So tomorrow I am hopping on a flight to The Big Island of Hawaii. I have never been to Hawaii before but I have a few months to kill between now and when I start my thru-hike on the Continental Divide Trail (April). I have always wanted to go and I have a connection with someone who was kind enough to give me use of their rustic cabin near Hilo. I will be doing as much hiking and adventuring as I can while I am there, using the cabin as my home-base of operations. I would like to get to as many of the islands as possible to get a feel for the local flavors. This couldn’t have come at a better time as the Northeast was just hammered with a big snow storm and I am itching to enjoy some sun, beaches, and hiking. Can’t wait to get out there and explore a new environment while discovering a new culture and way of life!
