My LOST Adventure in Hawaii!

OOOO, I just watched tonight's show and it was SO good!  Now that I've been to the island, I can't help but pay more attention to the background.  Our LOST adventure started the night we arrived.  We followed a tip that the LOST crew was setting up to film near the airport.  Olivia and Claudio called their friend Cameron to meet us for our adventure.  We drove out to the airport only to find out from the security guard that the crew wouldn't be showing up till the next morning at 4:00 am.  So bright and early the next morning, we were sitting outside the fence, hoping that we would see one of the LOST stars.  We thought we saw Desmond and Jin, but then again we couldn't be sure.  Later that day we headed over to the LOST beach, it was breathtaking and the set was still set up:

After some fun at the beach we headed over to the OTHER'S Cabins.

As we drove around the island, we saw so many other LOST landmarks.  Like the tree where Kate had buried the tin box with the airplane inside.

We even saw Terry O'Quinn (Locke) at a Starbucks near the North Shore.  I didn't get a picture with him, but I saw him.  It was so amazing to see him in person!

I've been watching this show since the very first episode.  Almost six years of trying to figure the show out.  Six years of falling in and out of love with the characters and story line.  Some say I'm a fanatic, but really the show allowed a connection to friends that I may never have made without it.  It was more than a show, it was a weekly event that included, friends, food and fun. It seemed a fitting end to these six years to actually visit the island where all the magic happens. I'm sad to see it end, but I'm so thankful to Olivia and Claudio for inviting me on the LOST adventure and for being such amazing tour guides!

I am definitely a Lost fanatic. I would love to go see the set! I hope that they keep it up to go and visit for awhile. Seeming as how we probably won't be visiting anytime soon. Thanks for posting the pics!
