Re: Century ride

Not on Kona course. On (much of) the original Ironman course on Oahu. This was open course (traffic, signals, pedestrians) and self-supported, so it was not for time. It was for, uh, fun. I did not finish until after midnight. But it was great. [more]

Did it. My own private Ironman. Lovely 2.4-mile swim, hot and very windy 112 miles on the bike, and a beautiful night sky with the moon shining down on the ocean for the 26.2-mile marathon.

Still in recovery mode, but feeling [more]

My retirement celebration!

A friend and I will hit the ocean tomorrow (Weds.) around 6:30 AM in Honolulu and swim 2.4 miles, then hop on our bikes and ride 112 miles through 90-degree heat ... and then run a marathon (26.2 miles). Just the two of us. Estimated finish: 11 PM. [more]

My question (Finally!): How strictly will Air Berlin enforce their rules?

I have never flown Air Berlin. But my experience with other cut-rate carriers is that they enforce the baggage rule strictly. Baggage charges are a major [more]

Re: KIM: A Few Kind Words

As KIM's tenants sell everyday necessities, it's not likely to be much affected by e-commerce...

Perhaps. But retail space is overbuilt in many locations as businesses that are vulnerable to e-commerce disappear. That space [more]

Re: trip to Essen, Germany

This fare is $1276 R/T on Delta. I am pretty sure that you can pay for part of the ticket using your Delta freq-flyer miles at a rate of 10,000 miles = $100, if you wanted to do that. This would be way easier than other options and probably about the [more]

Re: Portland OR: 2014 Summer hottest on record

Our daughter and SIL (and most wonderful granddaughter in the world) live in Eugene, and it has been hotter there this summer than it has been here in Honolulu (which actually only rarely gets much over 90).
