Yep so it was time to fill the little wagon and head up to Wyoming for the weekend to see my mom and little brother.

We leave about 3:30 am friday and show up at moms at about 10:10am 430 miles later.
Spend the weekend and left this morning at about 6:00am. Got home at about 12:30pm. Made better time today.
Had fun drove fast now I am tired.
Good night

Used to do a bit of driving myself like that. Leave Milwaukee at about 4 in the afternoon get to New Jersey in time for breakfast at about 7 AM. Seems it was about 5 or 600 miles.

Did it in a bigger wagon, though. Chevy Caprice estate, but had two kids sleeping in the back and wife sleeping in the front. Did it once between Milwaukee and Dillon, Colorado.

It's a lot easier doing it at night, no loonies on the road, just the truckers. With a CB you could even talk to someone in the middle of the night so you could stay awake.

Cool.:cool:

The missus and I took her two week old OBS(2002MY) on a good road trip last Thanksgiving. We spent two weeks on the road and drove from Miami to a small town in Iowa about two hours south of Minneapolis, MN. We put a few thousand miles on the car during the trip and really enjoyed it. I missed my RS, but still had a nice 2.5 to drive on the sweet dirt roads up there. :)

We also used the car as a rally support vehicle a few weeks later at the Sandhills Sandblast Rally in South Carolina. It was a big hit and everyone loved it.

Now the car has 22k on it and its almost a year old. :) It reminds me of the trips I used to take in my 1983 GL wagon with my parents when I was little. :):biggest:

My wifes 00 Legacy Outback wagon takes us back and forth in NJ to visit both mothers. The 98 OBS wagon with the 99 RS nose is getting a lot of stares, especially with the new PIAA fogs, Hella 300 Driver lights and the light grills.

The new WRX seats in the front make it a much more "fitting" drive position, the Tein front coils have dropped the nose a bit much but when we get the right coils on the rear it should look good and flat.

I should get pix within the next day or so and will post them.

By the way, the 71 Pontiac LeMans 3 seat wagon is up for sale.

Hey all!

Hey everyone. I'm a new member to RS25, but I've got a wagon! An Outback at least. :) I'm too tall to fit into those puny RS's :D

Wagons are great for road trips aren't they? I've put about 26K on mine this year in trips. It's been well used!

I took a trip this year during the Memorial Day holiday. Drove my '93 Imp L wagon from Jersey to Miami. It was my first road trip ever and I didn't have much time to prepare since it was a family emergency. Actually, I don't know if it qualifies as a road trip because of that. Anyway, it was a good experience and I had no doubt the little wagon would make the trip without a problem. Good thing I had just given it a full engine service about two months before. I packed the car up with my 6 and 7 year old, my wife, and mom-in-law. Eight day stay and I only used the rear cargo area- no roof rack, no trailer hitch.
