    HI Watt,

    thanks for these pictures and Im deeply sorry about Sun - animals are like our own children. I really enjoyed and smiled at your pictures, the diry 991 cab, Sun on the passenger seat..these are one of the best pictures here on RT - instead of discussing every spy picture hundreds or thousands of tinmes - your thread birngs life to RT. We need more of these!

    thanks:)

    Sky does Green Street on Russian Hill, he walked two whole very steep block sides!

    He had to wear a leash out of compassion for the city people...

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    The end of the road, for "The Little EngineThat Couldn't", at least on station tracks.  A good try however!  5th crossing, 35 miles in on Hunter Valley Station [35 miles to a phone as well], 50 miles from pavement and 80 from town.  Lucky the PASM sensor held until 2 days later... No way out of here if it failed -  when it did the car was dragging on the skid plates on a benign dirt road in West Wanaka Station, close to town and we faked it home to triumph by Porsche Roadside Smiley actually fixing the thing enough to safely pound 500 miles to Top of the SouthSmiley, where CCS took over and flew in the service manager to fix it! Smiley Try that in America.  NFW.

    Porsche USA roadside is OK, but just experienced the sh.t that is Mercedes Roadside in USA, time to buy another Prius.Smiley  Hmmmm, having bad dreams, no substance behind them, about Landrover NZ roadside in similar circumstance....  but then again, in a RR, we would've driven in another 25 miles and hiked and driven out without issue -  except maybe for the stereo failing - everything's  a trade off! Smiley

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    This is serious off roading for a car not meant to do that...


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Oh, I beg to differ.  If you sell me an SUV, it should go on bad tracks.

    Porsche used to mean robust, as it still does in 911's.  As you've seen in this thread and the last 2 before this, [and I know from 20 years] of blithely cruising 911's down really bad dirt roads in Wyoming etc,  We routinely were 50 miles in on dirt [graded at least once a year], not station tracks in 964's, 997's, 991's.  They are tough cars.

    Contrast that with the emasculated SUV's that Porsche sells.  The original Cayenne went off road.  now Porsches, if you do the research, or try them, just dont cut it off road.  It's ironic that the gay pride and "industry"" show-off  suv of LA, the RR, as actually the best deep mountain rig you can buy, if you want luxury and highway speed as well.  Never in my life did I think I'd be ordering a RR,  but when the student is ready, the teacher appears.

    When you pass Hunter Valley Station Homestead, and open the locked gate, the sign says:

    TRACK SUITABLE ONLY FOR LANDROVER BEYOND THIS SIGN.

    And they're not f.g  kidding.  It's not a Porsche road, but for Hilux, series 70, jeeps, and Landrover, which is a generic, kind of like Kleenex in the states, not like the generic "SUV" in the states which means car which looks like a 4wd off road capable rig but is not, that is... a fake.  Nick is right, to large degree.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    Sky expects his sports cars to be robust on dirt, and while his 991 S amuses him, his not so robust Macan turbo does NOTangry

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    at 10,000 feet in the Tushar Range of Utah, 75 miles of dirt from west side to east side up and over, 20 miles up west side so bad it was first gear, and this part on top nicely graded.  Porsche [sports car] country, and if so, the Porsche SUV country should be rather more...

    Nice to see those pics again . An 911 in an unusual place is always of interest .

    Sky's range has improved to 300 yards from home from 50!  The Vet identified an object in one front ankle which is causing all the pain and hobbling, his wobbly shoulders and hips aren't holding him back as usual...  We shall see the cause of the ankle....

    Taking a break at our containers.  Sky did not paint these, but the 2007 fire did -  burned them and all our contents -  learning experience on what to store.....   BTW, the fence in the previous photo is a firewall to push the flames over the containers next time....
