    Default Aloha from Maui

    Aloha all,

    I stumbled upon this site and thought I'd see wassup. Actually, and as I mentioned to Ryan, the Aloha Airlines shutdown caused me to look around for some local input.

    Baby boomer, moved from the midwest to Maui in 1998, have lived here since, have a SO who spends time here as well as her home on BI.

    So.. that's my intro! I look forward to the discussions.

    Welcome! Glad to see another Maui resident on board. How are things in Kihei? I'm stuck in upstate NY for the time being - miss it terribly.

    mauna loa estates is in the volcano village area. our realtor just came from visiting our lot up there and said that it was heavenly. no vog and a slight chill in the air. the birds were singing and it was sunny.

    Kihei is growing, growing, growing! Cool, crisp evenings these days followed by blue sky, white cloud days.

    When were you last on Maui?

    So long as the trade winds keep up. With the latest eruptive phase of Halemaumau, a change in wind direction could be awful for volcano village.
    Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.

    I was there last summer. I spend my summers there and winters here in NY. Although this summer I may only get back for a couple of weeks - long story. Yeah, Kihei is really growing. Every year I have to go around and say "that's new...."

    Downers Grove was my town for awhile in 1972ish.

    I don't miss much, but I would appreciate a juicy italian beef sandwich.

    If ever you are over here on either Monday or Friday/Sat night
    you can get the best next to Chicago beef sandwich at Hank's Haute Dogs on Coral Street, it's ono!

    Oh yes, Downers Grove, we'd ride the train there or hitchhike sometimes and hang out there in that
    era when we weren't hanging out on the Bridge in Naperville.

    So just on Mon/Fri and Sat nights? Can you order 'extra hot peppers'?

    The bridge, I recall... much took place there.

    I imagine that area is totally different now. I have some relatives a bit north, but when visiting, I never find the time to visit the old stomping grounds.

    Heck, I've not been to Chicago since early '01.

    Hey OGG, it's trying to rain in Kihei, you must be wet in Kahului.
    If you can't set a good example, at least serve as a horrible warning.

    Aloha nui! Pehea 'oe?

    Maui no ka 'oi! I've been there twice and want to go back soon. What a wonderful place! Hey, wouldn't it be a hoot if we bumped into each other somewhere? Both times we were there, we stayed in Kapalua. You'd usually find us going to places like Lahaina and Ka'anapali.

    Maybe we'll see each other somewhere!

    A hui hou!

    Yep, as well as sweet and just hot.

    The Bridge, boy if that structure could talk! I loved hanging out down there, my mom would drive by and everyone would yell out hello to her. While it had some negative connotations in terms of activities she always liked knowing where I was!

    The area (Naperville) has changed drastically. I have to go back twice a year to see my mom and it blows me away. There are about 140,000 people there and the downtown area is all restaurants. No need to go to the city as half of the places are represented in Naperville. Her neighborhood is all McMansions and you can tell where the old people hold out until the inevitable happens and their homes get sold and knocked down.

    Hank's has daily specials and that is why the beef are only certain days. I was there Friday night for a party he had and the Spam dog was really good! A hui hou!
