A portable air conditioner can provide relief from the heat when no other form of air conditioning is present. Portables can also provide a boost to your home's existing air conditioning by cooling rooms that are chronically too hot, and by selectively cooling individual rooms to save energy through reduced use of the main system. Portable air conditioners are also ideal in apartments, condos, and neighborhoods where property owners or homeowners' associations prohibit the use of window air conditioners. But choosing a portable air conditioner is harder than selecting a window unit. Because portables do not cool in exactly the same way as window air conditioners, they need to be properly matched to the space that needs to be cooled. This booklet explains how to evaluate the features of a portable air conditioner, choose the best-designed unit for your situation, determine the correct BTU (cooling) capacity, install your unit for maximum effectiveness and the lowest energy use, and perform simple maintenance tasks that can prolong the life of your portable air conditioner. In addition, this booklet details situations in which portable air conditioners may actually work better than window units, and also points out those places where a portable air conditioner may not be suitable. Not all salespeople who work at appliance stores are familiar enough with portable air conditioners to adequately explain the advantages and disadvantages of different makes and models, and neither do manufacturers always provide enough information to help you make a choice. This booklet can provide the information you need to make an informed purchase, allowing you to select a portable air conditioner that will keep you cool while using as little energy as possible.

This book is about my month long, 10,000 mile, solo motorbike trip from Buxted in East Sussex to the Sahara Desert and back. Along the way I meet interesting people, a thief, a number of policemen, a very sweet donkey, a large mountain range, a suicidal black bee and a scorpion that fell from my ceiling.

I rode through France, over the Pyrenees and through Spain, over the Gibraltar Strait and into Morocco, west to the coast, south to Rabat and Casablanca, inland to Marrakesh, over the High Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate, then to Zagora, Erfoud, Errachidia, Merzouga and Mhamid. Oh, and back again.

I experienced the phenomenal 50 degree heat of the Sahara Desert in the summer whilst wearing thick, black motorbike leathers, I saw sights that will remain in my heart forever, I ate a dinner that left me with a bottom like a red hot bullet hole and I rode through rain like you've never seen before.

So, why not join me for my adventure of a life time and enjoy my humour, my propensity for disaster and my lust for laughter.

From the back:

"After getting on my bike I became so excited that I just couldn't sit still, I was twitching like an idiot, talking non-stop and rocking in my seat. When I left it was all I could do to stop myself from screaming and punching the air. I somehow managed to control myself but about 50 yards later I looked in my mirror and saw my wife standing there, on her own watching me leave. Every little bit of excitement instantly turned to guilt and loneliness, the feeling was so strong that I almost blubbered in my helmet. However, I wasn't just leaving my wife, son and dog, I was also leaving my home, job and most importantly, familiarity. Everything from this point forward was going to be very different in a 'make it up as you go' kind of way. Well, that was the first 200 yards of my trip, only another 10,000 miles to go. This was going to be one hell of a ride!"
