  • Man, it sure is quiet around here

    Is it me or has this forum been a lot less active the past year or so? Seems like a lot of people are lurking now (myself included) most of the time, due to all the inactivity. Everyone, start post whoring and wake this place up!

  • Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Snowing

  • I want to love the 2014-15 Subaru Forester

    The last time Subarus were discussed here was 2013. Since then, Subaru has refreshed both the Forester and Outback / rebadged. I am in the market for a 2014 or 15 Forester or Outback. I buy used.

  • Burke Mountain like the Phoenix rises yet again!

    Now that the Mountain is under receivership and new management what new (or old) paths need to be forged? I think re-establishing a solid relationship with Kingdom Trails is vital as is reaching out to the local community. Out with the old, Let's get moving!
