My 2 Near-Death Bodyboarding Experiences in Oahu Hawaii’s Big Surf

I'm not a dangerous person. I don't consider myself a 'thrill seeker' by the usual definition. But, that said, I have had a few times that I've almost died while trying to enjoy this crazy thing called "Life". This is a post about two such near death experiences that happened in the Pacific ocean while

Want to Change Your Life? Move to Hawaii

A move to Hawaii will change you in a deep and meaningful way. It's the most awesome place there is to live, for me. I've been here most of my life, since the mid '80s. Vern Lovic stayed for five years on Oahu and just over a year on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Hawaii

Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay, Oahu, Hawaii is one of my favorite life activities. The water is warm, clean, shallow and in many areas - safe.

Hairy Scary Hiking Trail – Would You?

The other day when I was looking up hiking on Kauai, Hawaii this video popped into my field of view on Youtube. Initially I thought, yeah sure - scariest trail. Then I watched it. This hiking "trail" has got to be the most dangerous I've ever seen - and, most of it is concrete trail.
