Maui
« on: February 21, 2015, 05:11:46 AM »
Going to Maui next week for my brother's wedding and I'm just wondering if any of you guys that've been there have any suggestions on what I can get into (food, sights, etc.).

Go to the town Paia if you're arty. If you're into weed you can score some off the guy that works at the hemp store. Go whale watching. The smaller the boat the better the experience will be. Get on the small inflatable boat that the navy seals use. Sorry I don't remember the company name. There's some nice curbs by the aquarium if you wanna skate.  Order a lahaina sunset if you're into cocktails. Bamboo forest. You're going to Maui! Lucky  ;D

red sand beach in hana is rad. bring goggles and you're in another world! i hated maui when i was there but i'm a negative jerk who likes places like cleveland and detroit. enroute to hana [from paia] are some waterfalls, i usedta work at twin falls but further down [mile marker something or other] there were a few w/ less tourists and shit.
climb coconut trees and don't unscrew one, get up in the fronds and kick a few down at a time. it's strenuous shimmying up them bitches. paia had a park built when i was there [04] but had chains on it. the west side [tourist area] had a park, maybe kihei? there's a nude beach over there too, not as cool as it sounds and they frown on hard ons. i know from experience.
oh, i forgot i usedta go to library in makawao. it's halfway up a 36 mile hill to a volcano [haleakala] i usedta bomb 18 miles back, one of the raddest hills i've ever experienced and it spits you out in paia.

-'The road to Hana' is pretty amazing. Blow holes, waterfalls, fruit that tastes like candy, amazing scenery and vistas.

-Honolua Bay. Even if you don't surf its a stunning location and you might just see one of the best waves on the planet in action, especially in winter. If its calm inside the bay is good snorkeling. I swam with manta rays there, within an hour or so of getting off the plane.

-Big Beach for body surfing.

Plus some really nice looking skateparks, that have been built since I was there.

noni will open up yo chakras!
nah, that's what some broad told me and my ex when she swooped up up hitchhiking. i was fortunate enough to have it growing wild on my property [not 'my' property per se]. we'd get the juice which was more like vinegar than sweet juice and supposedly it was chockablock of nutrients. i can't vouch for the veracity of people's new age claims but supposedly it's super healthy for ya. we might have soaked them in brine come to thing, maybe they weren't naturally vinegar-y.
had avocados above my star pod at another location, they'd fall audibly in the night and i'd pick them off the forest floor in the morning. the ones w/ a little bite missing from rats were the best ones, i'd scavenge them because a rat knows which ones are best.
star fruit are neat, passion fruit don't have much to em but for novelty's sake, put some passion fruit in ya mouth.
basically anything you can pick, have at it.
avoid the evil jub jub bird who gires and gimbles in the wabe but above all fear the evil bandersnatch and jabberwocky, my son.
nah, there's nothing poisonous [mildly irritating/painful sea urchins and stinging centipedes] but what shocked the shit outta me was the sugarcane spiders. size of my hand they were and prevalent!
you're gonna dig the place, it's everything you see on tv. mostly fruit is the only foods i tried there and nowheres else. i caught a giant crayfish [didn't eat cause one crawdad a meal does not make] so if you're good at catching them it's an option.

What Jsoy said. Hit the wal mart (I normally would not support) right by the airport and stock up on food and drinks. The new park in Lahina looks really good too.

Did you already go?  How was it?  Heading there myself at the end of April.  Might do the drive myself for the Road to Hana, rather than taking a tour bus.
