Drum roll please...
The week commencing 9th September 2013
The current plan is to have a base somewhere on the main island, not too far from Honolulu but also nice and quiet with plenty of beach and plenty of cocktails (I believe @AllTwiedUp has some ideas on location) from which people can come and go as they please, whenever they please.
I am committing to being in Hawaii (and traveling around the islands) for three weeks, arriving the weekend of 1st September and staying until weekend of 22nd September. So, if anyone wasn't able to make it in the week of the 9th, or wanted to come longer than a week, you can always hang with me.
It was decided not to travel in August as in Hawaii the schools don't go back until September and therefore there would be troublesome young people around (tut tut) and considerably higher flight and accommodation prices. I'm sorry if this is a problem for anyone, but I'm sure you can understand we had to go with majority-rule.
So, get discussing, laideeeees! Who's adding plans to their calendars? Pennies to their savings accounts? *raises hand on both counts*
