Aloha fellow TA Members:
My wife and I will be on the BI 1/22/14 - 2/1. We've been to all the other islands, even close to the Forbidden Island. I love to plan out vacations far ahead of time. Ok, full disclosure, I'm ridiculously OC about planning vacations. I know it is a bad character flaw, and I'm working on a cure.
Till now, every vacation has been simple to plan. Piece of cake. But for some odd reason that I can't put a finger on, I'm really struggling with our BI itinerary. I've read the excellent Top Q's and checked out a copy of Reviled ... now put those stones down, I WON'T be bringing it, and Lonely Planet's Discover Hawai'i the Big Island. I've also lived in the TA forums for a week, but I just can't seem to get a handle on the best way to do it all. If you don't mind helping, here is what we would like to do:
Snorkel and hike as much as possible. Do VNP. Do some good cultural studies. Considering getting trained to do manta ray dive. Considering outside possibility of going on early am boat ride to see lava in ocean.
We're spending a fortune on car rental, so I want to make great use of the car. Mahalo!
