I just found out I'm going to Hawaii!

That's right, I'm going to Hawaii on vacation for the first time!!

My mom and dad bought into this vacation company time share, it's a permanent membership and is based on a points system, they get so many points a year and the company owns tons of resorts around the U.S. and World. So when they signed up, they gave my parents a free trip to Hawaii for 2 people, only thing my parents have to pay for is 1 plane ticket, the other is paid for. So it's for my dad's 50th birthday, but then my mom got the idea of me and my brother going. She said she'd pay for our plane tickets, so we said...HELL Yeah! All we have to do is take spending money for food, entertainment, etc. So my mom got our tickets yesterday and we're all set. My brother lives in Phoenix, AZ, so I'm flying from Baltimore out to Phoenix, and then were flying together from there out to Honolulu. The company is called Fairfield Resorts, Inc. and we are staying at the Fairfield Hawaii at Royal Sea Cliff on Kailua-Kona, Big Island. If anyone's from there, i'll take any input, advice, suggestions while i'm there. I'll be there for a week. For Hawaii locals, the address for my resort is 75-6040 Ali'i Drive. Maybe I could meet up with a fellow M3F member.

That sounds like a nice trip. It must be nice to be going to Hawaii while it is in the 30's around here I personally like winter weather, but if I had the opportunity to go to a place like Hawaii for very little money, I would go in a minute.

Have fun, your Mazda3 will miss you

My wife and I went to the Kona coast back a few years ago. One of the best things we did was take one of the helicopter rides around the island. The service was called Blue Hawaiian Helicopters and their web site is http://www.bluehawaiian.com/

I HIGHLY recommend that if you can swing the cost, take their tour. The copters are much nicer than most of them and all of their pilots are extrermely experienced. Our particular pilot had done 3 tours of duty in Vietnam and had been flying on the island for almost 30 years. He was great.

We did the Big Island Spectacular which is a 2 hour tour of the island. We got a nice video of the flight complete with music sound track. Totally awesome.

Note: Cool.. while researching their site for this reply, I found our pilot. Dave Hoadley was his name and he now has over 17500 flight hours. That's a few :-)

Wow! Cool, thanks for the info. Yeah, I have started to look into Helicopter tours, and that's on my list for possibilities. I plan to travel around the Big Island where I'm staying, and then for a day I'm gonna fly over to Pearl Harbor and check it out, and a few other places.
