    Leaving for 6 Months, Miss Me?

    Well guys, it's been real. I'm glad I found such a great forum.

    In June I'll be heading off to Parris Island SC for Recruit Training. My goal is to be *that guy that smiles the whole way and come out a Marine on the other side. I love working out, camping, running, biking, swimming, and anything that's a good challenge; overall getting my ass kicked. I'm pretty motivated to accomplish this.

    Now I was thinking about having my dad drive my car once every week while I'm gone, but would it be better to just prep it and store it? If so, what would you guys do to store it; anything in particular I need to worry about with my WRX?

    Thanks in advance.

    Far better to just have someone drive it occasionally.

    Good luck with the program. Always remember Gibbs' Rule 12

    All the best!

    Yes, have someone drive the WRX from time to time. It will thank you for it later.
