A well-earned trip to Hawaii!
 
My wife and my 14-year old son and I are travelling to Hawaii. My son just finished a year of chemo and radiation treatment so the three of us are REALLY looking forward to being there - this is our getaway from it all.
And we're looking forward to seeing some of your rigs rolling around too! I've heard that Tacos are everywhere there.
Any meets happening ? We are there from march 7 to the 13th and we have rented a Rav4.

You know what island you staying on?

Tacoma BC 03-02-2013 09:44 PM

oops! Yes, we are on the big island of Hawaii.

Tacomas everywhere! the highways look like a tacoma meet daily.

Konaborne 03-03-2013 12:46 AM

dang man, I'm stuck on oahu for school until summer; otherwise I'd get a meet going on for you.
We have a few members on the BI but we're still trying to get the ball rolling on good meets with more members

we have the most tacomas/toyotas per capita than anywhere else, so you'll at least get to see a lot of trucks :D

lemme know if you got any Qs about the place

Cool. We met with some friends last night who recommended a few places/spots. Any "must see's" we should do/go?
Really looking fwd to this.

I'm from the Ka'u district (south side). Check out:
-South Point (jump off a 40+feet cliff into the blueist waters you will ever see, do some night fishing if you are into that kind stuff)
-Green Sands Beach is a must see! (the Rav4 should make em, just stay on the high trail).
-Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, literally...
-Take the back roads from Na'alehuu to Pahala (mountain views). Stop at the Ka'u coffee mill and sample some of the best coffee!

The snow on Mauna Kea is gone already, but head up to the top anyways.

HAVE FUN!!:)

Great suggestions. Thanks! We will do some of those for sure. My son likes the idea of pushing me off a 40' cliff...

Isnt it closed? The one up Haao Springs Rd that goes up to the ditch and the back roads...connects over to the back side of Pahala ah. Also has Wood Valley up there and can go up Kapapala and bird watch.

x2 on basically everything here haha

especially the trip up to the top of mauna kea.
Snow might be gone, but sunset or sunrise up there is INCREDIBLE.
Even just going up at night is amazing; there's a reason the observatories are up there. Some of the clearest skies you will ever see.

I took this pic at sunset a few years ago. Gotta head back up there with a damn good camera

Just make sure to get acclimatized at the rest stop... otherwise the trip up might not be that fun

One more sleep and we're there. Look out for the three pasty-whites from BC - one of them a bald little 14 year old.

Tacomas everywhere!
