if i can find some spare cash or come across a decent clunker to fix up and then upgrade, then maybe some exploration in my wagon once its not a daily. im new to the seattle area, and cant wait to tear into some trails... but i have a few other non-offroading projects in the works, so derping around the woods usually takes a backseat.

After I get my wagon lifted hopefully i can take it to the few places in alabama near me that the trucks have completely rutted out. If my outback cant get there, my cj7 should. Hopefully I can get some pictures next time im on the trails.

So far this summer I've put my 90 Legacy on Outback Struts, Stuffed some 27' General Grabber AT2's...yea, be jealous ;).. Sealed up my snorkel, and Hit Larch Mountain a few times. Decent wheeling up there. I'm in Vancouver, WA and i really want to have a Offroad meet up sometime before summer ends. Any ideas on where, and when?

I've been out three times already, but being that it wasn't in a Subaru, you have to find me talking about it in another forum. Did Evans twice and a bit of the Nachees trail too. Got the winch on the new bumper, am ready for whatever.

I'm in the process of putting my replacement engine for my offroader together.After that I need to re-wire my trailer and pack the wheel bearings on it.Then I will start rounding up fuel for the august trip.Things are going along nicely other than the dead engine in the first place... :)

You offroading guys have inspired me to put Forester struts and springs under my Impreza. I hope to be doing that in the next couple of weeks. I also hope I can fit the 215/70/15 tires under there that I already bought. :)

Now that I moved down south I've been busy taking the lift off the Legacy and swapping it over to Stella.  Still not finished but not much left to do.

Bethel Ridge and Manastash Ridge...two of my favorite places.  Fun wheeling out there especially in the fall/winter.
