I know. It's been a while since I updated this blog, but I haven't updated it for good reason. It's a super long story, so I'll make it short by just saying that my head gash from Piliwale Ridge in October didn't heal at all and got infected with staph. The gash has gotten so much better since I was prescribed some antibiotics. It's actually all good now, and I could hike tomorrow if I wanted to, but I don't want to. I'd rather surf my brains out now that Fall Semester will be all done for me tomorrow. If any of you in Hawaii have been watching the news or have been taking a drive up to the North Shore to check the waves, well, this winter season has been the best it's been in a very long time. So I'm going to get back in the water and save the trail hunting for next year (2010). It's not that far away anyway, so I can wait. But I've been missing out on all the surf action up north, so that'll be my main focus for the remaining of the year. I also want to wait for the new HTMC trail itinerary for the first three months of 2010 so I can finally attempt to get my membership (I must've said that a billion times). So I'll leave you all with a 2009 Video Summary of all the hikes my friends and I did this past year. Some were amazing, and some were plain stupid. Anyway, enjoy the video. Merry Christmas, and have an amazing New Year! Aloha!
