Huffington Post - First let us start by saying, you can't legally go here. But we can see why you’d want to.
The barbed wire fence and risk of danger hasn’t stopped Oahu residents from soaping up the plastic liner and flinging their bodies down the 60-plus feet of the “Nalo” Reservoir, a working reservoir that serves 126 acres of agricultural land in Waimanalo.
Videos of people sliding down it go viral periodically, usually when somebody “discovers” it and is understandably blown away. If you look it up, Google suggests words such as “trespassing” and “death” -- the seams of the plastic liner have been known to cut people and Elijah Martin commented on the above Facebook video that he is paralyzed from the neck down due to an accident there.
The Waimanalo Reservoir is managed by the Agricultural Resource Management Division, as part of the Maunawili Ditch System, so unauthorized access could land you a charge of criminal trespassing in the second degree, which is a petty misdemeanor in Hawaii.
I've made my thoughts on water slides perfectly clear on this blog: the world would be a much better place if we all took the time to think about water slides more often. So when I get an opportunity to post a story about the most epic slip n' slide I've ever seen*, then you best believe I'm sharing it with you good people.
So if you're stuck at work and pissed that you're wasting away a beautiful summer day, then just close your eyes and mentally put yourself at the Waimanolo Reservoir in Hawaii... Surrounded by beer and dimes as far as the eye can see, nothing to worry about other than what flotation device you're going to use to slide down this 60 foot piece of ecstasy....
Tell me you don't feel better.
What's up -
I blog... so... it's not a big deal or... so do you guys wanna hang out?
* Okay, I will say this: While this slip n' slide is epic, I may have had a crazier experience my senior year of high school. We cut class one afternoon when it was pouring rain and went to the local golf course. There was a par 3 that's teebox was raised about 40 feet above the rest of the hole, creating a perfect natural slide. So we bought a huge tarp, unfurled it down the hill, took in a few mind altering substances, and went to town for about 3 hours straight before security came and ran us off.
See, that's my point on water slides. I remember about 10% of my whole senior year, but I ain't never gonna forget that slip n' slide day. Find your water slide, friends. Find your water slide.
