The jeep finally earned her name today, "T.C." We headed out for the first Sunday Funday of the hiking season with mom and the kids today, and got tangled up in a 5 car accident while going 70 mph on the freeway. After we knew we were all ok, we checked out the jeep, which we were certain was in rough shape from the 2 separate impacts we took. To our complete surprise, the damage was minimal, though the passenger rear door doesn't open anymore. With insurance, she'll be back in tip top shape in no time. The kids said she's one "Tough Cookie," and we still managed a short hike and a drive on the fire road up in Farmington with no issues. Thankful to have had the people i love surrounded by all that Jeep goodness today... and seatbelts.... always seatbelts.
The other vehicles did not fair so well, though we were told everyone was ok, though very shaken up.
