This video shows the beautiful serene drive I took in my 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport on the way to my cabin in Glen Haven yesterday. The water sloshing sound is from the container of water I transport on every trip, as I don’t have running water on the property.
It was a balmy 65 degrees in Glen Haven and a beautiful day to work outside. While at the property I raked up pine needles and cones to help with fire mitigation. I also continued cleaning and oiling the 1938 wooden cabin floor. All the while my small dog, Goldi, watched.
We left the property at about 3:15 p.m. so I could watch the second half of the Denver Bronco game. The Jeep started fine and I drove the 15 minutes to Drake where I met up with the pilot car which takes everyone in line through the canyon construction zone. The pilot car was not there yet so I turned off the Jeep’s engine.
When the pilot car came to lead us down the canyon, I turned the key in the ignition. It started but then quit. I tried again. Same thing. The Jeep would not stay running.
