    Default Hawaii, Here I Come!!

    I just booked a flight to Hawaii! I haven't visited in four years and I can't wait to see my best friend and have her daughter call me "Auntie". She's on Oahu and we'll probably make an inter-island trip to Kauai. Yay! I plan on playing as many ukuleles as possible. (And more than likely, my UAS will kick in and I'll buy another. Thus far, I have Kamaka, Pohaku, Martin, and a Flea [all concerts]...what else do I "need"?!

    Does MGM have an actual store?

    Also, does anyone want to jam? I haven't played with another ukulist...well, EVER. Living in Louisiana kind of secludes me. Everything I've learned has been self-taught and thanks to UU staff + Aldrine. I'll be on Oahu Aug 5 - 21 and making a few days trip to Kauai somewhere in there. Let me know if you're up for it!!

    Other things I'm looking forward to: L&L Chicken Katsu, Ono on Kapahulu, shave ice, papayas, and longboarding!!!!!!

    How many things, how many strings does it take to make up a life? Four, apparently.

    Be SURE to do a Koaloha Factory TOUR!! check out my video on my youtube page.. youtube.com/dominicfoundthemoon and the Koaloha website.. they will show you around.. play a song or two for you.. it is a small shop.. but just made amazing by the family of people.. one of the best things about my trip to hawaii.. and it was FREE!! GREAT PEOPLE! a MUST DO!

    and when you go looking for the factory.. don't get lost.. its kind of hidden back in this industrial looking cove.. with a small door..

    Not as of late last year...I called him when I was in Kaneohe between Christmas and New Year and he said he only did business over the internet.

    Oh, and make sure you check out Shimazu in Honolulu (not far from the airport) for shave ice!

    Hey! Aloha to you...I leave for Hawaii tomorrow. I'm so excited. I'm going to tour the Kanile'a factory in Oahu, and I already mapped out the stores I can't wait to hit (Aloha Ukulele, Bob's Ukulele, Easy's Music Center, Island Guitars and Ukulele Puapua on Oahu, and Larry's and Scotty's in Kauai).

    I wish I could succumb to UAS but I think I'll have to stick to SAS (string acquisition syndrome) while I'm there.

    What do you need? How about a tenor while you are there?

    I think I read Musicguymic will set up an appointment with you out by him in Kaneohe, but he doesn't have a retail store.

    Have a great time!

    Whenever I have a crappy day at work I come home and tell my wife that I'm going to quit my job and move us to Hawaii... and that's three out of five days, usually

    She promised me that we'd go ASAP, probably next summer (with the actual wedding ceremony in August and my gainful employment not so gainful since my contract is up after this year, this summer's only trip will be our honeymoon to Nantucket).

    I'm going to try to save up my UAS money to get a nice uke from an actual uke shop when I go... and enjoy being able to say "ookoolaylee" instead of "youkoolaylee" and not have to repeat myself and explain why I said it funny.

    Gotta love the Bible Belt.

    That was totally unrelated.... but oh well. I'm still trying to graduate from PW Padawan to PW whatever comes after padawan...

    To the OP -- have a great time in Hawaii. Terrific place and I also would love to live there.

    Question: How will you be able to go to all those ukulele places and not get UAS?
