Hawaii here we come.

Friday, January 9th, 2009

So the next big expedition is to go out to the Hawaiian islands for the month of February. We’re sort’ve going out there with the idea of moving out there someday. Preferably sooner than later. I know there are a bunch of farmers markets on each island and they are a big part of the economy for each little community. While searching online, I found somebody selling kettle corn at one of them in Oahu. Hopefully we can track them down and see what’s up

The plan is this: Get off the plane after a mother of God plane trip and crash on a beach on Oahu. (Island #1). We’re signed up for 3 days at a beach house/condo type of thing that is right next to the ocean. Velma is all torqued up on visiting “Lost” locations. Lost is a big network TV show that’s on right now. There is a huge flea market on this island near Peal Harbor, so we’ll be going there with “kettle corn eyes”.

tiki_smStay on Maui (Island #2) for the month of February. We found this studio apartment type thing that isn’t right on the ocean, but near enough to stuff for our tastes. $50 a night. The catch is you have to stay for a month. I guess we’ll have to tough it out. How can I do this? I’m self employed with no children. (I KNEW there was a reason why I didn’t have kids.)

We’ll be visiting the big island of Hawaii (Island #3) for about 4 days. There’s this funky place called Uncle Billy’s in Hilo where we will be staying. It’s the epitome of cheesy Hawaiian culture and we adore it. Everything is covered with bamboo, plenty of Japanese fish ponds, pathetic hula shows at night at the bar. It’s perfect and inexpensive.

There is a huge farmers market in Hilo that we’re ready to check out. Not sure what the logistics of making kettle corn are on the Big Island, but this would be the spot to try. We’re also very interested in the Kona side of the island. We’ve discovered that you can get a whole farm with tons of acreage for very reasonable money. The deal is you’ve got to maintain the farm and you lease the land from the Hawaiians. What the hell, we’ll switch to selling macadamia nuts instead of kettle corn and live happily ever after. We leave on the 28th of January.
