The sun is going down and we need to get to Tzfas for Minchah. Kinderlach, hold on tight — this jeep is going places.

Where, Zeidy? We’re stuck in traffic and the highway in front of us is bumper-to-bumper.

That’s why it’s time to go off-road! I know about a little-used dirt road through the hills that will get us to Tzfas real quick.


O o oy y!!

Zeidy, can we go back for my stomach? I think we left it at the last curve.

I told you guys to hold on.

These hills are beautiful. Look — goats and sheep! Zeidy, watch out, there’s a stream ahead of us!

Roooooarrrr! Splash, bump, splash.

We’re going through the water!

That’s what’s great about a jeep — you don’t need bridges, you drive right through. Bubby, please pass around a towel so everyone can dry off.

Zeidy, look, there’s a man on the road, with a kippah and the longest peyos I ever saw, waving at us to stop!
