22 SEP 2017 - Well this caused a snort while enjoying coffee early Saturday morning. Happened right here in the Bay Area, just before midnight (I'm sure Safeway employees love having to stay open 24 hours) and the guy had already been on parole. Drugs and/or alcohol had to be involved.

01 SEP 2017 - WHY I DON'T LOVE HAWAII - This was a hard one. I'm not sure, but even before going to Maui I just felt this urge to not like Hawaii. I don't know if it was because I didn't want to be disappointed if it wasn't everything it was built up to be, or that it's a liberal hippie haven, or just I'm trying to be different from the crowd.

Even after going there I still had this feeling that Hawaii was not the spectacular place everyone claims it to be.

The hotel we stayed at was okay, a little aged as far as 4-star hotels go, but still a nice place. It wasn't overly crowded, which is another thing that turns me off. The weather was pretty oppresive, except for the last few days we were there - and usually I'm drawn to warm weather, but not this time.

I was a little puzzled about this, so I did a web search for "I hate Hawaii" and found similar opinions, but this was mostly from people that lived there for several years, not tourists like myself.

The culture isn't my favorite - I enjoy going to the beach but it's not something I want to do every day. I don't surf. I'm not into native culture such as palm decorations, grass skirts, coconut trees, hula dances and such.

Sorry - even now I'm having trouble putting it into words. For some reason, Hawaii isn't magical for me.
