Well it’s Labor Day long weekend in the Dominican Republic. A happy Dominican Labor Day goes out to everyone who’s watching. I headed out to Loma Alta and thought I’d check out what’s happening in the developments. On my way out I ran into dozens of folks on horseback. These were fine horses well trained [...]

Well it’s that time again. Every six to eight weeks I like to put out a video covering some of the progress in the Montana Y Mar development. When gathering the final segments for this video it dawned on me just how fast things are progressing in such a short time. I can’t express how [...]

It’s been just shy of seven years since my first discovery tour took place. During that time span between the meet and greets, the discovery tours, the thousands we’ve met along the way, good folks hailing from every part of the globe one thing still remains intact. One commonality still remains unchallenged. For as long [...]

Many subscribers may recall an interview I did about a year ago with a great couple from Canada Rob and Michelle. About a year prior I met them on one of our excursion tours. Even though they’ve been to the country nine previous times never ventured into our neck of the woods. While very impressed [...]

On 6 August 1991, almost twenty eight years ago, the World Wide Web became publicly available. This gave birth to a whole new technology which would fundamentally change the world as we know it. There’s a multitude of ways August 6, 1991 changed the world but one thing I’m sure we’ll all agree on is since [...]

One question I’m often asked is what entailed in the DYD tour. Where will we be going, what will we see? You know the general questions you’d think might have an easy answer. Turns out these questions don’t have simple answers. Over the past six plus years I’ve done close to 700 discovery tours, met [...]

I’m often asked “with all the countries you’ve been in and after living in six different countries what made you settle on the DR?”A good question that’s always trailed by another “out of the whole DR what is it that made you pick the town of Cabrera?” Perhaps even a better question and I’ll attempt [...]

Wednesday February 14th 2018 the US suffered its most recent incident involving yet another school shooting. What seems to be taking on the appearance of an ongoing weekly TV series recently featured its 18th episode of the year.  Just so were all on the same page here I’m saying that this totals eighteen separate school [...]

Nancy and Jerry are carrying out a project that many would find hard to even consider. They’re building a 2,200 square foot pool cliff home while still living abroad. Here’s a brief history on how we first met. It’s really kind of cool how it occurred. We met Nancy and Jerry several years prior. Their [...]

Many of you who take the time to read my posts already know I’ve said countless times that the most dangerous weapon any nation has is an ignorant citizenry. At this point anyone residing in the West and still has the slightest inkling that they’re living in a free democratic society is simply choosing to [...]

After a three and a half week run of visitors it’s nice to be back in the saddle once again. One of the many things I like about what I do is when I’m tired I get to hang up the “Gone Fishing” sign and I get to do this almost whenever I choose to. [...]

I recently received a request from one of our subscribers. They thought it would be a good idea if I filmed some of the construction currently underway around the town of Cabrera. I took a couple of hours and just drove around the various neighborhoods. I simply snapped a few pictures of the homes currently [...]

With eight exotic beaches to choose from, it’s easy to see why so many get hooked only to find themselves visiting their favorite on a regular basis, but what about the other side of the road.   The landward side, the side I like to call the alternate view. So many forget about the fresh water [...]

It’s late August 2017. I’m composing this post while the thermometer is reaching the mid 90’s.  Yes it’s hot and the air is thick. At times you’d swear you could cut it with a knife. For all who dislike humidity August and September are the two most uncomfortable months in Cabrera. This especially holds true [...]

Between our NW video tour followed by a ten day family reunion in Canada it's nice to be back to the normal smooth pace of Cabrera. Liane and I took advantage of the off time, the summer time in Cabrera and headed up north to Timmins Ontario. Thought we’d enjoy the cooler temps while spending [...]

I want to cover a subject that I should have covered a long time ago. I want to talk about the amount of ridicules accidents I see when I’m out on my excursion trips. Many of these accidents are located on open straight highways with exceptional pavement. The main highways in the DR are actually [...]
