Off Road Podcast Episode 229 - Subarus Aren’t Just For Hippies

Tonight we talk the Subaru craze and how you can get into one.

Welcome to the Off Road Podcast. Today we will be exploring the off road world-- whether you like crawling up rock ledges or enjoy exploring the back roads with your family. Stay with us to find out events in your area, off road news, and topics to interest every guy & girl who craves the outdoors as seen through the windshield. I am your host Broken Ben and I’m here with my co-hosts, Jobless Steve and Just Plain Jeremy and our guest Aaron. How’s everyone doing?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Ben - attached might lights and bought a wireless setup and broke my ankle

  • Jeremy - Nothing.  Been really busy at work.

  • Steve -  Been working on all my cars trying to get everything ready for me to leave my wife and kids.  Replaced the rear U joint on my Rear drive shaft, it had officially gone the extra mile. Took the kids shooting, getting them ready for hunting season.
