Enjoy the Wilde: Ice Age Scenic Trail

By | Enjoy The Wilde | No Comments

We’ve shared Subaru’s involvement with the National Parks Service and their dedication to helping preserve these National treasures. To help celebrate the centennial, we’re bringing you information about the beautiful National Parks right here in Wisconsin. Each Thursday, we will be featuring a new park location and present current issues facing the park and ways you can get involved in keeping some our most beautiful Wisconsin attractions around for years to come!

Enjoy the Wilde: Ice Age Scenic TrailEnjoy the Wilde: Ice Age Scenic TrailEnjoy the Wilde: Ice Age Scenic Trail
This week’s featured National Park is actually a National Scenic Trail– Ice Age Scenic Trail.  This national trail is about an hour away from our dealership in Waukesha and makes for a great in-state family road trip! The National Parks Service describes the trail on their website, “A mere 15,000 years ago during the Ice Age, much of North America lay under a huge glacier. Mammoths, saber tooth cats and cave lions roamed the earth! Some of the best evidence of this glacier is found in Wisconsin such as the state’s many lakes, river valleys, gently rolling hills, and ridges. The nearly 1,200 mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail, established in 1980, traces the glacier’s edge.”

About:

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is open year round; however, some segments may be closed during Wisconsin’s November 9-day gun deer hunting season.  Additional information about hunting seasons, trail conditions and closures along the rest of the trail is available from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Ice Age Trail Alliance. During hunting season, hikers are advised to wear blaze orange outfits so hunters can easily spot them. The operating hours for the National Park Service office located at 700 Rayovac Drive, Suite 100 in Madison are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except holidays. Although no pass or fee has been established for the scenic trail, some state and county parks along the trail may charge entrance fees, require camping registration, and permits. Make sure you check with the local land manager regarding possible fees and registration requirements.

How You Can Get Involved:

Volunteers are responsible for maintaining the trail and continually develop new trail segments as well as improving upon currently existing segments, working to get these pieces certified as official segments. Some tasks include constructing new trail, cleaning up brush and branches, building bridges, replacing old or damaged signs and constructing shelters.

Volunteer information is available online, but you should contact one of the following volunteer coordinators to learn more about how you can become involved in volunteer activities.

Looking to visit? There are fun ways to enjoy the wilde year around like hiking, birdwatching, and camping! The trail also has major interpretive centers explaining the glacial history and geology of Wisconsin located along the trail. These centers can be found in the Northern Unit of Kettle Moraine State Forest, Interstate State Park, and Chippewa Moraine State Recreation Area. All you need to do is pack up your new Wilde Subaru and go!

Subaru's Tribeca Replacement Spied

Subaru’s Tribeca Replacement Spied

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Subaru’s Tribeca Replacement Spied! We’ve shared that Subaru is planning to replace the Tribeca and now it seems that the vehicle has been spied during its testing. The three-row crossover SUV, suspected to be called the Ascent, features a boxy exterior design and abundant interior space. According to Greg Fink for Caranddriver, The brand formally registered the Ascent name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office earlier this month, leading many to believe this is the name for the spied vehicle. Subaru’s new “Global Platform” is expected to be part of the foundation of the Subaru Ascent and the model is expected to come with a standard AWD and CVT (continuously variable automatic transmission). The brand is using the only two non-luxury vehicles sold with turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, the Ford Explorer and Mazda CX-9, as bench mark vehicles seemingly suggesting that the new vehicle will rely on the turbocharged flat-four engine, possibly the 250-hp 2.0-liter unit found in the Forester 2.0XT. The potential Ascent is expected to debut as a 2018 model.

Child Passenger Safety Week

Child Passenger Safety Week

By | Dealer News | No Comments

This week is Child Passenger Safety week. Did you know that Motor Vehicle Crashes are the leading cause of unintentional deaths among children aged 1-19? In 2014 alone, 451 children aged 8 and under died due to a motor vehicle crash making up 15% of childhood motor vehicle fatalities. Sadly 116 of these children were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant car seat, booster seat or seat belt. Child Passenger Safety is an important topic and we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight Wisconsin Laws regarding child passengers and to urge you to take the safety of your child passengers into consideration each time you are driving in your Wilde Car.

