Road Cycling in Maui

OK, first and foremost, this isn’t going to be an in-depth, expert, evaluation of road cycling on Maui … it’s just my impressions and opinions.  If you want something more, I suggest you take a look at Tom Meloy’s very nice writeup from a few years ago. On a recent vacation to Maui, I decided …

Renting Glass

As many of you probably know … I’m a shutterbug … I put myself in the ‘serious amateur’ category. My camera of choice is a Canon 7D … and I have two lenses currently.  A Canon 70-300 zoom and the lens that came with the camera and a Canon 28-135 “kit” lens.  Both have in …

Mauipocolypse 2.0

Ha! I’ll bet you thought the Mauipocolypse odyssey was over? Not by a long shot! I’m sure you all heard about the tsunami that hit Hawaii. Well, this threw the entire air traffic transportation system for a loop … at least in relation to travel to & from the islands.

Mauipocolypse

Off we go on another adventure. Well, ‘adventure’ is a strong word … as we’re going back to Maui … an island we’ve been to a number of times. None the less … a much needed, and well deserved, vacation. Unfortunately, the trip didn’t start out that well … a series of very bad airline …

Honu

Today was our first full day on Maui … I woke up really early … around 2am Hawaiian time (due to the time change). Dinked around with the computer a bit (of course I brought it along). Around 4am I made coffee for Ginny and I and we watched the day break. Ginny and I …

Maui Bound

Well, here we are again on a plane going to Maui. It’s Ginny’s birthday in about a week and we’re going to celebrate. I’m not going to say how old she’s going to be, but I’ll give you a hint it starts with 5 and ends with 0. You do the math. Our flight was …
