    So after eating to many enchiladas with hot sauce I get up in the middle of the night with heartburn. The next logical thing...well here I am. Did some searching and didn’t find anything about my home town so I thought I’d start a thread to share about things Hawaii. Ok no resorts or tour boats here. Join in for the ride and let’s see where this goes.

    Couple of pics of my favorite place to go. My son and I went scouting one day. FYI that’s not me with the spotting scope I’m 30 years older and 50 pounds heavier, lol.

    In the second pic I didn’t know it but he’s sitting next to 3 piglets in spitting distance. The bigger pigs never came out but he could hear them not far away in the brush. No shots fired that day but still a lot of fun,

    I’ll update more as time goes on. Thanks for looking!

    Here is a nice view of the last sugar mill that operated on Maui that closed up a few years ago.

    My great grand parents immigrated to Hawaii back in the day to work in the plantations and become US citizens. Great grandpa was a carpenter. Luckily we still have some of his tools that he used to help build on the westside or Lahaina for those that know the area.

    I realized that I just joined an outdoor/knife forum and haven’t done a product shot!! My 6hm used to prepare a cast iron steamed Mahi-mahi that was caught by my buddy. My Izula really does more work but the 6 gets all the glory shots. F806416D-8F15-4901-B9D9-373EE040679D.jpeg

    Before and after pictures of my Saturday lunch. My son got this nice billy up in the mountains. It ended up being the most mild goat I’ve eaten. Tasted almost like beef. They got a lot of good green grass to eat that’s for sure.

    we ground a bunch of it to make burgers. Going to try mix some with ground beef and make a smoked meatloaf soon.

    Here’s my son’s previous billy from a while ago. He gets first and all shots. Haha. so I’m just a gun bearer for him when he’s carrying out meat. He’s claimed my 243 that took both of these and I’m good with that 9B8BE1FD-6408-4EE1-8825-6AA1AFB47152.png

    My son and I got to go out armed hiking again today at our favorite spot. Snapped some pictures for fun since we got nothing this week. Everything stayed waaaaaayyy away from us this time.

    Closest thing we got to anything with fur is this dead tree that’s covered in Spanish moss, haha.

    With all the cloud cover that came through during the day we had some rainbows. Sorry if this is getting a little to hippieish. I’ll turn it around soon.

    First one of the summer season. 1300 acres burned so far. It’s all old sugarcane land so no houses around but it sure makes a lot of smoke. Fire is approaching an old cane road North Fire Break Road. They’re probably widening the fire break to stop it there.

    Stay safe to our firefighters. They’re working hard in this one

    A016DB3A-DE79-4060-B109-7235CD430082.jpeg Nice day at the beach this weekend. My son took part in a 30 mile outrigger canoe paddle from our north shore to the west side.

    I was on food duty and had the difficult task of saving a spot at the beach for a couple hours and setting up a couple tables, lol.

    81 paddlers and 5 escort boats was pretty neat to watch arrive at the beach at one time. They’re goal is to circle Maui, Lanai and Molokai. That’s Lāna’i in the distance.

    Looks like we’re going to have an interesting weekend.

    The stores are like they were before the virus...NUTS! Apparently toilet paper is a hot item again. What the hell happened to the hundreds of rolls everyone bought before? Hahaha

    Used to be every one stocked up on booze

    Thanks we’re all prepped up. Living on an island I’m pretty much ready all the time. It was drilled into me by my grandma. Hurricane, tsunami, stevedore strike. Gotta be ready!

    Got lucky this time. The hurricane stayed 50 miles north and all we got was 10 hours of rain at my place. Actually a blessing for us, because we were dry for a long time.

    Took out the Savage mkii for some fun shooting today. Also took a 30-30 but it was giving me issues so it didn’t get a picture.

    Yes it’s run by the county and staffed by 3 or 4 non-profit clubs and every one is great about keeping it clean. It’s nice to see so many people take pride in their range.
