    Ok...I'll just put my request in now! Hubby & I are flying to Maui the first part of February, so please see what you can do to get the Vog, or whatever cleared up & out of there!

    Thanks for your help on this! Our last trip to Maui was no fun at all (dental hell), so we'ree looking forward to actually 'seeing' the island this time!

    OK Guys, you heard Jeanette. Start sacrificing those virgins so that the volcano gods will be happy and stop the Vogging.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    A "Breeder" produces enriched Uranium and U235 ... or in other words, atomic bombs.
    As far as I know ... there is only one in the US ... Renton ( ??) Washington (??).

    Not to worry, vog is actually a pretty rare occurence (except on the Big Island). Because of the location of Kilauea Volcano, the vog generally blows out to sea.

    If you are interested, here is an article from my website that I wrote about Haleakala that you might find useful. I'm sure Christian can provide many more tips than I can.

    While I find Maui enjoyable, IMO, the best island to visit is either the Big Island (for the volcanoes) or Kauai (for the laid back lifestyle). Maui just has too many tourists. Sorry, Christian.

    Nothing to be sorry for. Maui is still "No Ka Oi" the best. Maybe not visually. Kauai is visually stunning, it is truly amazing. It is what I thought Hawaii would look like before I came here. The big Island, so big. You can actually drive for more than an hour and not reach the shore. The volcanos park is a journey into another world.
    Maui takes more time to discover and you find it on the little things off the beaten path. The road to Hana and the Hana coast are like nothing I've seen before so is the Halaeakala crater.

    Oahu is kind of like that, once you get past the crowds, traffic and tourist hot spots. Yesterday, I was shooting early in the morning near Sandy Beach, at a little out of the way cove, then in the afternoon, I was at Keana Point (my favorite spot). I generally tell people not to waste their time visiting Oahu, however. I only know these spots because I live here.

    I have to admit that Halaeakala crater is quite stunning; the last time I was there I wasn't really prepared go where I needed - I wanted to hike the Sliding Sands trail (which I did for a few miles), but neglected to take any water or food with me.

    I laughed when read that! I remember when I drove up there less that a year ago on a perfect Hawaiian day, I mean the kind of day when there is not a single cloud anywhere and absolutely no wind, even up there at 10000 feet over the ocean.
    The weather felt so great and I was so elated that I thought to myself " Oh, what a great day to go for a walk" A few minutes after that I found myself descending the sliding sands trail very leileisurely shorts and a T shirt. I walked for two hours and experienced the crater innards with great intimacy. I heard the Nene ducks comcommunicatingd gliding down into the crater at great speeds and only two feet away from the ground. It seemed as they could go on for ever. Other than the little noise put out by the nenes, the silence was so full it permeated though the skin on its way into the soul to become part of it.
    I kept on looking back, to judge how far I was. I was now so far that I had lost sight of the visitor outlook cabin. I had made it almost all the way to the camping grounds when I felt quietly but deeply that it was time for me to start my journey back up the sliding sands.
    What? Water? What is that? There was nothing that resembled anything like water up there. I took a couple of leaks on my way down but this time I was running dry, very dry. First it was my tonge, later all the ducts into my stomach, later, ok. you know what I mean. I was dry all the way down. Weird and unconuncomfortableing I've got to say.
    Walk I must I said to myself. There were no choices. I walked, and walked and took my breaks every time my heart was about to rip my chest apart and I made it all the way to the car in three hours and fifty minutes making the whole round trip almost six hours of walking.
    I had two quarters of water that I drank very quickly and drove for an hour to my home in Paia.
    The sintoms of dehidration would remain for another three days.
    I feel I have learned my lesson the hard way. Take water next time!!

    Well, we've got plenty of water here today. It's been raining hard on and off all morning - well that is the price of living in paradise.
