Subaru is Back

This morning I rode the Long Haul Trucker to the mechanics to pick up the Subaru. It was so chilly out, my bike racks were frozen when I got there. I had to slide the LHT into the belly of the beast for transport.

It's good to have the car back. As strange as it sounds, it allows me to ride more. When we're a one car family with four kids, it helps my wife if I do a little more kid taxiing. Only having one car means that we have to be incredibly strategic about when to go to the grocery, when to run errands and when to do the random stuff that needs a car. So it helps if I do some more standard things like taking kids to school. If I didn't do a bit more of that stuff, it would put 100% of the burden on Angie. So the Subaru allows me to help out a ton and ride a ton. Win.

Get out there.


  1. Was the repair bill okay? You posted earlier that you weren't sure how much it would cost.

    1. Wasn't too bad at all. I was worried it was going to be crazy. But in the seven years I've driven this car, I've only invested $200 in it. Not bad at all!

  2. I don't know whether it's just me or if everyone else experiencing
    issues with your site. It looks like some of the
    text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This could be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously. Thank you
