Don't hate me because I'm ...


... going to Hawaii one month from today.

And before you say, "Aha! So that's why he can't save money!" you should know that this is a most-expenses-paid trip. That's a long story, for another time.

I'll be on Maui for a week. I've been there once before, about a year and a half ago. I had a wonderful time, but I was prepared to write it off as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I never expected to get the opportunity to go again, and so soon after the last time.

I'll be there for Thanksgiving, which should be interesting. I want to see if they do Thanksgiving differently in Hawaii, or if it's just turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce like everywhere else.

I'm planning to do more land-based activites this time, even though that means some days I'll be doing things separately from my family. They prefer water-based fun. It's a good plan for all of us. Last year I got seriously seasick riding on a boat that took us to a snorkeling site. It didn't ruin the whole trip, but it did ruin the whole day, at least for me. I'm not going to waste any days this time.

One day I'm going to bicycle 38 miles down the side of a volcano. That sounds like a long distance, and it is, but it's downhill all the way. I'm told by people who've done it before that there's only about 400 yards of actual pedaling the whole route. The rest of the time you keep your hands on the reinforced, industrial-strength brakes. And stop to soak in the scenery.

I'd better get started packing now. Not because I'm taking so much stuff but because I'm a lazy packer. I hate packing. Don't know why.

Thank you, ladies. I'll be back here to tell everyone all about it. Unless I win the lottery between now and November 20. If that happens, I'm pretty my family and I won't be coming back.
