Mauna Kea Mission Take 2

After about a month of rain and a few days of major flooding we finally got our chance to drive threw the clouds and head up the mountain to hit the snow and watch the sunset. I can't count the number of times I've been to the top of the world but everytime we make the trip it's like the 1st. Where else can you go from a white sandy beach to the snowy mountain top within 1 hour. All i can say is lucky we live Hawaii. Mahalo to the Hanz for making the drive.~JYK

Bob Fest 2008


This years annual Big Island Bob Fest put on by 3 Sexy Guys took place at Kona's Old Airport. Not sure on a exact number but i heard abount 7000+ people showed up. 808 Empire and J. from Heavywater Magazine ran the VIP area for the artist. Pretty much just taking care of all their needs. Some of the artist included Morgan Heritage, Tanya Stevens (pictured w/ 808Sign), Irie Love w/ AiPohaku, Jenifer Johns, and more. The headline act Alpha Blondy arrived to Kona the mourning and went straight to the hospital. Because of that he never made it on stage. In the end Alpha's band jumped on stage with Morgan Heritage to pay tribute. ~JYK
