Which island? Or all islands?
Are you taking your bike? If so, I expect a lot of ride reports!

Wrong island for that Eddy!
I spent two weeks on Oahu a couple of years ago while my wife was doing some military work. Nice place but Honolulu is kind of like Phoenix on an island... just not near as hot. Make sure to check out some of the other islands while you are there. Maui is our favorite.

I'm guessing you looked at Matson for shipping from long beach? Look up Pasha in San Diego. They have a ship that goes back and forth. Its in SD every 2 weekss. Ships name is the Jean Anne. I always see lots of bikes going over and coming back.

I had some of the Kona something pale ale the other day with just a hint of coconut. Sounds weird but it was actually pretty good. Congrads on the job! Was riding Fort Valley yesterday and wondered what you were up to. Have a good time down there.

Oahu.It's been challenging but I am winging it pretty good ...Love it here,i just mess the bike though.It's very slow going here.it's a wonder anything gets done.Will see how it goes,they have alot of contracts out there,talking about fiber to the rest of the islands.They landed one here to help with the fiber. Everybody is getting trained and will have a 2 week rotation doing fiber installs.If this works out I'll have to sell all my stuff and move here permanently.100K a year is hard to pass up.Other than that I am have a blast Hell of a opportunity
