Is everything a 1/3 more expensive in Hawaii?

Not everything, but close enough. Grocery shopping can be a bit of a shock. It's either the prices that get you, or the hideous condition of the produce. Perishable items are usually on the high end of prices. You can negate the prices by going to Costco, but buying gas will still suck. Fast food chains really had no difference in pricing from what I could tell. Then again, I only go to the Pizza Hut in Haleiwa and Starbucks at the Foodland in Pupukea (technically Haleiwa).

I've been thinking about either going to Iceland or Hawaii.



After seeing the coverage of CCP it made me really want to go there.

Last time we went, we didn't really get to the north. We regrettably didn't rent a car and while the bus got us to many places that we wanted to go, it took too long to get anywhere on it.

I'm hoping to spend some time there next year(with a rental car).

Baldursgata? That's badass

What a dream for a classical musician. I bet that's a major brag to say they're in the EVE Online Orchestra.

GOONS! Evil...

I've been wanting to try that fermented shark. I don't know why, but I do.

What was that garbage that they rubbed on their faces? The hell?

No comment on the museum. Though I found it awesome that they included Esperanto in the translations

Definitely get a rental car next time and head up north and east. Beautiful places and far less crowded than anywhere south or west. Safer too. Every time we go there, we put about 1000 miles on the rental car. Just so much to see and cruising along with the water literally 10 feet from your car is just amazing (and I live a block from the beach). Just make sure to take off all of the rental car bar code stickers, except for one in a discreet spot, and leave your car unlocked with no valuables inside it. Sounds funny, but it's better than getting your windows busted and having to drive around in the frequent showers.

Its crazy that place is a little viking town but its completely Americanized but not in a bad way. Taco Bells, Cashiers accept USD, They speak english more than Icelandic. I figured I might as well go there or Hawaii, I like surfing though so that's probably Hawaii's main draw for me.

Of course you are. It involves an inherent risk, a guy and possibly hot water

Unless you know any locals only spots or are totally fine with surfing in the winter Hawaii is going to suck for surfing with all of the tourists and surfing instruction people out there.

The surf is insane right now. Best of the year they keep saying. At the beach where my hotel is there is chest to head high break that is 20 from shore. Mostly body boarders there. Super dangerous for the dumb drunk tourists though

I'm always there for about 2-3 weeks in the winter. I usually go from Pinballs, up to Sunset Beach, depending on the direction of the swell. I've only surfed Pipe once, and it was a pretty small day or I'd never get a chance (about 1 ft overhead, Hawaiian scale). It helps to have some heavy locs as friends so you don't wait forever on the outside of the lineup. All that took me was 3 straight years of buying kegs for house parties (one in Makaha, too)

Andrew Garfield uses a break in filming on the set of the next Spider-Man to play basketball with some local kids. In full Spider-Man costume.

That's awesome. Good on him.

Posted this in the lounge as well, but does anyone have experience going from LAX to Disneyland?
I'm heading down in a few weeks with some friends, but this is the first time I'm going by plane instead of by car. Is there a cost-effective way in getting from LAX to Disneyland? I know LAX offers the Super Shuttle that goes from LAX to all the hotels around Disneyland, but it's $16 per person. With 6 of us, that's going to be pretty pricey. I was wondering if a taxi might even be cheaper, or if there is some airporter service down there like they have up here?

We just got back. We rented a car though. The shuttle was like 40 round trip, but we have a toddler who needed a car seat so that wouldn't work.

imho

Thought the movie was pretty terrible, but I agree that Garfield was a better Spiderman. His Spiderman really reminded me of The Spectacular Spiderman.

Yah, his wise cracking was better and felt more accurate. Suffice to say, my 3 year old is in love with the Sam Raimi movies and doesn't like the new one, so I'm not sure what that means hehe.

Whenever spiderman isn't on screen (even if Parker is) he goes "Dadda, where spidahman!?"

Got my 3-day passes to the Ink-N-Iron festival in Long Beach. Ton of great bands, but I'm on cloud 9 to be able to see Rocket From The Crypt perform again. Never thought this day would come after I saw their last show in SD.

I JUST did this a couple of weeks ago with Super Shuttle. It's cheaper if you set your final destination as the Convention Center instead of Disneyland. It's a less than 10 minute walk to DL from there. I think we each paid $30 round trip which I thought was reasonable.

Is anyone here into Geocaching? I want to try it, but am slightly confused about it.

Renting a car might be cheapest, check the rates. That's what I usually do, but I usually combine the trip with going to Knotts or Magic Mountain the next day, so always need a car.

Kinda did it in the 70s (and I watch interesting segments on TV). What did you want to know?
