Road trip...trippy road!

In response to 140749: same as always, posted by Alex KH on Tuesday, 14 March 2017, at 1:30 p.m.

The road to Kekaha Kai is a favorite of mine, but wouldn't be so if not for our vehicle (Ford Escape). It rides high, has heavy-duty tires and automatic 4WD. Can't say as I've noticed the 4WD kick in, but the elevation helps a lot. I drive about 5mph the whole way and carefully steer the path for minimal impact. I can't imagine that passenger cars don't occasionally leave an exhaust system on the "road", but haven't seen any in several years. Still, I wouldn't blame rental companies for banning their vehicles from this road.
That being said...the road to Makalawena...(it's to the north, not south)...it's worse! I'm still waiting for a friend to make good on the offer to drive us there in his vehicle! (He claims I offered to drive there in mine!)
Aloha,
Kevin Z
