Everything You Need to Pack for Machu Picchu

Travel and Leisure - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 17:48
<p>If you’re headed to the Sacred Valley, be sure to pack the right essentials.</p><p>Travelers with their sights on <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/how-to-travel-to-machu-picchu" target="_blank">Machu Picchu</a>, located high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, are in for plenty of challenging trails, gorgeous views, and fascinating historical sites.</p><p>The 15th-century fortress, considered the most famous icon of the Inca civilization, is about 7,970 feet above sea level. The high altitude makes it important to not only pack the right supplies, but to not pack any more than what you need to keep your pack light.</p><p>To start, always begin with the right trail bag. Something light, durable and supportive will help you get through the day without weighing you down or making you tired. If you need a suggestion for a specific bag, the video above has a great recommendation: the <a href="https://www.rei.com/product/893906/rei-co-op-flash-65-pack" target="_blank">REI Co-op Flash 65 Pack</a>.</p><p>Inside your bag, you’ll also want to efficiently pack only what you need on the trail while also planning for all kinds of weather and situations. Some tour operators may provide camping basics, but more personal supplies are up to you.</p><p>Remember to always have a good pair of <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/style/shoes/best-hiking-shoes-for-women" target="_blank">hiking shoes</a> with good traction and support. In your bag, keep a pair of sunglasses, a hat (for the sun) and <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Banana-Boat-Performance-Sunscreens-Technology/dp/B0030ZEGDY" target="_blank">sunscreen</a> to protect your skin from damage. For colder or unpredictable weather, also pack a thicker, knit hat and gloves, long underwear, flannel, a long sleeve thermal, a <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/style/fashion/best-travel-jackets" target="_blank">light down jacket</a>, a <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/style/travel-accessories/packable-rain-jackets" target="_blank">rain jacket</a> and a rain cover for your bag. You can get <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Sea-to-Summit-Stuff-Sack/dp/B002IAL05E" target="_blank">stuff sacks</a> to save space in your bag for all these items.</p><p>It’s great to pack layers, so also bring one or two T-shirts and your <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/style/fashion/best-travel-pants-women" target="_blank">hiking pants</a>. Bring a swimsuit and flip-flops, too, for bathing and potential swimming opportunities. And, don’t forget lots of socks (we like <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Darn-Tough/b/ref=w_bl_hsx_s_sp_web_2588109011?ie=UTF8&amp;node=2588109011&amp;field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=Darn+Tough" target="_blank">Darn Tough</a>). Hikers always have to take care of their feet.</p><p>Campsite essentials include a camping pillow and an ultra-warm <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Sports-Outdoors-Camping-Sleeping-Bags/zgbs/sporting-goods/2204498011" target="_blank">sleeping bag</a>, a dopp kit for toiletries and a <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Black-Diamond-Spot-Headlamp-Octane/dp/B06W9HPY25" target="_blank">headlamp</a> (because no one wants to get stranded outside in the dark).</p><p>Throughout the trip, remember to stay hydrated with a <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Hydration-Reservoir-Military-Replacement-Insulated/dp/B071DQSZB8" target="_blank">special pack</a>, which is easier than carrying a water bottle, too. Don’t forget your medications or passport as well.</p><p>Once you get to the site, you’ll have to store your large, hiking bag somewhere safe. But, in order to carry your daytime essentials, bring a small <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Venture-Pal-Ultralight-Lightweight-Packable/dp/B01BY6UDEQ" target="_blank">day bag</a>. Bring your <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/slideshows/best-digital-cameras-for-travel" target="_blank">camera</a> and <a href="http://www.travelandleisure.com/style/travel-accessories/best-portable-chargers">portable chargers</a> as well, because you’ll want lots of pictures.</p><p>If you’re worried about carrying all this stuff, don’t worry. Keep heavier items low in the bag and daily essentials packed in the front. As long as your bag is under 25 pounds, you’ll still be comfortable on the trip.</p>

Watch the Porsche 911 GT3 RS Clock 6:56.4 on the Nurburgring

Motortrend News Feed - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 17:00

Porsche debuted the 911 GT3 RS, its most powerful naturally aspirated car ever, at the Geneva auto show in March. And already, the track beast has set a lap time of 6:56.4 on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The GT3 RS is one of only three production sports cars from Porsche to lap the ‘Ring in under seven minutes. The 918 Spyder recorded a time of 6:57 back in 2013, and the 911 GT2 RS became the quickest production car to hit the Nürburgring by achieving a time of 6:47.03 last year.

Porsche works race driver Kévin Estre piloted the GT3 RS to its impressive new lap time. The car came in 24 seconds quicker around the ‘Ring than its predecessor.

Packing a 4.0-liter flat-six, the GT3 RS makes 520 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired exclusively to a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic, and according to Porsche, can hit 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. Top speed is 193 mph.

The GT3 RS borrows its aero and lightweighting technologies from the standard GT3 while also tacking on a magnesium roof and carbon-fiber front lid and fenders. From the GT2 RS, it takes the larger front spoiler for additional downforce and NACA ducts in the frunk lid that aid with brake cooling. During the recent run, the GT3 RS was equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires, which will be available for order at Porsche Centers and selected dealers and tire fitters. The sports car arrives in the U.S. this fall with a starting price of $188,550.

Watch the video below to see the 911 GT3 RS conquer the Nürburgring.

2018 Ford Expedition Platinum Drivers' Notes Review | Right to the top

Auto Blog News Feed - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 17:00

Filed under: ,,,

The 2018 Ford Expedition is the fourth generation of Ford's full-size SUV offering. It replaced a model that traced its roots to the early 2000s, though it received several heavy refreshes along the way. When it first debuted, the SUV was just kicking off. Full-sized models like the Expedition, Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon ruled the roost. It would be a few years before high gas prices shifted customers into smaller, more efficient crossovers. Ford let the Expedition saunter along while the Tahoe,
