Lost 2022

 There's no way to get lost at the Kualoa beach park, especially when you're heading out to the campgrounds.

But a few years back, some youth counselors kept getting turned around on the path out to the main road. Forty minutes passed and they were getting worried about not being able to find the actual way out, but also because there was no phone signal. Suddenly, a tall Hawaiian man dressed in farmer's clothing appeared on the side of the gravel path and asked the driver where he was going. The driver said they'd become lost and couldn't find the way out to the main road. The tall Hawaiian man pointed in front of them, and there was the road, but it was backed up with traffic. Apparently, there had been a horrible accident. When the driver and the youth counselors went to thank the tall Hawaiian man, he was gone. No one in the vehicle recalls seeing his face either. This is not the first time this has happened. True story.
