    How current is your website? I don’t see dates. Wondering if you’ve learned more about options to cargo for getting a dog from the mainland to Oahu.

    • There are plenty of airlines that will ship your dog to Hawaii. Some people were considering chartering a plane to fly their animals over, and that was over a year ago. Not sure how they got along with that. There are public and private options.

    Hi Vern,
    Your site is really helpful, thanks! I am thinking of moving to Kauai in June and I am researching the place. I just wondered if it is possible for an online college student who has about $11,500 in savings could find a full time job in Kauai and could make it without starving? I am also wondering what your thoughts on finding roommates are? I haven’t heard of any roommate scams but I just want to make sure I don’t find myself in that situation. Any tips or comments would be appreciated.


  • Hi, Vern,

    Came across your blog today…
    Just wanted to say that I admire you for writing out your life’s bio – My life has been different, too…maybe not quite as interesting as yours, though.

    I, too, am in the process of rebuilding and am planning to move to Maui, in time…been there 9 times and love it…never been to another island, and wouldn’t mind if I never leave there once I move…

    Good luck to you, in finding your way back ~

    I’ll read more on here, in time.
    Thanks for sharing, and best wishes,

  • I’ll try! In your Dashboard go to Presentation tab and there will be a “Widgets” tab. Click it and drag and drop widgets to your sidebars.

    To change the banner simply ftp a photo that is 1000 pixels by 140 into the directory at:


    Of course replacing the domain with your own.

    Hope that helps!

  • vern, i don’t know if you would help me or not, i found your blog and it is the same template i have, only i use the split sidebars. i have not figured out how to change the banner or put widgets on the sidebars. would you mind too much telling me?
