhdo0

USAF reservist. I appreciate a young guy nowadays who chooses to serve.

Pretty "freaking" good blog. He could learn a lot from the folks here, but I respect that he's getting out there.

Does he ever mention having a gun? Hope so.

He started out without a gun. He had a (very few) weird nighttime encounters and now has one, but hardly mentions it. Happy-go-lucky!

SOmehow his Vlog showed up on my recommended watch list. Its interesting, he seems like a genuinely good guy. I admire the gumption by just living how he wants to live and doing odd jobs to make ends. I hope hes able to make it through all 50 states.

I had seen this before, a little too intense for my taste. Impressive he is able to do it in a 2D.

Not sure what you found intense, unless it was his messy jeep. The guy couldn't be any more laid back. The episode I linked to was not up to his current standards. He continues to improve his technique and storytelling. I think he's really cool. Wish I could go with him. :-)

I'm gonna have to agree with nycgags based on the vid linked at the top. The guy seems a little wound up and spastic. I'll check out some of his more recent ones and see if he chills out at all.

This is pretty cool. One of those things that's not so feasible when you're married, he's making some cool memories.

So now you've got me binge watching it like I did "Dexter" and "Breaking Bad".... etc

Will he sleep with the cute hair stylist in Portland?

Where will he park his Jeep tonight?

It's a neat story, gotta give the kid kudos for his service and his drive to do/see something new everyday. I'm sure most in training for the service want to go home and sleep.....not saying I'd blame them, they'd whip my tail!
He's got balls O steel sleeping in some of those places.

I am addicted to his vlog, and I'm an old guy (maybe it's because I have a 2 door tank). He's settled down a little now from when he first started. I've caught up on all the vlogs from the beginning and now look forward to them. It's about 8 or 9 minutes a day I can forget about the rest of the crap that's going on in the world. Besides, I like the music he blends in with the videos. And the scenery is beautiful. The kid has some talent. It's better to start from the beginning so you can kinda get the storyline (it gets better as it goes on).
Give it a shot.

There is a guy here in Wilmington living in his jeep. Not the same type of story I'm sure.

Caught wind of him on these forums, am now binge watching trying to get caught up. (Almost there) You really do have to start at the binging to get the story.
He is getting ready to start a 50 state trip, I would let him spend a night in our drive.
I even watched a couple of his early vlogs, Midnight Munchies. Was cracking up watching those.

Have you noticed how much of the banana pancakes he eats? I would be so fat I couldn't walk. Of course I'm an old.

This is exactly the kind of thing I would do if I was young again. Just get out and see the world.

It's actually got me thinking of sleeping n my 2 door JK for my next offroad trip.

I've started following him too. He's added a lot to his videos with his drone.

That is exactly what I want to do. Can you post specifics of it? Do the legs fold or detach, and how do you anchor to the bumper?

Yes , I used a 24" X 36" X 3/4" plywood for the top a 2" X 4" for the legs and the bumper spacer and two door hinges so the legs could be folded , 1"X 4" for the legs supports
and I used two 2" 90 deg brackets that hooks behide the bumper so it stay in place and a door latch to lock the legs in place when down. I'm using a Rightline gear tent.
