Nice.

I do the same with Aeroplan miles (Air Canada) all the time. It's great to fly around first class for "free." They still manage to charge a couple of hundred bucks in taxes and fees though.

Many people I spoke to are affraid to experience summers in Hawaii, but I just came back from Maui & Oahu this July and the weather was great. Sunny, 85 degrees, and a light breeze throughout the entire trip. Just like a Corona commercial!

The weather is like that all year around! There is never a bad time to come and I really don't see the tourist since most don't know where to go other than Waikiki. I do spot them in the rented Mustang Convt, that new dodge and of course the burnt tan everyone has!

The rainy season is coming soon so that might deter some people but thats when the big swells come in during the "winter" months and North Shore is out of control. Went on a shark dive recently and it was crazy! We were only 3-4 miles from North Shore and at first there was no activity until about 10 mins and then they came out of the woodwork. There must have been 25 good size sharks around us. The name is long like Galapegolos. The biggest was atleast 12 ft.

In Oahu, I love the sun, the rain, and ,of course, the women!

Yeah they are building the condos like crazy over in the Ala Moana area. Trump is building a new one there and the starting rate is $20,000 just to take a look and see if you are serious about buying. That doesn't even guarentee you a spot. Some people bought 2 spots to better their chances. I believe they start at $400k and up to $9mil Nice area if you don't mind bumping into tourists. If you want the license plate I'm sure you can call the dealer parts department and they would be glad to ship it to you or PM me and maybe we can work something out. Mine is actually sitting on the shelf.

What's so special about the BMW of Honolulu lic. frame though?

Thanks Nikki!

LOL it's always 85 with 5-10 mph tradewinds, so I don't know why people would not want to visit during the summer time. Also you can't be caught driving anything but a convertible in Hawaii for a rental.

We're thinking of renting a house, so have to start checking out vacation rental sites now.

If you can try and get either Hale Koa or Bellows AFB camp grounds for cheaper hotel stays.

I think it's cool that you're giving everyone some tips!

Don't worry about the traffic because this guy's from San Francisco. Rush hour on H1 in Oahu is similar to driving on 101 in SF at about 3:00 in the afternoon.
(I'm trying to back him up because he already booked his flight )
