Dave!I always hesitate to tell people when I'm working in Hawaii.

Because nobody ever truly believes that it's actually possible to "work" in Hawaii. Their idea of "working in Hawaii" involves a Mai Tai on the beach or something. I know this, because any time I am forced to tell somebody, they always end the conversation with "Have fun!

Um... sure...

Monkey MaiTai

Except Bad Robert. When I mention "Hawaii" to Bad Robert, the only thing he has to say is this...

"Dude! Hawaii? I'm never going to Hawaii. It's out in the middle of NOWHERE! Have you ever looked at Hawaii on the map? There's nothing out there, man. Just ocean. Shit could happen and nobody would know. The island could sink or get blown up by a volcano, and ain't nobody coming to rescue you, because there's nobody out there. Good luck, man. I hope you make it."

All drama aside, he's absolutely right. Hawaii is one of the most remote places on earth...

And one of the most beautiful.

Which is why I'm not just flying over for work, then heading right back. I'm staying the weekend and goofing off a bit. Because it would be downright irresponsible to come all this way and not try to have a little fun.

In the meanwhile, there's work. So I suppose I should try to get some sleep so I can function in the morning.

Hope your Cinco de Mayo was a good one!

    So I guess we can say “have fun” after all? :p

    I looked at some photos of Hawaii, and it’s absolutely magical! But how dangerous & remote it is, I never knew that until now. Thank you( Robert as well) for the info.

  3. I made tacos & nachos. That’s about it! If you get a chance, go see the HPRD or the PRD. Those girls are awesome!
