Here’s a huge mahalo to the man on the moped who stopped to take a look at my nearly taken-off front bumper and told me to go to Long’s to get tape. Because of Moped Man’s advice, a bigger mahalo to the gentleman I met at Long’s for helping me put together my fender with his bungee cord (used for his surfboards). Bless their hearts for having my safety first to get home to Lahaina that night. And may the second man’s (he’s a PE teacher in Wailuku) bungees always be available and plentiful for anyone else. There are still some good people in the world, especially in Wailuku.
