No emergency services beyond this point” kinda thing. If people don’t know what the hazards are then they don’t belong there anyway.

    That was my thought exactly. I didn't realize it was within the evacuation zone. Didn't they just lift or at least change the mandatory evacuation area?

    Did Big Island get much rain/wind from Olivia?

    Sacred Falls is still closed to the public to this day...
    The family was probably from CA..

    I can understand going after a drunk driver or someone who knowingly does something which could hurt others but a natural occurring incident like that is a bit much. It's not like the state did lured people out there then kicked them into a volcano for sacrifice. "Act of God" new gorilla glass windshields wouldn't be covered either..

    They changed it so that residents with homes in Leilani estates can go back if they choose. However, the coast is still within the restricted area. They should just lift all restrictions and post the signs up. There’s nothing going on eruption-wise right now.

    I’m on the east side of the island which usually gets slammed but we haven’t gotten anything out of the ordinary. Maui is getting a lot of rain and some wind. I’m sure the north side/Kohala is getting a lot too but I’m not sure. Haven’t watched the news lately.

    I agree, it was their choice not to pay attention to the signs of possible danger.

    This flip side of all this is that if I saw a sign posted and locals going in there, there’s no way I would turn around after flying thousands of miles and spending thousands of dollars to get there if I was visiting.

    I remember over 30 years ago hiking near Kilauea to get a better view into the crater...my stepbrother was with us, as well as his children...I proceeded to charge up the lip with his kids in tow...he refused to go, yelling to us " if you do that, it will be sure death"...

    His nickname to this day is Sure Death...I've bought shirts and hats for his birthday and Christmas with his nickname on it...

    That's funny sounds like my wife anytime there is something that can hurt any of the kids. The grand canyon earlier this year was fun...haha.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
