Will be hiking Pillbox in Oahu next weekend, cannot wait. Plan on taking my semi vintage Vasque boots...

We'll be there in two weeks, glad they got it re opened on time. Pretty easy little hike with great views, just watch your footing on the way down especially if it is wet.

Another one for parking as on street parking near the trail is pretty much limited or ticketed. We park at Kailua beach park parking across from buzz's and walk up adds a mile or so of easy walking but avoids a ticket

Not the most tourist friendly on the west side out by Makaha. As long as you show respect shouldn't be an issue. Meaning don't touch the Honu or get too close in or out of the water. Laniakea more popular up on north shore but it's hit or miss depending on surf conditions and crowded daily. Haleiwa beach another lower key good spot if surf calm plus it gives you the chance to hit up matsumotos and the Clark Little Gallery. Can also hike along the beach out towards Kaena point prob see Honu plus seals.

Anywhere on the island do not leave anything in the car especially in plain view. Worst case put non valuables in the trunk.

Awesome the place is pretty solid.  We head over tomorrow morning, Maui first then Oahu. Staying up in the North Shore just north of Haleiwa, but will spend at least a day in Kailua area for Pillbox+ lanikai brewing + lanikai beach also playing Kaneohe with a fellow wrxer who is active duty.

Excellent, Kaneohe currently has hole two with a fairway green. The real green took a beating in the storm.

I just got back from a long weekend in Lake Tahoe and we were able to do a couple hikes (see pics). I really loved it. I have also done a few in the Asheville, NC area while there for work in the past. I wish I lived in a better area for hiking because I would definitely do it more often!

Unfortunately not, the gov't actually made my buddy work so he could not make it. Weather was pretty bad in the morning would have probably been rained out anyway.

Looks familiar :)

did you play Klipper?

Unfortunately not, the gov't actually made my buddy work so he could not make it. Weather was pretty bad in the morning would have probably been rained out anyway.

Ah bummer

I finally completed the 3rd leg of my goal this past summer. I was able to summit the South and Middle Teton 2 years ago, and this time I got the Grand Teton. It feels like you’re on top of the world. Pretttty sweet.

Some final pickups before starting the AZ trail this weekend.
Posted Image

Got a long day ahead of me Sunday. Ill actually be starting at mile two. the first two miles is actually a back track down to the border and back to the TH so Ill just knock that out Saturday real quick to avoid the hassle of having to backtrack. There is an optional 1 mile round trip detour and 500 more feet of climbing to summit Miller Peak at 9470. Right now the forecast is not good winds pushing 40+ on summit and lows in the 30's so I might have to skip that part.

Passage one of AZT done.
Saturday 3.7 miles down to the Mexico Border and back to the trailhead. Did this for the AZ Trail in a day event they hosted. Also since it is a backtrack made sense to get this out of way to avoid doubling back

Sunday 19 miles little over 4k AEG 6am Start 3:15pm Finish. Wind 30-45 steady 50-60 gusts. Damp enough that I hiked with wet feet for 10+ miles. Which reminds me to go get some Goretex shoes.

Passage 2 completed. Passage 3 bailed on. This weekend the wind was replaced by rain and a lot of it. Rained on me most of the day Saturday feet got soaked pretty much from the beginning. Completed the 14.5 miles of passage two was so wet and miserable decided to set up camp right at the trailhead for passage 3 instead of the original plan of hiking in 2.5 miles into passage 3 and camping overlooking a nice meadow and stock tank. Had camp set up and a fire going by 3:45 by 5:15 the rain came back and just never stopped until about 5:00am. Woke up around 5:30 rolled out of the tent around 6:30 walked up passage 3 for a hundred yards or so looked at the skies which were really dark and stormy looked at the soaking wet grass and said nope, packed up camp went into town, grabbed some breakfast and headed home early. Thankfully had a free day planned next weekend so wont lose any time off my overall schedule.
Pace wise overall did pretty good averaged 2.5mph carrying 28lbs in my pack over some pretty solid rolling terrain.

Clouds broke just enough to offer up this view approaching the high point of the trail.

Trying to dry out and eat, sadly about 2 min after this I had to retreat to the truck to finish my meal cause the rain came in
