Thanks to all the folks who sit around and say “we have to get old moosey out here”.

 

!!!! Yes I sure am looking forward to finally getting out to the other Subaru corner of the USA !!!!

 

Let’s see what else this year brings. But man I sure do want to hit your big meet WCSS. And more than that I really want to finally meet up with those cool rump roast folks I’ve gotten to know over these last TWO DECADES ! Holy chit !

 

Hoping this is the year. Cheers !

Paul

Board bump.

Yeah , it’s a little tricky planning this trip. Hang in there and I’ll see you all soon enough.

 

Various obstacles. But in general it’s now looking more like a quick trip out with full focus on the PNW.

 

Not likely that I’m going to hit the jackpot with my plans to see the top of the country and Yellowstone. But someday. And yeah Jerry , I want to see the Cascades and hope to see you too either way at home or the show.

 

So stinks popping dream balloons. In my mind I’m driving , touring Nat’l parks , bringing home a vintage wagon , etc etc etc.

 

Paring it down to the basic requirements. Getting to WCSS and hanging out with some fellow ale drinking knuckleheads.

 

At this writing it’s looking like I’d be flying into Sea-Tac sometime around the 4th. I’ll be sure to arrive at a time that doesn’t screw up your plans. So maybe the 2nd or 3rd or 5th. TBD

 

Thanks again!

Give you two guesses. The event is in which month ? Lol

;)

I don’t think I’d be spoiling anyone’s plans on the 4th of May , June , or August. :)

Was going to , but just too much going on to easily make something happen. I’d do it if I could bring my tool box and some parts along.

 

But you never know what’s going to happen. ;)

I flew with tools in my luggage, which the airline lost for 3 weeks... ended up just getting a small set at wallyworld, which has made a great trunk kit.

 

You could do the same there or harbor freight.

 

Or just borrow of our fellow subie buds.

Lol , yeah I “could do” a lot of things. But this time around I’m keeping it simple. With my son out west I can see the rest of the family taking a healthy trip to the coast the next few years.

 

And there’s always craigslist

Ill see you there!

I have made the trip for #3, 7, 10, and 19 if memory serves and never had a bad time.   At #10 I had been puking for 2 days from bad Clam chowder for the first day of the show and still had a blast.   I fully agree with you that:

For your first show don't try to bring a car home but if you are going to try it you have the right idea doing a round trip flight in case the deal isn't good.   

Twice now I have done some sort of car deal on the trip.   The first one I did was a logistical mess and I had some of the best members on this forum to help me.   Then last year I did a trade and showed up in an SVX that I had owned for 6 hours and changed the radiator at the show.  That car made it home no problems but it was a huge gamble.   Times I have kept the trip simple with a solid EJ powered car that I already owned before and drove home after have been much more vacation like.

Ahh great advice and I sure will see you soon. It’ll be great to finally shake hands with all of you.

 

No car deals right now. Plenty of dreaming , but no deals.

Just too much this year. Timing wasn’t the greatest for a family vacation. So a quick trip it’ll be.
