On April 9th my friend Bill Goding is going to swim from Ko'olawe to Lana'i a distance of about 18 miles. I'll be there as support crew and photographer. The last time I went with him on an adventure he was diving into the water off a remote Molokai beach at 1am!!! Sixteen hours later he stepped up onto Sandy Beach on the Southeast coast of Oahu. Bill is a specialist. He swims.
Just to prove that I'm not a wimp I'll be having an adventure of my own in late May or early June. I'm going to run from Magic Island across town, hike up and over the mountains and finish the the run on the other side to Kailua Beach Park. That should take about six hours. I'll have my paddleboard waiting for me and I'll paddle back to Magic Island - another six hours. Long but fun day. Yeah, fun. I love this stuff.
So, we'll have lots of photos and the full story on both adventures in the weeks to come. Check back often.
