In one of the Grand Tour episodes the guys drove 4X4 s thru Columbia and James May had a Fiat Panda while the other two had a Jeep and a modified  and lifted Chevy truck. The Panda did pretty well.

Two weeks and counting till your back stateside Creeker!  I know you'll be coming home with thousands of pics and many hours of video.......look forward to hearing your thoughts on what you'll do with it all.  I'm sure it'll be no easy task unless of course you're gonna vault it (hope not) for future generations(?)   :o

Until then standing by for a another report or two of Portugal, surf, and the peeps.

Wow! That little car is brave! That one picture w/it at the top of that rocky hilly road is awesome. Looks like a dry ski slope! Such an amazing time you're having.
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

I'm stoked I actually got another video finished!
The day after I get home, I head south.... so see you in May!

I finally got another vid finished!

There are a lot in the works... I hope to catch up in the next few weeks.
This place is so much fun to explore that my hard drive is filling up with pics and vids.

I realized I hadn't surfed in the Sagres area from Feb 20th till March 15th... it's been really big or windy, no one has been out at the ocean facing breaks till this week.... and now it's packed with surfers!

Anyway..... here's another look at surf and life in Portugal.
I had to drive 4 hours north to hide from the full ocean swells.... and it still showed some size.
Just the drive alone is fun  ;D

Love that surf tune. So you had a nice going away session with your new crew, thanks for the video.

Smooth travels home and hope to see you over here next winter.

That was fun Creeker! Loved seeing the country to and fro The Wall.  Waves beyond my pay grades of sure!

Say, what was on the serving tray?  Looked like oranges and ??? I think I'd be in for one powerful nap after the el humongo sangria!   ::)

Continued fun!!!!!!!
