2009 Jeep Liberty Buggy

Sam Gillis
Sam and his rock buggy are tried-and-true tenured members of the Ultimate Adventure and part of the old cronies club. If Sam isn't out on a top-secret mission for our government he can be found wheeling his favorite stomping grounds in and around Alabama. The UA just wouldn't be the same without him, especially the Spam-and-eggs breakfast he cooked for us every adventure.
