    Awesome man! What days you plan on being on the Big Island? You're welcome to come and ride with the "natives". Lol. Message me if you're interested.
    I like to hug trees at FULL SPEED!

    Thanks man. Can't wait to put some miles in. Got dinged on the oversized boxes to the tune of 150 but oh well. Gonna spend today getting acclimated (ie drinking beer and watching football), then it's time to get lost!

    The bartender was nice enough to let me bring the thing in the bar. A karaoke bar no less

    6:30 AM surf check in Paia. Rode about 15 miles yesterday to get used to the heat. Slept on the beach and broke camp at 5:30 to ride 10 miles down the road.

    Month long Hawaii trip...

    Day 2 was a brutal, but gorgeous 50 miles ride from Wailuku to Hana. Brutal climbs and awesome descents, repeat. Made it to Hana 8 hours later, stopping many times along the way to take in the sights and eat eat eat! Finished the day off with fresh ahi a couple local drinks called the paniolo and a salad.

    Man, you aren't messing around. That is a tough stretch to drive in a car let alone ride. Pics are great, following your journey with jealousy from snowy MN.
