Bus, Plane and Motorbike to Paradise in Vietnam

The excitement started minutes after leaving the Ho Chi Minh International Airport. With my Vietnamese welcoming party-of-three, I walked to a parking lot expecting a car. But no car was in sight. Instead I saw a sea of scooters as far as my eyes could see. Gaggles of scooters – one of the quirky, endearing characteristics of Vietnam. Next I was told to wait at the curb. Moments later up zips my gracious host Win on a scooter, her mom and aunt doubled up on one behind her. They first strapped my 2 bags onto the two scooters, one of which I then mounted behind Win. No helmets – this is Southeast Asia after all – we headed out into the stifling hot exhaust fumes that flow into the arteries of Hoh Chi Minh.

Venturing Out

After a day to chill and get acquainted with District 3, the neighborhood my hotel was nestled in, I was glad to have made online reservations with a local tour company, Sinhcafe, to explore a bit of Vietnam. Sinhcafe rocks with its efficient, economical, and reliable company. It is the go-to tour company for Vietnamese travellers and international backpackers.

The journey to the coastal city of Nha Trang, 350 Km. north of Ho Chi Minh and 1000 Km. south of the capital Hanoi takes about 10 hours. This city is known by many Vietnamese as the best seaside resort in the country. I had other beach plans though; Nha Trang served as a perfect base for my journey to the remote Paradise Resort.

Along the way you can see vast fields of lush green trees and plants, refreshing to view until your eyes get tangled in the patches of land here and there plagued by the chemicals of warfare. At that moment, you realize you are looking at wasteland where no living organism can ever exist again – evidence of the devastation of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. But that’s another story.

The moment the bus reached the Nha Trang bus station, I grabbed my bag out of the compartment under the bus and stepped onto the chaotic street. I was immediately swarmed by drivers offering to motor bike-taxi me to a hotel of their choice. Fortunately I had reserved a room in advance; it simplified the task of dealing with the swarm.

When my driver turned onto the beach-front road Tran Phu, I recalled the website photo of the waterfront view from my pre-booked room and smiled. We had driven into the picture.

Get Me To The Beach

I awoke early to the sun’s warmth as it poured in through the floor – to – ceiling windows of my hotel room. Well rested and happy, I leaped out of bed and into the shower. Out on the street, I found no shortage of eateries for breakfast. I went to a favourite among travelers – Good Morning Vietnam – on Biet Thu Street.

Next I hit the street to find transportation to my final destination of Paradise Resort at Doc Let Beach. The trip would be 45 kilometers north of Nha Trang. While I felt relief knowing I had already booked a beach hut online, anxiety about how to get there set in. Public transit was not an option and I was on a tight budget.

That anxiety was short lived. The limited possibilities made choosing a breeze. A motor bike driver had convincingly promised to take me to my destination comfortably, safely, and less costly than a regular taxi could.

Paradise Resort at Doc Let Beach

This ultimate bargain starts at $US30 (single) or $US50 (double) a day with 3 meals and a clean, well constructed and designed beach hut. Vladimir, the proprietor, hails from Europe and does his best to maintain a laid-back, hassle free atmosphere. His ‘Paradise’ has 170 meters of beach front, and is located in rural Ninh Hoa, in Khanh Province.

If you seek peace and quiet with ample time and space to sit and look out at the wondrous aquamarine sea, read, write, meditate, get a massage, play solitaire, this will be your slice of Heaven for as long as you wish to indulge yourself.

Contact Vladimir via his website in advance and for a modest fee you can arrange for a lift to his paradise. Otherwise, when securing your transportation to Paradise Resort, unless you are driving yourself it is advisable to make sure your driver speaks English. At the time of writing, the locals did not commonly wear helmets when riding motor bikes, so it is also advisable that you insist your driver provides helmets if you go by motor bike. It will cost a few dollars more, but the peace of mind is worth it. The law requires riders to wear helmets; the local police simply do not enforce the law. But beware – police have been known to stop and charge unsuspecting foreigners without helmets on random days, and the penalty has been substantially high.

