Just spent the day walking in Derbyshire and I could not believe the number of Foresters in one day.
Something like 7 and in a week I normally never see that many.
But no signs of membership or even friendly waves :cry:
Is this a record (for the UK)?

Thats cos I wasnt out on the roads! I always wave.
(Theres some miserable b'st*rds driving forester round here, unfortunately.) :?

Couldnt be bothered going out after last Sunday. Seems that as this time of year its everbodies new year resolution to walk or cycle. Give it until the end of Feb, start of march when everyones got fed up! :p

Macc Forest last week was the noisiest i've ever heard it, alive with the sound of screaming kids being dragged round by their parents :p

Hope you enjoyed your walk, but you should come over here on a summers eve or during the week when its quiet, the Goyt Valley is absolutely beautiful.

I rarely see other Foresters, usually about 1 a week. I try to wave if I recognise the car early enough. As yet I have no-one wave to me.

So come guys, lets show the friendliness of this forum on the roads.

You should see the gay, I mean Bay Area here in Cali. It seems like it's 1 out of 10 is either a Forester or some sort of Subie.

You're right about the Goyt Valley - but not on Sundays as its like Blackpool without the Tower then.
I'll keep an eye out when we're over that way - my missus is a Derbyshire lass so we go regularly to get her a "home fix". :)
My car's on the calendar so everyone with one should be able to recognise it!!

I see a hand specialist in Windsor, and when I drive through that town I usually see at least 5 Foresters each trip. Thats on a short drive through, so I reckon it's probably the hjighest density in the South for sure. I live in London and I've seen less than 10 here in the last 6 months.

I live in the Northwich area and out here in the 3 years that I have owned foresters I have only seen 2 others in this area, is this some kind of record.
Its a forester void that needs to be filled.

Maybe now that we have a local Subaru dealership, Christopher Niels, I may see more on the road, here's hoping.

I passed a SLK on the motorway today and the bloke driving was open mouthed as I cruised past. He was trying to undertake and I wouldnt let him! :eek:

Since I fixed my BOV I really have to be careful as I can get to 100mph before I know it... :shock:

Hello

Welcome aboard.
My wife thought it was an improvement when I swopped my Impreza for a Forester - now she's not so sure;-)
