This is Episode 8 of Hello Road, my channel about cars, travel, and exploring. Today is yard work day. No new car purchase today, just spending some quality time with my Poobaru Legacy, trying to make my yard look a little bit nicer. Yes, it is possible to use a hooptie to do yard work!

1998 Subaru Legacy Crashed Into Mulch

I started last month thinking it would be a great idea to have a truckload of wood chips dumped in front of my house. Finally, I could provide some semblance of order to the dusty, weed-filled landscape known as my front yard. Even better, the massive quantity of mulch was completely free, courtesy of a neighborhood tree trimmer.

But, as usual, I did not think this through. Now I had a project. A huge project. And as a new father, with a demanding little monster kiddo in my life, there is little time for anything beyond poopy diapers. This problem pile of mulch proceeded to taunt me every day for the last four weeks.

My wife suggested I be sensible and hire landscapers. Instead, I did what any self-respecting car hoarder would do—survey my squadron of terrible hoopties and pick the most suitable vehicle for the task at hand. The $800 “Poobaru” Legacy was the perfect choice for some light landscaping work. And why not make a stupid video chronicling my morning:

Ultimately the Subie did prove to be a great mulch mover, however in retrospect, maybe I should have fashioned a plow out of the skid plate. And somehow I didn’t manage to annoy any neighbors. I think they were just confused.

Out of curiosity, anyone here ever get stuck or crash on your own property? Or do anything car-related that raises the eyebrows of your neighbors?

His infatuation with weird cars along with a shoestring budget often leads him to filling up his driveway with a brigade of terrible, failing hoopties.
