New Buddy Josh Swanson
After my last hike, I said I would have to experience the Haiku Stairs again. After all.... I forgot to charge my camera the last time and missed out on taking pictures at the summit. Once again this was an amazing hike. Fortunately it seems to get easier the more I do it. (My legs don't hurt as bad this time) The one difference is that I made a new friend on this one.

Josh aka. JMSWANSON (http://www.travbuddy.com/Jmswanson) contacted me about doing the hike while he was here on his honeymoon. I thought about telling him to forget the hike and spend the time with his new bride but who am I to argue with a man on a mission. He did a lot of research on the hike. Plus he had a friend back in Orlando that actually worked at the communications station while it was an active facility. Like I said, who am I to argue.

In the end, Josh and I had a great hike. Originally I thought I wouldn't be able to go, but fortunately my court date was cancelled. (I didn't do anything wrong. My car is a lemon and I'm trying to get it bought back).

It was great to meet a fellow TravBuddy and show him a little piece of my world and enjoy something that is not experienced by many.
