    Default Aloha From NYC

    Aloha All!
    My wife and I will be retiring to the Big Island in about a month. This will be a sea change for us, and one we are looking forward to. We are both avid scuba divers, and plan on spending a lot of time underwater.
    This board seems not very BI focussed, if anyone knows of another BI or West side of BI group holler at me.

    Sounds like things are going well! The first Big Island-focused forum I can think of is KonaWeb. I know there's a lot of discussion at TripAdvisor as well. When you're not diving, what else are you up to?

    Several of us are either from the Big Island or went to school on the Big Island, so please do share whatever you're up to. You'll make at least a few of us misty with nostalgia.



    PS: Here are my top three pieces of advice for Big Island visitors or newbies: (1) Corned beef hash at Ken's House of Pancakes, (2) Roast pork loco moco at Blaine's Drive In, and (3) Cafe 100 kind of sucks.

    Oh Chu. If only you could have seen what I've seen, with your eyes.
