"It seems strange to say, but what can help modern man find the answers to his own mystery and the mystery of him in whose image he is created, is silence, solitude -- in a word, the desert. Modern man needs these things more than the hermits of old." Catherine Doherty

As spring comes we find out our old 4 x 4 farm truck is
down for the count. 

We really need a 4 wheel drive utility vehicle to maneuver the endless amounts of trails and logging roads as we work the property for hermitages, prayer trails, up keep and security of these 
375 remote wilderness acres.

Some sort of vehicle like this:

Even an old beat up but mechanically sound Jeep that could handle some real off road expeditions. We won’t be going over speeds of 25 and some mountain roads are steep coming down. Lights, radio, doors, roof and other similar luxuries are all not important, cosmetically it can be ugly. As long as it could carry two people, have good brakes, start and stop and carry building tools and supplies, fencing, lumber etc to remote areas as well as moving feed and hay to animals now that the truck has given up the ghost.
So, since we have had some requests about needs here. 
I am posting this request.

Thanks for giving it some thought.
