The Iguana Man is at Costco, having new tires put on the XT. Also locking lug nuts, as we don’t want to find ourselves in the position of returning to a vehicle on blocks.
We have also installed these nifty little rain guards on the windows, as central Costa Rica is mountainous and cool (and wet)….so there’s no need for a.c., but you get wet with open windows. We discovered these ingenious devices on our first trip there, and put them on last fall. They work rather nicely in the South Florida monsoons. Highly recommend.
We’re taking two GPS’s, a big one and a little one. We’ve taken the little one to CR before, it is an electronic delight in a package the size of a cell phone, and even displays altitude, which is far more useful in CR than here, where everything other than interstate flyovers is 5′ above sea level.
We’ve installed a digital compass, and are discussing a video system for the XT. Haven’t quite landed that one yet. I’m not too worried about getting lost, rather, I’m sort of looking forward to it. My experience has been that sometimes you find the best stuff when you have no idea where you are.
