Well sure I need 93 too (not 91) so I suppose we will have to go to Dubuque for that. Galena only has 91, indeed.

the Elizabeth - Scales Mound rd. may be twisty and with elevation changes but it also cancels about 6 way points in our trip. But trust me, we do not - nor will we take the beaten path. We can run thru the fields just as well as we would on route 20. As long as the road got asphalt. Otherwise...we may have a few broken windshields...and we do not want that.

Symmetrical AWD system that turns tricky windy gravel roads into a fun and enjoyable ride, but paint so thin you wouldn't dare actually drive on a gravel road. Its what makes a subaru a subaru.

Mudflaps are not just to protect your paint, but also to protect other cars and people. It will help to knock down rocks and the like. Stray rocks can hit bystanders or another car causing some serious damage. No one wants that. Plus mudflaps = rally, and the last time I checked, we drive rally inspired cars.

If I get a tranny put in my car, I'll be there. Otherwise, well, I'm not going to have my trans blow up on me 300 miles from home.

QC PUNK,
this is getting ridiculously large...When this is all said and done, we will be well into the 40s if not 50s as far as the number of Subarus + support vehicles in attendence is concerned.

Fun...fun...

I hear ya bro. I hope it all goes well, and that everybody will be excited to do it again! I will get you a confirmed head count in the week before the cruise.
I will get a glass pen so our cars will be ready when you arrive. I am still hoping to meet in Thompson, if that is a stopping point for you. Andrew

So, it ends up my next rallyX is Nov 10th, and I just so happen to work that Saturday. SO, I had to walk around the shop and try to get someone to swap Saturdays with me, and I found someone, BUT I have to swap the 3rd with him. So, I am now a no go.... Sorry guys. I was looking forward to this.

Sorry to hear about the unintended body work.

I expect to be alone in my car, which will be one of the radio cars. A radio operator might be good to have along.
