Large Expensive 4x4 Vehicles on Kauai

I was surprised by the number of these type vehicles on Kauai. Big, expensive, high off the road gas burners all over the place. You wonder how many of the drivers ever need the 4-wheel drive.

AND you wonder how they can afford it? and oh yes, off the road they must go....I understand that even on Oahu there are more cars per capita then any other city in the USA. what say ye to that one? Years ago Oahu abandoned the small railroad that went around the Island of Oahu in favor of roads. WHAT A MISTAKE.

It's strange how the taste for enormous, gas guzzlers varies across the continent. In Canada, the Toronto region's monster of choice is the huge SUV, preferably the hideous, belching Hummer. Just the thing to take the kids to soccer and do a little shopping at your local eco-friendly grocery store.

On the West Coast - Vancouver excepted - the favorite juggernaut is the enormous pick-up truck. It is a rite of passage. As soon as you are legally able to drive and have your first pay check, you get a $50,000+ bank loan and blow it all on a big, shiny new truck to show your friends.

In the interests of full disclosure, I drive a slightly rusted, 12-year old Subaru Outback, wear Birkenstocks when it is not raining and drink craft beer. Does it show?

Here on our tiny island these are usually rental vehicles. Stupid in my opinion (expressed to the owner of that particular rental company), though the need for 4WD is often real. In the old days, Suzuki Samurai's were the vehicle of choice for rentals. I miss those days.

They must be large enough and capable of running over the fat sanctimonious turds that occasionally inhabit such areas.
