I miss biking in Alaska. Biking in Bellevue Nebraska is not the same.
I used to do two main laps. My "short lap". I left Boniface gate down Tudor and hit the Chester creek trail and come back through gov hill gate, about 14 miles in about 55 min. The other was my "long lap". I would leave out gov hill gate, through down town getting on the Tony Knowles trail, past the airport, Kincaid park, down to Boniface, getting back on base through that gate. That was about 30-32 miles depending on if I went through MLK or Tudor. That one was a day off 3 and a half hour ride.

milk is always a bad choice in my opinion unless it's going on cereal.

I keep looking to see if there's any termination dust reported. I keep checking KTUU, I think they usually say something about it. I know it's early but I'm dreaming of snowy areas.

According to Nasioc my last login was 1/13/2017 Been a long time. Anyone know of anyone selling a 2004-2007 STi? I'm currently in the market. Can't believe I'm looking to buy an STi for the 3rd time... Maybe this time I'll learn not to sell it.

I too will be in the market for my third STI. I will be looking into a new one, in about 3 years (if they continue to improve like they are). I love the way they're proceeding.

Based at Offutt, NE. AKIC has been dead for a while. I mention how I miss the good o'l days at least twice a year. I've got just a little over three years, then I'll be home in Alaska.

As a Subaru Ambassador and old buddy I can hook you up with $500 additional off whatever price you negotiate. It could be below invoice and they'd still have to honor the coupon, per Subaru of America. I've helped a couple of friends so far. I only get 5 each year, but I have 3 left. Already bought my 17 Impreza before becoming an Ambassador, but might end up getting something else anyway. I got my car from Eastside Subaru in Kent, WA, right as I was moving back last summer.

Wish I knew where my BRZ wound up. I miss that car.

Welcome back!

Default AKIC OT - All OT posts go here

Well, after a failed attempt at buying a 2007 STi out of Canada, a limited 2015 out of Denver, and a super clean limited out of SoCal, I decided to go local and struck a deal on a clean and stock 2015 Silver STi.

Got her waxed and shining. Anyone that knows me knows how anal I am with my cars. Had to detail it the first night lol. Honestly after test driving a 2007 and driving the 2015, there's no comparison. I'll always miss my 2004 and 2005 STi's, but I love this car and the LED headlights and even the exhaust is perfect for being stock.

I'll save the BMW for the "race car." This will just be the fun winter car that'll get good tasteful exterior mods and maybe a deeper exhaust. The sound of the Blitz Nur Spec-R on the 04 was amazing. Maybe not that loud, but close would be fun!

Got the oil change and alignment scheduled at Conti this week. Now to get a hold of Dent Dude for a minor door ding and get some Blizzaks for the winter. Good to be back in the Subaru game after 5 years!
