Jeep Wrangler at Triangle Beach

Location: Triangle Beach, Richmond, B.C.

It seems like Vancouver is ready for its ordinary winter season with all the misty rain. Last winter, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)  hit me hard and I could barely see hopes in life under the heavily covered sky. People told me to “just go for a drive”, “rain is the happy time for drifting”, or “at least you still have your Z”. I thank them for trying to cheer me up but, at that mental stage, talks like that were never functionally helpful.

It’s that season again. But I don’t sense any negative vibe like I did then. I can think of only some of the many possible influences that contributed to this positive change. From almost went to visit psychiatrist, to getting up early everyday and not being annoyed by anything, I find myself always relaxed and enjoyed.

Rainy days don’t bother me anymore. In fact, it made me think of the mini off-road area  in Richmond – it will be fun to play with some mud.

Since Noah is still stock and I am new to off-roading, I asked my friends who have more experience to guide me. You know, just in case if I get stuck in mud by myself.

Behind a lifted Jeep, Noah looks like a little girl.

My little skull hitch cover ate a full face of mud, and so did Noah. Although failed to get on the biggest slope, overall I had a lot of fun.

There’s nothing wrong with the joy of driving and the joy of cars. People say rainy days are good because of drifting. However you want to intemperate what I’m about to say: I enjoy rainy days with my car in a legal way.
