    The Cayenne in Oklahoma

    Just got back about an hour ago. 1500 miles since last Monday. 500 today. I am settling back with a glass of wine; trying to counteract all the coffee I drank today. I first went to Tulsa, visiting family. As I mentioned earlier, the Cayenne received it's first speeding ticket. Atoka Oklahoma. The highway is like a freeway until it suddenly dumps into this town where there are police with radar everywhere. Oh well! The officer was very nice and very complimentary of the Cayenne.

    So, I drove on to Tulsa without major incident and took the photo below. I will post some more tomorrow.

    The Oklahoma High Plains.

    The Cayenne uses a lot of gas. I need that V-10 diesel right away. At 85 mph about 15 mpg. At 100 mph about 12.5 mpg. Also, the gasoline reserve. I believe the manual says there is a 26.5 gallon fuel tank including a 4 gallon reserve. My experience is that this is approximately correct. When the trip computer says I am out of gas and can go no further, I can only put in aproximately 23 gallons, indicating there was still 3-4 gallons left in the tank.

    Oklahoma investigates alternative energy sources!

    Near my mother's town there is a wind power farm being constructed. About thirty are up now and there will be a total of 68 upon completion.

    Re: The Cayenne in Oklahoma

    Oh no, big trouble!

    So I am taking photos of these generators when a construction crew vehicle starts coming our way. That is when my mother mentions that there were notices in the local paper from the construction firm saying they didn't want people driving around the construction site intefering with their work. The pickup pulls up, the driver rolls down his window and says "I am really sorry but I am going to have to confiscate your vehicle."

    I glanced at him said "Yeah, you wish!" Then I started asking some questions about the wind generators. He started asking about the Cayenne! He wanted to see the engine, He wanted to see the air suspension operate. He said he had been trying to get his wife to get one but that it was probably too much money. Maybe with the advent of the V6 dedam's fears of the Al Bundy owner may be realized. Actually, this was no Al Bundy. He was apparently a construction foreman at the site. But it is a different clientile than the typical Porsche buyer I think.

    Nice write up and pictures.

    As far as the ticket though, you should have offered the officer a ride and I bet you wouldn't have received the ticket

    Re: The Cayenne in Oklahoma

    Great pics

    I hope you enjoyed the drive

    Now I want to see your famus off road skills

    I really don't have any, I just do it. I don't do anything very dangerous. At least not on purpose anyway. I have been considering going to the Porsche Driving Experience for the Cayenne at Barber Motorsports. I have seen some videos of the training at the dealership and it really looks interesting. Maybe I could pick up some skills there. I would like to learn the limits of the Cayenne, just for reference. One thing I would like to know is how steep a hillside you can go across laterally. I have scared myself to death before, crossing a hillside on an unmaintained trail. Particularly when it is a long way to the bottom of the hill. You can really get yourself worked up worrying about a rollover.

    OK, two more travel photos and then I will quit. Honest!

    Now that we have seen the Cayenne with alternative energy sources, here is one next to the fuel source Oklahoma is most famous for. BTW, my uncle says if you have one of these every quarter mile, your ranching operation can be successful.

    And last: Porsche truck meets Chevrolet truck!

    When I was driving through this stuff the park assist sensors kept screaming at me "Whoa ... Stop! ... Hey, what are you doing? ... Stop! ... Stop!"
