    Thanks Jig; I'm not quite there yet... Still "punching a clock" so to speak. :(

    That was :vbcool:. Very, very :vbcool: ! Sounded like a swarm of angry bees for the most part (except for the sound of the surf) but the picture quality was spectacular! What a beautiful place. :vbsmile:

    Welcome back man! You've brought me out of my bear-cave with this post, I think it's time to make my own since I've been up to lots of happenings.

    Thanks Lauren... The North Coast of Kaua'i is just gorgeous. The wife & I were eating lunch in a downtown Hanalei cafe when the usual afternoon shower appeared (just like sprinklers!) When it finished, and the sun reappeared in a Mighty Way, I saw all these "tourists" across the street recording video with their phones. I thought to myself: "Hmm, MySelf. What are they recording?"

    I ran across the street and saw the mountains behind us. There were at least 11 major waterfalls gushing down the slopes! I ran for the drone residing in the trunk of our rental and launched it immediately!

    <sigh> I so enjoy Hawai'i.... :)

    WyreNut - where are the videos? At least upload them to YouTube & send us a link. You can't just describe something like that & talk about your drone without letting us in on it!

    Wyrenut, I had friends who lived in Hanapepe from 1978-1985. Their daughter was born there in late 1978. The husband was a trust fund baby so the expensive lifestyle left them unfazed and they really were "living the dream". :thumbsup: They came back to visit Atlanta in Feb 1979 and flew into one of the worst (up until that time) paralyzing snowstorm events in the city's history. The city was a frozen nitemare. Their luggage made it to the ATL airport 5 days later :vbeek: , leaving them to cope (at our house) with a 6-month old baby with only the contents of the diaper bag for 5 (long! :vbgrin:) days, along with several other people who got trapped while coming for dinner. Good times, sleeping on the floor. :vbtongue:

    Ok, here are a few stills from the video. This was a personal record for distance, and became a bit nerve-wracking! I was over 700 meters away, and about 200' up. I'm looking on my various storage units for the video...

    These are taro fields - the tuber that natives make Poi from!
