    Polar bears are one of the most impressive and effective of the large predators.Their range is slowly being eroded by global warming, and some feel they are next for the endangered species list. Until recently though, any kind of encounter with these majestic creatures was restricted to zoos or wild animal parks. Now, eco-tourists can travel to the high arctic and live, in relative safety, within the bears' territory. read more

    Without booking the correct seat location for your flight you may find yourself stuck in a middle seat with a neighbor who has a weak bladder and a desire to spend the entire flight consuming large amounts of liquid. Needless to say you will not get much rest as your fellow passenger climbs over you every hour or so when he needs to relieve himself. read more

    Living in the Chicago area, public transportation can be a pain in my ... back!  With less people riding the buses, fares are increasing, service is poor, and the schedule is a mess.  It could be much better if more people rode public transit in place of driving their personal cars to work.  But how to accomplish this is an elusive target.  So I figured I would put out my ideas to inspire other to take note and help to change the system. read more

    My Own Means Of Transport: ...Till My Deathbed!
    Holding a driver's license for me has been one of those utmost senses of freedom availed to me. Having my own car has given me such liberty I can come and go as I please. It has on the other hand turned me into this "devil may care person". It is a way of letting my hair down. It is something I intend to hold onto till my deathbed!

    The Volkswagen Transporter offers high level cab comfort with many seating, heating, storage and entertainment features. An impressive standard safety package means you can rest assured the Transporter's occupants and load will be safe.  This is my 1st Transporter and I bought quite a high spec van. Medium roof wth 180ps Bi-turbo. Very disappointed with the high level of road noise in the cab and not as torquey as I’d of thought it should be! … hicle.html
