I'm on mainland adventure travel for the next three weeks (Orlando! Tucson! Ft. Huachuca!) and it's painful to be missing these great activities. Please do keep posting here... I hope to join some after I'm back in early December.

Sustainable Living / Natural Foods / Local Businesses Gift Fair
Thursday, Nov. 12 from 6:30p - 8:30p
Kihei Charter School
300 Ohukai Rd, Kihei, Maui, HI‎

I'll be there to represent The Water Boy / Mountain Slope Water (water purification system/ filtration system/ catchment system/ delivery/ bottling). Come by to say hi and check out all the other local businesses. The idea is to provide a venue for people and businesses to make early holiday gift purchases from local businesses.

I do not have full details so stay tuned for possible edification(s).

Aloha Keith: I checked out the Solvate site. How do you use their services? No info on this that I can find. There are other freelancer sites out there, anyone have experience with them?

I am sure you are enjoying Japan--lots of wonderful hiking, both urban and rural, there! Just saw the Hokusai exhibit at the Honolulu Academy of Arts over the weekend--a must for those visiting Oahu.

Hi Amber-

Thanks for posting these! Don't stop!

So bummed that we are missing some great hikes. We are in Japan and won't be back to maui until the 15th. Look forward to joining when we get back.

Please let me know if you would rather I stop posting hike info here. No offense will be taken.

Hoapili Trail (King's Hwy): Sunday (11/8) @ 9am. Meet @ Borders' parking lot in Kahului @ 8am to rideshare.

Take Kihei Road (31) going south. The pavement ends just past Makena State Park where a dirt road continues to Makena Village. Continue 5 miles through the Ahini-Kinau Natural Area Reserve to La Perouse Bay. This trail follows Maui's southern coastline from La Perouse Bay east 5.5 miles to Kanaio Beach.

Bring: good shoes, water, snacks, no shade so a hat & plenty of sunscreen & swimwear.

Hi Keith - I know several people in the group looking for work. I hope Solvate can be of assistance.

Its great to see that this group has grown to 39 members and has regular meet-ups, hikes, etc. For the first year, there was almost no activity on any of the neighbor island groups.

Mika and I are on Maui every 1-2 months, so we consider it our second home :-) We hope to catch the next hike organized by Amber.

A colleague just launched a company called Solvate... a distributed workforce model (domestic business outsourcing) - perhaps perfect for folks looking for some extra telecommuting work... Just beware that the company is brand new so I have no idea how many clients are registered and looking for specific skill sets from "timesmiths" - but it is still worth checking out...

There was a great turn out for the Malama Wao Akua art show this past Saturday. There were 140 submissions and 48 made the show (8 by keiki and 40 by adults). The pieces are displayed through Nov 10th. Crystal Jean got two pieces into the show (not part of a set or series):
