    Fresh Pork

    by kenmerk Updated Jul 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Be sure to get out to a native pig roast. A visit to Pohnpei would not be complete without it.....(my apologies to the vegetarians out there, but it is a native custom...)

    I was fortunate to attend a native pig roast twice in Pohnpei, with all the trimmings,, that is a pig on a spit, many native dishes, followed by a full evening of pounding, squeezing, then consuming the muddy sakau... (Native elixir that makes your face go numb...)

    Alone Again, Naturally....

    by kenmerk Updated Mar 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The single best thing about diving in Pohnpei is the infrastructure, or lack thereof... Since there are no big mega resorts here, and only a few flights a week to/from the island, there aren't many tourists out this way.

    The underwater scenery in Hawaii is great, but diving there is like a cattle drive... I've done about 25 dives in Pohnpei, and only once did I see anyone else underwater besides the couple of guys that came with me... (I'll guarantee you will see more sharks than divers...)

    Magic Shows

    by kenmerk Written Jan 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When in Pohnpei, try to catch a magic show. On a somewhat annual basis, a traveling band of One visits the FSM and performs gratis for the locals. You can't miss him, as he is an aging 6'2" red haired guy wearing a Hawaii Five O shirt...

    It can be quite the spectacle as small local children put themselves into harms way of needles, razors, knives, and chopping blocks, all of which are operated by a near- sighted man on the border of nitrogen narcosis, whose blood alcohol content is undoubtedly in excess of any local/state or federal limit. (Think twice before volunteering to be the guinea pig for any such tricks...)

    Bait Selection

    by kenmerk Updated Feb 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When fishing for the big game fish, you need to use the right bait/tackle combo....

    In this case Heinekens on 200 pound test was a winning combination for landing the big fish...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Best to keep the Cappy sober and lucid.

    Burn you O2 and surface early on the 2nd dive, and secure the lions share of the post-dive beers from the cooler pronto...
