Chapter Three – Discovering the Bow

I saw too often where an orange hat rested his thirty ‘ought six on the hood of a rig, peering down a high-powered scope to drop a deer a mile away. That ain’t hunting. It’s not supposed to be that easy.

Everyone kept saying, “You have to drive the road to Hana.  It’s an experience you will never forget.”  Well, they were right about that.  But let’s take a step back and talk about the island of Maui for a moment.  In a nutshell… it’s boring.  At least the part of the island I was on (Kapalua side).  It was windy, the beac...
