Default Where have you taken your Subaru today?

Many times people ask me "why don't you have a truck? " and I laugh. They follow up with "what's so funny? " really, I don't need one. My Subaru is my truck. When they ask what I mean, I proceed to tell them what I haven't done with it.... and that's a scarily short list. Today I'm logging, and it got me thinking. Where gave you taken your Subaru, whether for fun or work?

North Egremont, eh ? Home of the famous speed trap ?

I have a full size truck that takes most of the abuse, but I do tool around a lot in the 04 Wagon. I have strapped lumber to the rack and hauled concrete in it, but mostly it's for long distance trips, parts hauling, and general hooning around.

I haven't rally crossed it yet. I have seen too many front and rear bumper covers get ripped off, and the car is still fairly nice. I need a serious beater, maybe a 2.5 with a stick...

Learn about Egremont the hard way? Haha.

I don't rally mine...yet. gotten close to ripping my oil pan open on rocks though, that count? Rolled tires off the bead, bent rims, pulled cars that are stuck, moved furniture... it's a work horse for me haha. Think about all I have left to do us haul something on trailer haha. Engine and transmission at the same time, with 2 friends and a weeks supply coming back from Boston was a trip.

Manual wouldn't get me very far. I grew up on them, but it's too much going on when I have bigger problems to worry about...like sliding off a cliff cause it's just wide enough to squeeze through. Fun times..

Wow.... I've driven to Montreal from Trenton. Somehow I feel that my accomplishment doesn't compare to the above lists....

i took it on a road trip to virginia to nyc, and blew my head gaskets in mount holly, nj. it's currently sitting in philly until i can find a mechanic that can fix it for equal to or less than it would cost to tow it back home
