    I commuted to work on my bicycle today and an amazing thing happened, the wind was at my back in both directions. Today was my lucky day, I should have played the lottery!

    I tell you what Sailor, l’ve looked lustfully at that very car ever time I walk thru the new car line. That should also have the premium interior with a nice sound system!

    I hate the lane change/ steer ahead feature..... but each feature can be shut off independently. I would use it on those long late nite trips to a section on I81 or I95

    Otherwise, I love the adaptive eyesight, especially going around curves. It took some getting used to...letting the car take over and not fighting the wheel for control. I love my Subaru.

    ^ it doesn’t take away steering control. You can still steer outside the lane if needed. Its just a slight feeling of the wheel getting stiff but it always startles me and takes some time to get used to.

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies. I stopped at a McDonald's to borrow some free Wifi to get a picture of a the trails and away I went. Going up Wolf Pit road in my 2002 Honda Accord was risky with the amount of ice and snow on the road. The final hill going down to the…
  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
