      I arrived in Hawaii yesterday. I'm enjoying it very much, especially since I just checked the weather back home, and it's 28 degrees there :D Well, my laptop battery is about to croak, so without further ado, here's a few pictures.

      I checked the weather back home this morning, and it was 16, with a wind chill of 4 degrees :eek: . No problem with that here :D . I went on a 40 minute glider flight today. We got towed up to 5,000 feet, then slowly worked our way back down. I took about 75 pictures during the flight, and bought a videotape of the flight. Here's a picture from the flight:

      Well, I returned home Christmas Eve, and yesterday I had the joy of a foot of snow here in Newport News. Oh, joy! Well, here's a few more pictures. These are from the glider flight:

      And here's a couple from the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. That's steam rising from the ground in the first picture.

      I envy me, too! I wasn't expecting to have to deal with a foot of snowfall shortly after my return from Hawaii. Here's what outside my door looked like Sunday morning (this was before it got really heavy):

      Oh, yes it was, running around in shorts and a T-shirt, cruizin' with the top down. This was my ride on Oahu. I had a Pontiac Grand Am GT when I was on the Big Island.

      Waikiki Beach and the Honolulu area are pretty congested, but once you get out of those areas it's much more laid back. The area where the airfield is that I went gliding at is actually somewhat desolate.

      Due to budget and time constraints, I decided to go to one other island, and the Big Island got my vote, because I wanted to go to the Volcano park. Knowing what I know now, I would have spent more time on the Big Island because I found it to be quite fascinating.

      Sorry, can't really help you there. I didn't relish the idea of having my new Digital Rebel shoved up my ass by a jealous boyfriend/husband for taking pictures of the "scenery". :D :eek:

      I know this is a bit of an old thread but I was looking for some explorer owners on this forum when I came across this thread.
      In the second picture on the 8th response (a view of Dillingham airfield form the glider plane) that mountain range that is right below the plane has one of Oahu best off roading trails called Peacock Flats! I can have more pics of this place as I download them!!
