The trip is sort of like "One Item for BM a Day" because my wife and I always have really active and exhausting vacations. With BM looking to test our endurance for difficult 'vacations', the Kauai trip should take some pressure off come August. But ... we're actually still camping a couple days, haha! I think this HI vacation is necessary for letting go of expectations one typically has for 'vacation' come August. It'll hopefully create some additional capacity for suffering through tough conditions (heat, dust, ooontz ooontz, etc). heh
MyLarry has never been to Kauai, and I went as a child in the 60s, so that may be our next HI destination.
Note, the HI haul was from four different thrift shops. I think tourists buy too many clothes and donate what they don't want, I know I dropped off a few things last time. If you can find a fabric shop, go wild and mail it all home.
