I Made It!!!!

Despite having to finish packing by candlelight due to a power outage (gee, did I leave just in time?), yers truly made it out to the Vancouver Airport , courtesy of Mr. Scout, hopped AC hassle free, and I think it’s the first time travelling that I haven’t been searched. YAY! Perhaps they’re easing up on middle aged women with tatoos and a pierced eyebrow, or perhaps I’m getting a bit savvier at saying ‘just the right thing’.

I’m in chaotic Kona, it’s hot and sunny (so shoot me). This isn’t my fave place to be but my el cheapo tent from last year needs replacing and I want to sell my truck and replace with another beater truck. Then it’s off to Hilo (jungle side and the California chaos doesn’t exist there) to do a healing on an old native indian gent there. A ‘tarp raising’ on Saturday for friends (hey, housing here is expensive…some just get pallettes for flooring a a tarp overhead).

Back to the hostel soon , having had a swim today…hmm, can’t remember what else, just relaxing I guess.

I didn’t take a pic of the Honu (turtle) but hope to have some images soon, including my Hawaiian sistah, if she’ll let me post one.

A hui ho!

    jj…..ya, i heard the storm reports…..ya gotta get that back up dial up!!! try http://www.copper.net i think that’s it…free trial and they’re good. i used them last year as well. get the mail yet?

    gab…ya, man, that was a first!!! maybe with the dems in congress things are more relaxed??? i’ll get a double dose of the sun for ya and send it your way.

    q, ha! maybe it’s because i’m canadian-born. i think it could be because i wore my tux shirt with camosol and tails with jeans….a little flash with an extra dose of difference, they probably thought they had a real loon and didn’t want to bother listening to what i would say 🙂

    Soak up some sun for me out there, I could really use it, no travel plans this winter.

    I noticed that for me anyway, air travel became much easier AFTER 911, no problems going to the US or Mexico, in fact the most hassle I had was in Halifax of all places.

  • 6. harpervalley  |  December 14, 2006 at 3:55 pm

    bruce…halifax??????? sheesh. guess you should have put some blue paint on your nose. don’t know, i seemed to have been pulled aside ever since 911, but i hear the same from many women travelling on their own. considered easy targets or something?

    am at the kona hostel now before i get my camping gear together and a new tent (the el cheapo brand are like bic disposable lighters….$40 bucks will give you a year of shelter).

    Yeah, Halifax. I even had to take my boots off like I was in America. Guess they’re not used to seeing many long haired dudes going through there or something. I’m not an obvious fag and it isn’t a problem anywhere else. Even though I have a bit of an alternative look, I’ve never been pegged as a terrorist. Those people need to get out more.
