Subaru Offroad - Monsildale JUN 2011
This was a promotional trip put on to welcome new members to the club. A
large convoy of 15 vehicles and a successful day. No break downs or
boggings to report. Special mention and well done goes to Mick and Marion
for getting their unmodified current Gen Diesel Forester through the day.
It's the newest Subaru we've seen out on the tracks, great to see.
Apologies for the hand held in car work. Unfortunately the mount was not up
to the task that day. We wish there was more variety in the footage but,
the convoy was very long and the camera could only get so far.
Thanks for watching.

longview daily newpaper route owner falls asleep at 3 am last week .
State Patrol called several tow operators all declined the tow unless
state would supply a diver . The State gave the owner of the car one week
to get the car out of the river . If he did not get it out the state would
hire a recovery company to do it and then bill the owner . I told the owner
if he could get a chain onto the car I would make an attempt to remove it
. This wreck happened 60 miles east of my shop in Wakiakum County . The
owner Greg and his friend Josh did all the rigging I just told them
where to hook the chains . They save a lot of maney by doing all the
dirty work . The owner was excited to find all his cash and coins were
wtill in the trunk of the car . He had oabot $50 in change and cash in a
box locked in the trunk . He went off the wesst side of the bridge with so
much momentum that the car made it within 8 feet of the east bank . before
the sank Greg got out on the roof and jumped to the shore . He only got
his shoes wet . The river is at least 150 feet across . He also was
wearing his seat belt and upon impact the airbags deployed . The damage
to the windshield happened when the car hit the water . Greg is a very
luck man .
