Cool I'm in Kaneohe.
I know it's not a conspiracy or anything earth shattering. But this site is the only forum I post on and I was on the ridge planning to go down the
stairs when this happened yesterday. Didn't really have anyone else to talk to about this.
But aside from the guy dying, which is sad, my issue is that the city will blame the stairs for his death, when he clearly should not have been
attempting this hike in his condition (62 years old, probably not much hiking experience.) They'll just use this as more justification to keep the
stairs closed and arrest people for hiking on them.
I've been here for almost 2 years now, and I've learned that just about everything here can kill you. Turn your back on the ocean for one second and
you could drown. Trip over a root on a hike and you could fall off a ridge. Swim in a waterfall with an open cut and you'll die from leptospirosis.
Hawaii is a hostile environment, especially when you're trying to have a little fun here. They can't keep imposing restrictions just because someone
