    joe,

     

    the Pirellis are a great tyre, but its not really mud here - except the puddles along the world's narrowest and slowest Nordschlieffe....  i can go down the drive way here the whole way without catching any dirt on the valence if i ride on the high center and stay alert... but the tyres and wheel wells are muddy.  Shockin'  to quote RC Smiley

    i don't recommend an RS for mud with the cowcatcher snow plow valence in front, and such low clearance.  Better cars are 993 and 996 and later turbos -  i lived on 10 miles of dirt in Sonoita AZ in 2004, where the top 1 1/2 " turned to mud on all the roads when it rained and point and squirt was really fun, and the dealer would remove 2 inches plus of dried mud  from my wheel wells every service....  but this is not something you guys would find unusual in my lifeSmiley

    For those of you who know about fractals -  nature's basic geometry -  note the smaller crescent coves [there's 8 but hard to see them all in the pic] delineated by the rock heads in the sea off the beaches, which make up the sum total of this larger crescent bay.... classic fractal geometry as described by the mathmetician Benoit Mandelbrot.kiss  Click through to see better

    its blowing 50-60 knots, no electric power for 18 hours last night all across the Northland, warm fire kept it cozy; and it's lovely that even weather like this, I'm still comfie in shorts, a key criteriaSmiley

    Livin' large at the N.Whananaki Library, all you need to keep you in books!!!

    IMG_0548.JPG

    This 07 RS is a great car, much more fun than the 991 s cab, which has a great stereo and a convenient roof, but not much else.  The RS feels very light altho' not much lighter than the 991 s, its very tossable and just leaps up and goes when you drill it.  A highly fun car and an actual Porsche, which makes me miss them, not the 991 s - they're heavy and modern.  One look at the size of a turbo S, you think youre looking at a MB, its so big, so beyond 911 dimensions...

    Little girls like the RS too -  we were up in Russell, piddling dead slow due to pedestrians, down the beach front as a family came along and the little 4 year old redheadess made a megaphone of her little fingers and said [in a heavy NZ accent]: " You've got a tiny, lit-tle, race car!!!"

    as well as SH 1, the main highway sliding closed [just like Malibu!!!kiss]North of us and finally opening so we could roll for Cape Reinga.

    The 1 North from Whananaki is the ultimate 245 km Porsche Road, all the way to the end of NZ, Cape Reinga!!!!  I don't think I've seen such a stretch since Switzerland: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, very rare 5th which is not really needed as the gears are so tall, why leave 4th, mountains, valleys.  So much fun!!!!!  These three slides show the straightest bits we've seen on this run.

    The Top of New Zealand - Cape Reinga Lighthouse -  Tasman Sea  [west/left] meets Pacific Ocean [east/right] with some of the most violent weather on earth.  In a one hour and 1/2 walk in 60 knot rain, the wind drove the rain right though my coat, through my vest and soaked my shirt.  Nasty fun.

    Cape Maria Von Diemann, just SW of Reinga, a plethora of shipwrecks up and down this coast on the shoals, in a moment of Sun.
