    This pic is really great.Smiley Everything seems to be so clean:  the sea in the background, the air, the sky, the trail and last but not least: even Sun and his buddies appear clean and tidy, walking in a row like soldiers.

    This dog lives a happy life. kiss

    Regarding the 991, I don't want to be a downer but the lettering seems to be a little low IMO. The porsche letering aligns with the white lines in the rear lights to make it more cohesive. By removing the top lettters you might want to consider bringing the Carrera S a bit higher to break up the space in the rear better and not end up with a large flat piece between the lights. 


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

    Yes Enmanuel, but unless that starts to bug me, I'll wait another 10,000 miles or so, but you're right!!!

    the 100 L tank is listed on my order form so i think its going through...

    If the order system has accepted it, then it is obviously technically feasible. Smiley

    I'm very sorry to hear I was right.  Smiley  My query was based on the past versions, as I said, so I couldn't be sure if the same restrictions need necessarily apply to the 991.

    Thanks Hans,

    Sun sends his regards!  He's still bumming over no large tank in his GT3Smiley

    He's doing very well, so sprightly he's taking two short hikes a day, as Storm slows him down so much on the morning hike, he needs moreSmiley

    Do you see any other animals when you do these trails ?

    Gnil,

    lots of deer, bucks alone some huge who stare at us, and does with children, they use our trails and their network which criss crosses ours, bounding away when we come, they are shockingly fast and graceful on super steep slopes. Bobcats and coyotes.   Redhawks and very early owls will leap off a perch when we come along.  Now the dogs are so old they dont even need to be called from beginning to follow a scent, the wildlife thinks the dogs are just other wildlife, no threat.  Rattlesnakes in baby season and when they want sunshine on the trail.


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

    It must make your trails that much more pleasant .  I would be happy to see all but the snakes !!

    Over here the mountains are now covered with snow as we had a few days of cold and bad weather . It should melt again this week as temperatures will be back to normal .

    Gnil,

    Does VD mean Villeneuve?  not knowing Switzerland other than Ascona, i would think your snow level was already down to 2500 meters by now?

    The rattlesnakes are part of the ecology, eating our rats and feeding the king snakes and the redhawks.  We always envision the spirits of our dead dogs in the Redhawks [the pair who own the canyon are Surf and Sandy, and the single is Star] which because we are high, fly by at eye level.  One great image of the canyon  is Surf and Sandy in their redhawk form fighting over a rattlesnake, one clutching it near the head, the other the tail end, as they scream at each other flying by our deck....Smiley

    No, VD means Vaud ( the state I live in ) . Villeneuve is not too far, at the end of lake Geneva . I am around Lausanne, facing Evian on the other side of the lake and the french alps.

    The snow has come down to 1200 m last week . But now it has warmed up again and all has melted up to about 2500 m . Snow falls are now between 2500m and 3000 m .

    In three weeks, Storm has gone from unable to go up the stairs, with muscle atrophy, to the mailbox, to 200 yards, then 1/4 mile, then 1/2 mile and now round trip to the creek, a bit over a mile, climbing over rocks up the creek,  He refused to act crippled whilst quite crippled!!!  The pure embodiment of FORTITUDEkiss  IN HIS FAVOURITE HOLE
