    What am I doing?

    I've had problems with cookies and trying to post here on Roadfly.
    I haven't been able to log on in a long while and I can't figure it out at all.
    Since the 2nd of July I've been in Kauai and now I am posting from Maui.
    Viv,
    I had poke from Safeway in Kauai for $5/lb and had another tonight in Maui. Just thought you would like to know they were both good.
    If any of you want to stay at the Marriott at Poipu beach in Kauai or Marriott Maui beach club at Kaanapali and have just won the lottery, I may be able to help you.
    Hopefully, I will still be able to post after resizing some pictures I've taken.

    Bob,
    Have fun with the tile, just make sure to keep your base line straight and square or your tile will drift around. I am full of information on construction if you need any advice. Generally speaking I have nothing better to do than to meet with BMW owners. So if you want to pick a day and a Starbucks then I should be able to do that.


    Hopefully pics to follow my friends.

    Re: What am I doing? Pics

    I picked up an underwater camera before I left and the turtle pics were at the aquarium in Maui. The plumeria was in Kauai. I am on a quest to locate a dark red plumeria to bring back with me.

    Dang!!! And I'm screwing around in the B'room???

    Geez, those are awesome pix Kev!!! Haven't been to Hawaii in 10+ years, makes me want to pack a bag an hop on a plane right now :)

    BTW, tile job came out great, with the help of a friend who installs tile all the time as part of his job. We did a diagonal pattern, which actually can help with that "drift" problem. Makes for more involved cutting, looks super now!

    But then I got the bright idea to recess the new medicine cabinet, cut a big square in the wall last night. I knew that I already had to deal with cutting out a stud and re-routing the plumbing vent, but forgot to check what else might be in the way. Well, how 'bout an electical outlet from the other side of the wall!!! Talk about stupid, good thing I know how to work on cars :)

    Enjoy your stay in Hawaii!!!
    Cheers, Bob

    Oh, glad to see you ventured out to try something

    new! We're in the east coast for a few days, enjoying the humidity. Yeah, right. It's hot, sticky, AND rainy! Actually it didn't rain today, but had thunderstorms the past 2. Arggggh.. We wish we were in Hawaii! Nice pictures.

    Bob,
    People wonder why construction workers take a lot of time to do things?
    I think you may know now.
    Hawaii is probably very different than what was 10 years ago. Prices per sq/ft are comparable with the best areas of the bay. The average price is now $500k+. Rack rates are 3-800 and everything is very crowded on Maui. Kauai was much better.
    We ended up purchasing more timeshares this trip, one on Kauai and one on Maui. Now we can "point whore" our way to free trips and things.

    I hate you Kev!!!!
    Kidding!!! :]
    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh trying to get a real job sucks!
    My baby needs an oomph in the front end suspension department too... ;[
    Damn it's baking up in Sacramento! Don't let your baby stay out in the sun too long Viv! heh heh
    The south bay's getting pretty damn hot as well.
    I'm staying in the 70's mid 80's here with a beautiful breeze at home, I really want to stay in the east bay.
    Hope all is well and when are we getting together?!

    Re: Don't you guys/gals (Bob, Viv) hate Kev?

    Well, in that case I won't post after this weekend...
    can't... I'll be in Dana Point enjoying the beaches and sand. I might buy a bucket of dirt for $50 in Pala next to the casino. You have to appreciate minerals and mines to understand that one.- gems of Pala -

    No degree, not sure if I actually have a job, able to spend 4 weeks in Hawaii and drive an E38.
    Priceless.

    Eventually I'll post some pics for your pleasure after resizing them.

    Almost any weekend I can drink Starbucks Ian.

    Must be nice for wifey to take such good care of

    you so you don't have to work like the rest of us. It's either that or you make a hell of a lot of money for the time you do work. I want a job like that!
    Thanks for sending the pictures. Very nice.

    Job? At this point I'm entertaining almost

    anything for almost any company that will shell out 40k+ :]
    40k+.... am I going too low?
    We shall see... I'm getting impatient with Google tho!
    Waiting on the call while I apply to many admin assistant positions at Cal.
    Those positions will at least hold me over for a year or so...?
    Kev, Starbucks will be sweeter if I have a job to pay for the gas for the trip to drink it with the gang =
    Ahhhhhh another loooooooooong night...
    4:30 AM, what are your kids doing? KIDDING!

    Re: Must be a nice wifey

    Sorry Ian, I am a kept man.
    She makes a load, I make 1/2 load and we are thrifty (cheap,penny pinchers whatever ;-) )
    No boats,toys, drive older cars, clothes on sale but can spend it on ourselves when need be.(springing for the mochas at the next Starbucks meet) That's how we manage to book 3 consecutive weeks in Maui Kaanapali for next year and to give one away as a wedding gift.

    a perfect candidate!

    Barista!
    Throw your degree away and become an electrician, work a few months a year and vacation the rest. Find a wifey who will support that lifestyle though.
    They start at 40k/yr as an apprentice and you can make up to ~100 with OT.
    Ian, list your preferences and maybe one of us can find you something. No gas money? If I go you can do a ride along if you are down here.

    Hey, here's something better.

    That's if you don't mind fires. I heard, and DiS can confirm this or not, that rookie firefighters (these are forestery types) start at $70K/year and only work 10 days a year.

    Yeah, so. They can also retire early with good

    benefits. I, personally, wouldn't want to be one, but a person with a degree could use it as a steping stone.

    You're gonna have to change your diet.

    No more beers for you! So, what did they tell you to do, or not to do?

    Well, first off I have to stop replacing meals

    with alcohol =P
    Kidding! I basically have to take Prilosec once a day to calm down the acids.
    No more alcohol until it completely heals and no more shmoking.
    Then there's the whole I need to have a better eating schedule as well as diet.
    Hmmmmmmm yap, that's about it!
    I might be leaving you guys tho ;[
    Might be flying out to Corea in a week or two depending on flight costs.
    Parents want me to stay under their wing for a month or two.
    Also have to see about a girl =P

    Replacing meals with alcohol & schmoking

    isn't a good thing. You're Mom will take good care of you and get you all better. Can't have a fellow Bimmer buddy be sick. That just wouldn't do.
