What do the Dutch do cross-country?

I have a new commute that is hilly and mostly off-road, instead of my previous flat all paved one. I don't think my Dutch bike is suited to this, but I LOOOOOOOVE it so much. I never really enjoyed cycling before I got it. Is there a better suited bike that will make me equally happy? [more inside]

Looking for a "car club" (I think?)

I am looking for a Subaru enthusiasts group in the Puget Sound Area or nearby. I have an older Outback wagon, nothing fancy...and would love to find a "general" Subaru club, or more specifically, one that focuses on the off-road capabilities of Subarus of any kind. Most of the Subaru clubs I see are all about the WRXs/ pimped out street car type.

Fun 4x4 blogs and resources?

I just got a Jeep and am looking for fun blogs and resources, something like Jalopnik but focused on 4x4s. (incidental language question: would you call a non-Jeep like this a Jeep? In Brazil we do, curious about your neck of the woods)

Find me an inexpensive, reliable, good mileage 4wd hiking vehicle

As an avid hiker, I'm looking for a (much) more capable trailhead vehicle than my current 98 Ford Escort. Requirements are inexpensive, good mpg, 4wd (preferably on demand and with 4low), good clearance, reliable and inexpensive to maintain. For reasons I can't fathom, I've been thinking about importing a Suzuki Jimny from Japan and have some questions about that too. I live in Canada (Vancouver). [more inside]

Buying a new bike

I'm going to be at U Colorado in Boulder for the summer and I'm interested in buying a bike. I'm willing to spend about $200 on a new one (which I'll take back to my school after the summer) and I'd preferably like a city bike that I can also occasionally take off-road. Since I got my last bike when I was in middle school (I'm 20 now), I wanted to see if anyone could offer advice or a guide on buying a new one. [more inside]
