    Carlos, I remember also when your wife was pregnant and when you got your daughter. That was a little after I joined RT. Crazy we are still around !!!! 

    Time flies by indeed. Smiley

    My youngest boy is also 16, but at home with his two older brothers. I am so jealous that your's is at boarding school angry

    I am happy my kids are still at home as well but of course I would be happy as well if they would go start their own life... Smiley Smiley

    I feel left out, can never post any snow pics from here indecision so I will at least post photos from yesterday's snowfall in Sussex my daughter sent me at her boarding school

    Wow, where did the time go? I still remember like it was yesterday that you mentioned on Flat-6 that you were stopping with riding the bike because you had become a dad...

    Looking at the first picture I was about to write the same post as you Joost...Except I remember Carlos's post on Rennteam instead (I have never been on Flat-6) announcing he was a father and he was stopping riding bikes. I also recall the black 997.1 Carrera S with -20mm sport suspension he owned at the time.Smiley

    Great memory Smiley

    For us it is the opposite. We can't wait that they get out but they have no intention, life is way too good and confortable at home Smiley We have two good universities that open the doors to anything within a 10 min walk from the house. Why would they want to go somewhere where they have to fill up the fridge and cook by themselves Smiley

    Lol dude, you two been on here for 18 and 19 YEARS!! 

    Smiley you are not that far off either Smiley but yeah, almost two decades Smiley

    Great snow pics!  Daughters are the best. Making me feel old at 59. My two are 32 and 28.  Just wait until you are an Opa like me. 

    "Opa"? Are you from Dutch descent Mike?
    I have no children myself, but my two nieces mean the world to me. 10 and 12 now, and I love spending time with them.

    Are we getting into niece appreciation territory now? Because my first niece is going to be 5 months tomorrow, and I'm very excited about being an uncle.

    Definitely, mate! Being an uncle is the best! You can spoil them to no end and if they start misbehaving give them back to their parents :-) It is a very grateful role to fulfill. My nieces love to spend time with me, and I have little traditions with them such as baking gingernuts for "sinterklaas" (our beginning of December equivalent to Santaclaus) and putting up the Christmas tree together. I took my eldest niece wingsurfing with me in september and she loved it! I hope you will get to be as close with your niece as I am with mine Smiley

    That sounds lovely! I'm very excited about creating memories with her. My brother says she looks more like me than anyone else (makes sense, we are fraternal twins), and in my mind that would just be the coolest thing.

    HaHa,

    She reminds me of my freshman suite mate at Cornell, who from Florida stood outside and stared up wonderingly at the first snow fall he'd ever seen.

    The buildings of her school are lovely and nicely set off by the white stuff.

    at 6000 with a temperature of over 60 F he lost all hope. 


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

    Ozzy, you need to come over on this side for a while!

    We've had over ten feet at 6,000', and a little freezing rain last week that created a crust allowing 3/4 of the Crewe to cruise anywhere they choose without falling through:

    Always look on the positive.  The warmer temperatures this winter in Europe means fewer people are facing financial difficulties and a lack of heat caused from the shortfall of natural gas from Russia.

    That's what I was thinking of on the ski slopes indeed. Smiley

    Might have saved our economy this winter.

    Frank, 

    Your trip combined with Ozzy's shallow snow pack experience does seem to indicate you have had a poor snow winter??  Maybe it means the Porsches and Ferraris can come out earlier than usual!kiss

    And it still looks lovely and ski-able up high.


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

    And speaking of dusting off hardware, I got out the Super King Air with its upgraded engines for yet another surgeon visit, for a second opinion on my hip replacement.  Such a great plane.

    Watt, Our neighbor still has his King Air after adding a Falcon 900 LX to his stable to replace his Learjet. He said that plane is a longterm keeper.


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

    Frank, still owns the Ferrari? I thought he worked something out with Ferrari and dealer to get rid of it.Smiley
