I sold a lifted hatch to a guy who moved to Hawaii with it. If you run into him or his car, tell Micah "Hi from Zap".

The hatch is an 82, grey with black hood.

So, having recently shown that an ea81 will float, are you just gonna drive there?:lol:

I mean, if those Cubans could drive an old dodge pickup to Florida, I think a subie can make it to Hawaii. Might have some rust issues.


On second thought, I guess your previous wagon has already disproved my theory!

You have got to go swim with the turtles near Kona. Coolest thing I have ever done!

If you can get down to Captain Hook/Cook (not far away) you may be able to swim with some dolphins.

Aloha!

Let me know if you want any info on da bes places fo go be touris'.

Capt. Cook is the onliest place I've swum with dolphins, but I've been the water with whales in North Kohala. Sweet 82 is right about the Turtles, but there's are also places on the south coast too. There's a bay down by South Point where the water is warmed by the volcano and it's a major turtle egg laying area.
