I don't get over here at Pelican much, but wow, what a trip! Thanks for all the pics! Especially enjoyed seeing my TT at RRIV a couple cars down from the RS.

Wish I had met you there.

Drive safe and well.

Just got back from another 2,000 mile short road trip to south Texas. Another shakedown for this summers 8,000 mile trip my wife is coming on this time. May try to swing through Seahawks neck of the woods and compare notes.


Did have some drama in Austin but was luckily only 4 blocks from my sons apt. Ka BAM red gen light KAAA BOOOOM. now I know why the hard core 356 guys bring along generator pulley halves. Which I did not have with me at the time. It hit the rain shield above it so hard it put a good sized dent in it. Called the local Porsche dealer on a whim. Sir we can get you the part but it has to come from Germany. Yea right ok there bub. Thinking I'd read about a shop in central Texas that restored 356's and I struck gold. Bill Hamilton was not only 23 miles from where I was but he had one. Borrowed a ride from my son and had it back in the car that afternoon and he gave it to me. A very cool laid back guy that lives in a house the size of a school. Because it was one. Continued on my journey the very next morning and picked up the 2 halves at a vee dub place there in Austin on my way back through on my return journey who, wow found the part in Dallas. Duh. So on my next trip I am getting a spare generator even though it was recently gone through.

Thank you Bill Hamilton. We old 356 guys apparently are more common than I thought.
