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

    No one left but us guys.  We hiked in the snow, mud and driving rain in her honour today.

    I’m sorry Watt, but I can’t imagine any happier life for her than being with you.


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

    Sorry to hear about your loyal friend, he had a great life. RIP.


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

    Sorry for your loss, Watt. See the bright side of it, she got a long and happy life!

    RIP Sun Ra, all my thoughts are with the family. Those last moments after the fall must of been intense for her and you. Lived and gone in the mountain. A wonderfull life. 


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

    I am sorry for the loss.

    My dog died last month. A German Spitz/Pomeranian.

    He would have been 17 years old in July and a great company for the family. In the last months leading to his death he lost many of his abilities and he was in a bad mental and physical condition. No one in the family agreed to put him to sleep.

    He passed away one morning and I dug a grave in my garden and buried him like a human.

    RIP to SunRa, and to reginos's pup. I have no doubt they both had beautiful lives with you guys as their custodians. 


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

    We - Sun Ra and I, deeply appreciate your condolences.  She had a glorious life. She saved my life more than once, in the DEEP, the DARK, and the DRIVING HAIL.

    So sad and sorry for the loss - but as many stated she had the best possible life with you for sure ! 

     


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

    Condolences Watt.

    She was fortunate to have you in her life and vice versa.

     


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

    Yesterday we strode the last track Sun Ra did with us. We crossed the downed trees, creeks and deep snow I helped her over, her falling more and more, until we got to a slide covering the track...

     

    IMG_7608.jpeg

    running right over the creek which forced its way through

    IMG_7612.jpeg

    IMG_7615.jpeg

    Whilst the Youngers, and me still, could cross this avalanche, it was impossible for Sun Ra - I didn't have the strength to pull her out every step.

    As you age, nature becomes stronger and you become weaker; every step becomes a challenge.  But Sun Ra chose to keep going Way Back In, even into her dotage.  I compare this with Sky, who first would only go to his stick 200 yards from the house, then wouldn't leave the house.  Sun Ra is a Lead Bitch and never lost that spirit.  Sun and Surf are the same.

    Until the last river. 12 miles upstream from home, only 15 feet wide but ripping fast with the melt.  

    IMG_7625.jpeg

    We saved her, to no avail, the Lord decided to take her back.  This is particularly piquant as she is a mirror into my own return. For some time,  I've been joking Sun Ra and I were competing in aging and she was faster -- until the the few days... As Eric said:   "Lived and gone in the mountain. A wonderfull life."

    We'll keep heading In!  It's our Way - Way Back In - the only Way.  

    Oh I miss her so.

    You have such a passionate view on life watt, it’s evident in how you value the things that really matter. Thank you for sharing it with us, you’re an inspiration.

    M8 Competition Convertible Update

    I've never liked BMWs but the current highest performance line 3 to 8 are quite something.

    After running, [finally!] in the dry,  most recently to the hangar and back, the M8 CC is serious competition for not only the turbo S [window price 2/3, and market price 55% and much better looking] and even Ferrari [less, less less].  Performance is amazing and equal or better for those who run hard in the 100-165 mph range, on crummy two lane. So why pay up?


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

    this actually brought tears to my eyes....still am not over my chocolate that left far too soon due to a brain tumor

     

    sorry for your loss watt.....Sun Ra had a good life.

    Said to BMW good-bye quite a while ago but returned back because I like their latest models (not all of them though).

    The M cars, especially the M3/M4 and the M5 are quite something... Smiley

    The new XM5 is also amazing.

    Will be at a M driving event around mid June, can't wait to drive the M2 (haven't driven it yet).

    M3 Touring CS is rumored...same goes to the M4 CS (basically as CSL with xDrive but without carbon rear lid and laser tail lights).

    With the top up or down, the M8 stereo is amazing, normal never use them but going to town, it's superb.

    in the gun world, we have an expression: 3 is 2 is 1, meaning you need 3 of any gun you rely on, so now it's trucks:

    On the truck front, TAV in Albuquerque has ordered parts for the LC build 

    https://youtu.be/U9lDahNYoIk

    it's a great build for 65kusd, but the I found AEV, warranted factory approved jeep mods that get the job done for $24k.... And Rubicons have improved their rock ride by stealing detachable sway bars from the LC, and AEV improves it even more.  And then - what about a 0-60 Rubicon in 4.5 secs???  I'm sure RC knows this:  Rubicon 392 - 6.4 L Semi V8 !!

    j1.jpg 2.jpeg

    IMG_2438 2.jpeg

    and truck number 3 is Madame's Lab truck the expedition with low range.


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

    Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has always been the best off-roader for those that knows. It is THE benchmark.

    If a Rubicon can't cross something, nothing can. Not even a G Wagon, and that's already the best of the rest. 

    I love my Wrangler.

    My Jeep buddies been doing Moab for ages, they started the V8 conversions way back. Not even joking Wranglers are the best, every year they rescue countless Toyotas and Land Rovers.

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

    My stock 2016 Rubicon, which appeared here in Sedona, etc, was a nightmare for my fused spine - I wished more than once I was walking when coming down my tracks, it hurt is much due to that poor suspension.  The guys cat AEV assure me they've titzed out the suspension now, so I will report.

    Should I bother to modify the LC?  only $60k!?  


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

    Crossing the massive avalanche to get in.  Still weeks away from the road melting, it's down from 30' thick to 20'.
