My Maui TR...won't be exciting as Bips stuff...
9/13....landed afternoon in HNL, then caught Hawaiian flight 1.5 later to OGG. Sunset was happening as I went to Walmart and Costco. Checked in the Grand Wailea. They upgraded me to "penthouse". The cute girl receptionist could stop staring at my "pink speedo". Please girl! I have my pride.
I got my GW wristbands, went to the pool every day in the morning. In the afternoon, I tossed them in the trash can, so those less fortunate could dig them out.
General Maui 10 Day Report...
I just relaxed on the beach. Went to snorkel...went to the Dumps...went to Hana...the road was closed and I had to turn around...they wouldn't even let me through when I told them I'm famous. No respect! I ate at some great places, of which Stella Blues was not one (that's for you In2food!), took Sunday brunch at Maui Prince. I basically lived a life of champagne dreams and do worries in Maui....
REALITY CHECK FRIENDS:
Caddy is 100% fine. Hurricane Ike knocked off my power for 11 days and Internet until today. It torn down my fence and I fixed it up somewhat. It rained 15 inches and I don't care.
There are many more people especially on the coast that suffered total loss at this basturd Ike storm. I am lucky to have my health, life, and friends...here on TA and elsewhere.
A big Mahalo for all thoses that cared. This kind of crap depletes money, energy, and spirit.
But we are ALL going to be just fine here on the GULF COAST of Texas, and I appreciate the sincere and honest concern that you've shown to me.
Oh, BTW, I can't decide if I want fancy waterslides or a palace look; ie, Grand Wailea vs. Fairmont Kea Lanai? Can someone tell me which rooms are bigger? And what picture is on the wall opposite the bedroom in GW 293? I need to know! :)
Caddy is all good now! Mahalo.
