Joel Backman is a casual driver with Royal Cab. It is a unique prospecting tool for him. During certain times of the year, he is placed in intimate contact with people who have money and would probably like to live on Mau'i.

He has finally opened his own real estate office and has established a beautiful website. In the opening "slide show", you might recognize the "sunset" photo. Its the one I took at the Makena Surf back in March, this year.

Click on his business card to get contact details, should this be of interest to you. I have added his website to my "Mau'i Links" dropdown on the sidebar. ->->->->->->->


"Let's all be careful out there!"



I have been pushing myself a little too hard, of late, and it caught up with me yesterday. Too many long hours, too much coffee, tea and cola. Way too many cigarettes.

I am pretty sure that my alarm went off at 5pm but I never heard it. I keep it across the bedroom so that I HAVE to get out of bed to shut it off. It will "beep" for one hour. I was dead to the world. Became aware of my surroundings about 2:30am Saturday. Lost a whole shift. Did have some surreal but enjoyable dreams.

CAB #7

Cab #7 is a dream to drive. A luxury vehicle with just about every "bell and whistle" imaginable.

The dashboard is a hybrid analog/digital that is easily readable. All the features appear when you first start the engine and then settle into operational mode.

You can even switch from "English" readout to metric readout, at the push of a button.

It has an older style meter, which uses a different sequence of button pushing to operate.


Here are the images, in random order. Basically just a "raw" file dump.


Foodland, a statewide supermarket chain, is hiring. In case anyone is interested.
