Hi Scout, I feel a bit silly now starting that Kapiolani thread. I was still figuring out this site. I too am not sure what Marie saw in Mike Z. When I heard they were dating, I was taken aback for sure. Steve was indeed a nice guy. Very enthusiastic and humble. Of course my information is very old now, 17 years, but last I heard Edwina an Will were still together. Will was a great guy. We were students together, and he joined staff about the same time I did. We used to hike in the mountains behind Honolulu every weekend for a while. I saw Barney a lot while doing the BC. He got a job at a nuclear power plant near LA. He married a girl name Joanie, who was also on the BC. Erin got remarried too, but not sure about Jan. Alliison was working at AO according to Barney. I never saw her. Not sure about Christy. Totally forgot about her. Yes, Makaloa St was just a block away from the mission, just off Piikoi. Second apartment on the left. Frank and Rene didn't stay together. Frank remarried, and lived in the SF Bay area, running another mission. Their son seemed to stay with him a lot. I never heard from Rene again. Really, I liked Rene, but boy could she fly off the handle! Yikes! Still, she could be very nice too. I don't know a lot of other Mission staff that made it to Flag either. Or just don't remember. Lots of Org staff did, and were on lines in LA. Totally understand about leaving and friendships. I remember you and Pineapple and always admired what you both were able to do. Life goes on. I don't know about you and Pineapple, but as a CL 6, I get contacted constantly. Still, after 17 years. I just ignore these. Time and distance have made me view the prospect of "clearing the planet" as a reality that is not being pursued by Scn. That is a whole other discussion though.
