    Thats just a toboggan terrain park :D

    This day last year we were still skiing on Mt P, with three more days of the season to go:( Quite a contrast:( I tried to look at Dashboard to see where I was skiing this time last year, but seems to be down. However, I know I skiied Eyre on the last day, 13th:)

    After chatting with @Normo who I bumped into surveying Eyre this morning. Found a few turns with @Annago just up the road:thumbs:. Nice being out there.

    Bringing back to few memories there @rocketboy
    My 3rd last day of the season and last time that I've done turns like that.
    Oh well, here's to 2021.

    it appeared just before 6pm yesterday.
    Looks like a bushwalker decided to have a bit of fun and dumped a handful of snow there for fun

    and this day last year was the last day of the season. Dashboard is down, so I can't check. However, I know I skiied first and last lifts on the day, and skiied on Mt P. Very different year from this year in many ways:(

    Hi Normo
    You will be able to "forget the forecast" with a new set of Nokians on the Subie from Ian at Tyrepower in Jindy.

    Pffft.......... Yours ??? I recognize you're mug in the passenger seat buddy.

    I know you want into the Subie Ribbon Club. But slipping into the passenger seat, to photo bomb an Insta pic, reeks of desperation mate. <shakes head>

    In my opinion, nothing though wears down that new car feeling like driving it to Perisher.

    Highlights from season 2020

    Many Subie's are great for holding value. I paid $30.5K for my Subie. 19,000 km and 16 months later, the cheapest same year, model, sub 20K km, in NSW, is $29k.

    It was the same when I bought it. And why I bought a 200km demonstrator.

    My current XV was a demonstrator - a manual (which seemingly nobody wanted) so it only had 20km on it! Bottom-of-the-line model but I put a Pioneer stereo on it with CarPlay, DAB+ radio, etc. Runs really well, spends its life driving to the beach or Perisher (as does its owner (blush)). Attempted arty photo of its back window - featuring an on-topic Perisher sticker - and a couple of surfboards inside:



    I can’t remember how many Subarus my wife and I have owned. We have had at least one continuously for the last 36 years or so!

    The first Subaru I bought was a 1984 Touring Wagon, which we gave to my dad ages ago and he lent back to my various kids to learn to drive on (4 speed manual - has a better carburettor and clutch than new in it but otherwise as-standard). It still runs ok; I have no idea of the mileage but it would be significant!

    My 3rd hand, 2007 Subaru Outback has not skipped a beat since I bought it 6 months ago.

    3 trips to the snow and back, 2,500kms for dominos delivery’s is lockdown and I still can’t complain about it.
    Only downside is 13L/100KM isn’t exactly fuel efficient....
    They are good cars anyway you slice it.
