Last Saturday, had a bunch of Subaru folks meet up at my house, seenig that it's close to I-5 and roughly half way between Eugene OR and Vancouver B.C.
Qman, Mike W, Mudrat, two of his buddies, Jim and Greg from B.C. Brian? from the board with the pretty black Brat, Tex, Syphon and Dante in attendance. Mee too.
John Mudrat brought up two cars to sell, a gen one Brat, and the lifted wagon.
Dante (who we all met in person for the first time that day) bought the wagon from Mudrat. Good old John realized after he'd taken the $ that he'd brought up the wrong title. Dante, without really knowing us, left to go home and get his wife so he could take the wagon home. Get this, trusting me with the keys, and John with a pile of his dough. Came back, got his wagon, it's all good.
John also brought up a Brat for Greg from B.C. But, Geg's Dad wasn't able to get the dolly which had been reserved, and didn't have a way to transport the Brat to home. So, they left the Brat in my yard for the week till they can come back, I posess the keys. (Can't drive it, can't bend my leg enough to even get in its little rump roast cab) But still, left a pressious possession in the hands of a stranger.
My point being, without knowing us or our reputations, these guys put their trust in us to not disappear with either their money or their Soobs. I think it has to do with the type of cars we deal in, I think trust and good nature just tends to go in hand with Subaru.
(now if that one guy would just pay me for the video I seet him and reminded him about after weeks of no payment, weeks ago. . .)

And everyone I've met are great. I mean, on a will and whim me n the wife drove like 500 miles one way to go stay at a house of a person that we had only met for fleeting moments in the past.
I figure that as long as I've known you all here on the board, I could trust my hands in driving clear to Connecticut to stay with Paul for a night or two without any problems.
We aren't just a bunch of people on the internet, we are a world wide community, but we treat each other as if we all live in the same town on the same side of the street. It's great, you don't see that very often nowadays, specially on the internet.

How one raises their kids in a neighborhood of other familys that actually care about the safety of ALL the kids and "Watchout for them all" its akin to this.
I grew up in a neighborhood like this which I'm refering too currently. So this was in Michigan. Then when we moved to deep uber rural michigan farm land the community got a little more specialized and the care became more family like(not quite like Arkansas) but dare assume you knwo what I'm meaning here?
Then wit this summers experience with Burningman coomunity regained a larger mouch more positive perspective. And this USMB community speaks volumes in concert with the previous versions of the same idea.
I may naturally be a trusting soul but, i feel it equally returned in this community right from the gitgo.
Speaking of... One of my roomies might be going to college at Eastern Wash. State in January..... and he may ask for me to help him get there:>)
more warm and fuzzys anyone?
