It's getting though to find stuff that is untouched. There are a few spots that are still on active bases and some that are out in the jungle. The majority have been vandalized or preserved somehow.
I uncovered the location for a great 2 level radio bunker but when I went to look at it the area around it is ag land and the farmers have not so nice dogs roaming free along the old road.
These sources are pretty decent though.
You're certainly right that as time goes on, more sites decay due to nature & human presence, but with a place like Hawaii, there will definitely be many small sites that the human vermin haven't found or are to lazy to venture to.
With some of the sites on military land or privately owned farmland, research to see how-well the sites have already been documented, and especially if there's no decent, recent documentation, it doesn't hurt to contact the property owner, explain your interest, & see if they'll allow you to document the site. In some cases, they'll simply ask that you not publish the exact location, etc. Joining a professional group like CDSG and getting their permission to tell someone you're documenting a site on their behalf would help you.
CDSG & CDSG members have a tremendous amount of information that's intentionally not shared publically, in order to help preserve the sites, but as most CDSG members are getting up there in years, they're always anxious to have young pups hump to various sites & document their current status, once they're sure that your intentions are good.
