    Gladiator v Wrangler Unlimited

    Starting to think about replacing the Xterra. Not sure I have the patience or budget to wait for a new Bronco (although I have come close several times to putting down my deposit) , so leaves me pretty much at Jeeps.

    portapotty shelter recommendations?

    On the same vein as my questions for good wind-resistant tents, how about good wind-tolerant portapotty shelters? I have tried a couple and they have not survived wind storms, so we have relied on cheap, old dome tents. Works but less than comfortable. Suggestions?

    Other aspects of Cuba

    To go along with my post on the cars of Cuba, thought I would put up a few photos and a little info about the rest the country. First, I was very surprised at how open the people were to talk politics and to be critical of their government. Talking with a farmer he explained that they have to...

    The cars of Cuba

    My wife and I recently returned from a little over a week in Cuba. Trip as a whole was amazing, being one of my favorite travel destinations to date. And the classic cars of Cuba, especially in Havana, did not disappoint. In and around Havana, I would estimate that 25% or so of the vehicles...
