You're in Canada now...if you say braces here, people think you are a 16 year old girl with badly aligned teeth. And yes, there are suspenders and then there are suspenders.

I pictured you as in #1 not #2 and that's for sure


Good to know.

Yeah they are....250HP and corners better than my old Celica
I'd still prefer a Land Rover Series 1 with a grand total of 50HP.

We don't take our SUV (and truck) 'true' offroading, however we do go up some really questionable old logging roads.

My Forester has more than it's share of scratches (and now a puncture in the front bumper plastics). It is a somewhat capable machine offroad but I do miss having a low range. One day I will replace it with a Tacoma; better off road and more suitable for towing.