According to the Wisconsin DMV, children must use a car seat until they reach age 4 and 40 pounds and a booster seat until they reach age 8, more than 80 pounds in weight or more than 4ft. 9 in. tall. Penalty for non-compliance with child safety requirements depends on the age of the child in Wisconsin. If the child is less than four years, the total penalty is $175.30 while fines for children between 4 and 8 is $150.10 for the first offense, $200.50 for the second offense, and $263.50 for the third and subsequent offenses. There are no exemptions from these rules, regardless of why the child was removed from the restraint. Shockingly, 3 out of 4 child safety seats aren’t used correctly. If you are worried about the installation there is a helpful video series provided by Zero in Wisconsin that illustrates the correct way to set up your child safety seats.

It is always safer for your child to ride in the backseat over the front and carseats are an important part of child passenger safety. Read below for car seat recommendations for your child from safecar.gov:

recommended-car-seat-graphic

Rear-Facing Car Seat:

Children under age 1 should always ride in rear-facing car seats. You should try to keep your child in rear-facing carseats until they reach the top height or weight limit allowed by the car seat manufacturer. Convertible and All-In-One car seats typically have higher height and weight limits and allow your child to stay rear-facing longer. Once your child outgrows rear-facing they are ready for a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether. According to Wisconsin Law children less than 1 year old, or less than 20 lbs. must be in a rear-facing child seat in the back seat (if so equipped).

Forward-Facing Car Seat:

Keep your child in a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether until they reach the top height or weight limit allowed by your car seat’s manufacturer. Once your child outgrows the forward-facing car seat with a harness, it’s time to travel in a booster seat, but still in the back seat. According to Wisconsin law, if your child is at least one year old and 20 pounds, but less than four years old or less than 40 pounds, they must be a in a forward- or rear-facing child seat in the back seat (if so equipped).

Booster Seat:

You should keep your child in a booster seat until they are big enough for a seat belt to fit properly, which means the lap belt lies snugly across the upper thighs (not stomach) and the shoulder belt should lie snugly across the shoulder and chest (not the neck or face). Once your child outgrows a booster seat, your child is finally ready for a seatbelt. According to Wisconsin Law, children aged 4 to age 8, and between 40-80 lbs., and no more than 4 ft. 9 in. must be in a forward- or rear-facing child seat in the back seat (if so equipped) or a booster seat.

Seat Belt:

Even though your child has outgrown the booster seat, safety is still very important. The back seat is the safest place for your child and you should have them sit in the back until they are at least 12 years old. Never start the car without making sure your children are buckled up! Teaching them this habit young will help keep them safe when as passengers and future drivers.

This week’s featured National Park is the Apostle Islands Lakeshore in Lake Superior, Wi. This national park is about six hours away from our dealership in Waukesha and makes for a great in-state family vacation! The National Parks Service describes the park on their website, “Along windswept beaches and cliffs, visitors experience where water meets land and sky, culture meets culture, and past meets present. The 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland host a unique blend of cultural and natural resources. Lighthouses shine over Lake Superior and the new wilderness areas. Visitors can hike, paddle, sail, or cruise to experience these Jewels of Lake Superior.”

Current Issues Facing the park include:

Proposed National Marine Sanctuary Near Apostle Islands

Citizen-driven proposals for new National Marine Sanctuaries in the Great Lakes are being accepted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Local citizens are proposing a sanctuary that would surround the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and while the NPS cannot officially make a statement this piece of legislation aligns with the conservation goals of the NPS, at this time. Learn more about the initiative and how you can get involved here.

Proposed Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation in Bayfield

A recent proposal by Badgerwood, LLC has been submitted to the DNR (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources) for approval to construct a housing facility for over 26,000 pigs. The propose storing more than 180 days of liquid manure and applying it over nearby agricultural fields; however, the overflow would drain into the park’s watershed. The NPS encouraged the DNR to do a “detailed environmental analysis” and has shown concern over the impact on the water quality for the park. Learn more about this issue on the DNR website.
