I learned to drive the "Aloha" way on the road to Waimea. It's a climb from 1000 feet to 2500 feet with no passing lanes. The traffic goes the speed of the slowest moving vehicle, often these log trucks carrying eucalyptus to the port village of Kawaihae.
Another impediment to fast driving on our side of the island and at our elevation is frequent fog and rain. The view to the left is a frequent one. Once you get used to driving slowly, it becomes a habit.

Sad news: Henrietta has flown the coop for good. Greg finally decided her egg was a dud after almost five weeks (normal hatching = three weeks). He removed the egg while she was out for food. When she returned and found it gone, she left.
But she did leave a nice batch of chicken lice that Greg is trying to exterminate. I'm sure we'll have to fumagate all the Christmas boxes.
