I am looking for people who would like to join an expedition to the highest mountain of Australia and Oceania (Puncak Jaya/Carstensz Pyramid). Time around DEC 2017.

If you think about making it to this mystic mountain, let me know.

I am from Europe, but destination is the important bit.

Mauna Loa

Hi,

The page on Mauna Loa's Observatory Trail says that most car rental companies prohibit driving on Saddle Road. I know this is now out of date and it has been paved.... but does anyone know the state of the road to the Mauna Loa Observatory? Can I drive a rental car up it? Trying to get a straight answer out of the rental car companies is hard!

If I can't can anyone suggest an ...

Hawaii Big Island hiking

Dear All,

I will be on the big island for a few days in mid of July, and planning to do some hiking. Do any of you know if it is possible to climb to any of the peaks during the night to catch the sunrise? I did this on Mt. Fuji a few years ago and it was unforgettable...

Thanks,
Miklos

I see they have "storm shelters" strategically placed in the valley so there must be some days with ample rain. ...