The route from Nha Trang to Doc Let Beach area (the setting of Paradise Resort) is an inspiring drive on windy, coastal roads with a few very steep grades. You’ll love riding on the back of a motor bike – the open air allows every fibre of your five senses to be stimulated. It’s a dynamic start to a memorable stay at Paradise.

Top 3 Ways to Increase Your Golfing Skills

Golfers are always looking for great ways to increase their skills. I put together a list of the top 3 ways to increase your golfing skills without having to pay a trainer to help you.

Elbow Needs To Be Touching Your Hip

One of the biggest mistakes I see most golfers make is not keeping their elbow touching their hip. It’s very easy to overlook this step because it feels natural for your elbows to stick out to the side but try to avoid doing that at all cost. Your elbow touching your hip keep your club nice and straight so that you have more control when you hit the ball.

Let Your Golf Club Do Its Job

Most golfers think that the harder you hit the ball, the further it will go. This is not necessarily true. It takes a precise swing, directly in the middle of the ball to make it go far. If you are swinging to hard and are not hitting the exact part of the club that you need to, the shot is going to slice or become a fresh air shot. Take your time and make sure you are hitting the right spot on the club and once you have mastered that, then move on to hitting the ball with more power.

Hip Rotation

Your entire body should be moving whenever you are taking a swing. If you only use your upper body strength, you will not get the full amount of power you could get if you were putting your hips into the swing. As your swing come down, your hips should follow that same motion. It’s almost like you are mimicking the motion the golf club. Your hips should swing at almost the same speed as the golf club. Watch the professionals on TV when the take a swing. It’s almost like they are using their whole body to make the hit.

Stay Fit

Swinging the golf club uses a lot of muscles that aren’t normally used that often. Having a strict workout regiment couples with practice helps increase your game. The more fit your core, back, legs and arms are, the better the chance of you hitting the ball correctly every time and with consistency. Your muscles have memory and the more you use them, the more memory they will retain.

Ditch the Vacation Debt

There are many times during the course of the year that we would like to take a spontaneous vacation/outing to get away from the stress at work and home, but without a plan this could lead to creating an exorbitant credit card debt. We live in a world where people want it now and do not think of the consequences of trying to pay later. It is difficult to pay off a credit card vacation bill in one month. Here are some things to do so as not to add unnecessary debts and help to ditch the vacation debt.

Make a Plan

Check your calendar: There are some months in the year that are the most popular for taking a vacation. At the beginning of the year, each family should sit down with a calendar and mark off each day that will be a non-work/school day for the entire year (January – December). These include holidays your company recognizes, vacation days you are entitled to and days the kids will be out of school.

Discuss the calendar: Sit down and talk about the calendar with your family, to see which dates everyone will be off on the same day. Most holidays are usually one or two days when the entire family might be off work and school and can spend time on a small vacation/outing. These days should also be planned.

Check your budget: At the beginning of the year, the family should look at their finances and determine if there is enough money to finance a vacation. Whether it is a trip to the beach, a weeklong vacation in the Caribbean or a one day trip to the city zoo, it is a good idea to put it on your calendar and put money aside in anticipation of each activity.

Discuss what to do: Each family member has a preference in leisure activities. It would be a good idea to discuss the activities each person would like to engage in. Discuss each activity and come to a consensus on what the family will do on each day marked on the calendar.

Save for your vacation: In January, if the family plans on going to the zoo for the day in September, find out how much it will cost each person for entrance tickets, food and any other activities at the zoo. Start saving towards your outing. January to August is eight months and say you put away $30.00 per month towards your trip; this will be $240.00. Therefore, there will be enough for the outing and no credit card debt. This same idea can be used for a vacation to the Caribbean, you might need to plan a few years in advance and put aside more monthly.

