Currently, my newest, most reliable vehicle is an 18-year old Toyota 4Runner. Being my daily driver, it spends 95% of its time on pavement, stuck in traffic, or running boring errands. But it’s that other 5% that is responsible for me sinking thousands upon thousands of dollars into maintenance and modifications. While my 4Runner is plenty comfortable to gobble up mile after mile of highway, it’s really happy as soon as the pavement ends. Like a pig in mud, my 4Runner is happiest in… err… mud. And rocks. And climbing up and down hills. And going over logs and ruts. The less of a “road” it’s on, the better. Which is exactly why I spent a day putting my 4Runner through its paces on the Spider Lake Trails in the Foot Hills State Forest up near Pine River, MN a couple weeks back with some other Toyota enthusiasts. Plus, it was a good excuse to take a #MorriesRoadtrip! More >

Polar Plunge – Saturday, March 4th
The Minneapolis Polar Plunge is this weekend, and our team from Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru will be out there plunging the day away! The weather is currently projected to be in the 40’s, which doesn’t make it great for lake plunging…but it could certainly be worse! This event benefits Special Olympics of Minnesota, and is certainly a worthwhile way to spend an afternoon!
