Not enough vacation time to make a complete run though.

I will be there in spirit, and will await the return of y'all. Once I get things in order here, I can concentrate on my Hatch and getting some serious off-roading done.

I'll talk with you over the phone about details that maybe we haven't discussed.

With an attitude like that, we're no better than they are.

I tihnk you're a cool guy, and I think you have a lot to contribute to subaru tech and fourwheeling in general.
However, for someone who seems to "not care what the big guys think, cuz you'll show them" you're sure seeming to care an awful lot. What's it matter? People are going to see you on the Con regardless, and they are going to make fun of you. It is one of the most popular off-road trails in existence, and you make it sound like if no one is told that it is just going to be deserted the entire time you are there.
So, what does it matter whether or not Brian posted on Pirate? I think that you are giving the people that wheel the Con very little credit. Like I said earlier, you've always taken the position of "I don't care what others say, I'll wheel my soob, etc". Did you ever make a recon run down there? Maybe try and get an idea of what the place was actually like beforehand? I imagine you did, and I would hope you're taking someone with experience on the Con with you.
Just my 2 cents there. Flame me, whatever, email me and get mad, doesn't matter.

Yes, Brian, I am going. Why would you think I would miss this? I set aside vacation time for this 8 months ago.
John, instead of reading thing into the post read the post. We are not that niave. What he said is that we don't need alot of extra people who'll be doing nothing but spectating on the trail. That is just what the old-timers and residents of the trail do not want. Why is it everyone who have never wheeled with us (or met us face to face) feel thye know us so well? Don't underestimate the Subes we drive. They are like no others. We are doing/have done our homework rest assured.
I am not trying to step on anyones toes or damage egos or any of that drama crap. I am stating my opinion(remember opinions are like A-holes, everyone has one and some of them stink!) nothing more and nothing less.
For those others who don't know what or why we are doing this. The Rubicon trail is one of the most prestigious and well known off-road trails in the world. We are going there to test or rigs against the trail. Not to show the any old Subaru can make it through. If we make it unscathed than it was a fantastic success. If we make it through under our own power with dents and scars then we are just like half the people that use this trail on a weekly basis. If we don't make it then we will know that we didn't belong there.
The bottom line is that no one knows what to expect from us. It really doesn't matter because we are going to try. And knowing that we tried when most of the world said we couldn't is reason enough to celebrate.

All others, I am giving this once more chance. On topic or it goes away. We need to know who is planning to be there. If you are considering it let us know here and we will contact you.
