There is a REALITY we don’t wish to face sometimes…The acceptance of LEAVING HAWAII.

I can’t count on my hands how many friends and acquaintances have left the islands over the years…some had been here only a year or two…but other had been here 20-30 years or even all their life!

When you make such a BIG CHANGE in your life to move across the Earth more than likely the hope and dream is to make it your final resting spot…Unfortunately sometimes dreams and hopes can be shattered…and when that happens you need to make the choice to do what is best for yourself and your family.

To live in Hawaii for 10 or 20 or more years it can be an ABSOLUTE CULTURE SHOCK when returning to the mainland…and for some…people who return after a long time in Hawaii can NEVER RECOVER!

For many…they feel they have failed…perhaps that they even have let themselves down…BUT…as long as you know HAWAII itself and the SOCIAL SYSTEM in place was BUILT for you to FAIL…you’ll have a GOOD HEAD START to make every effort to not allow that to happen.

JUST BE WARNED…Hawaii may be Paradise for some, but for way more it’s a system that is built to allow you to FAIL! As long as you know this you can put things in place to safeguard yourself as much as possible so you DON’T end up like the THOUSANDS of people who leave Hawaii every year because they just can’t make ends meet.


Preparing for DISASTER in HAWAII

Are you planing on vacationing to hawaii, moving or live here already? ARE YOU READY in case DISASTER STRIKES HAWAII???

Probably not!

We here in Hawaii have our mix of Disasters…Hurricanes, Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Flash Floods and Volcanic Eruptions! Shit can get serious here…Yes Hawaii is a paradise, but at anytime on a picture perfect day DISASTER CAN STRIKE!


We’ll discuss what we have seen and been through in our 20-30 years here on the island and what we did to get through it. You always been to have a plan when it comes to Disasters. You don’t want till the last minute to be ready. Even if you are vacationing you should be knowledgeable about your surroundings and when you check in to your Hotel or Rental ask what to do in case of an emergency or natural disaster…knowledge is power!


20 Things you DIDN’T KNOW about Hawaii

Today we talk about 20 things you didn’t know about Hawaii…This list could be 100 things or more, but we focus on a few things people wouldn’t know or would never think of…like the 12 letter Hawaiian alphabet or that Kauai has no building taller than a palm tree or that the largest ranch in the United States is in Hawaii. We’ll cover subjects like the Outlawing of billboards and the world’s largest and tallest sea cliffs…Did you know people who live in Hawaii out live anyone else in the United States or that Hawaiian aloha shirts began when missionaries gave the Hawaiians white shirts to cover their nudity. The Hawaiians found them boring so they painted the shirts in bright colors to make them more attractive. Did you know there is no Time Change in Hawaii and lets not forget what the The SEVEN MILE MIRACLE on Oahu’s North Shore is…or that the  Apollo astronauts trained for the moon landing in Mauna Kea and filmed the moon landing there as well…lol. We go over a lot of fun filled facts many people living in Hawaii and abroad don’t know or don’t think about!

NOTE: Bruce is off to China so there will be no eppy next week!!
