#BabyDriverMovie
 
Tristar Pictures' Baby Driver is the one of the best-reviewed movies of the summer! Written and directed by Edgar Wright, the action, crime thriller features a later model Subaru WRX as a heist getaway car driven by the main character Baby, played by Ansel Elgort.
 
Two fun facts:
 
• Allpro Subaru, an independent, Subaru-specific shop near Atlanta, built a total of five red 2006-2007 WRX models for filming. Four were working stunt cars and the fifth was used for scenes filmed inside the vehicle.
 
• A high-speed reverse 180 and flawless drift-around-a-corner stunt required the conversion of one of the WRX stunt cars to rear-wheel drive.

  Don't Feed the LandfillsSpotlight
Grand Teton National Park
 
Subaru shares its knowledge of zero‑landfill practices with the national parks to help reduce landfill waste. Here's what's going on at Grand Teton as part of our #DontFeedTheLandfills initiative!
 
2017 Solar Eclipse Across AmericaTotal Solar Eclipse
The 2017 Solar Eclipse Across America will be visible on August 21, 2017, across the continental United States. The centerline of the solar eclipse will pass over Grand Teton National Park, placing it in the path of totality, which means park visitors will experience the moon's shadow rushing toward them with the Teton Range backdrop. If you're lucky enough to be there, look for our very own Subaru Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers who will be on-site to educate park guests about reducing landfill waste.
 
NASA provides great tips on how to view the eclipse safely and photograph it with your camera or smartphone.

Did You Know? The last total eclipse for the contiguous U.S. was in 1979. The next one will be in 2024.

Two art installations designed and executed by Jackson Hole High School students were recently unveiled at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park. Funded by Subaru, the installations showcase recycled materials in engaging ways to encourage recycling for park visitors.
 
"This program really encourages visitors to think about how recycling can reduce waste going into landfills," stated Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. "The younger generations will be a driving force in guiding the planet to a greener future and Subaru is proud to support these students in that journey."

Your Love Story
 
"Lake Murray, South Carolina, here we come!"
 
Our 2014 Forester is always ready to haul our kayaks to the local waterways. A Subaru has never let me down despite having lived in West Virginia most of my life. (My wife, Joyce, and I retired and moved to South Carolina in 2016.) I've surprised many 4WD vehicles in snowy conditions! I will always own a Subaru and they are hands-down one of the best vehicles on the market today. Period.

Insider Tips
 
10 TIPS
 
Ten Tips to Avoid Distractions While Driving
 
1.  Fully focus on driving. Do not let anything divert your attention! Actively scan the road, use your mirrors and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists.
 
2. Store loose gear, possessions and other distractions that could roll around in the car, so you do not feel tempted to reach for them on the floor or the seat.
 
3. Make adjustments before you get underway. Address vehicle systems like your GPS, seats, mirrors, climate controls and sound systems before hitting the road. Decide on your route and check traffic conditions ahead of time.
 
4. Put your electronic distractions aside.
 
5. Snack smart. If possible, eat meals or snacks before or after your trip, not while driving. On the road, avoid messy foods that can be difficult to manage.
 
6. Secure children and pets before getting underway. If they need your attention, pull off the road safely to care for them. Reaching into the backseat can cause you to lose control of the vehicle.
 
7. Finish dressing and personal grooming at home – before you get on the road.
 
8. If you have passengers, enlist their help so you can focus safely on driving.
 
9. If another activity demands your attention, instead of trying to attempt it while driving, pull off the road and stop your vehicle in a safe place. To avoid temptation, power down or stow devices before heading out.
 
10. As a general rule, if you cannot devote your full attention to driving because of some other activity, it's a distraction. Take care of it before or after your trip, not while behind the wheel.
