Pupule Keikikane or "Crazy Boys" was placed to memorialize our trip to the North Shore with our four crazy boys. Due to size restrictions, the stamp only depicts two of those crazy boys. The box is located at Pu'u O Mahuka Haiau State Monument. Head up Papukea Rd. from Kamehameha Hwy. about one mile. Look for the marker directing toward the monument on the right. The road is narrow and filled with pot holes, but eventually you come to the parking area at the end. From the parking area and facing the temple ruins, head left past the three wooden pylons. You will also pass a tree that serves as a shrine or place of ceremonial offerings. Leave your own should you feel inspired. Continue on the path to the opposite side of the temple and you'll see a large boulder circled by a path. The letterbox is under a crevice at the back of the boulder, across from a small path leading out to some great views of Waimea Bay. We put a few smaller rocks to cover the opening to the crevice. Move the rocks and you will find the letterbox. Please replace the rocks when you are finished. This letterbox is large enough to house a hitchiker or two so bring them along for the ride. There is a small offering to the "first finder" of the box. This is only our second plant and our first handcarved stamp. Please email us to let us know of your find!
