Our Forest Green Cherokee has been quite the trooper…
I’m convinced it saw this year’s Jeep Winter X Games
commercial featuring Robert Frost’s Stopping By Woods on a
Snowy Evening “I have promises to keep and miles to go before
After a wild life in the East Coast, to a quick move to the
Midwest, our Cherokee has kept it's promise and now has a new home
on the West Coast.
To celebrate its new live on the West Coast, The Hill family jumped
in the Forest Green Cherokee, and headed to Disney.
Walt Disney did such an incredible job making his dreams come to
life. From the time one enters the park, their world starts to
shift. From the smell of the hot churos to Tinker Bell flying over
the castle to kickoff the night’s firework spectacular- you
are able to become a kid again with an imagination as big as all
the stars in the sky.
A minute before the clock struck midnight (before our Jeep turned
into a pumpkin) we threw our coins in the fountain at Disneyland
and made our wish upon the Supermoon. As Walt Disney once said,
“All our dreams come true, if we have the courage to pursue
The weekend's magic continued as we went to L.A. to visit The
Tonight Show with Jay Leno. There O.A.R. performed their latest
collaboration with B.o.B. titled “Champions."
The song was created as a free download to inspire and pump up
America for this year’s Olympics. The lyrics express that
“Taking no for an answer isn’t part of the deal…
We make our dreams a reality, you can tell that it’s real,

I remember standing up during the performance thinking…
“YEAH!!!! Let’s find a way to make our dreams come
true!” Brittany and I have been in countless situations where
people just say “No” and end up shutting down a
conversation. Whether it’s an excuse, a simple answer, or an
east way to get rid of a crowd… we have come to realize if
you want something bad enough, there is always a way.
After being inspired by the new song we started our nationwide
search to make our own dreams a reality. We have been talking about
getting a Jeep Wrangler for a long time, but now became the time
for us to live the life we’ve imagined.
On our exhilarating quest, we learned how to drive a six speed in a
TJ, the importance of understanding the product, how to negotiate,
which Chrysler dealership has the best ice cream in Illinois, and
the importance of staying true to our beliefs.
We ended up finding a Flame Red JK...a life size version of our
very first Power Wheel Flame Red Wrangler. We are now embarking on
our own adventure to inspire people to dream and create their
Whether you want to explore the open road, build a life size
fantasy world, sing a new song, or travel to Timbuktu…the
world is your stage.
Let’s “make our dreams a reality!”
Until next time…”Have Fun Out There!”
PS- Don’t be sad…we still have our Forest Green
Cherokee. As I mentioned, it has “miles to go before it
