Florida to Alaska Roadtrip in an STI swapped Subaru Forester and Mitsubishi Evo 9 MR
I had a left over free rental day expiring this week. So I did what I love to do and took a spontaneous road trip to one of my favorite places.
With out AC.
On our way back to Vermont with a trailer full of sheep. The 2. 7 EcoBoost isn’t nearly so Eco with 5000 pounds of devestatingly un-aerodynamic trailer behind it... Currently averaging 11. 8mpg... But it does move that mass without complaint. It’s working, but it still accelerates rather impressively and just makes it…
First off: (the northern part of) your state is flat as hell.
This is my weekend Oppo. Going to Ohio to pick up 14 sheep, and taking one with us out to middle-of-nowhere New York on the way...
So, next weekend - Memorial Day weekend - a few friends and I are road tripping from NYC, to a friend’s place in Cape Cod, MA. After analyzing all our choices, renting a car [read: large SUV] is our cheapest (and most fun) option. Being the car lover of the group, I jumped on the opportunity to pick & drive the…
Going on a road trip and looking for suggestions.
Every year that I do one of these road trips, I learn how to prepare better for them. This is now the third iteration of what I expect to be a yearly ritual for me. So how do I prepare to drive a car home from a state far away?

We head out to drive and camp Highway 666 (191) to commune with the devil, as one does.
Braved the frigid weather for an impromptu drive up to Connecticut. Went from South NJ up to Bridgeport, New Haven, Mystic and various other places over Fri/Sat/Sun.
Amazing what a difference a short 20 hour car ride can make.
Woke up early, drove to the Holly Springs country store in Pickens, SC, to have breakfast with my buddy (biscuits with gravy FTW), now off to drive in the mountains.
Or at least most of it. Nevertheless, I safely traversed the wasteland to arrive safely in Houston. This is my first road trip in the K900. Summary to follow.
Some Radwood thing... In a 242 GT hiding in the back corner.
It was about time we went car camping in the 911 again. It’d been 2 years since our 3500 honeymoon roadtrip.
My wife wants to drive to visit family about 12 hours away. She wants to break up the drive into two shifts, which means spending the night in Jacksonville, FL, twice. I am trying to get excited about four days of driving for two or three days of visiting her family, and having something fun to do in Jacksonville…
