So, Hawaii has turned out to be a nice fit, even if we made a bit of an error in choosing where to call home base. We like being away from the hustle and bustle of tourists and crowds, but when the nearest real market is an hour away and the closest restaurant 12 miles away, me thinks we got a little carried away in that department. We've set up something for next time right in the middle of the hustle and bustle, will get a feel for that, and then decide what's next. We have decided, though, to make this home base. Yep, we's moving to Hawaii. :-) The weather is perfect, the water temperature is perfect, the availability of fresh food year round is amazing, and the island itself is awesome. From desert lava beds to jungle to lava rolling into the sea, all within 30 miles of each other. Though all but the desert lava beds are 50 miles away from us. ;-) Some bits to accomplish to get us verified as residents, but we've gotta say we're from somewhere, register to vote, have a bank account, pretend we are grownups, and this is it. I even switched jobs so I could have health insurance over here (28 days and counting).
