    Went to Tampa, Key West, and Cozumel. At Cozumel we grabbed a ferry to Playa del Carmen and also hit Tulum while in the area. We are sailing back to Tampa now to catch a plane home. It was a lot of fun. Pics to come!

    I am definitely dreaming up an event for 2019. More to come on that.

    When you said PRS cruise I imagined Charon ferrying all of our wallets across the great marsh. So very metal.

    Yes, sir. It was a great time.

    I'm torn. I love winter, but I dislike driving in it due to the summer tires on my car. I should really adress that. I'd also prefer my pilot not have to deal with it.

    Easy fix. Go to TireRack.com, pick out a decent looking set of less expensive wheels, add Blizzaks to them, problem solved for a few hundred bucks. You’d pay more for a purfeling upcharge on your next PS. They deliver to your door or your fav install shop. Easy-peasy! :D

    Nokian also makes really good winter tires. I’ve been using them on the GTIs for the last 10 years.

    Heard good things about the Nokian brand. Couldn’t find them in “stupid-big” size for the 911 but I wouldn’t hesitate. I daily drove that car 12 months out of the year for 8 years through many snowy winters. Didn’t park it unless there was 8+ inches of snow, cause at that point, I was a snow plow! Your beast will do just fine with the right tires. Good luck bro!
