The ‘golf cart’ sped past us in a white blur as we stood by the side of the road. We heard it coming like a mariachi stadium concert on wheels. Final verification of the Doppler effect it faded soon after it had appeared. The pulmonia is one of... Read more

Beneath a cloudless blue sky and blazing golden sun, the relentless surf of the Pacific Ocean thundered against the five kilometres of beach in front of our condo. With a little research and a lot of luck, we had landed in a prime location, ready... Read more

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD

Cindy and Perry Mack

The anvil towered 10 m (32 ft) above the trailer with a bright orange 35,500 splashed across the base. Chevy was trying to impress us with the towing capability of the 2020 Silverado 3500 HD dually. We weren’t yet. When it comes to towing ‘could’... Read more

The trail and overland season has begun in earnest, and with it my annual review of gear I want to upgrade to suit my new goals. And one of those goals is to go farther and longer off-road. We need more water, more fuel, and the topic of this... Read more

Admittedly, I always get excited when a new all-terrain or mud terrain tire is announced. Changes in technology almost always generate a better tire. A tire that will let us explore more, a tire that will let us get more work done faster and for... Read more

Porsche Cayenne S

When I first got the email, I thought my spam filters were failing. It was from Porsche. Would I like to drive a Porsche Cayenne S off-road outside of Whistler, British Columbia? What? Which part of 4WDrive says AWD Porsche? Naturally, I said yes... Read more

OK, ‘maintenance’ is not my middle name. We finally moved to a condo since the word ‘lawn’ grew to mean ‘allow to return to nature’. But when ‘maintenance’ means ‘make better and save money’, my interest comes around. Read more

I nostalgically remember Styrofoam coolers and bags of ice on camping trips with the family. I say nostalgically because I remember those early camping trips fondly, but I have no desire to re-live them. Those trips really had to be in an RV Park... Read more

Sometime ago we reviewed the Weego 44. The feature list was plentiful but I lamented at the time that I felt its abilities were exaggerated. It is small and portable but more suited to small cars, ATV’s and motorcycles not the 7L gas and 3.5L... Read more
