VC we do it all the time.

Flights home from Oahu are easier than Maui.

Flights out depending on destination can be a pain, but it always works out in the end.

Are you packed yet, Frozen?

After this week, I don't know why I booked HI for April! What was I thinking? (My flipflops are frozen somewhere on the back deck!!!)

Have a great trip!

Leave the parkas behind and throw on the flip flops. That is all we wore. Sun hats a must. Check out the whales. They were amazing.

Enjoy. From a jealous freezing edmontonian.

I know how you feel. I'm hanging out for Maui like a strung-out junkie!

I just saw a website for wristbands proclaiming "No Ice In Paradise" and freaked out! Nooo! There's a refrigerator ban on Maui. How am i going to manage hot maitais? Then I realised what it meant. Whew!

Well, it's Hawaii Seven-0 for us today. Still have another 2 months of work WORK! to endure, groan. Oh well, at least tomorrow will be a 69'er...

Harley dont worry we are still 2 months away yet, but I have been planning this vacation since we got home from the last one.

Flying standby involves either working for an airline or having a friend who does.

Harley, I've been jonesing for about 2-1/2 years. Strung out and still incredibly addicted. Frozen, I hope you can get out of Cal-Gary in a reasonable amount of time. Hope those rashguards look smashing!
