    Last 911 drive for 2013…day trip notes and photos

    Our 997.2 typically sees 7 months of full time use, and 5 months of winter storage (Nov-March), and so it is this year.  With a sunny 7C day, but colder weather and some snow forecast for the next few weeks, this is likely the last fun drive for the 911 for this year (sob…).  Three hours of just exploring local roads on a beautiful day.  We are near the northern extent of grain farming in this area, so by 40 minutes we are out of the farm country and into mixed deciduous forest, small lakes and ponds.  Despite the warm air, a week of below freezing nights has left a thin layer of ice on most standing water.    Enjoy!

    Many thanks for posting, great photos! Smiley You are using your 997 much the same as we do, ours is pretty much laid up now and on life support courtesy of charge-O-Mat. 

    Our days of Porsche ownership probably sadly drawing to a close, finding it harder to justify the cost of running 3 cars, and with SWMBO destined to have a double hip replacement in the next couple of years we need to change to a car with a less compromised driving position.

    I'm surprised yours is resting so soon… somehow I expected that down in far south England you would have a longer spell before serious winter weather?
