Ah - feel free to check out "My Adventures into Hawaii" pre-trip report listed below as I have just dicovered the delic world of Hula pie and plan on making a "few" trips up there and having some during my first few days over there. I am such the history nut so to be able to see Pearl Harbor, Punch Bowl and such is just FAB. And plan on seeing the new Disney hotel as well. Tho - Q: Do you recommend that I pack an umbrella or is it like Jamaica; it rains for 10 minutes then it stops?? Anywho - Looking forward 2 Maui as well; with the last 4 days of my adventure well....being quite an adventure - esp the "Maui Downhill" part. T.T.F.N.
