What's missing from these pics..

...a third one with my Boxster!!! I'm on vacation in the Adirondacks of NY and it has been above normal temps and just beautiful...the roads up here would be a blast. I seriously have got to get an older high mileage one and just leave it up here at my Mom's house. For those two weeks a year I spend here I would be in heaven. The leaves are peaking and the hiking is great.

Great views. Leaving a high-mileage "insert car brand here" 50 weeks per year sitting would be a bad idea. A better idea would be.......... drive it out there.

I couldn't agree more. I had the good fortune to grow up there. The roads around Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Tupper are the best. And, the traffic is usually not a problem. Just watch out for wet leaves on shaded curves.

How does the boxster handle the heaves? I was up there earlier this year in a big truck and it almost beat the crap out of me.

Steve - I have family that is here all the time so likely would only sit from Nov to March. Kind of like our fellow forum members in Chicago...hibernate for 6 months a year.

I haven't seen any heaves yet but I'm sure if I go looking I'll find them, winters are pretty tough on the roads.

There is a 2000 'S' for sale in Elizabethtown with 47k miles. Talked to the sales guy and he doesn't want to have it sitting out there all winter. He want's $19.5 for it...I'm like what? It is in nice shape though, no chips and seats are not worn at all. Was only driven for a few months each summer.
