Hot Time in California


In October of 2007, the wildfires hit San Diego, California, so hard we had to get out of town. While most were panicking, my boyfriend and I decided to road trip it up the coast of California.


We stopped for a night of camping in Pismo Beach and Big Sur before meeting friends in San Francisco. Our friends in San Diego complained of the smoky air and jealousy of our get-up-and-go attitudes. But that's why you own a Subaru in the first place -- so you can pack up the car and go wherever you want, whenever you want.

Neighborhood Subarubies


A friend and I recently purchased (two) 2010 Subaru vehicles after I spent one month test-driving almost every make of SUV in my area. I fell in love with the Outback, and, after purchasing it, I gathered several neighborhood Subaru owners together for a photo. They are all science teachers or professors (except me) who really believe in your product because of your green efficiency in making a Subaru.


We call the photo "Neighborhood Subarubies."

Crazy Yorkie



One Saturday morning, while running errands after taking my wife to work, I stopped at my dry cleaner's shop. I normally make a habit of turning off and locking my Subaru Forester at every errand stop. This time, I didn't.


When I completed my drop-off and pickup, I walked back out to my Forester, discovering my five-year-old Yorkshire terrier had stepped on the central lock button, trapping herself inside the running Forester (with emergency brake set, of course).


I decided to call the Subaru Roadside Assistance (SRA) number on one of my Forester's windows. After a few minutes (being asked a few safety-related questions and being connected to someone who could send help), my crazy Yorkie stepped on one of the window buttons, opening a back window.


I couldn't help but share this story with my fellow Subaru drivers.
