    Great Pics! I went to Mauna Kea back in 06-ish at the end of a long business trip. We were working out of Northwest Point, but we stayed just north of Kona. 'Twas a fun trip -- I love the airport on the Big Island. :D

    I drove up Mauna Kea before too. I was one of the few people who was prepared with a Gore-tex jacket, gloves, and beanie. I was looking at all the locals and tourists who were freezing their asses off.

    Do they have any slopes groomed for skiing?

    Just the novelty of skiiing and surfing at the same time is interesting.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    Man, I could live in Hawaii. I went there a year ago and the people there are just like Southerners.Friendliest folks you'll ever meet, unlike the A-holes I live around in Nor-Cal. If it were up to me, I'd move to there tomorrow. Problem is my Wife wouldn't like that idea.

    But man was the food and weather ( in Captain Cook anyway) great.

    I hear everything is on Hawaii time.

    Like, I'll be there around. It's so laid back there's no sense of timeliness.

    Am I totally wrong?

    Thanks braddas, Its about 71* F right now and drops down to about 60* overnight (brrrr):D. Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa usually have temps in the 30's and winds can really kick it up, up there. My truck went right up to the top in 4 hi with no problem. Had my scangauge hooked up and watched the eng. load, rpms and mpg........avg. 17.64 mpg. I love my truck:D
