Honolulu

Honolulu -- Diamond Head at EveryTrail

Map created by EveryTrail:GPS Geotagging

I was in Honolulu on business. I had to be at my appointment at 9:00 a.m. the next morning. I though I'd get up and do an hour's run.

My alarm went off; unfortunately, it was the wrong one and I had failed to turn this one back by three hours. I was off and running before I realized it was about 2:00 a.m. in the morning. Oh well, I guess I could do a long run.

I pointed myself towards Diamond Head. My Garmin took about a mile to locate the satellites. I stopped at a gas station about 3.5 miles into the run and fueled up and took off. I had my Blackberry with me. I needed it to navigate Honolulu's difficult streets.

On the backside of Diamond Head (where the state park entrance is located) I hoped to find the trailhead to the top. I couldn't. It was dark, the park entrance closed and the tunnel locked. I had to try it another day.

Back to the hotel along the canal in Waikiki where the hookers were plying their trade. I saw the cops bust one of them.
