re: Punta Cana, DR, anyone been? - Ben Dare
skip PC. Fly into La Romana (on S/SE coast) and stay at Bayahibe. Reasonable all inclusive's (Iberostar and others), warmer, clearer water this time of year than PC. More EU than USA but less crowds overall. Unless you know the area or are with someone who does, stick to the hotel compounds and beac...

Marine is a professional who stands ready to fight anytime, anywhere, any enemy that the President and Congress may designate and to do so coolly, capably, and in the spirit of professional detachment. He is not trained to hate, nor is he whipped up emotionally for battle or for any other ...

re: Rafting the Colorado River - Ben Dare
The permits were 15-20 dollars with a $200 deposit. Not sure what the weighted lottery cost is but suspect its not much more. Actual total trip costs were in the $5-10K range depending upon menu and upgrades to gear, including travel to AZ. Our party was usually around 8-12 people so not too bad....

re: Rafting the Colorado River - Ben Dare
I've done Lee's Ferry to Diamond Creek several times on a self-guided trip. We averaged 16 days depending upon flow rate. Its truly a one of a kind experience from the Glen Canyon Dam ~215 miles though the heart of the Grand Canyon. Unparalleled beauty with some Class V waters thrown in. Before...
