I finally got a few pics edited to size and uploaded so I can post here.
I managed to get most of G's requests covered.

The most exciting in my eyes:
Volcano Pics.
This is where hot Lava is entering the ocean making new land...
Image
This is some active surface flow, which isn't always seen, from about 3000 feet up in a helecopter.
I could feel the heat through the tiny window in the helicopter too.
Image
Now how bout some scenery... This is a black sand beach on Maui.
Image
This is the "Seven Sacred Pools" on Maui, named by someone at a hotel to increase tourism...
Image
Here you can see some of the beautiful ocean. The big waves don't show up till the winter. Yes those specs are surfers.
Image
This next pic is by request.. for Rose.
Image
There were girl surfers too, they weren't as good.
Image
Finally this is just some chick in a bikini that was at the seven sacred pools.
Image

Sorry there aren't more pics yet, but I will add more as I get a chance to edit and upload them.

I have many more pictures, mostly scenery, but I will upload them if you guys want em.

And there may even be a picture with me in it... :P

That active lava flow was awsome. They were all great shots. So do you recommend the Helo fight? Looks like the way to do it.

Both of the helicopter tours I did were an amazing experience with breathtaking views. Unfortunately it is very difficult to get a good shot from the moving helicopter, especially with all the rain they get there. One flight had the doors on, and the windows had glare and reflections. The other with doors off was a bit more exciting, but still had issues with clouds and rain obscuring the view. I got wet during both helicopter rides, but in the end it was totally worth it. If nothing other than to say you did it and see the views with your own eyes, I would recommend it.

Great shots of Hawaii and Rose appreciated her hunky surfer pics also.

Would it be easier on you to put them in an album for display?

Nah I just need to get some time to really go through them and pick out which ones don't have helicopter blades and haze in em...

I will get more I have just been busy with other stuff. I work 40hrs a week, and am taking 13 hours in college. I don't get a lot of free time, and I still like to see my friends once in a while.

On top of that, I fold!

I once did:

Regular job
16 hrs/wk OT
16 hour semester in Night School

Not recommended

Now at the other end of the line

Retired for 20 years and almost doing what I want every day of the year.

Can't say Doctor visits, hospital stays, etc fall into the category of doing what I want.

That is some pretty crazy hours.

168 hours in a week (24x7)
49 for sleep (7 hours a night)
40 for work
16 overtime
16 for school
32 for homework (2hrs out of class for every hour of class is what is recommended)

Leaves you 15 hours a week for everything else... hope you don't need to eat, shower, drive across town for work, or take a long poo! :shock:

I couldn't imagine adding another class in and working overtime at the office. I have 8-10 hours of drive time a week depending on traffic. Sometimes more...

I am much too laid back of a person to do all that.

I need some time to relax and play games or hang out with friends.

I will get more pics up though! :!:

37.5 regular hours of work.

25 minutes drive time.

The one day a week I didn't work, I tried to get all the reading and papers done, big schedule laid out on the wall.

Again, not recommended for any sane person.

Yes I was doing the Dew that day.

The blades never stop on those things.

Those helicopters are even refueled while still running, they just load up more passengers and go.

I had to set the shutter speed ahead of time to make sure it cought movement of the blades. It was bright enough outside that even in flight the shutter could freeze the blade in the middle of my picture.
