Welcome to the forum...you'll get lots of good info here.
Sorry no kids but I did live on Kauai
for about 6 years...loved every minute of it!!...and your leaving why? You do realize this is going to be like sailing to Polahali without a plant in sight for like...a million miles?
Just kidding, hope you have a nice sail over. You're probably leaving from Nawiliwili yes? Are you from Lihue side or farther around? Hope to see you down Mexico way as we're leaving later this summer.
