This is "Eclipsing". I was wrong about my username haha, I should probably stick with one name across all boards.

I had such a great time! It was an exciting 425 miles added to the odometer in one day!

Some shots:

Joint Legacy GT & NASIOC effort. After all the weak sauces dropped out (at some point we had some 40 cars) only 21 made it.

Being in charge of this trip- planning but also the first up the road, I can tell you that the 17 cars that took to the I-88 interstate was a LONG badass convoy...that could barely communicate via walkie talkies from the front to the rear.

We should also have video of this hole thing from 2 cars.

It kicked ass.

I will think about doing it again. But as things stand right now, it was extremely stressful to try and get 2 clubs that normally do not partake in each other's events and folks from 2 states together, on a 350 mile journey. I can only hope you all had as much fun on this trip - you as Subaru enthusiasts and your significant others - as I did.

I would like to thank Whateverland (Archie) for doing a pheomenal convoy control from the rear (he was the rearguard) and to GFX Dave for being the convoy leader and last but certainly not least - the entire IOWA Crew led by QC PUNK. I also extend all my thanks to all the participants: well behaved - they never allowed my greatest fear: road racing. I definitely didn't know half the folks before we all invaded that poor gas station off of I-88...and I left the Galena Cellars knowing that I could not have asked for a better group of friends and a better day to organize this.


Thank you all and Godspeed.

Thanks for letting us meet up with you guys! Had a blast (well... except for that little bit of mysterious white smoke that came out of my tailpipe... looking into that today).

Some pics!

The Iowa crew just waitin' for the subie rumble.


The first of the subie train pulling in.


The rather awesome (but very short lived) subie flag pole setup...


Good line of subies (and a couple of rogues... Sweet BMW, and an EVO with hilarious plates).


From the ski lift platform. Gotta love this part of the river, its may favorite summer boating spot to see from the river.

Props to f1anatic for making an idea generated over a table discussion of chicken wings, beer, and water (with no ice) into a reality!

Props to everyone else for not causing a 20 car pileup (the caboose was pacing the I-88 convoy at 95 at one point )

Let me work on the video. Should be...interesting !

Do you guys want it ALL, cut, RAW, or with effects. Cause I just checked...there's even funny stuff from the radio chatter as we got lost on the way to the wineyard.

Andrew, I think the best part which I may have on video is how you and I blew by the winery in complete blissful fun and then shocker...we were half a mile off by the time we noticed.
