Hello every one, my name is Aaron and I will be getting my Crosstrek in just a few months now. This will be my first Subie. I am very excited as it will replace my Honda minivan....which is has seen more off roading that 90% of 4x4's on the road BTW. I live in Portland, OR and can't wait to have an adequate vehicle to take to the mountains to ski and along some nasty FS roads to get to the trailhead for backpacking. I am drooling over all the mods on here. Thanks to everyone with all the posts and pics, very informative. I look forward collaborative effort that makes a forum like this possible.
