I finally got to present Rob(Turbone) with his Badge of Honor. Austin earned his set as well for the '80 wagon. (That may have had a heavy price though) I'm sure he'll elaborate later.
This trip was not without carnage though. MikeW ripped a strut top off. Turbone ripped the rear diff hanger loose and then off. Austin found his car is waterproof interior wise. But it soaked everything else. We managed to temporarily fix and repair all damage and everyone left under their own power.

Rob put on the best show with his wildman routine. Dang, that was cool. Hope there's some pics and video since I didn't have my camera rolling.
Zap, Qman, and Mudrat make scary manuevers look casual. These guys have so much experience wheelin' Subarus it boggles the mind. The special guest apparence by Mudrat was a cool surprise.
I wasn't too happy about dislocating my strut in the first five minutes of the run but I kinda asked for it. Thanks to Mudrat's ratchet strap technique it held together very nicely. Maybe brand new strut tops aren't such a bad idea.
Thanks for going folks and hope to see your pics!

You'll notice EZ didn't go into the deep part of the mud holes, he doesn't have any protection for the disty or carb.
Here's some photos I took from the video I shot.
I'm hopin' that one of you will produce video of my little escapade up on the hill where I slid down into the ravine. . .

Yep I have video of that. As so often happens with pics, it doesn't look as precarious as it was in real life. But if my filming sucks it's because I couldn't decide weather to keep shooting or run over there in case you started tipping. You sure know the tipping point and behaviour of your car. That was some awesome driving.
I miss the little :eyebrow guy from before. I'd use it now. hehe
