So based on everything i've read on the forum, Iand am still trying to decide if we should overnight in Hana (as part of our 2 week trip to Hawaii in November, 1 week Mauii and 1 week Big Island). We would drive straight there to drop off our luggage to avoid theft. What I'm wondering is, after we drop off our luggage, how far would we have to backtrack down the road to see the sights we wanted to see but couldn't due to luggage in the car? I think it would be annoying to drive a couple hours to get there and then drive half way back to see the sights, going back to hana that night and then driving back the same day (effectively driving some parts 4 times). If we have to backtrack quite a bit, perhaps we should just do 2 daystrips to Hana instead?
