I have an ’03 Forester that I have taken to the Outer Banks of North Carolina two to four times a year since it was new. I’ve driven the beach from the Virginia border to Hatteras inlet while surf fishing. I don’t know of another vehicle that could handle the deep sand as reliably or economically.

I run a 100-percent volunteer nonprofit called inCourage foundation (incouragefoundation.org). We provide bedside gift bags filled with toys, activities, and games to children admitted to southern California pediatric hospitals. Our first partner hospital is Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), because it admits all children regardless of their ability to pay for care.
My Subie is our workhorse! We fill it to the brim with toy donations we receive from Mattel, Charisma toys, and boxes and boxes of pillowcases donated by The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Then we put together the bags and fill the Subie to the brim again with the gift bags for the kids at CHOC. We’ve delivered gift bags to more than 700 kids so far!
