H50 Fan Fiction

I've been going through a box of old papers, things I've written through the years. Among them are several H50 fan fiction stories I wrote. Some were my contributions to our group writing projects, but others were some I wrote alone. Needless to say, some were pretty good, while others need to meet the shredder ASAP.


One theme ran through them all, as well as the group writing projects that we shared some years back: We always seemed to be trying to marry off McGarrett! No, we did not succeed. Invariably work took him away from all hopes he might have entertained of meeting Miss Right.


One I wrote on my own was "The Case of the Driverless Dump Truck." Operated by remote control, it was used to drive police cars over steep cliffs. It was a pretty fair first draft of what might conceivably have become a really good story -- except that I never took it beyond the first draft. Oh, well . . .


What I wanted to say about the Driverless Dump Truck is that, on our second trip to Hawaii, in 2009, we were making our way up the Farrington Highway, to Kaena Point, when we found ourselves following a dump truck. I gave thanks that we were behind him and not in front of him.

Thanks, it was interesting to read! Last week I went on a trip with my family, but I had an unfortunate situation and the car stopped moving. As it turned out, old bearings were the culprit. I was advised to go to a bearing store, which I promptly did. To be honest I was surprised with the bearings they sent me, they were of perfect quality!

"We always seemed to be tryingy to marry off McGarrett"

You are right, though I never did (LOL).

LOL. I don't know, Honu. I'll keep it just in case, though.

Driverless dump truck - that sounds frightening, and I think it would make for an edge-of-your-seat story! Any chance that you might return to that first draft?
