Swamp Romp the Second

Today, we just did the swamp romp, the second time since the swamp romp of 2009, and after missing it last year, i decided not to do the same this year. 450 teams participated, which comes out to 2700 rompers.

The course was mostly the same as the last time except that they moved the 4 foot wall that caused a traffic jam in last race. They relocated the wall to about halfway through the race and also had other small walls spread throughout the course.

Take a look at a Hawaiʻi driver's license...

...and you may see some really small font around the border repeating the words, "Aloha State." Well, i was reading these microscopic words and realized that there's a microscopic typo.

Check this out

I was looking at Nathan Yuen's site and stumbled across this entry where a bunch of people in the Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club went on the Puʻu Ohulehule hike. But what's so special about this hike? Well Laredo, one of the Haiku guards went along for this particular hike. I heard he was in the club but hadn't seen any pictures of him and also realized I've been spelling his name wrong until now.

With the hike being close to Halloween, some people dressed up, and of course Laredo did as well. It shouldn't be a surprise that he dressed up as a character he can play all too well. Check Nathan's entry on the hike to see what Laredo was for this past Halloween as well as nice pictures of the hike and the wildlife.

I've never done the Ohulehule hike, but I've wanted to and just didn't know how to get there. Seeing as it's in Kahana valley, there are some nice views at the peak, and we might get around to doing the hike when we have time.
