@Something Fishy I'm hungry for pictures.

TR should be out before long I hope.

is Lepperts on uber eats?
maybe get oahu kosher delivered to you ?

Not so desperate for food (I don't eat Lepperts anyways, although my companion does). Just trying to see if I can go do anything in town.

What time? During rush hour you will not want to go in to Waikiki on such a short layover.  Like driving in NYC on that stretch.

1:05-4:20 pm

Have a 3:15 layover next week. Is that time at all to leave the airport? Not specifically looking to do something, rather to pass the time. Maybe get some Lepperts?

Thanks! will hopefully have data and diligently check weather. I guess our contingency plan will be not driving out, and potentially losing next night's hotel reservation/having to make a last minute res. Since you rented a larger car, did you find that it was more susceptible to winds? Debating between a 4x4 like Toyota Rav4 vs a mid-size

Taller vehicle = more susceptible to winds, can't get around that fact. However the benefits of a 4x4 vs. not may outweigh that.

And whatever you do, be damn certain that you have winter tires before leaving the lot. Some shady rental places are known to lie about that.

Sure sounds like it! But most are locals....
East Coast winter sounds like nothing compared to Iceland in terms of winds and black ice. In your experience, was the bad weather you encountered forecasted before? What kind of common sense  :)

It was forecast, but we were not connected enough to know. we heard it from someone we met along the way.

Common sense means knowing when not to proceed down a particular road, how fast to drive, and most importantly, when to give up.

Any other driving Iceland in winter input?
Been reading so much on TripAdvisor about how dangerous it is to drive etc.
If I plan on checking weather/road conditions every morning will I be ok? (Or could 74 mph winds suddenly crop up in the middle of a drive without warning)

Trip Advisor is the land where the term "self-drive" is a 4-letter word. It is not a good source for reliable information about driving in potentially/possibly/theoretically hairy areas.

If you know how to drive in a NY winter you will be fine, unless a storm comes up. The forecasts are pretty good, but of course anything can happen. Common sense will go a long way.