Implement your plan

Pay for your vacation: Pay for tickets in advance to avoid high costs. Usually, buying vacations (tickets) close to the date of departure will cost more.

Documents: Make sure all documents for travel are in your possession. These include passports and visas if your travels include going to another country.

Enjoy your plan

Sit back and put your feet up: Go on your vacation/outing and enjoy the fruits of your labor. At all costs try not to let your whim cause you to spend money on activities not planned.

Go back to work with a smile: Start saving for your next vacation without the debt of the last vacation.

Anchoring Techniques at Sea

If you want to learn to sail like a pro, you will need to be able to use your sailboat anchor smooth and easy. Matter of fact, cruising sailboat folks report that they spend over 80% of their time at anchor.

That’s because they sail to the destination and then spend time ashore to shop, sight-see, travel, and mingle among the local folks. Follow these five sailing tips to make sure you can set your anchor deep into the seabed under engine power–wherever in the world you choose to cruise!

Think slow, smooth, and easy. Put those three actions into play anytime you want to lower and set your sailing anchor. Realize that this will be one of the few times you have to do something “blind”. As soon as you lower your anchor below the water surface, you will no longer have it in sight.

So, you will need to slow the pace of this sailing skill to make sure that the anchor and anchor rode (rope or chain) make it to the bottom without knots, twists, or snarls. And that once your anchor rests upon the bottom it will align itself to dig deep beneath the seabed and set safe and secure. Follow these five steps to anchor your small sailboat under engine power. And remember–slow, smooth, and easy!

1. Point Into the Elements and Drift

Align your bow so that you are pointed into the stronger of the two elements–wind or current. Stop all momentum (forward motion). Lower your anchor until it hangs straight up and down (called “short stay”), but has not yet touched the bottom. Allow the boat to drift aft with the elements or place your engine in astern propulsion at the slowest speed possible. Lower the anchor just enough so that it makes contact with the seabed. You will know this happens when the anchor rode (line or chain) becomes slack. Go to the next step.

2. Lower Anchor Rode Equal to Two-Times Water Depth.

Continue to drift or motor aster at the slowest speed possible. Veer (let out) about two times the water depth in anchor rode. Your anchor flukes should dig into the seabed and “take a bite”.

3. Snub the Rode to Get Your Anchor to “Take a Bite”.

Tug on a rope anchor rode a few times to get the anchor to set and hold. Set the anchor windlass brake to get the anchor to set and hold if you use all-chain anchor rode. Go to the next step.

4. Veer the Remainder of Your Anchor Scope.

Veer the rest of your calculated anchor scope. Use a scope of 7 feet of rope rode for each foot of water depth (7:1 scope) with rope or rope and chain anchor rode. Use at least 5 feet of chain rode for each foot of water depth (5:1 scope) with all-chain anchor rode.

There will be circumstances where this amount of scope will not be possible (i.e. crowded boat anchorages). Use the most scope possible to avoid the possibility of dragging anchor (the anchor pulls out of the sea bed). Cleat off your anchor rode or set the windlass brake (all-chain rode). Go to the next step.

5. Check That Your Anchor Holds.

Place the back of a hand or bottom of your foot on top of the anchor rode. Vibration means you are dragging. Veer (let out) more scope and test again. Continue this sequence until you no longer feel vibration. If necessary, weigh anchor (pull it out and bring it aboard) and move to a better spot or a different anchorage.

When you are satisfied that your anchor has set deep into the seabed, check your position with drag bearings. Drag bearings are used as a fast way to tell you if you start to drag anchor.

Choose an object off the port of starboard beam. This could be a pier, corner of a house or roof, building, tower, or a prominent tree, hill, or mountain peak. Take a bearing to the object with a hand-bearing compass. Record the bearing and object description in your boat log. Share this information with your sailing crew or partner so that all hands aboard are involved in sailing safety.

Check the bearing three to four times the first hour at anchor, and then at least once an hour afterwards. If the bearing changes by more than a degree or two, you are dragging. Veer scope or move to a more secure spot.

