Well... um... sorry, Ozzi... I didn't mean to upset you. Perhaps this will cheer you up...

Musey +1 from WI
65-70% sure (maybe up to 80%???)--Depends on if they will give me a leave from work, and also on what works out with my Fairy Godmother (no joke... I just found out I had one).
Will probably stay Wed. night to Sunday.
I would appreciate being hosted. :)

I'm almost afraid to post this, might jinx it!

I have some PK like ideas so far to make everyone's trip worth while. Not sure how many of you will really stay longer or would just like to spend a couple day doing more touristic type stuff.

Surfing
Kayaking
Sight seeing
Snorkeling
Pig hunting  ;D
Hiking (included on the jam plans - one light 45mins hike to some falls we can dive off of - one a bit more demanding 2+hrs up awesome views) Also one awesome beach with a log to dive off of for the closing. Refer to Hawaii Parkour National Parkour Day on youtube to check that place out.

Seems lots of people will need hosting.

I have enough space for about 10 maybe 15 people inside the house and I have to give priority to some first. Also have quite the space for about 7 med size tents. Have to talk to my landlord about that. Dont see much of a problem.

I will ask around to the HIpk guys to see how possible is it for them to help with hosting. Maybe even Crossfit.

 I have to let you guys know that I dont have a car, if we all pitch in we can rent a van for a few days to move around. Whomever can afford to rent a car with your group, I would encourage so. Public transportation is good enough but they dont go to some of the hikes. 

 I will be picking from these 2 dates by the end of this week.
 21st thru the 24th
 27th thru the 1st

 Questions, suggestions?

Traditional way is knives. I don't know if I could do it, myself. Still, there are areas that are year-round for wild pig and wild goat on Oahu.

The pigs are as big as your average traceur - 155 pounds, 3' at the shoulder, 60+ inches long. I figured that might be an EXTREME way to try out your PK/ MN skills in a real life/ natural/ life or death setting.

Kalua pork for supper, anyone? [Just make sure to cook it well!]

OMG if I can go I will TOTALLY be down for the pig hunting, and then if we cook it all in a massive pig roast ohhhhh yeahhhhh. Man, I love meat.

No worries, Ozzi... I will try to see if I can make it. The work thing is kind of the sticking point now. I can chip in a little for a van if I go, too.

I don't have class on weekends and I can plot a cross country. I could might just borrow one our Aviation Departments Cessna's, spend about a week plotting the whole thing out (-_-) and fly myself down there. I'd pick people up, but I am not allowed to fly people that are not within the school's Aviation Major cause I totally owed Ozzi a flight a year ago before I found out this rule.

I will be hitchhiking a ride over with my dolphin friends so don't be alarmed if you see me on top of a spinner dolphin arriving on Sunset Beach. a little echolocation goes a long way.

It's been a while since I've flown, but...if you need a co-pilot... ;)

Sadly, I'm woefully un-current on my hours. Like, it's been years.

Man, I need to get flying again.

hmm... If I do go, I could hunt... I am really good with knives and I could use parkour to my advantage... But the chances of going have dropped to 40% :(

If you can get it thru airport security.

Going to ask around see if anyone knows any hunters that could take us on a mission.

Oh hey. If I do go I might, instead of hunting, film the epicness of the hunt!

Hunting is bad idea, if you guys don't know the area or the culture.  There's lots of rules about hunting in residential area's (you'll be surprised at how much of the island is).  Anyway, in order to get a license to hunt (which is required by law) takes two days of training with department of land and natural resources... but you can get one in your own state, but need a letter of exemption mailed in and validated.  $95 for non residents regardless of exemption letter. 

http://hawaii.gov/dlnr/dofaw/hunting/game_summary

some locals think of wild pigs as their pets and will be willing to defend their "property" if you go after them (same as crazy old cat ladies).  To make it even more complicated is that some Native Hawaiians believe in their pagan gods, one of which is kamapua'a (a pig god)... there are taboo's about where and when to hunt.  It's not a safe activity either, dogs and people (experienced hunters) get seriously injured all the time... if you're gonna do this when you're here, just please be aware that rules that apply in the mainland might not be the same here.  I'm not saying don't do it, just be aware, respect the local customs, and above all be safe.

I never said it was safe ;D I never said it was a good idea, either. I saw some of the YouTube videos with like 8 pit bulls latched onto one pig. It was brutal. Since you said [in letter] that it wasn't fun, and you didn't enjoy it, that's fine.

I was trying to think of low cost things the group could do in a natural setting. Resident license is $10 + $5 tag. Plus the class, which is full on Oahu until Dec 18/19.

On Maui, I've flushed goats and deer. I wasn't trying to hunt them, but it was a very primal experience, like swimming with [endangered] turtles, or getting out of the water and seeing shark fins. ;D
