Chat with Estha
"My name is Estha Allen, I was born in Pascagoula, MS. I was adopted by my grandparents at age 5, fortunately, I still have my parents in my life. I taught my mom to Jeep wave, best thing since sliced bread LOL. I work construction all around the USA, following in my mother's profession. My home base is Gore, Oklahoma. I currently live in South Boston, Virginia, on the North Carolina State line. Having my job in construction and having my Jeep for 2 years now is allowing me to have the opportunity to travel, cross states, and explore what each state has for off-road parks/recreation, or just a beautiful Sunday drive on back roads. My husband, Danny, has a 1995 rebuilt YJ, all upgraded. We wheel together as husband and wife, switching rigs on occasion, which is really cool to be new school and offered old school. Offroading has really been a blessing in our life, people we meet on the trails, being in offroad groups, and sharing the passion, friendships and exploring. Going off-road has really changed my life and I'm not stopping anytime soon! I have lived in Virginia twice and North Carolina twice so cheers to looking towards adventure to the future 4X4 and I will go!"
