What Part of “Trusted Traveler” Does the TSA Not Understand?

The four letters you don’t want on your boarding pass – “SSSS”. I belong to the US/Canadian Nexus trusted/known traveler program.  That involved filling out a form, and then being personally interviewed by both US and Canadian ICE officials, at the end of which, and after paying a generous fee, I received a special Nexus card to allow me fast-track passage through the US/Canadian border crossings.  It needs to be renewed every five years; in my case my membership has been accepted and extended ...

What makes Chilean asado so amazing

An asado in Chile will , at first, feel familiar to anyone who grew up barbecuing in the US. The two have some things in common: meat, beer, and plenty of people.

Asado is, by definition, barbecue. The cooking techniques and ingredients, however, vary widely by region. Just like barbecue in California is d...

Snowshoeing rarely gets the attention it deserves. It’s not as flashy as snowboarding or snowmobiling, but it is easier and more affordable than most winter activities — without skimping on the fun. One big perk is that snowshoeing requires no instruction. It’s as simple as hiking in snow with the help of specially designed footwear, and poles for balance, so it’s only as challenging as the route you choose. Plus, snowshoe rentals are a fraction of the cost of ski gear, and you won’t need to ...
