Hi,
Just joined today from Southern Maryland. I am original from California, but moved here for work after I got out of the Navy. I am new to the whole Overlanding thing, but I am hooked. I haven't had a chance to go anywhere yet, because my poor car has been broken more than it has been working since I got her last year. I drive a 2000 Subaru Outback. Not exactly the typical overland rig you see, but she is very capable, and will only get better with time. Pleasure to introduce myself, looking forward to getting to know more of you, and learning more about this awesome lifestyle.

Blown head gaskets, typical subaru stuff. And the guy who I bought it from cut a lot of corners, so I am slowly fixing all her problems. What subaru do you have?

I have a 2017 Forester. Coming up to 30k and no issues so far. These newer FB motors are a big improvement over the EJ, and I really like 32mpg. Subaru really has a great AWD and VDS going. I am taking my wife and two kids on my trips so I have concerns with the weight, hence why I am not building the Subie.

Yeah, my engine has 290k on it. And I get really bad gas mileage, especially compared to my old accord, lol. But it is amazing in the snow though. The lsd is no joke on this car. I buried her in the snow, and she drive out like it was nothing, lol
