      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

climbers and subarus

Recommended Posts

OK, I can deal with half of the entire outdoor crowd driving subarus, mostly the legacy/outback/wagon type but what I don't get are the ones with all of the mega-corporate advertising stickers that usually cover every bit of available space on thier after market roof boxes. If you're at the crags and you drive a subaru then why do they have to tell everyone in the parking lot "duuuuuuuuude, I'm like, a climber". Is this some kind of pseudo-status thing or do these people actually enjoy advertising for the big companies?

 

Before anyone asks, yes, I drive a subaru and even have two stickers on it. They are VFA-125 and VFA-151 zaps and I only have them there because 99.9% of people wouldn't have a clue what they are about.

The stickers I had on my Subaru were from companies that supported programs I'm involved with by donating gear. They supported me...I don't mind showing my appreciation.

 

If you just go to REI and you snatch up a bunch of stickers just to put all over your car, then you're a GUMBY.

VFA

= vector force analysis?

= veterans of foreign aberations?

= vertically formulated articulations?

 

WTF? I'll bite.

V- Fixed Wing

F- Fighter

A- Attack

 

Yeah, The 125 is the west coast FRS. my bro was a hornet driver with the 151. Seeing as the 125 is a training squadron, they don't really count though afterburners are afterburners...

 

Were you in VFA-136 at Cecil?

If you want to put stickers on your car carrier or car or whatever go for it. One or two stickers is OK but excessive amounts are best. What would be really cool is CC.Com stickers. The only stickers that are stupid are calvin pissing stickers.

[Wazzup] What do you mean? Nothing reveals your true badass nature like a cartoon taking a leak. You're lucky I don't have room on my duelie's window for more of 'em or I'd put one up with you on it, right under my nascar sticker. I'm built Ford-tough just like my rig. I burn $40 in gas getting to work each morning and proud of it. Chevy sux, and I'll piss on it whenever I damn well please.

THANK GOD THAT GUY HAD 45" TIRES.....YOU KNOW HOW EASY IT IS TO THROUGH WOOD IN A BASIC SIZE TRUCK...MIGHT AS WELL MAKE IT A MAN CHORES.....

Best damn thing to happen to NASCAR was Ernhardt's (however the fuck you spell his name)death. Sheeit, I would have paid $10 to go to Daytona to laugh at all those sorry redneck fucks and see him bite it. Better yet, They need to start racing those penis envying F-250 and F-350's drivin fecal matter for brains drivers. I would pay at least $15 to see a bunch of those crash and burn.
