    ahahahaha. I went up mana last weekend and may go up sunday but just pick apples.

    I was down Kaloli last month and had my 2wd nissan. back road isnt that bad, little bit worse than beach rd from other side of hpp before they redid em couple years back. I always wanted to camp and throw out some poles down there but never had time. the coast line is beautiful, all solid ground too...knock on wood never sink em in the mud yet.

    easy tigah...this island is getting ruined by invasive species. the moth that eat the koa, the wiliwili trees all of a sudden dead and very close to extinction, the mites that kill the bee so no pollination, the list goes on man.
    some people dont mind the coquis, but whats the very worst is when there is just one and you have that stupid ringing in your ears you cant get rid of.

    I'd be open to trading for some other shocks that I can use now if any one got some for trade. Hit me up.I'd love to use them but there too long. My shock mounts on the front are 25.5" the king are 23.5" fully compressed.
