It’s a good thing I tell all the bots to bug off from spidering this site because I’d hate for the title of this post to attract folks searching for a certain mind-altering vegetation.

I wrote about driving up Haleakala over at my Vox site. The entry in question also makes a recreational pharmaceutical reference. Wonder what that says about my interests.

In reality, I have to say I understand why visitors are more fond of Maui than Honolulu. Having grown up in Honolulu, I’ve only known city life. Maui is a nice middle ground — just enough urban not to feel isolated but more than enough rural to maintain some rustic. I can only sum up my visit with, "Wow." And I want to return to do all the stuff I didn’t give myself time to.

Oh, and there are pictures.
