Hawaii has been on my "places to go to list" for several years now (I think since Phish rumored a NYE show there). With enough FF miles for a free flight and Peggy's willingness to travel anywhere, we were off for just over a week. After some research and reading, the plan was to hit the Big Island and Kauai while packing in as much adventure and sites as we could handle; the travel agent took care of the rest of the details. Getting there proved to be the most difficult. We had airplane problems, flight delays, evacuated airports, and when we finally got to Kona, (6hrs later than scheduled,) our one bag of luggage wasn't there! We ended up having to drive back to the airport the next evening to look for it ourselves.
