I guess it all comes down to a bit of that "I can't get that here and I WANT IT!" It's funny, you can get their Ginger Beer which makes a great Dark & Stormy but not the rum. Maybe you should try that until you run out!

Cruzan Rum is my usual now.

Goslings is the correct rum for a Dark and Stormy

A couple of people tried, but it didn't seem to be working.

As light as I'm willing to go and it requires daily fuel and water supplies. It does include all camping equipemnt and food supplies as well as spares and tools to be self sufficient. This was on a two week dirt rally

Thumb F4i camping setup

Here are a few pics of my setup for a camping trip to the keys with my girl on a 2006 f4i. I added a Ventura luggage rack which works great. On it is a marsee zipp 50L bag, cortech saddle bags, a tank bag and a ram-mount aquabox for the cellphone/gps/ipod/entertainment system lol.we were riding two up so it was alittle tight but we did the seven hours with no problems weathering the cold (it was winter around 50F) so we also had all our winter gear which was much thicker and took up more space then a summer camping trip. All in all the F4i with all that was packed on it did very well, and we had a great time.http://d26ya5yqg8yyvs.cloudfront.net/cooltu.gif

Why an inverter? On a weekend trip?! Laptop I'd guess?

Another reason why I don't have a Facebook account...
