I flipped over the guardrail as I was biking on the Pali. Do it yourself knee surgery :(
So far I'm good for laying on my back and QM crab style [not using R leg]

Thanks guys! It's healing, but not as fast as I thought/ hoped/ prayed/ wanted ;D

FYI: Papalaua Beach Park [Makai as you're coming down the pali Lahaina side [past the tunnel]] now has permit camping. It's not at the main Papalaua/ Grandma's surf break, but a little farther down - at Thousand Peaks, if you're looking at a surf map.

If you can pay for my trip there and back next year, I'll join you.
Until then, please, make a trip to Laconia, NH and come practice with me here!
Fecteau, you are the first person I will turn to when I break up with Micah, haha
;)
Fect, you get a gold star for the day.

Oh no, Gregg! Sorry to hear that. Hope your recovery speeds up soon.

I'm still working on a trip out there around thanksgiving, but it's up in the air.

Thanks. Healing is progressing. I have another check up tomorrow.

Well, I tried to set up my trip to Maui in November today, but I ran into a small snag. The charge limit on my debit card was too low... DOH!

Went to the bank, and had that changed, but it won't take effect until tomorrow.

Plans are to leave here on Fri Nov 19 to be there about 9:15 pm or so, and leaving on Tues Nov 30th. (Also in the evening)

I'm probably going to do the sunrise on Haleakala Sat morning, since I'll be up anyway. (Same thing I did last year) I want to go see the volcano on Sunday, and as of today they still had openings, but we will have to see tomorrow. Sunday would be my 48th birthday.

The rest of the week is completely open. I'd like to get a lot of hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling in on this trip. Not planning on diving, though. Of course, it would be better if I knew someone there who could help me know where to go...  ;D

Sunrise is a good 1st day activity because you're still on MO time.
I'll check my schedule. Find out if we have classes then. Let my wife know...
I didn't realize you were older than me.

Diving - I only snorkel for fun. Never got into scuba or serious free-diving like Derek.
I know mostly S side spots. N shore is usually big surf in winter.

Well, you must be older than you think, because we have discussed this many times, and you apparently have forgotten!  :P The convo went something like Gregg: "Good, you are now the oldest active guy who does PK on the boards." Frosty: "Well, I can't say what I do is actually Parkour, so it looks like you are still it."

Sound familier? LOL Of course, since your injury, I guess that makes Tim the oldest active now.

Diving - I only snorkel for fun. Never got into scuba or serious free-diving like Derek.

I dove last time I was out there, and it was great, but it took way too much time for the few hours you get to do it, and you have to be careful about elevation changes afterward, so it limits you a bit. I would like to do some free-diving, but no, obviously not as seriously as Derek, although I did practice a bit here. I have held my breath for 2 1/2 mins, well, once anyway. 2 mins several times. It's a good start.

I know mostly S side spots. N shore is usually big surf in winter.

I'll be staying in the same place as last time, down in Kihei, so that's fine.

Maybe there will be a little more surf on the south side this time, and I can try surfing! Last year there was no surf at all the week I was there.

Very cool! Looking forward to meeting you in person!

I forgot. Sorry. Mentally I was remembering Tim.

I'm still active. Never totally stopped. I had massive knuckle callouses from doing QM [without using the injured leg].
Now that I'm able to run again, they've faded. I am doing some small vaults. Plenty room for improvement, and I have to be careful not to overdo it.

I keep hitting a plateau with breathing. Not sure why. Is 2.5 min what you can do submerged?

http://omaui.com/ is decent surf report. Even if no S Side swell, there's usually something as you head out towards Lahaina [or N shore if it's small] For beginning, you don't need much. A fun board + a little foam's all you need to start. Now with SUP [stand-up] you can play even when it's flat.

Good to know you are getting healthy again!

No, 2.5 was out of the water. Derek commented on the "passing out and drowning" stories of people doing this alone, so I've avoided that.

Passing out and drowning is a good thing to avoid. ;D

Coworker was telling me about an abandoned place he checked out. Guess it's pretty trashed, tho.
There was one clean area, but some drugged out guy was sitting there.
I keep seeing more and more abandoned military buildings from WW2. I'm sure there's a lot more I don't know.

I just spotted another place I forgot about on someone's flikr site. 5 year old photos, tho.
Ah. It's because the place was destroyed the year after. Oh well... looked dangerous... of course ;D

I am interested in visiting Hawaii, but want to ask that which is the best season to visit there??
And which are the best location or hotel to stay?
