Default Coast to Coast - Some pics.

​​3000 miles in a week. District of Columbia to California (so far).

Thought the community may enjoy some pics.

Observations and questions:

Michelin Alpins not super happy in 70 degree weather -- although much happier than the Sport Cup 2s in cold weather....

93 Octane seems to run dry west of Houston.

911's (all vintages) spotted after leaving DC area until Scottsdale ... a grand total of 2(!). 2 more in Scottsdale. Palms Springs ... stopped counting.

Used 2 "clicks" of oil. Seems about right, me thinks?

Is varying the RPMs a "thing" past break-in? Some of these stretches are, well, looong w/o much reason to vary.

Theoretically -- more fuel efficient to run with Exhaust Valves open?

Kills bugs fast.

Flings salt fast, too.

No, they don't look as cool.
At peace with choice, for me. I call the semi-manuals: 'LW Sofas'
