Maui! North Coast Drive

One of our biggest adventures while in Maui was our road trip around the North Coast of the Island. It is breathtakingly beautiful, but also about the most windy & narrow road on the edges of sheer cliffs. We took this road last year with Kaden & he threw up everywhere so this year we left him at the house with the other weak stomachs.

One of our first stops along the way was at this great blow hole area. It was a bit of a hike down to it in slippery sandals on very sharp rocks, but so worth it.

Brian & Brad getting a closer look at the blow hole...

hmm... it's really starting to blow...
and that's when it got Brian.

There were lots of wave crashes besides the blow hole so we were all pretty much soaked.

Brad & Mary climbed down into this wide basin.

Posing a little on the way back up the rocks.
He's never satisfied untl he's done something that has me calculating his life insurance.

See all that water behind him? Covered in crashing waves against sharp rocks? That's where he was standing just moments ago just begging to be washed into the ocean.
So proud he's alive.
Dave along the shore.
Dave being brave.

Brittnee didn't join us because she gets car sick too easily so we had to make sure Dave made it back & didn't fall off into the ocean somewhere.

See, this is how you pose with a blow hole, unlike Brian.
The road trippers taking a break.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...
Real Hawaiian shaved ice on the side of the road!

1 Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
Reasons I chose them over the others:
1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
How did they do it
1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.

My Experience
I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
