March 26, 2017 (day 4)
I picked up a rental car today and made it to a few slightly more out of the way places. Not all were off the beaten path since it was Sunday and the paths to the beaches were definitely getting beaten.

March 25, 2017 (day 3)
I took my first ride on The Bus and did a little walking. I climbed a tower, checked out a brewery, visited an armadillo, and watched a little hula.

March 24, 2017 (day 2)
I spent some time at a memorial I've wanted to see most of my life and also got to see and try some things I've only read about recently.

March 23, 2017 (day 1)
More than half of my twenty-two hour day was spent inside an airplane but I ended up in Honolulu and that makes it OK.

Prelude - March 5, 2017
A few years ago I started chipping away at the list of states I had not visited and in 2016 reduced the list to just one. The one remaining state is Hawaii and plans are in place to scratch it off in 2017. For weeks I've contracted and expanded the scale of the trip and I've mentally shuffled dates and itineraries but the shuffling and flip-flopping have ended and I now have a plan. I'll be flying out on March 23 and back on April 10. In between I'll spend six nights each on Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii (a.k.a. The Big Island). I'll be renting a car for a couple of days on each island so there will be some road tripping involved but flying, both to and between the islands, will be the primary mode of transportation. I don't mind flying but am not a fan of the lines and hassles of airports. I am very much dreading that part of the trip but it can't be helped. All Fifty Club, I'm on the way.
