The ‘floating’ backpack that could ease the burden of travel

Traveling can be a pain when it come to luggage or baggage. It is even more of a problem when hiking, climbing or running.  I read an article about a Floating Backpack and I just was amazed that someone took the time to invent this item.  It's constructions seems simple and I wonder why someone hadn't thought of it before.  It uses bungee cords and pulleys to cushion downward jerks felt when heavy backpacks bounce. The result is a bag that appears to levitate while its carried.

This may be the next best thing when it comes to using a backpack.  Check out this article and see all the info needed to understand how it can help make a heavy load seem lighter with less stress on your back.
This creation can cut the risk of spinal injury by drastically reducing the downward force created when moving with a pack. With every step you make a load can feel nearly a third heavier, straining muscles and joints with every jolt. I feel this new suspended load technology is going to make a big difference in the lives of campers, runners and hikers.

Travel to Cuba-Yes or No

When relations with Cuba started to improve I was so interested in traveling there.  I though that maybe someday that would be a option.  Since then the advisory to travel there have been at many levels.  If you are confused about restrictions and the levels you should read this article about how conditions have change recently.

Travel interest have increased over the last few months and I'm hoping that we can feel safe enough to travel to Cuba soon. Check with your travel agent for all updated warning systems and the new restrictions about travel to Cuba.  I would love to hear from anyone who has been to Cuba or who is wanting to go.  I think it would be a trip of a life time.  Safe travels.
