Take a rest from trucking!

Day trip into Quebec to get some work done, with the help of a friend.

I still love my Subaru, even if it is old and has high mileage (287.800 kms), but it does have to be babied sometimes...


Mmm... Nothing like a Subaru boxer engine, nice and flat. Easy to work on.

It needed a new ignition coil.

On the ferry, crossing the Ottawa river into Ontario.

Approaching sunset on the river.

MoonShaw, the ignition coil sends the electricity to every spark plug in the cylinders.
Marcoiris, not miles, it's in kilometers. This is Canada, eh. About 175,000 miles in American.
Joze, bienvenido a Canada! Nos hablamos!
Cheers y'all,

How on earth did you get 287.000 kilometers on it while you're trucking all day? :)
