Caught this fellow driving while heading to one of the many beaches in Costa Rica. The roads were built for this type of transport (dirt and huge potholes everyhwere). I was amazed the wheels did not fall off.

I haven't seen that type of transportation for years. I wonder how many horsepower that would equate to. You are right Dave, simpler times. Bob

Nice capture.....We really don't realize how spoiled we are, do we? Simpler=Better? sometimes I think so, but I would miss my Microwave a lot!

Thanks Bob to be truthful this is first time I have seen it 'in the wild' so to speak.
