Can do ROR instead of of NRT for the extra night to check something off your bucket list.
Can also spend Thursday night at Milt's or Shallots :)
do you know all airport codes בעל פה?
dropping "ROR" like that?

For the most part, yes. I don't even think of city names, just 3 letter codes :D

Rabbi Chazanow from the BI of Hawaii does the Kalalau trip twice a year.
Said he'd come with us and get a boat to take us in with food and you just hike back out.

It would make logistics harder because the boat would have to come twice but having done it both ways, the hike in is 1000x more enjoyable. Some views are slightly nicer on the way out but there is nothing quite like slowly getting more and more secluded and then finallllly cresting that last hill and seeing the beach from a mile away.

its beautiful beyond words

Its even more beautiful than that.

C'mon, you were surely around for this, http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/1773
I was (not that I recall all you travels), but wasn't the payoff there a Paris trip? Or at least a windfall of miles?

That was a mileage run....this seems like the inverse.

Not too mAAny current DDF'ers were around here AAt thAAt time, I imAAgine. You gottAA cut him some slAAAAAck.
I surely was.

FAAir enough, but he is an originAAl ctownbochur member :)
FTFY

Until mAAy 2008 when DDF was born.

But didn't I see you post not too long ago that the destination (as in- actually being there and experiencing it) is what entices your travels, not the travel itself?

Why do you think there's no destination here?  The whole point here are all of the destinations, not the aircraft.
Agreed that the aircraft is not special, but the islands are the destinations? There's not even enough time to leave the airports...

OTOH, I just brought up the concept/idea of being away for 5 days to my wife, and she thinks she would agree to letting me go. ::) So, hmm that definitely makes things interesting...

Just make sure she wants you to come back.

Can also spend Thursday night at Milt's or Shallots :)

Even doing another Shallot's run sans Mrs. AJK would warrant death-penalty like punishment.

The mere thought of suggesting I take a quick jaunt to ROR without her renders me unable to sufficiently process the possible consequences.

Here's why:

I guess that means you're bringing her this time?

She'd do it in a heartbeat.

But her work schedule isn't quite as "flexible" as mine, unfortunately.
