This morning's sunrise
My "Silver Trumpet" in the first rays of sunshine
The shift started off slow, as is the norm nowadays. Did 5 runs by 2:00am and then did 5 more between then and 6:30am. 75% of my meter came from those last 5, during my solo hours. Finally arrived home just before 7:00am. A 12 hour shift.

My last 2 fares were from the Maui Coast Hotel to OGG. The first was a scheduled 4:45am run and the second was to cover for another taxi company that had failed to make a 5:30am pickup.

The construction still continues on the Mokulele Highway (SR-311) and those bright lights that I have mentioned before still blind you as you approach the transition from the old road to the by-pass detour.
The "Triangle" was pretty quiet. This is looking across the FoodLand parking lot towards LAB.
A good example of what we affectionately term a "Maui Cruiser".
Just after I started my shift, I rolled over the 80,000 mile mark on the odometer. You might also note that whoever the previous driver of ONE-NINE was left me with 1/4 tank of gas. Thats chicken-shit.
And gas prices continue climbing.
Those 87 flags that I have at the top of this blog are shown on this map. That represents 38% of the nations on this planet.
Not a lot to write about today. After 12 hours, I am bushed. Hope the above pics suffice to replace my normal drivel.

I did leave work a very "happy camper".
