Lovely beaches, lush gardens, steep ravines and jagged mountains all draw you
The Hawaiian island of Kauai has a well-earned reputation for rugged beauty and relative isolation from the mainstream tourist trade. Golf fans came to know it from 1994 through 2006, when the PGA Grand Slam of Golf was held each fall on the windswept fairways of Poipu Bay Golf Course, along the island's south shore.

The CTS-V doesn’t quite achieve the fit and finish of a BMW or Mercedes, but
The first CTS-V, introduced in 2004 with 400 hp, was a fun car. Most memorably, it was available only with manual transmission-not a notably smooth-shifting box, but a first for Cadillac since World War II and a signal that the company was serious about wooing performance-car buyers.

If you collect classic cars or just enjoy viewing them, mark your calendar for January 11 to 18. That's when Barrett-Jackson will host its 38th annual car collector show in Scottsdale, Ariz. Last year's event drew a remarkable attendance-280,000 people.

Hole No. 17
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.

Where were you last Super Bowl Sunday? I was wading across a tropical tidal flat in the Caribbean Sea, up to my knees in warm, sparkling clear saltwater.

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.

"What a different scene we found at the island! It is sparsely populated and
"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.

Built it and they will come, but only if they can find it.

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.

“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
