    118 Went on a first date last night. Sat on the beach with some adult beverages hoping to catch a rocket launch at the cape 100 miles away. Never saw it and we got cold so ended up sitting in her car talking for an hour and a half. We talked about going to a restaurant but this is a tourist, resort island and it's spring break so we knew all the restaurants would be packed at that time. As I was backing out to go home I checked the rocket launch and it had been delayed and was at T-minus 2 minutes so I parked and looked. Saw it really good for about a minute or more. The night time ones are the best. Double good night. First date (I think there will be a second) and a rocket launch.

    Speaking of Fiare, we just had another grand adventure. We climbed Mauna Loa. The paved road ends at 3,353M (11,000 feet). The big challenge is to start at sea level and go all the way up. My friends at the bike store advised against that for a first go since I have never ridden at altitude. They recommended I start at the road that turns off the main highway. The start altitude is about 2,000M (~6,500 feet). The road is 30 km long (a little less than 15 miles) one way and the climb is 1,353M (~3,500 feet). The average grade is about 4.5%. While not the longest ride I have done, it was easily the most physically and mentally demanding. It is all uphill and there are some 8% grades in the last part of the ride to make this even more fun. I was riding at altitude so breathing was tough. It was cold. I had long sleeves and full finger gloves. I actually stayed pretty warm going up since you work bloody hard. This was a group ride. We started with 4 and ended with 2 (don't worry, the other turned around). It took me a little under 3 hours to make the ascent. Whether that is good or bad, I don't know, but I am satisfied that I made it. Having the other rider pushed me to make it. I really believe I would have turned around at several points had I gone solo. The top was interesting. No plants, no birds, no noise except the wind and whatever noise you make. The slopes of these volcanoes have been used for astronaut training for the lunar landings. The also simulate what a biosphere on Mars or the Moon might be like. While the utter barrenness offers a unique beauty, I am glad to live among the plants and animals of our biosphere. Going down was fun! Like an hour long rollercoaster ride. At the bottom the other rider was done but I had a little more in me. I rode on the highway to another park and back to make for a 75km ride in total. Dawn - There was just the smallest sliver of a nearly new Moon which can be seen if you zoom on the photo... This was the starting point. The kipuka. A kipuka is an island of land that was surrounded by lava. These can be interesting because sometimes evolution takes some interesting turns in these isolated spots. The kipuka will be used as a reference to show progress of the ride. Various rest stops. Way, way, off in the distance is Hilo, my hometown... Couple more rest stops. The elevation is painted onto the road pavement. The top of the road. Made it! After the descent, I found this line of cumulus clouds interesting...

    100 today. It was a very warm and humid day yesterday. Took a break from riding since I had racked up 250 km over the previous 3 days. Took the day to catch up on some other things around the house like repotting this anthurium. Last night was still warm and humid and I didn't sleep well. Finally, this morning, it is raining. This is the remnants of former hurricane Barbara which is now just a swirl of moisture. It is still humid but the rain, at least, moves the air around a little.

    83 on a wet Wednesday. It's a holiday and perfect weather for cozying up in bed and watching tv.

    @Kit - We tied again! Went to Volcano yesterday. It is interesting to compare Kilauea. The first photo was taken nearly one year ago. I was finally able to get a picture of me and Kokopelli. The last photo is a tree mold. When a lava flow inundates an area, the trees molded. They leave behind these tree molds which help give an idea of how thick the flow was. It amazes me how symmetrical these are.

    @Kit all the best!! 90 this morning p.s. halo top ice cream doesn't spike me (two to three teaspoons). it's a lower carb, higher fat ice cream containing erithrytol (6-8 grams depending on flavour) and 4 or 5 grams of sugar and 4 fibre, per half a cup. sugar alcohols don't affect my BG, maltilol included. so this brand works for me. i've tried their chocolate chip cookie dough but the candy bar flavour is much better.
