Went on a hike recently (I'm in the middle hoping I don't slice my neck open on the sign).

Yeah, it's an amazing hike, especially during the beginning of the hike when you have all the gliders and small planes out flying around. We started with twelve people, and dwindled down to about eight when it was suggested to continue hiking into the woods after the picnic area. After ten minutes, we were down to three (one stayed behind at the picnic area to take photos and joined us again on the way down). All in all, it was a total of 6.62 miles and took us nearly five hours!

I feel that way about bike rides. I'd love to ride from, say, Haleiwa to Kailua or something, but not have to ride all the way back to my car.

A lot of people in the UK plan bike rides to start and end at train stations, so you can just hop on the train to get back to your car (or even forget the car and do the whole thing by train/bike), I think there are even route books dedicated to this principle. I don't know if the public transport infrastructure in Hawaii would allow that though.

The other way is to do what I used to do for river kayaking trips (back when I still lived near kayakable rivers) - take two cars, drop one off at the end, drive to the start in the other, do the walk/ride/paddle and reverse the process at the end. It would be a bit of a hassle for bike-ride distances, but should work well for walks. This obviously only works for trips of 2-5 people.

It just occurred to me that the only time I've actually watched the boat race was the last time Cambridge won. Of course, it was also the year of the swimmer so I'm not sure if starting watching it regularly's actually a good idea.

Yeah, the best thing about staying there, even though it meant having to pay for two return flights, was that you could feel like the only person in the world. Also, meant you could climb down on to that ledge.

I just looked at that last photo again, and, even though I rock climb etc. it still freaked me out a bit when I saw you were standing on a bit where water is actually flowing. Wet rock is really slippy! Yikes, eek, not sure I would want to do that without a very good grip on something solid.

There was seaweed-like thick weeds growing along there that gave a lot of grip. And the ledge was wider than it looked.

Ah, that's good, I was just thinking of the number of times I've slipped while crossing streams and it was scaring me.

Did you get spray rainbows*? Spray rainbows are lovely.

Yeah, I grew up clambering over rocks in ghauts and at the beach, so I was pretty careful. I also made sure I was barefoot because that's when I feel so I can tell if there's grip or not.

There were some great rainbows. Especially looking down from the rock in the second photo.
