    I've been fortunate to take this tour 3 or 4 times during the past 20-21 years, and have also participated in a few other events with Chuck Burrows and Paul Brennan. They are filled with love for the 'aina and detailed knowledge about the history and culture of that area. They're not getting any younger, so it's a good idea to take the tour while these living treasures are still leading it.
