    I followed a drunk driver going out to Hana on New years morning. Half way through he hit the block wall at the entrance to a single lane bridge. It probably saved his life, since he didnt go over one of those cliffs.

    Oh boy....? The only way we could see how beautiful it is, would be to drive off the cliff. I didn't even see a deer run across the road..... but hell, I'll just go look out my back door for that.

    You don't happen to go that way during the daylight hours, do ya?

    "Arguably" is kinda an understatment.

    Kinda reminds me of the first time I drove to Whistler before they fixed the highway for the Olympics. Not quite as twisty-turney but I did have fog, rain, snow and icy mountain roads to contend with. My knuckles have never been so white.
    Wicked video!

    Thanks sticky... I thought it was a pretty wicked challenge, and enjoyed the lack of traffic!!

    i got a problem with it. i been on that drive to hanna. yes it is twisty, BUT.....that video is just a couple pieces looped over and over. seen the same concrete abutment in the same location..........i know better. google MAUI, and look at the road on the map. the pretties part of that drive, is from HANA, SOUTH, 330 & 31!!!! when we was there in 95, the car rental company told us IF we went to hana, that we should return from there NORTH, the way we went. IF we went past hana SOUTH.........the car rental insurance would not cover anything!!!!!

    I've done this drive a few times, it is spectacular. One of the few things that lives up to the hype.

    it ain't no freakin loop dude...

    ..and that was just 19 minutes out of 69... all just like that.. (I sped the 19 to 8.5, because that looks like it felt to me, behind the wheel)

    Looks like fun
    I think you need to replace one of your headlights or have them adjusted.
    My 8yr old was watching with me and lifted an eyebrow when he heard some of the lyrics on the soundtrack.....

    "By Demons Be Driven" might be appropriate....

    Now Wayne... you and I both know that if you set your 8 year old in front of an iSign video, you did it with your eyes open, & full knowledge of my reputation :wink:

    Almost what I had in mind... I thought of "Far Beyond Driven"... But yes, your suggestion might be appropriate for me :omg:

    Here is another bit of a clue as to what this drive is like... Op's ridiculous misperception that I doctored the video inspired me to find this little look at why that was such a preposterous notion, since I could have even shot a video 5 times longer that remained just like that one:
