Wow, really enjoying! Great job so far Benjie. Incredible story with your hike, too funny and scary! Love the text screenshot. Glad you made it back safely. Wish I had known that Poi'pu has seals at specific times, good tip.

Yep. Nothing better then mingling with the locals to find out about daily unpublished activities and sights.

+100

I'd love to take the hike from that direction just to see and photograph that area.


Did you take it when you were in Kauai last time? Id love to join and show you around now that I know where it leads you.  ;D

That you are a terrible human being was established long before I started writing this TR  :)

Fantastic TR, makes me wanna go back to Kauai all over again, no matter how many times I've been there

Couldn't agree more. Although I'm partial to TBI, Kauai is a close second!
Am I a terrible human being if I burst out laughing when I saw this ;D?

Great TR and great pictures, looking forward to the rest.

Sorry, me too  ;D

Awesome pictures and really enjoying this TR!

Great TR so far! Having never been to Hawaii yet, reading all these TR's just makes me so antsy, I have to start planning a trip already.

Stop hanging out so much on DDF and get yourself over there.  :P

Nope.

Yeah, right. I wouldn't trust you to lead the way out of a paper bag after reading this TR ;D ;D ;D.

Oh please. That's nothing compared to my younger years when me and my friend were meeting up in San Juan for a little mini-vacation. I was in Costa Rica. He was in Puerto Rico. #Fail

;D

Point proven.

Thanks and I guess Ill have to see for myself at some point :)

Point well taken. It's all the time I've spent on here that'll allow me to go though

Wow, just found this TR! Looks like you had a great time so far. It's our next HI destination after having been to Maui and TBI recently. Looking forward to the rest.

Indeed. I should take a page out of your book and let my wife relax at the pool all day while I go hiking.

I know my wife would be fine with that. I can't stand hanging out by the pool and she hates hiking.

Worked best for us considering that I really wanted to do some hiking and adventurous activities while she didn't and this was a compromise we both highly enjoyed.

not everyone can pull that off!

Why not? Whats the issue in splitting a half day among one another doing different things?
