relocation package: So glad I live on Maui, and not the Big Island - it's VOGGY over there! - 06/09/09 12:16 PM

I am so glad I live on Maui, and not the Big Island...
Last month we visited the Big Island of Hawaii for a week.  We have a nice time-share unit that we've enjoyed for many many years.  This time we hit a bad week as far as weather goes.  Usually Kona is beautiful and sunny and hot.  Unfortunately the week we were there the normal tradewinds weren't blowing, which causes the VOG (volcanic smog) to build up.  A long stretch of voggy weather was upon us, and you could really see it in the air.  Hey, they can even … (5 comments)

relocation package: April 1 1980 - Maui here I come, no fooling around - 04/01/09 06:23 PM
April 1 1980 - Moving to Maui
Today is the 29th anniversary of our move to Maui.  It seems like a long time ago, yet only a few years.  What a long fun trip it's been.
Back then we were so young and foolish, and impulsive.  We just left everything behind back in Vancouver, Canada and took the plunge.  I think we had about $9,000. in cash and a whole lot of good intentions to get us started.  Maybe we were fooling ourselves?
We rented a cottage upcountry off Kauhikoa Road, a cute little place.  Paid the first and last month's … (12 comments)

relocation package: Paia MAUI Hawaii, as seen from the air - 07/22/08 12:36 PM
PAIA MAUI HAWAII - 96779       See the North Shore Maui Map
Here we go again on another inter-island trip, this time we're flying from Maui to the Big Island. This picture was taken from the window of our Aloha Airlines flight on a typical sunny day. Not bad considering it's taken through the plexiglass.  The expanses of green are sugar cane fields which cover a good portion of the slopes of Haleakala, Maui's famous dormant volcano. Maui and Kauai are the last of the Hawaiian islands to still grow sugar cane, and Paia was historically a sugar plantation town.

relocation package: Weather Report from Maui HAWAII - Mostly Perfect with a Slight Chance of Imperfection - 02/28/08 01:27 PM

Maui Weather Report - Still Sunny
I had to laugh at my nephew yesterday when he gave the Maui weather report as - "mostly perfect with a slight chance of imperfection."  He's out here visiting for his gazillionth time, and was commenting to our other visitors who are here for their first time.  And you know, the funny thing is, he's right!
The weather on Maui can be boring at times.... mostly sunny with a chance of scattered showers in the mauka areas.  North-east tradewinds in the 10-15 mile per hour range, highs in the low to mid 80's .... day after day after day!  … (14 comments)

relocation package: Arriving on Maui - Kahului Airport OGG - Kahului HI 96732 - 02/26/08 09:35 AM
What can travelers expect when they arrive on Maui?  Here's a brief description of the Maui airport located in the town of Kahului.
Kahului Airport is relatively small, and it's located right on the northeast side of town, by the ocean.  It was once a single building with a tree growing up in the middle of the baggage claim area.  That tree has been cut down, and the airport greatly expanded, but it still retains a friendly character, with a huge central skylight next to the 5 baggage carousels.  All the gates funnel into the baggage area.

Maui's friendly resort town on the south shore.

Back in the early 1970's there was not much in Kihei but a few beach homes, a small shopping center (Azeka's - You might remember the famous Azeka Ribs!) with a post office and some fruit orchards.  All that changed when the planners decided to allow 6-story condo buildings for Kihei, and a major building boom ensued.
South Kihei Road was the only road then, a … (11 comments)
