Had fun yesterday on Hatteras Island introducing the new car to the beach! I've been going down the the outer banks my entire life and driving on the beach much of it, but was a little wary of how an AWD would do as opposed to standard 4WD. Happy to report that it did just fine! Also, first time driving a manual on the beach!

Any more plans for off-road use of your Crosstrek? Glad to find another manual transmission Crosstrek driver willing to take their Subaru off-road :)

Absolutely! I purchased an annual beach permit, so am definitely looking forward to more beach driving on future trips! Would also love to find some trails or such closer to DC in the mountains. I'm a die-hard manual driver, so (as I'm sure you know) finding an off-road capable manual didn't present many options (it's how I happened upon the Crosstrek, which I knew virtually nothing about before going to look at one). Loving it!!
