Re: Caravanistan improvements: suggestions?

Hi Steven,
the recently-updated pages link (https://caravanistan.com/recently-updated/) disappeared a while ago... Can I get my (almost) daily fix of what's new on your site in any way? ;-)

Other than that, this plan *should* work since once you are past passport control, you are in transit and have effectively left the country.
