Well it was bound to happen eventually. While I was out on the Saddle today somebody smashed my car window and made off with some pocket change from the glove compartment - mostly pennies! Seems they also hit one of the hunters' cars. For pocket change! There is sharp glass everywhere in my car. The worst part is that I lost half of my Sunday outing dealing with the mess and making a cover for my window.

The weather forecasts for this weekend were completely wrong. Both days...

The passing storms have brought clear dry weather to our end of the island chain. Although I have a lot on my exploration agenda I knew I couldn't pass up this opportunity to go out on Powerline Road, and perhaps get into the more distant kipukas. I got up a little earlier than usual, and managed to get up there at 7AM - still about 2 hours later than I'd really like, but much better than my average arrival time. The weather was clear after dawn, but fog and blowing mist rolled in when I arrived...

10/18/09 - Pu'u Maka'ala NAR

Posted Thursday 22nd October 2009 at 05:13 by bkrownd
I'm a little late in posting Sunday's adventure summary. I was pooped out Sunday morning, and got the usual late start. The weather was dry, and it didn't really rain all day. When I got up to Army Road I decided to go down to the area between the 'aku unit and pu'u maka'ala and try to get into an area where I haven't been yet. I used to go down there a lot, following the roads and fencelines, but haven't really explored away from the roads much.

I did bird counts down to...

10/17/09 - Pu'u Pili and Pu'u Huluhulu

Posted Tuesday 20th October 2009 at 04:14 by bkrownd
Saturday was Kohala Watershed Partnership volunteer day at Pu'u Pili, beating back the Himalayan ginger infestation. Pu'u Pili is a forested pu'u within Kahua Ranch not far from the summit of Kohala that is being turned into a native forest preserve, and will eventually be cleared of pigs and as many weeds as possible. What was a rainy morning that became a sunny afternoon. I headed in the opposite direction of the mass of volunteers and worked in a streambed. There were large cyrtrandra platyphylla...

10/15/09 - Powerline Road

Last night I discovered a tool to download old air survey photos of Hawai'i, and stayed up MUCH too late looking at the progression of bulldozing, road-building, plantations and lava flows in my main exploration areas. As a result, I got out of bed with a groan and up to Powerline Road around the usual time, leaving the car at a disappointing 8AM. I abandoned my original plans for a big expedition, and settled into the old routine of doing all the usual point counts along Powerline Road. (see...
