27" of desk swallowing, Holy crap, iMac (2013 model)...

An excellent deal over the holidays at B&H, it is silly quick compared to my aging MacBook Pro (2010 model). First new computer in almost 7 years, makes video & photo editing so much easier.

Same for us. We've had ours for about 18 months and we love it. It's great kid-hauler.

Stock photo but not a stock bike... Added a 2016 BMC gf02 to my fleet.

Built with SRAM Rival 1x11, Fizik saddle, and a few other bits - it is a great ride. Spuds arrived today, so I'll be back on it this weekend.

Yessir. And it rocks.

It's really built with the intention/ability to switch between gravel, CX, and road. I can swap to a smaller ring up front, slap a bit wider tires on it, and dive into gravel or CX.

A bit of an "all-in-one" setup.

Well....

I was granted one of the items on my bucket list this weekend... Yesterday I finally pulled the P-car trigger....

Last year I had almost talked myself into getting a Cayman.... But kept putting it off...
Then the new 718's came out... Beautiful looking cars both stronger and faster than the 6 cylinder Caymans they replaced.... But I really wanted a naturally aspirated flat 6.... Felt like I missed the boat...

Nothing at the two local dealers with any leftover new 2016 models...

Started doing a new inventory search at all of the Porsche dealers in the tri-state area.... Found some Caymans, but I either didn't like the color or they weren't the "S"....

Kept expanding the circle... Low and behold I found 3 "New - Old stock" Caymans down in Tennessee.... A Blue 2015, a red 2016 and just what I was looking for.... A 2016 Jet Black metallic Cayman S with a bunch of goodies....

Talked to my wife about it... She was all in favor with getting it...

Gassed up the Explorer and fired out of here at 4:00am yesterday... 6-1/2 hrs later we pulled into the dealership in Tennessee...

Looked it over... Took a test drive... Asked them to put it on the lift and went over it with a flashlight in hand for a close inspection of the underside.... Looking for anything that didn't look right... They made a real nice offer... Signed the paperwork and was back on the road headed back home with my new P-car....

The Sport Plus with the Sport Exhaust system is something else when it down shifts...

My MINI's new stablemate...
