Yeah, if you go anywhere in Hawaii with an out-of-place Mainland attitude aka "stupid haole," you can expect to attract attention and maybe trouble.

Most people can learn how not to be a "haole" within 6 months to a year to become "malahini" and eventually "kama'aina."

Re: Give up everything and move to Maui?
Each island has it's own personality

if you're "urbanites", Maui and Oahu may apeal to you more as they are more developed and have a nightlife.

I'm on Kauai and can't even imagine living on any of the other islands. We're MUCH slower paced and rural and nightlife is watching sunset and a campfire on the beach.

Do they wear clothes there, or just walk around naked like savages?

As little as possible

Bikinis are quite acceptable attire, even in the grocery store

Re: Give up everything and move to Maui?
things to consider when you move to hawaii. the so called local people hate white people. there is constant mowing, weed wacking, tree trimming, noise pollution. roosters that never shut up. people are flakey.every other house has a dog that barks 24/7. they spray poison everywhere for weed control.herbicides, pesticides,roundup soil and air is contaminated.on maui they still burn sugar cane, so you don't want to live down wind. the ocean is pretty rough we have had too many drownings.good thing about kauai is the golf is cheap to play and you can play all year round. i would rent first until you can find a spot you are comfortable.

About the landscaping noise and roosters, that sounds mostly like Kauai, not Maui. The pesticides and Roundup, etc. are also a problem on parts of Kauai. Cane burning is a problem in North Kihei, not so much so in Wailea, nor Upcountry nor Lahaina side. There's cheap golf on all the islands.

LOL!!!! I watched that!

Trey and Matt have a place here on Kauai. SO many inside jokes that you really only get if you live here. My favorite was sinking the cruise ship - making fun of the Super Ferry protest and stand off.

Re: Give up everything and move to Maui?
A volcanic island chain that's even closer to Fukushima. Not me.

Although I would add, follow your heart, not your mind.
When you ask yourself, "move to Maui?" How does it FEEL in your heart? Feels good, then yes. Heart sinks, then no.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25716930


Fukushima is not really a problem for Hawaii. Oregon, Washington, BC and Alaska get more fallout from Fukushima than Hawaii does because Hawaii is usually well south of the path that the fallout is taking (jet stream). Hawaii did get fallout in 2011, but that is done. Only problem is if SFP4 (or one of the other SFPs) drops or permanently loses cooling, then maybe Hawaii could have a problem.

bonghit
 Quoting: Mauibrad


Don't forget, they were using sea water for cooling and dumping that back into the ocean as well. So it's not just in the air. Also the polar ice caps are melting away incredibly fast, which doesn't necessarily cause sea levels to rise, but causes the seafloor to be pushed down from extra water weight. Causing islands to sink. Plus, just look at EQ's on the ring of fire lately. Tsunami threats are there too. And once again, living around active volcanoes or fault lines just isn't my cup of tea. Just saying. Not Me. Not saying I have lots of fear, just a realist trying to survive. Although, I bet its beautiful and I would love to see Kilauea, just not live there.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25716930


Yeah, I've been reading the best research on that radiated seawater dumping and the estimates are that within a few years the contamination may be as high as 2 becquerel per (cubic meter) of water in the region of Hawaii in the years ahead. That is not bad. Shower off after being in the ocean and will be fine with that. Comparatively, a more dense measurement, you can EAT 3 becquerels per kilogram and be OK, but I DO NOT recommend eating any fish from the Northern Pacific as it is likely to be more than 3 beq/Kg. Also recommend not being in the rain when a Low pressure system is coming from up north and raining in Hawaii, it could have fallout in it.

Re: Give up everything and move to Maui?
Let's see, in Captain Cook, on about 1/2 acre we grow coffee, look out over the ocean, and live peacefully. We have ferrel chickens, turkeys, pheasants, an occasional pig and lots of sunshine. We live on the slope of the mountain in a peaceful community. We don't have A/C or heat. If we are cold we close our windows, hot, open them and turn on the fan. We drink the finest coffee in the world, have a garden, fresh bananas and oranges...... We could fish or catch one of those pesky ferrel animals. Life is good.
Would we trade it for a mainland city? No way. Follow your heart. Big Island is fine. We have a four bedroom, 3 bath house. Currently owe less than those condos you mentioned. Have a great day.tomato

Re: Give up everything and move to Maui?
I haven't been to Maui, so I couldn't tell you for sure. I live on Oahu, in a little town called Wahiawa...really trashy but very affordable lol..15 minute drive to the shore. It's very nice, very beautiful...rains almost daily (not a downpoor, just small showers here and there) so when SHTF water wont be a huge problem...But being trapped on an island is very troubling sometimes. Yes we have everything we need..fresh fruit growing everywhere, water, chickens run around here like stray cats/dogs do on the mainland.....but it is a very crowded island lol. So be sure you would be okay being trapped on a small rock in the middle of nowhere, possibly for the rest of your life, if it came down to it.

Public healthcare covers everything but dental. However, whether private or public coverage, the outer islands do not have specialists. Fortunately,insurance pays for plane and taxi fares to see specialty doctors on Oahu and Queens Medical Center is one of top trauma centers in the world. Anything serious and the patient is immediately out on a med flight to Honolulu.
