A Fuel Strike, a Missing Hiker, and Agitated Lesbians in Bora Bora

We’re still having a blast, but there is a fuel providers’ strike. There is a fuel tanker moored off the coast, that cannot move because it would be breaking the strike line. AND, a Canadian in our group left his wife and kids Saturday morning to go hiking up into the sacred mountain, where he wasn’t meant to go, and has been missing ever since. The helicopters are of no help because of the dense growth, and there isn’t enough fuel for them anyway. So the natives are searching the mountain on foot and they’re conserving the heli fuel to medivac him to Papeete. We’ve offered to search along with the local rescue and the French Army – le gendarme – (wink) but the last thing they need is more unskilled hikers. Oh well, can’t blame us for trying.

Moorea has no more fuel, and flights out of Moorea have been cancelled. Bora Bora only has enough fuel only for the necessities at this point. They will only have electricity through Monday, Tuesday it’s all flames and candles, and drum roll… we’ll know tomorrow if the flights are cancelled from Bora Bora.

I swear, I’m not making this shit up.

The good news is that we’ve made some friends for life, and have put together a reality show like no other, and we’ve spent the last half day shooting a sizzle reel that will leave you breathless. Pitching when we return.

Oh yeah, Sam broke the story to the AP wire about the missing Canadian man, and the lesbians are getting restless. More to follow. Text messages work still, and phones are charged. We love you.

A three hour tour, a three hour tour…

More about our trip to come in our upcoming articles in Passport Magazine, who along with VIP Escapes and Standout Vacations, sponsored this Escape with the Stars.

    Holy island batman! One: you are way hotter than the professor. Two: You have to make Sam wear jean short-shorts and a gingham top tied at the waist AND do put a couple of coconuts together and make the iCoconut … it’ll be the new rage. Oh, and stop being overachievers and come home already. BE SAFE!

    first of all, there is only ONE agitated lesbian, and only because the gym here sux and she’s running dangerously low on protein bars. the other lesbian (me) couldn’t be happier about having to stay longer – i just hope they don’t run out of pineapple creme brulee…

    Love the updates from Bora Bora! Fran & I made it out; however we are now ridiculously delayed at LAX. The ‘Todd’ lost his passport & we had to leave him in Papeete. Hope you get off the island!
