This one is easier to read and understand. Most, but not all, of the place names are correctly situated.

This gives you an idea of the island's topography.

Between 7:00pm and 11:00pm I had a total of 2 runs. Grand to OGG and Grand to Mulligans.

7 cabs sitting around doing nothing.

I had decided that it made no sense to keep everyone on duty and was getting ready to make an offer for 3 of the cabs to go home.

Then the phone rang.

It was the "airline concierge" at OGG wondering if I had any cabs available to assist them with a canceled America West flight. They had 130 people that needed to get to The Grand Wailea and Fairmont Kea Lani.

Uh, duh!

I sent all seven of us to OGG and we started moving the people out. The only other company called was La Bella Taxi in Kahului. They had 2 cabs available.

Those nine cabs moved the entire group in under 2 1/2 hours. We just did "round robins" until everyone was accommodated. This really improved my driver's income for the night.

During our absence from south Mau'i, I only had three calls from the "Triangle". That's really slow for a Saturday night.

It didn't rain yesterday or last night.

Actually saw some stars in the moonless night sky.

What a relief. Nice way to end my week.

Wild when out of the blue something like that happens. A cabbies fortune is often made on the misfortune of others.
