    Stumbling onto the LOST beach in Hawaii

    December 11, 2021

    We were on a day trip to Oahu last month. The purpose behind the trip was to learn more about Oahu, scout some neighborhoods, and see more of the island than Honolulu proper.

    We were up on the north shore, driving around, getting out of the car here and there, all really casual and such. Lunchtime came and we decided to stop at a burger place in a little town called Haleiwa.

    As we waited for the food, I fired up my Swarm app to do a check-in. I’m looking through the list of suggested places and one of them says something like “LOST place crash beach.” I was like … WTF!?!? I had no idea we might be close to that beach!!

    LOST was always one of Cari’s and my favorite shows. We watched it religiously every week from beginning to end. So I told her what the app was saying and she got as excited as me.

    Did a little more research as we scarfed down our burgers and sure enough, the beach where the plane crashes in the pilot episode is only like 10 minutes away!!! We had a bunch of places we were supposed to go, but this quickly became priority No. 1!

    Sure enough, just as advertised, we found the LOST beach. There were only a couple other people walking in the area and I didn’t see any signs or anything else to indicate that this was where the plane crashed.

    But you couldn’t miss it.

    The mountain ranges were a dead giveaway. The shapes and curves of the beach and ocean. The vegetation in the area. It was exactly what you’d expect it to look like 15+ years after that first episode. Here are a few comparison pics, then and now with the TV show and what we saw.

    I’m not in the exact right spot for either photo, but you can tell it’s the same place. And it was soooo freaking cool to be there and walk on the beach. I still can’t believe we accidentally stumbled onto the LOST beach.

    I’ve been talking about rewatching the entire series for the past 4-5 years, but I keep not doing it. Maybe this will spur me to dive back into it one of these days!


    LOST Fans at the Finale

    Found this via Hurley’s blog and, as he said, “this was nice.” Agreed.

    Description: “Before a screening of the last episode of LOST in Arlington, VA, fans talk about the show that defined a part of their lives.”


    Ajira Airways (or, Why I Love LOSTpedia)

    Just checking out iTunes a little while ago, and they have a promo running for a LOST Season 5 preview video with music by The Fray, a band I generally like. It’s their new song, it’s a free download, so I decided to check it out … and near the end of the video there’s a super-quick flash on screen of some Asian-themed logo.

    Needless to say, I had to stop and scan back through the video to find it and make a screenshot:

    Here I am, getting all excited like I’m the first person on earth to stumble on this new piece of the LOST puzzle, when I decide to check out LOSTpedia to see if they know about it or not.

    Duh. It’s LOSTpedia. Of course they do.

    My guess is this is the airline that will bring the Oceanic 6 back to the island, wherever it may be now. We’ll start finding out in only 61 days!!!!!!!!

    LOST: Best. Show. Ever.

    May 30, 2008

    I think my wife said it best, when there were only about 10 minutes left in the season finale: “I just want this show to stay on 24 hours a day.”

    Me, too, love. Me, too.

    That had to be the best two hours of television I’ve ever seen. And LOST is the best show of all time. There are people who actually don’t watch LOST, and I feel so bad for them. They’re missing something amazing.

    Meanwhile, I checked Amazon just now and the Season 4 DVD set is already available for pre-order. Nice! Gotta wait until early December, though. Good thing for us: We’ve kept the whole season on TiVo, so we can watch whenever we want.
