It's been some time since touching in here, so I'd like to share an update about my summer trip.
In my last post I outlined the preparations made for this trip and for towing my Porsche along.
Well the efforts turned out to have been worth while as having a runabout along has really added to the enjoyment if the travels.
The first leg of the trip took me from Az to the coast in southern Ca.i then headed north along the coast eventually reaching the border with Canada.
Especially enjoyed hyw 1 north of San Francisco, and the Oregon coast where I had not traveled before. And was very surprised at the extensive long beaches there in Oregon and dunes in the southern part of the state.
Washington also had more beaches than I had realized, mostly lined with piles of drift wood, and by that I mean logs, big ones. Amazing amounts of timber along that coastline.
The exceptional high temps inland this summer kept me pretty close to to the cooler coast areas.
Once reaching the Puget sound my plan was to head inland to visit Idaho, Montana and the other states in that area that I'd not been to before.
But a tortuously hot slow drive thru Seattle on the hottest day of the year caused me to rethink that plan. And instead saw me head back down the coast heading for the Monterey area of Ca for car week there.
This ten day period in August includes the Monterey Historics, vintage sports car racing at Laguna Seca race track. And many car shows leading up to the Pebble Beach Concours show the primer show in the U S. As well as many auctions happening throughout the week. All in all fully packed week of a car lovers dream events. Definitely a bucket list affair for me, and it did not disappoint!
After that adventure wound down I finally did turn eastward. Traveling thru the valley of central Ca. And headed into Yosemite N P. As a fun route thru the Sierra mountains.
Then a series of longish days of driving have now lead me to Steamboat Springs Colo. And to continue to Colorado Springs for a family gathering.
The above is a snap shot of a wonderful travel adventure. That I have been writing up in a thread on my favorite Porsche site, sort of a travel log with pics.

R Ving with 911 in tow - Pelican Parts Technical BBS
The trip to this point has been over 4,500 miles and the coach has done very well.a couple of small repairs / maintaince stops along the way were replacing the brakes in the drive axel in a Monterey, the one I hadn't gotten to yet.
A pause in Salt Lake City for new front tires for the coach, and back tires for the car, as they had worn badly while towing. This called for an alignment redo for the Porsche, which hopefully will improve its tire wear issues. Oh , I changed the starter in the Porsche while at a friends place On Whidby Island too.
But really not many problems for a nearly 30 year old motorhome and a over 35 year old sports car on a pretty long trip.
I'm really enjoying the travels and adventures along the way.
