Ladies and gentlemen, I just thought you should know that in my, now educated, opinion... that Hawaii is gorgeous.

Never been, myself.

Furthest west I've been is Vancouver Island.

Happen once in a blue moon up here.....they come down from time to time and whenever they do it's usually a big deal because of how rare it is .

Last "major" one, just a little over a year ago, hit not far from where I work.

Now I'll leave all the real tornado stories to you locals.

Woo for tornadoes.

I know there may already be a thread from last season. However, I have a PS3 NHL 11 team for EASHL. We're in the Southwest Region. Team name is the Texas Pride If any of you guys have a ps3 and want to play on a CASUAL team we'd love to have ya.

Agree, but only in certain parts. I was on the big island and it's like you don't escape the everyday city life. Who wants to be in a place that great and be overrun by rush hour traffic in the middle of the concrete jungle? When you escape Honolulu and hit the north shore and see the massive waves, whales fully breached and the surfers, I agree very cool. The north eastern, more wild, mountainous and treed corner is also spectacular. Would like to see a few other islands, though doubt I go back.

Vofty is back by popular demand to ease the referencing troubles that and to make sure I don't get confused with someone on the short bus.

Can you explain what the old one meant? Google just turns up your posts.

The username changes are coming fast and furious here. Winning Aces and Jon Casey are histoire.

I think you might be thinking of Oahu. Although there is the occasional traffic jam on the big island (I was in Hilo for most of my trip, worst planned city ever), it's not usually too bad. And you don't have to go very far at all for tons of countryside. It was an awesome trip though, glad I'm back home. You start to miss your bed after a month of traveling, even if you are in one of the most scenic places in all of North America.

Anyone have an Ipad? Any thoughts on the thing? I'm thinking of doing the impulse buy tomorrow.

Had to make the name change as a good omen to the new Star tender. Love goaltending, and hoping that apple can keep the medical staff away from our newest beloved keeper of the twine.

This will not be the last we've heard from Casey.

Yeah I think it was Oahu. You're right, you can escape the city, but you have to drive a fair distance from Honolulu to do so. It definitely had it's upside including the weather (Canadian winter escape) and the olive skin lasses, but I too was ready to jet when the trip came to an end.

lol...well the story of the name isn't probably near as interesting as the name itself. I used to play online spades and had a ton of names I played under and I got on this barnyard theme once and came up with the chicken one and also theCOWisPOOPING (but I thought I would get in trouble with that one), there may have been a pig one but I don't remember what it was. I was looking for a gender neutral name and chicken fit the bill pretty well so I went with it.
