On Friday, Jorge, Ike and I had some exciting moments out over Waimanalo Valley. The peaks of Puu O Kona and Greenwalls were enshrouded in mist for much of the day, and the clouds were quite energetic. Many of the valley thermals were snotty and mean, but we encountered a few sweet strong ones that led us up to heaven a few times over. Mike Benson blazed a trail to the peaks of Olomana, and Jorge and I were tempted to follow, but we turned back halfway because we didn't like the air as we approached. Plus it turns out Mike was stuck there for almost an hour trying to get a ride back up to cloud base before returning to Makapuu. The late shift included Doug and Joey on tandems, Thom, Frank, Alison, Five-0 Mike, Goto, Tim, Ginny, and Johnimo.
