Gozzer Ranch's setting is impressive enough-looking out onto the 60-square-mile Lake Coeur d'Alene in northern Idaho. More stunning is how the property's developers, Discovery Land Co., have kept the whole place rustic and in low profile. The 700-acre land plan includes a Tom Fazio-designed golf course that snuggles easily into the native contours.

Beyond 3000 rpm, the GT roars like a bear that took a large-caliber bullet to
The best thing that could have happened to Rolls-Royce and Bentley did happen about a decade ago, when Vickers offloaded these once-revered but faded brands to BMW and VW, respectively. Now a Roller is a Roller again, a shamelessly magnificent execution of automotive opulence and serenity.

"All of Croatia is beautiful," Slobodan Vrdoljak corrected me jovially. He is the man to contact for people flying by private jet to Zadar, on the country's Dalmatian coast. (See "Zadar Airport," on page 38.) Having only recently arrived here, we were lounging with him in the airport coffee shop.

A little after 10 p.m. one night last March, I was hosing down my waders outside the drying room at Terra del Fuego's elegant Maria Behety Lodge when Brian Yamamoto came rolling in. Yamamoto, a dentist from Fairbanks, carried his 15-foot Snowbee spey rod and sported a smile as wide as the Argentine pampas.

The Range Rover can tackle a broad menu of tasks, from swift highway hauling
To a car driver deprived of his view of the road ahead, an SUV hogging the left lane is hardly a welcome sight. The longer it sits there, the more deeply the car driver ponders its often wasteful bulk, its appetite for gasoline and how brilliant it would be to confine these bloated conveyances to their own clogged stream over there on the far right.

While booking a stay in a luxury Hawaiian hotel isn't hard, finding one that will fly you there on a private jet might be. The Royal Lahaina Resort on Maui and the Royal Kona Resort on the Big Island offer to do just that, via a new service called POSH Private Jet Holidays.

“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