If the wind or current shift, so will your boat heading. When that happens, choose a different object off the port or starboard beam. Make a new entry in the boat log and pass the information along to your crew.

Learn to sail with confidence when you know the sailing skills you need for safe anchoring under power. Practice these sailing tips for peace-of-mind when you lower your sailboat anchor–wherever in the world you choose to cruise!

Five Tips For What to Wear at Golf Courses

It is difficult to find a better way to spend an afternoon than to play a round of golf. Not only do you get to spend time outside, but you get to enjoy the rich sense of history and tradition that the game offers. Some of that tradition also extends to the wardrobe, and if you are new to hitting the links, it is not always easy to know what the ideal golf attire. These four tips can help take some of the guesswork of choosing an outfit, so you always feel comfortable and look on point when you’re visiting your favorite golf courses.

Check the Rules

Before you pick up your clubs, check with the facility that you’re playing at to see what their wardrobe rules are. Some courses may have very specific guidelines, such as no jeans allowed or the proper length for shorts. Familiarizing yourself with these recommendations can make it much easier to plan an outfit and ensure that you don’t wind up feeling out of place.

Get Collared

When you’re choosing a shirt, it’s always a good idea to opt for a collared style for hitting the links. Some facilities don’t require them, but they’re usually the preferred look on the links. You can go with a button-down collared option or a polo style, depending on your preference. In warm weather, choose a short-sleeved, collared shirt. In cool weather, opt for a long-sleeve style. Some courses allow women to wear sleeveless shirts in warm weather, so check the guidelines before you head out.

Stay Classic

Golf courses tend to have a more traditional dress code, so it’s best to wear classic clothing items on the green. Instead of your favorite pair of jeans, opt for khaki pants or shorts. When you’re wearing shorts, pay careful attention to their length. Extremely short shorts aren’t appropriate for the links, but very long styles can look sloppy and out of place too. Choose Bermuda style shorts that hit just above the knees. Women can also opt for golf skirts instead of shorts in warm weather.

Keep Your Cool

To ensure peak performance when you hit the links in warm weather, it’s important to choose clothes that help you keep cool. Choose shirts, pants, shorts, and other items that are made of lightweight, breathable materials like cotton. You can even find some pieces that are made from a knit mesh wicking material that helps pull moisture away from the body, so if you sweat out on the back nine, you’ll still stay cool and dry.

Stay Trim

If you play in cool or inclement weather, you’ll probably need a jacket or some type of rain wear to keep you warm and dry. When you’re choosing outerwear for golf courses, though, opt for pieces with trim, close fit. If you wear pieces that are bulky or oversized, they can affect your mobility and alter your swing — and who wants to add strokes to their game just to stay warm or dry?

EA – Electric Aircraft and Future Materials

Currently most of the electric aircraft prototypes aren’t worth their salt. It’s not that they don’t work, sure they do; they can take-off and land and fly around. And they are much quieter, which is a very good thing when you’re riding inside of a small light aircraft, not to mention noise abatement issues in nearby encroaching communities. The problem with electric aircraft right now is the range, it’s not a new problem, but it is a pervasive one. The aircraft just runs out of juice, and the batteries are fully discharged before you had a reasonable time in the air.

Of course, in the future advanced battery technology will take care of this problem, as the batteries will have more power and less weight. Obviously, in a light aircraft weight is paramount, and the lighter the load, the better the range, and the less energy you need to propel the aircraft to altitude. What do I think are the prospects for electric light aircraft? Well, let’s talk about that if we might.

This technology will get there thanks to advances in material science especially when it comes to advanced materials used in making batteries. We can only make the aircraft so light with carbon composites, but the batteries also have to be lightweight. Aviation fuel weighs about 7 pounds per gallon, and for the same amount of energy output, batteries are much heavier.

