Northern colorado trail run, Kelly Flatts

I got sick of dumping fuel/money/time in it and got a good deal on an '04 Outback. Figured it wasn't worth keeping a vehicle that gets 12-16 mpg to go offroad a few times a year

I know I'll end up missing it but I couldn't justify doing the two cars thing

EDIT: And it needed atleast $1k in body work/parts if I was going to keep it long term (with the I-70 wreck and then front end parts getting old... bushings, joints, CV's, etc)

I'm still planning on going up for the day. Probably won't stay the night just due to other things I have to get done that weekend. Hokie, you're more than welcome to join me if you like.

Well I'm up for still wheeling that weekend. Maybe some other trails in the area will still be open, and fun to do.

Well atleast I don't feel as bad about selling the Mounty now... I leave for SC in mid May (so I was already missing the Moab run)
 






Brett, What did you name the Subbie??

Tim

Lesbaru? LoL

Dunno, haven't name it yet. Don't plan on it. As long as it gets good MPG's while i'm taking road/ski trips I'm happy. My search for my next 4x4 has officially begun... (Although I won't be buying anything until after I graduate/move in December)

I've been saying for years that having a Subaru Outback and a '93-'97 Ranger on 33's would fulfill all of my vehicular needs ~ so I'm half way there
 


















Lesbaru.. HAHAHAH

you must be planning on moving down to boulder with that rig ;-) every lesbo, soccer mom and gramma alike drive those. hell, when i was out here for my job interview they sent my rental car up with that.

i must say i did enjoy the ride, not bad at all!!!!! i've been tempted to trade my moped in to get a motorcycle with the way gas has been going these days...... so not a bad idea at all. just make sure you stick around to help me with all my ford auto needs brett ;-)

i'll drive our ***** up to A basin before it closes this year... wait, no you will, gas will be half as cheap then ;-)
 






<hijack> When does A Basin close? I need to get in at least one more run this year. </hijack>

See... all of you Front Ranger's will be hitting me up for rides to the ski slopes next year. This summabitch gets almost 30mpg highway with ~7.5-8" of ground clearance and full time AWD to boot.
 






Umm. ?
Sorry
I'm trying to absorb the Hokie mounty gone without warning.
