So last night my girlfriends mom invited my girlfriend and I to her vacation home outside Aspen, Colorado in late January. She said she would pay for everything and we could go skiing, snowboarding (and I haven't been snowboarding in like 5 years), hiking, and whatever else you name it. She also said she would pay for the flight...hold up.......wait a second....what......A flight??? No no no I have a Subaru, I tell her, and she looks at me like I'm insane that I would drive a car on that far of a trip and probably in some pretty rough conditions. But after some explaining about how my Subaru is an all around, any condition, any road surface, or just surface, badass piece of machinery, she kinda buys into it (but isn't paying for gas), an still thinks her Prius was a better purchase.
So I'm more excited about driving my car on a 2800 mile trip there and back than I am about actually being there, especially due to the fact that I should have my new motor in by the end of next week with a couple go fast goodies. and also thinking about a roof rack...maybe idk... All I know is I'm pumped and it's still another month away and there's still work to be done on the car.
Well I thought I would share that with you all. And if there is anyone that lives up that way that wants to go do some cruising let me know!!
You may want snow tires, you just never know when I-70 could be snow packed. Here is a link to colorado road conditions.

Premium gas here is 91 not 93, just so you know.
Also, enjoy the drive. When I drive to Kentucky I like watching the vegetation change with elevation.

Nice! have a good time. My subie should see some vermont snow this winter, nothing like colorado but still very snowy.
Just curious, are you going to do an oil change while there, or just tough it out until you're back?
Ahh, I see, I thought 2,800 was accounting for only one way. Didnt see the "there and back" part.
And I was told the service interval was every 3.5k miles. Either way I will continue to happily change my oil every 3k miles.
And the environment . Ask your Prius driving gf's mom. I'm sure she'll have a few words for ya ;-)

Due to the altitude the 91 works ok. You might notice a loss in performance since you're not tuned to the altitude, but I wouldn't expect problems from this. And going to the snow spots winter tires would definitely be good to have...
You can't have everything - where would you put it?
I'm jealous. I love road trips. Normally I get to drive from Cleveland to California and then back again during the summer. Can't wait until I get to do it again.

Subaru or not...I wouldn't have turned down a free flight.
