How does one find Idaho from Hawaii?
That's a really good question.
Honestly, I'm still trying to figure that out myself.
After almost 20 years of "The Rock", we knew this was not going to be for us permanently. Yes, a rock but it was the BIG rock. The Big Island. Of the Hawaiian Islands 6000 TOTAL square mile, the Big Island was 4000 square miles of that. So it was BIG. So when you hear of "Rock Fever" that wasn't the case for us.
