I found out recently that I live 10 minutes away from someone else on the forums.
Someone I have not met nor did I know him before coming here.

Hey, what part of SD are you from. I used to live in sioux falls until just a few months ago when me and my entire family moved to Montana. So, guess you're not as special as you think. :p

I've never lived in Hawaii, but I've stayed at the Kea Lani Resort on Maui twice. That is the coolest resort you will ever go to. If you have been there, you know what I mean.

My wife and I stayed there on our Honeymoon...

We liked it so much, we went back two years later...
It IS a beautiful resort...(In fact, that whole area of the Island..[forgive my spelling] Wyleia, Mackenna, Kiehe are my absolute fav. spots anywhere:))

:max:

BTW-I'm pretty sure Darth Bjorn doesn't live too far away from me...I'm in Claremont;)

114, my wife is from Souix Falls. :) Her parents just moved to Phoenix a few years ago though but her Grand mother still lives in Pieire which is close to Rapid city , right ACDC?

so that's 3 people with ties to SD.

Anyone from Seattle?

I think I've heard of Irene, but I have definately been to Yankton. My brother's a huge fan of Cabellas Fishing stuff.

Yup, Piere and Rapid are all close by on the west side of the state.

Yeah, that's a place you just don't forget. Like that view of [spelling] Mullocini crater just off the beach and Lanai on the horizon. Beautiful.

Me and the wifewent to maui a few years back and stayed at a condo at suger beach in Keihi. We spent a lot of time in Waialeia.

The part I liked best was snorkling at Molokini and the copter ride over haliakala , the drive to Hana was nice too, a little scary at times...:D

Oooohhhhh so true...

Did you get to see Lindburgh's gravesite in Hana?
(Beautiful site! Easy to see why he wanted to spend eternity there)

We met Paul Stanley (Kiss) in Lahaina on our h'moon:D:D

Also got to see a White-tip Shark(baby) while snorkeling @Molokini...They made us get outta the water, tho...
"Wherever baby is, mama's not too far away";)

And the stuffed fish at "Mama's Fish House"
MMMMMMMMmmmmmmm Them's Eats!!!!

By the time we got to Hana we had to turn around a leave. I'm not sure exactly how long it took to get there but I want to say 4 hours. We had the little tape you can play as you drive and we stopped at just about every place they said to. the black beach was cool as well. When we were returning to our car from one of the stos we heard someone's tape playing in there car as they drove by. We had a good laugh over that.

Didn't see sharks but we did see some huge turtles on the way back to the marina. The water was so clear. Loved it..

No mamas fish house either. I do remember going to cheeseburger in paradise though.:rolleyes:

Also, did you go to "Big Beach" by Wailia? We were told that on the far end is "little beach" which is a nude beach. You have to climb a hill to get to it. Wife said we couldn't go. Dang..:(

"Cheeseburger" is where I met Paul Stanley!!!

And yes, we went to both Big and Little Beach...There weren't alot of people there(mostly guys) But my Wife got a big laugh out of it:)

The trip to Hana is about 4 hours, IIRC. My fav on the trip was the 7 sacred pools...Amazing!!!

Someone should try getting a map of the world and arrows to where people live. It would be fun to get a graphical evidence how every is spread out and how big this network is.

Darth Simpson
01-31-2002, 03:23 PM
That would be interesting. Would be a large list though...

I live in Norway, and there's at least one more norwegian here, namely Qui-GONE. Haven't seen him for months...

We live pretty far from eachother.

Wayne, New Jersey...It's in Passiac county.

It's a suburb of Paterson...well it used to be. We just reached the population count that makes us a city.

Anyone near me?

I started to do this at XWA. last Christmas I got a huge world map and had everyone their give me there city (or closest one)and state and continent. I made a frame and backing for my map but I have yet to go farther. :( I think there was guys/gals from every continent.

At least once a month someone there askes me if I have finished it yet..

must go on, must finish map......

I'm in the San Francisco bay area, Castro Valley for those who care. Oh, and for GUNNER and rolsen, both my brothers and their significant others, plus about half of their high school friends live up in the Seattle area (mainly east of Seattle, and a little north).
