I found that out the first time I was here. I plan to go to the North Shore to the beaches during the week only. It was crazy busy this past weekend (it was July 4th but still insane). Coming from West Virginia I'm hoping to find quite a few good twisty roads or at least some that are fun to drive on.

Unless it's grilled with pineapple is the only way I'll eat it.

Haha, Cy. Pushing that "Hawaiian Steak". I love Spam fried rice, Spam musubi, well pretty much Spam anything, lol.

Oh, and seriously, there are some cool drives on O'ahu, but by FAR the best is Round Top Drive(aka "Tantalus"). Go around evening and stop where You see a bunch of people parked and You will see this, or something like it:



Oops, one more thing, when You go to the North Shore, stop at Ted's Bakery(right across from Sunset Beach on the mountain(Mauka) side), best plate lunches on O'ahu.


That's it, I'm moving back to become a damn tour guide!

LOL, you should. I'm gonna start asking you where to go so look out for your PM box to be flooded.

I'll be sure to check out Round Top. That looks like an awesome view.

Haha, by all means, I'll keep an eye out. Biggest thing to remember, the whole state is amazing and beautiful and "Paradise", blah, blah, blah, but You kinda have to treat ALL of O'ahu like a major City, replete with all of the problems of a major City, including gangs and crack and strong arm robberies, carjackings, killings, etc., etc., etc. That said, as long as You are aware of Your surroundings, things will be fine. Explore the other islands, if given the chance. In particular Kaua'i and the Big Island, as the coolest places in Hawai'i are on those two islands, IMO.

You said You'll be living in Haleiwa, right? That counts as the North Shore, FYI. Some would argue the coolest part of it. Oh, and wait 'til "Winter", those nice flat lake-like beaches will unleash the beast!

::edit:: I read wrong, You'll be living near the NS, so I'm guessing Scholfield? Not too far, at all. Then again, nothing in Hawai'i is, even if it still takes a long time to get where You're going, lol.

I would push Goteborg Sausage too, but that's a Kauai thing.

Hell, I just googled it and it says the same thing.

But man, you haven't lived till you tried this stuff in fried rice. It's game changing.

Do they sell Flying Saucers on Oahu at festivals and fairs?

Yup, staying on post. We are gonna explore the other islands while we are here, I really want to go to the Big Island.

I told my husband about Round Top, he said he never heard of it before. He's an outdoor type just like me & I told him about you & how you use to live here & that I will be asking you about more places in the future. LOL.
