About Steve


This photo is of myself, Sir Edmund Hillary, and his wife, at the Waldorf-Astoria. I am a member of the Explorers Club New York City, which is basically the hall of fame of explorers over the last 110 plus years. At the 100th anniversary of the Explorers Club in 2004, I convinced the State of Hawaii to send 1,800 fresh flower leis to the Club’s annual dinner. This was one of the largest shipments of fresh flower Hawaiian leis to come out of Hawaii.

Members include Sir Edmund Hillary{pictured, first man to climb Mt. Everest}, MauiSkiBusSteve{pictured, first to solo windsurf  LA to Maui}, Ernest Shackleton{famous Anarctica explorer}, John Glenn{first person to orbit Earth}, Robert Ballard{found the Titantic}, Neil Armstrong/Buzz Aldrin{first to step on the moon}, Mars mission expedition members, archaeologists of the Great Pyramids, and countless other explorers, discovers, scientist, and inventors. Having a Nobel Prize would be a step up from being a recognized member of the Explorers Club.