Perhaps we need to take the battery technology back to the drawing board. In fact I have an idea. Think of a foam-like solution which spreads out like a fractal model which fills all the empty cavities in the wing and fuselage. Then imagine the wings of carbon nanotube – graphene composite which collect friction from the trade of electrons as the relative wind travels over the skin, helping to maintain some of the charge –not enough to power the aircraft – just prolong the voltage – trickle charging constantly — I think we need to rethink this, and if anyone wants to take this to a higher level rather than talking about how great it will be once new material science figures out the battery weight problem.

Right now, there are many electric aircraft prototypes being flown around, and some of them are doing quite well, but none of them have the range to compete with aviation fuel in reciprocating engines much less jet turbines, or turboprops. There will come a day perhaps within this decade where the battery technology can catch up, but we are going to have to rethink how we do things, it will have to go back to the drawing board, and we will have to get serious about reengineering our electric aircraft future to bring on the NEXT GEN for general aviation. Please consider all this and think on it.

Cold Weather Sailing Tips

The saying goes – “there is no such thing as weather, just the wrong clothes.”

As I write, the UK has just had its coldest March since blah blah blah, so in an effort to invigorate spring and induce a heatwave, here is some cold weather sailing advice.

So try these when the need arises:

  1. Take more clothes to the club than you think you might need. Carrying them should warm you up for a start! If your sailing wardrobe is inadequate, raid the cupboards for an old fleece or two. And it may be time to get the credit card out
  2. Basic principle: Never under-estimate the cold – it’s far easier to strip a layer off if too hot than heat yourself up if you get chilled
  3. If your boat lives ashore rather than on a mooring, dress warmly in civvies whilst you rig up, including extra layers, hat, gloves, etc. No harm in sneaking thermals under the jeans or putting a (dry) sailing waterproof on together with your coat
  4. But if it is also chucking it down with rain, get the sailing gear on first
  5. Rig with a sense of purpose, this is no time for faffing about. If someone fancies a chat, save it for the changing room. Move the boat out of the wind if practicable. Check the toe-stap strings and the like – this is hardly the day for gear-failure to induce a swim
  6. Eat well before going afloat – this is not a time for low blood-sugar levels. And use the toilets too. Stripping-off to answer nature’s call whilst out in the elements is not going to help keep you warm
  7. I have a theory that your head is a good source of wind-information. But if it aches with cold, forget that. Put on at least a beanie hat and better yet a balaclava – or both!
  8. Don’t over-heat in the changing room, get sweaty then immediate freeze as you walk outdoors. Save putting on the last couple of layers until you have left the changing room, perhaps even until you go outside
  9. Don’t wade into the water to launch if you can avoid it. If you really have to go deep water paddling regularly, get yourself a drysuit. Making the crew do it to save yourself is unacceptable
  10. Take an extra layer or two afloat – but store them somewhere dry – in an accessible tank or a dry-bag
  11. Don’t wear leather sailing gloves – they keep your hands wet, which sucks the heat out of you. There are several alternative materials
  12. To some gentle exercise to get the blood flowing
  13. Don’t launch too early
  14. But once afloat, get busy. Don’t sit there feeling miserable
  15. If you must hang about (due to general recalls for example) heave too and get out of the wind as much as you can. Also, if possible, sail to somewhere sheltered but not too far away from the start
  16. If you fingers get cold, suck them – you will be amazed
  17. Do some more gentle warming up afloat around the time of the 5-minute gun
  18. Do not be psyched out by the weather – embrace it and laugh; doing so will give you a real edge on the miserablists
  19. Light airs and cold are the biggest challenge all that sitting still
  20. If you come ashore feeling really cold, get warmed up, showered and changed before packing the boat up (but do take the sails down first)

There is only one book written specifically for Club Sailors, even though they are the mainstay of racing everywhere.

