This thread seems to be getting a little sticky if you know what I mean ;)

Made first tracks in 4-6" of fresh pow on the way home from work...crazy, considering that I washed it in shorts and a t-shirt on Sunday. Loving the new Geolanders too.

I put a catch can under the fuel lines to catch the drip...
I don't need it killing off the lawn

Washed my Forester today! That makes it the second time since I bought it last year (June/09). Being retired now, I don't take it out on the road when it's rainy, so it stays clean. Just a quick dusting with a Griot's microfiber dust cloth a couple times a day & it stays perfectly clean. Much easier than washing it.

With it being Spring here in Oregon, by the time I washed the Forester & dried it off, it was coated with pollen!

Took off the winter tires - I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's not too early.

It's heliski season in Alaska. Got a ride back to Adlersheim Lodge in Juneau to pick up the Foz. I left her out there when the helicopter pilot offered a ride for my 7-yr old and I back to the heliport :)
