Subaru is the signature car in the Pacific N.W. You see them everywhere. I call them Subarude because the drivers of them drive like they own the road. If I get one, I'll have to practice driving like that.  :D
My brother and his wife have had about a dozen of them, all different models. Been through snow, rain and deserts with his family and no issues.
Liar!!!!Filt!!!!

We get lots of rain and not much snow. When we do have snow, the street in front of my home is closed because I live on a steep and curvy road. Lots of cars end up off the road or crashing into each other. I've heard that on top of having a wrecked auto, they also get a fairly expensive ticket for violating the sign. I've seen plenty of Subarus making it up the hill with no problem. AWD would be great for those couple of days we have snow.

Why are you not worthy and why would you want to dominate this thread?

Too funny. Never thought about being dominated. I am a control freak. I suspect this means I have to be the dominator. Sometimes it might be interesting to let go of this and let someone else take all the responsibility....nah, can't do it.

no, thatīs not the original Nautilus pullover....itīs a machine build in Germany in the late 70īs with a 120 kg (264 lbs.) Stack.
Thatīs in my own weight-training room. The machines i get for free from my old Gym-Boss after he closed his Fitnesscenter about 18 Years ago. He said once to me....if you like you can have all plates and machines i canīt sell. You have 2 days to get the equipment out of the gym, "so i did" (get abotu 15 machines, dumbell sets, plates, Barbells,.....so iīm able to train when i like 24 hour. But i also have 1 contract with a local gym, but still use my own Gym when i like to train there.....no one disturbs...my musc is playing. Sometimes i invite Friends to come train in my "home-gym". A stationary bike for Cardio + a Crosstrainer i get also.....and they are still working.

That's a damn sweet deal, will drop you a PM in case I visit Germany :D
This reminds me to a recent conversation with a gym owner, who tries to sell a high end equipment line with air compression for 15k. So far, he hasn't found a party who's interested, so in case I find someone, 1k will be mine.

An advantage of being mature ancient enough to be on Medicare is the Silver Sneakers program. I recently discovered that I can belong to any gym that accepts Silver Sneakers for free. So far, in addition to the gym I've been a member at for the last 35 years, I've joined LA Fitness and 24 Hour Fitness. I am able to use any of their facilities as often as I want. Sure helps with location and routine boredom. Each gym offers some different equipment.

One of the LA Fitness gyms I've tried has a saltwater pool which I've not yet used, but I will. It also has a lot of different equipment I've never used before. I've been to three LA Fitness locations. All of them are unique. Some are better than others. Yesterday afternoon, I joined 24 Hour Fitness. The location is well equipped but was somewhat crowded at 4:30 p.m. when I toured the place.

Subaru is an awesome little car, all wheel drive and easily under 30K.

I ended up getting another Mazda. It is a CX-3, which has AWD, leather and suede interior, sun roof and so many safety and convenience features that it nearly drives itself. All I have to do is steer. :) It also gets up to 32 mpg. I have been averaging a little over 28 mpg. The four banger really goes and goes even better when I put it in sport mode.

The car cost me about $30,000 (I'm not much of a bargainer). I did manage to get a 1.67% interest rate, financing it for 5 years which was better than the rate the dealer offered.

This is the exterior and interior color combo.

not really....i can retire at age 60 (police-officer/criminalist since 1981).....so the + 60 years class maybe is an option, but i don't know how i look in 7 years....hope i can keep my motivation high through the next years. In the last 3 years i was able not to loose musclemass or strength. But every year you get older the "war" against aging gets harder, and of course you have to deal with it. It's also a difference if you train for yourself or to compete against other athletes. If you compete you go "all in" and don't care enough on your health, only thinking of that "damn competition" which is coming closer and closer.
