I took the moment and considered that he could not have picked a better spot to hang out in his final months. Our first meeting with Vic was in Sept of 2000 when we made our way up to the lake af...

Take along a 4m kite for those 50+ knot days in Praia (NE brasil). The beer is super cold and cheap, well worth going to. Just to note the ENTIRE coast of NE brasil is kiteable. That's a few thousand miles of sandy totally deserted beaches.
Good luck

Pull out the seats, throw in a futon, add a roof coffin and you have a very nice ride. The astro van has been cheap to maintain, air filter is $4.99, compair that to an import. The mi...
