Living it up, with some Help

The iPad Pro is too heavy for this 71 year old spoiled brat so I bought this MagicHold iPad/Laptop Holder from Amazon. Now I can stay another hour longer in bed in the morning or after my nap hahaha

The Ahinahina or Silversword

Finally got my very first shot of the beautiful, fascinating, and elusive ahinahina or more commonly known as the Silversword. It’s a rare and endangered plant native only to the island of Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii.


What is fascinating about the Silversword is how it flowers. It can live for 40-50 years before flowering once and only once. After it flowered a single time, the entire plant dies.

Going Crazy Awaiting for my new Toy!



Because I'm 71 years old, I get this funny look from friends and relatives when I tell them that I just purchased a Mountain Bike! Here's my old fart perspective

WHY eBike (electric bike) and why FLUX Bike?

1. The Flux eBike looks like a regular Bike vs. other moped-like eBikes. 
2. It's still a100% regular Bike and therefore can be used for exercise.
3. It has option for 5 level power-assist pedaling, when required, for hill climbing or when riding against a strong wind.
4. No pedaling required up to 45 miles @ 20mph if you engage the thumb throttle. Did you get that? NO PEDALING at all. Perfect for seniors!
5. Huge crowd funding discount. For me at least $1000+ maybe even more.
6. Excellent components and drivetrain specially mid-motor and battery comparable to other high priced eBikes
7. My Photography craziness - imagine the possibilities. It will be my perfect go-anywhere camera bag with 2 oversized wheels.
8. Would replace my running program when that sad time comes.
9. Biking fun fun fun 365 days a year in Maui.
10. Maui has fantastic Mountain Bike Trails!
