Our crew was not all youthful that day (the elders were feeling the altitude) or we would have taken a long walk into the crater beyond the crowds.
    Not necessarily a family outing, but for the more adventuresome trippers, I highly recommend going to haleakala during the full moon and spending the sunset, night, and sunrise at the glass octagon lookout. The people that show up are trippy mofos and there's going to be music and all kinds of shit going on. We were tripping balls and went over to the university of hawaii's observatory and shot laser light beams at the moon with them. In the sunrise and sunset, you can almost see haleakala's shadow projecting through space and onto the moon. My friends and I hiked out to the ocean near hana, at huialoha church, over the course of two days, staying at the cabin along the trail. Fuuuuck, you'll know you just hiked downhill for 10K when you hit the ocean.

    While at Costco, buy several bottles of koloa dark rum. Drink on the rocks. Island candy in a bottle, made in Kauai

    That sounds like fun! One of the clubs in LahainaTown does one of those headphone raves during the full moon.

    You can still drive up to the crater for sunset. No full moon for a week or two anyway.

    Disregard the previous advice about drinking heavily before flight. You have plenty of time to get sober

    Demand a free pass to the united lounge in SFO for the delays. SFO is a hell hole.

    Hell yes I asked and they basically told me to call corporate. They gave us $40 in food vouchers and told us we’re lucky to have seats at all....Its pandemonium at the gate right now, with 20+ people being told they are SOL for this flight.... Could progress to riots, who knows

    Timely bump. Just booked a week on Maui in early February. Besides the fact that it will dump in the Wasatch, am I an idiot to rent a camper van for the whole trip? Looks like there are decent legal camping options for ~$20-30 per night and we like to car camp quite a bit. Looking at renting from Mauivanlife.com anyone have first hand experience?

    since this thread is here on the front page and we're looking at Hawaii in November...

    Looking for a week trip, family friendly, my kiddo is 8, so she's big enough to do some adventuring, but small enough that cliff jumping or surfing are not her speed, and a sweet mellow beach or even a swimming pool will keep her happy for hours.

    We also have to keep to a fairly low budget, so we can't shell out money left and right for every fun thing or great restaurant, we have to choose wisely. Probably looking for an airbnb so we can have a kitchen (see fairly low budget statement).

    Suggestion for island and/or town?
