Hello all from NYC.
A snow storm is coming and the forester is gonna get some dusting.
I just got a bone stock 05 XT with 177k.
Rust free as it came from the west coast, owned by a Yoga teacher, so she did not race it or off road.
My plan is to do a resto-mod, get it in proper running state and then start to build on top of it.
My project is to go around the world with it in stages, for cancer awareness.
I am a cancer survivor and I wanted to bring the message with me around the globe.
And not sit on the couch waiting for something to happen.
I chose the forester as I think it could handle the terrain I will encounter.
First leg is from NYC to California then to the
Arctic circle and back to NYC.
Launch date is spring 2021.
I am now in the car phase, to get it road ready with adventure, overlanding and doing some off road in mind.
Any suggestions on what I should do with it is appreciated.
Cheers,
JSP

Welcome! Sounds like a really cool plan! Would love to hear about it when or as it happens.
I would also like to hear some recommendations. I know the wheel bearing is making noise so I will start with suspension and brakes.. I was looking at a 2 inch lift w Black Rhinos and KO2s..Struts.

Keep us posted on the adventure. Will you do any livestreaming or post an itinerary of stops?
