Comments: Merlin!!! 15yrs later and I still use this site. We’re staying in Hauula during WFH and we’re trying to find a good hike close to us. Then I remembered and you saved the day! Hope you are happy and your family is well. Much love. Dustin

Comments: My brother Dustin who went to BYUH a some years back showed me this site. He knew Merman and said this would be great info for hiking. I've used it a ton and love all the write ups. The sacred falls story is absolutely wild and I love telling it to friends. Thanks for the great work!

Comments: I loved the pics of Sacred Falls - I used to live on the island. I had a question - did the marijuana still grow wild there?

Comments: I found your website and enjoyed the photo/blog of sacred falls and ma'akua gulch. I love to hike but there are things that are way beyond my league especially after finding this site. I truly respect your accomplishments.

Comments: I came upon your site as I was searching for details on the Hau'ula falls hike. I too am a BYUH grad and I think were in school or atleast Laie at the same time as you. I just wanted to write and say wow and thank you for your posts and pictures. You truely had some AMAZING adventures. I am very jealous that I haven't been able to do some of the things you accomplished. Inspiring!

Comments: Merlin and Friends, I am a visiting student at BYUH for Summer term and your website has been extremely helpful for many of my activities here. Thank you very much for the directions, pictures, and ideas. My friend Bethany Smith gave me the website, she said she knew you when she lived in Laie. Anyway, thanks again Man.

Comments: I love the site man, it's by far the most informative and useful resource I've found on the hikes on Oahu, and especially the ones around Laie. I've been on almost all of the hikes that you listed, you definitely found the good ones! Just did the Seven Falls hike last Wednesday and the water level much lower than your fateful adventure so we managed to survive it without significant injury. If I'm not too lazy, I'll add some blog posts one of these days. Keep the site man, it's being used. Later!

Comments: Aloha all, I put the original guestbook back up and removed the other Applet.
I'm engaged and pretty stoked about that. Click the link above for the details. I'm keeping the site up for sure as long as it gets visited so continue to spread the word around campus to keep the site alive and keep students active.

Thanks for visiting
