Another great report, Yehoshua! Thanks for taking the time to put it together and as always, as incredibly fast as you do. Your pictures are awesome. Your homemade dinner looked great! I guess that is a nice pro about Airbnb. Sorry about the helicopter tour being rained out and missing the lava flowing into the ocean, but I'm glad you still got to see the other lava. Umauma falls looks even nicer than Seven Sacred Pools on Maui (similar looking, which is why I'm comparing them). I liked seeing the road where the lava flowed over it.  You sure have made TBI look like a place I definitely want to see at some point!

Oh good, glad you enjoyed and want to visit. It was one of my TR goals.

Nice TR.
Been over 8 years since we did TBI. Stayed in Volcano for 4 nights then.
Gonna have to go back one of these years.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

They're great! Next time you're here pick some up. They're around $2.50 each. No they're, not double wrapped. So you can kasher the microwave or wrap them yourself.

I got them at Glatt Mart. They used to have different packaging.

Lol, maybe you know someone who lives here who can send some to HI for you? Cambridge will probably also have.

 As anyone familiar with the airport will know, flights usually take off to the west, over the ocean. Because of the storm we had, we actually took off to the east and have to do the turnaround over the city which was cool.
Sure it wasn't like this;D

Yup, that happened because they also took off to the east. You don't run into mountains over the ocean.

Thanks Yehoshua, great TR! I love when people post pics of the Air BNB rentals, and all of your pictures were gorgeous! How old is DD?

I can include a link to the Airbnb too, if anyone is interested. DD turned 11 months just after we got back.
