The fluid around the radiator cap is rusty but as it is very local I guess this is due to the cap itself.
Typical Subaru head gasket failure isn't coolant mixing into the oil. Its the combustion gasses seeping past the head gasket into the water jackets around the cylinders. There is a layer of teflon on the gaskets that eats away over time and causes the leaking.

I've never seen a Subaru blow a head gasket in a way that it gets coolant in the oil like most other cars do.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn't allow him to do if you were equipped
to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians."
