nice pick ups! I've yet to get my first citizens diver. I think they are good choice for divers This is true -- a friend of mine from Burlington, Massachusetts said he went to Maui for three weeks just to go diving and it was the most expensive trip he took
You are right. When people come here and expect to relax a little and kick back a little, they find out this place is a .......
" Pocket Book Killer ".
I for one can not see why people have to be hit so hard just to have some relaxation and fun. We were diving a while back, and some Tourist were swimming and they had about (8) kids with them and I asked the guy,I said ..... You will have a big bill when you go home heh ?
He tells me we just got here and tried to get a large van to rent and it was so highly priced we decided just to go to the beach and walk around to save money.
I said no, that is not a vacation, I got a lot of time to do things, I am retired now...... " Let do it for the Kids and the Women ".
We had coffee and talk a little and then I said ............ we going for it.
He got all worried out about the whole thing, I said no problem you can trust me. I drove one van and my friend drove the other, we had time.
I got a friend to lend me ... ( Two Big Vans ) and I took them all over and all he and I did was do the gas for them. He paid some and I helped him out with some of it. I spent Four days touring them all over the place and his wife was so happy she could not stop crying all over me, everyday she did that, but they had a lot of fun. It was their first real vacation in ..... 22 years the two of them. They had Grand Kids all over about eight of them, but they had a lot of fun. He wanted to repay me and told me to give him my address but I said ( No Sir). I enjoyed doing it for him and the wife and his son and Daughter in Law and the kids.
Hawaii is defiantly a Tourist Trap like many places. I can not do it for everyone, but when I see a guy sad because he tried to give his family a good time, I want them to get a lot of it. He was a very nice fellow and also a Minister at that from Chicago some place.
My friends gave them a good time and treated them great and they were very happy. I even took them to a " Polynesian Dinner Show " ,
one night for free, and they had what is called here a ...... " Luau ", Fire knife dancers , Hula dancers, and a lot of food. My friend owns the .... " Entertainment Show Case Program ". ( " They flipped out ". )
Even took the women out on surf boards and they enjoyed it.
Took movies of them and put it all on DVD's for them to take back home.
