    Holy sh!t dude, that's quite a road trip. Sugarloaf to Jay?! I mean, those are two great mtns, but good g0d that must have been a long drive. I bet it was "scenic" until the moose showed up. Plus didn't you have to drive by Saddleback, Sunday River, Burke, etc to get there?

    it was like 3 seasons ago when maine got pounded in mid December and vt had nothing. I went up to the loaf on 12/22 but it then began to rain in Maine and pound at jay. Went to bed at 6 pm, woke at 3 am, started driving. Hit the moose near island pond vt. It was a beautiful drive in the light snow. Came to a hill, couldn't see the moose til the crest, and he was right in front of me, nothing I could do. Hitchhiker for an hour before the first car even passed. First car, a Mack truck, picked me up and took me to town. Crazy day. Jay reported like 18"

    Funny thing, I ski all over the northeast and have for many years. All behind the wheel ski trip travel. In addition to that, for about 7 yrs my work required me to drive all over New England, including frequent trips to Bangor, Burlington, Littleton, etc.

    In all that time of driving and staying in the northern areas of VT, NH, & ME - I've never seen a moose. A lot times my driving is at night or before dawn in the morning. People frequently caution me to be careful because driving in those areas at night - there's a lot of moose strikes. Nope, not a single moose. No exaggeration that short of living in those areas I should be the person who is most likely to have encountered a moose. Not even a glimpse of a piece of moose through the trees. And yet I've only seen a moose on videos & pictures.

    It's gotten to the point where when I go up north I am looking around thinking "there's got to be a f_cking moose somewhere around here" and I just want to see one so I can say "OK, now I've seen a moose".

    But then again, I don't need to see a moose like you did either. . .

    Sorry about your car - but that is pretty classic.

    All jokes aside glad you're OK dude. They say what exactly is wrong with the Subaru in the front end?
    My couch might pull out but I send it.