Golf in Tuscany

If you have never been to Tuscany, you are missing a real treat. The rolling hills and medieval towns are a joy. The villages are picturesque to the nth degree and some of the old hill towns are to die for. But have you ever thought of all this and golf too? If not, you surely should. There are some beautiful courses set in gorgeous surroundings and you will be made very welcome indeed. It’s easy to fix up accommodation near golf courses these days using one of the many online golf portals and you will often be able to book tee times. It’s worth asking your hotel or guest house if they can get you a discount as this is pretty standard across Europe.

Some of the better known courses include Ugolino – a natural course named among the 50 most beautiful golf courses in the world by the American writer Chris Santella. Pavoniere with its immense greens, undulating fairways and clusters of pines and cypresses. Montecatini – set in the Tuscan hills and offering many natural hazards such as lakes, streams, forests and ditches. Pelagone – one of the most beautiful courses in Italy set amidst vineyards and olive groves. Poggio dei Medici – a championship course built to USGA standards. Versilia – situated only a mile from the sea, this course is dominated by water hazards which feature on eleven of the holes. Thick woods and forest surround the course and the greens are well protected and fast running. Bagnaia – this a Robert Trent Jones Jr designed course situated in the gently rolling hills above Siena.

Florence is the jewel in the crown of Tuscany and Poggio dei Medici Golf Club is easily reached from the city. Florence can be really crowded during the summer months but early spring and late autumn are great times to play golf in this part of the world and also the best times to visit Florence without the queues. My personal highlight in Florence is the Piazzale Michelangelo from where you get a beautiful view over the city which is difficult to appreciate from the narrow streets. Up here you will also find reproductions of some of the famous statues such as the David. Florence offers lots of excellent restaurants and you might like to try the local speciality which is Bistecca ai ferri – charcoal grilled beef which washes down beautiful with a glass of Chianti.

How to Evaluate an Airplane Trade-Up Decision

Sometimes it pays to make a change even if you’re pretty comfortable with what you have. I purchased my first new car after graduating from college and while times were tough in the early eighties, I was able to afford a very basic form of transportation on my meager starting salary. Just $6200 was the price of my manual transmission, manual roll down windows that doubled as my air conditioning and an AM radio. It was all I really needed for transportation and I was thrilled to own a brand new car. Just one year later, I was able to upgrade to the same model car (one model year newer) and “loaded” with automatic transmission, electric windows, air conditioning, extended 5 year warranty and even an AM/FM radio! For the price of just $7100, how could I not move up? I eliminated thousands of odometer miles with a newer model year and enjoyed a rich options package for just $900 more than I paid the previous year. I didn’t really need to change cars, but it sure made sense!

Of course, sometimes we just want something new but it just doesn’t make sense and it’s not justifiable. So to keep things objective, download the Move up Check-list from the Suburban Aircraft Sales resource pato help you evaluate your current situation and decide if you could benefit from a change. When considering new airplanes, you can spot some awesome deals if you know what to ask and when to look. Here are a couple of tips:

  1. Ask your Aircraft Sales Specialist about unsold models from the previous model year. Often these planes will be discounted to move new inventory
  2. Manufacturer Demo models also offer some valuable discounts and incentives. While you won’t spec the airplane to your exact specifications, you’ll find that these planes are well equipped and still leave room for your own customizations like N number, and avionics.
  3. Look for specials around the big shows like Sun ‘n Fun and Airventure. This is when new products and features are introduced with show specials. Also, the manufactures love to move airplanes at the show and may offer “hidden” deals. This justifies their presence at the show and provides great press. Come ready to sign a deal and reap the rewards.
  4. Uncle Sam offers opportunities as well. Keep an eye out for new tax incentives and remember to give yourself enough time to meet the required deadlines.

A professional Aircraft Sales Specialist isn’t out to make a sale, but rather wants to help you make a great decision and keep you as a customer and friend for life. Nurture a relationship with an experienced specialist who may not recommend a move today, but will keep you on his/her radar and pick up the phone when he or she becomes aware of an option than makes sense for your mission and lifestyle.
