Aloha from Hawaii!

, Prev Next Hey, everyone. I hope you've been enjoying our two-part series on Hawaii — because I had an amazing time making the segments!

On this week's episode I hit up an island called Lana'i. It's spectacularly beautiful, and while I was there I went to this uber posh, ultra cashed-up golf course — Manele. I had to tee off on a cliff over the ocean, so we knew I was going to be hitting a few dozen balls straight into the sea as we set up the shot. So I asked the lady in charge if she had any cheap, old golf balls I could use. She pulled out a brand-spanking new box of Callaway balls — $100 for a box of ten — and handed them to me. Now, I probably should tell you I'm not the best golfer in the world, so it took a couple boxes to get the shot right, with every single pricey plunker heading straight into the ocean. What an experience!

And on the Big Island I drove more in one day than in my entire life, but it was so worth it. The drive from the hotel to the volcano only takes an hour, but whereas its 33 degrees at the resort, it dropped down to only 12 at the volcano! Note to self: next time you go to Hawaii, Jason, be sure to pack more than just boardies and thongs!

I had an absolute blast in Hawaii and can't wait to get back. But in the meantime, Aloha, and I hope you enjoy the show!
