I tried those cookies. It's an acquired taste.

If you see Dog the Bounty Hunter, tell him I sad, "What's up Bra?"

Ever see the show? They don't say "brother," they say "bra."

It's goofy, but I can't stop imitating him to my closest friends and vice versa. You guys should hear my VoiceMial. My friend Tommy is NUTS!!!

Wasabi, have you ever been up the saddle road? Is it worth going up there? Unfortunatly, we will be limited in some of the things we want to do while were there, that's what happen when you travel with a 2-year old and a gal whose 7 months pregnant. :-) So far, all I have planned is the rainforest zoo and the farmer's market in Hilo.

I do not recommend going up the saddle road. For one there is really nothing to see and secondly the road is very bummpy and dangerous. This road is used mainly for the military to go to and from a camp.

It's been a few years, so I'm a bit out of date. Wasabi can probably correct me. We used to stay at Kiluea Military Camp or at a freind's little cabin in the woods, and I'm with those who have said to go to Kamuela ... go to the grocery store and see if you can get a Parker Ranch Steak and have a cook out if you have the facilities to do so. There was a restaurant on the volcano that used to be a boy scout camp that has a huge fireplace and wonderful food. Hilo used to have a very small inexpensive Japanese restaurant called something like KK Tei (I'm really reaching here). I always preferred Hilo to Kona, it was more down-to-earth. But it's been a number of years. Remember that The Big Island is can be cold, especially in the winter at night. I'm with Wasabi ... you need to rent a car or you will be at the mercies of tour buses, which have a tendency to have some sort of agreement and you wind up at very commercial places. Wasabi, if you can think of the name of that boy scout camp, chime in here. One of their features was great game. I suspect I'll find it ... too late to do anyone any good!

Oh, it seems to me there was a great place where you could buy orchid plants to send home (and other kinds of tropical plants and flowers). The orchids were just spectacular. Gee, I think I'll buy myself an orchid from Hawaii for Christmas this year (Yes, I still have freinds in Hawaii ....) While you are there, if you have family or freinds (particularly mothers and MILs) thing about taking home brochures for flowers and flowering plants. Protea, ginger, orchids, well, almost all tropical flowers last a long time if cared for well (over a month!). Oh, dearie, me, why haven't I treated myself to a Hawaiian bouquet? I think I'll do it soon.

Claire, you might be talking about The Volcano House. I didn't know it was a boy scout camp. The view from The Volcano House is breathtaking. My favorite part of the big island is the volcano.
