Hello people of the internet!
Since my last post, I traded in not only my cursed accord but also the family odyssey. That's right, I'm living my best honda free life! (ok I guess not entirely true, I still have a honda mower)
Let me bring you up to speed. In November of 2019 my wife and I started the process of getting PADI open water certified. (scuba diving) We did our confined water training and the plan was to complete the training in the nice warm waters of the Caribbean the following spring. Unfortunately, that didn't happen (covid) and we ended up finishing our training in the nice cold inland waters of Minnesota. After that, I was smitten and I drug my wife along with me diving all summer. After the first couple trips to the dive sites in our family van, I realized we couldn't keep doing that and needed something more suited to "rough road" driving. Since we still (thought) we needed the space, the only logical thing to do was trade in my accord. But what to buy? We finally decided to check out Subaru, and I'm glad we did! We found a great dealer (St. Cloud Subaru) who was totally fantastic and I got an awesome deal on a very nearly almost new 2020 Outback. We drove the Outback to many local scuba diving locations all summer and into the fall, and affectionately named it the Scubaru.
