Too much prep work to do now before I leave for ‘The Big Isle’. This shot was taken from my tent (I camp for four months) at one of the legite campgrounds I frequent. If not for the overexposure of the water, you might be able to see humpback whales breeching.

That’s a kiavi tree hanging down. They’re beautiful and great for barbeque wood as are a mequite. Prob is the thorns can be as long as a bic lighter and sharper then needles….plus THICK. They were planted by the missionaries to keep the Hawaiians from going around barefoot.

My kahuna sister who hanied me (brought me into the family) will pick me up at the airport and we’ll go from there…..all over. With 13 microclimates, The Big Isle is wonderous to explore.

Ya, I know, you hate me, but think, you could get diagnosed with seasonal affective disorder too…..just wander into your doc’s office like a raving lunatic, wait, I do that anyways…..just tell the doc you have it , you’ve tried the s.a.d. lamp, the meds, nothing works, and you too can get ordered out of town….wait, maybe it’s the community who did that, I can’t remember.

I’ll be blogging from hot spots, please drop in to let me know how you’re doing. Forgive me if I don’t get around to your sites very often!!!

Ahui Ho (see you later)!!!

    Scout, have one hell of an awesome winter there. I have never thought of doing that, what a great idea. I guess I always looked at warm clim trips as money pits and never even considered doing it like that. Since I’m a camping fanatic, you can betchyour hinny that this guy will be doing same in not to distant future.

  • 2. harpervalley  |  December 10, 2006 at 9:30 am

    hey waterboy! it’s the only way to go for many. in fact, there’s many people in the campgrounds who could well afford ‘touristy’ accomodation but just love camping. and it’s here you have your opportunity to meet hawaiians, other then the tourist guide sort. families and couples go camping for weekend get aways, or just come down for an evening barbeque. so if you’re greeted with a ‘howzit?’, you smile, do that shaka thing (the thumb and pinkie extended) , say ‘fine, howzit for you, brah and sistah?’ and next thing you’ll be sitting with them gabbing away.

    highly recommended!!!!

    Have fun in Hawaii. You do not want to camp near those mountains spouting fire. Do not read Conservative Re-election Adapted Policy document – C.R.A.P. – recently released.

  • 4. JJ  |  December 10, 2006 at 12:57 pm

    Scout! Have an asskicking great time on da big island… flowers will be blooming here when you get back. I hope. Relax & enjoy yourself and we’ll all try and behave while you’re gone (hahaha)

  • 5. harpervalley  |  December 10, 2006 at 1:04 pm

    the anon…..it’s too cold camping near the lava flow, it’s pretty high up!!! more C.R.A.P.??? no surprise, politics, it will never cease 🙂

    scout,

    Have a GREAT VACATION. Too bad those loving Missionaries planted THORN TREES! That figures.

    We just returned from a great visit with our two grandsons… They just keep getting a more acuts case of cute! No bias from Papa at all, of course. LOL

    HAVE A BLAST! (as in party hearty, not VOLCANO!) We will be thinking of you as we watch ‘Pirates of Caribbean II’ tonight. All that RUM!

  • 9. Bruce  |  December 10, 2006 at 3:46 pm

    Have a great time Scout! Gee, everybody’s leaving, guess I’ll have to hold down the fort. That means I’ll have to start posting again. It never fails, every time all the juicy stuff comes up I get swamped with work and have no time to post.

    Go and replenish that great spirit of yours so you can come back and help me with the bad guys. I’ll need it by then, no vacations planned for a while.

  • 10. Sheena  |  December 10, 2006 at 4:05 pm

    If you come across a bottle of Maui Blanc, try it. Was only 9 bucks or something. Pineapple wine. Really really yummy.

  • 11. harpervalley  |  December 10, 2006 at 5:22 pm

    bill…..heh, ya, them thar missionaries with all their ‘love’ were a pretty cruel lot. hey, great the grandsons wore you out again . i’ll try keep my first two weeks down to a dull roar this year , kinda went a bit wild last year (i think it was a turning 50 thing). ahhh, don’t say rum, can’t even have one glass of the stuff!!!

    sheena, sheesh, all these people who can drink. oh i’ll probaly slip a few times so may just try marui blac. pinapple …… hmm, will assume that’s much bett er then dandelion!!!!!!

    OK, WHERE DID I PUT MY WALLET??? its been two days now, i’m stll looking, where’s my freekin’ wallet before i totally flip out?!?!?!?!?!?

  • 12. Bruce  |  December 10, 2006 at 6:53 pm

    Have a great time Scout! I swear I left a comment before but it won’t show up and the system thinks I already did it.

    Whatever, I’ll miss you, enjoy yourself.

  • 13. harpervalley  |  December 10, 2006 at 7:13 pm

    bruce, hey thanks…..i’ll look in the ‘spam’ drawer of wordpress…..sometimes comments get caught in there that shouldn’t. well, i’ll miss you too but hey, i’ve got your email 🙂

  • 14. harpervalley  |  December 10, 2006 at 7:22 pm

    jj….thanks. you behave? that’d be the day 🙂 , not that i’d want you to be any other way.

    Q, thanks on the feet….until you smell them 🙂

    bruce, yep, caught in the spamguard (does this every now and then). i’ll be posting , i hope at least once a week, but yes, we need you to keep doing your posts!!!!!! and surprise you get busy whe the hot stuff is going on…ain’t that typical?

  • 15. Bill-Muskoka  |  December 11, 2006 at 5:56 am

    scout,

    Your wallet is in the same place you last left it. LOL

    Yeah, the Goombas LOVE to wear out Nana & Papa, and we both love it too!

    Okay, so the gourmet meal of Rum and Spam has to be modififed, eh? LOL

    Have a great trip. Hey, that is is what is needed…a wallet with a little beeper like portable phones. You push a button and it beeps so you can find it. Marketing genius strikes early morning.

    Anyway, off to my day here.

  • 16. Great Aunty Bertha  |  December 11, 2006 at 9:46 am

    Happy trails, Scout.

    Have a wonderful time in the sun.

  • 17. harpervalley  |  December 11, 2006 at 10:22 am

    gab….aw thanks…and best to you and yours, and all aboard the harper valley express….wait, i’ll still be posting!!!

    btw, sheena says there’s still time to hop aboard a flight to hawaii on her airmiles , where we can party under the tropical moon (Mahina, the hawaiians call her mah heen ah…isn’t that a beautiful name?)

  • 18. Wandering Coyote  |  December 11, 2006 at 4:49 pm

    I am so jealous!

    I bet it would be cheaper for the government to send me on a similar trip than it would be to keep me hospitalized so much. I overheard a nurse the other day telling someone that it costs $1000/day to keep someone hospitalized. Umm…that would be $16K on this last hospitalization alone…and I was in 6.5 weeks over the summer! I should petition my MLA and see what happens (he’d probably laugh himself silly).

  • 19. harpervalley  |  December 11, 2006 at 6:43 pm

    coyote! you made it to the internet! yay. whad’ya do, sneak out a side door? hey, i should look into seeing if i can get the government to pay for my trip. by jove, thanks for the idea (ya ya ya, they’ll laugh at me too).

  • 20. JJ  |  December 12, 2006 at 9:44 am

    Hope the big storm didn’t keep you from getting out of this place… winds to 12okph coming tonight. Eeeek!!!

    Aloha scoutie
