Hiking and Camping in the Haleakala Crater

My idea of “camping” is to stay at a Ritz-Carlton with no room service. Nevertheless, I reluctantly agreed to go hiking and camping in the Haleakala Crater for three days. We stayed in the National Forest Service cabin at Paliku for two nights, then at another cabin called Holua for a third night. No electricity, non-potable water from a catchment system,  outhouses. No cell service.

Much to my surprise, I enjoyed myself.

  2. I missed almost 4 days of the NBA Playoffs. Much to my surprise, it didn’t kill me.
