Here is a curated set of articles related to moving to Hawaii. Many people want to make the move from the mainland USA, and around the globe, to live in Hawaii for some amount of time. Most don’t stay all that long – a year average maybe. If you read this collection of articles about moving to Hawaii you will have a very good idea (from my perspective anyway!) about what the move will entail and whether or not you’ll last longer than a year.

    Good day Vern,

    I love this website. So much great info. I live in South Africa and I am in need of a big change. How do I go about it if I want to move to Hawaii. Is it a difficult task and is it possible? Just some simple pointers to start with would be great.

    My husband and I just moved to Kapolei – Honolulu was #1 on our wishlist of Coast Guard stations before he was even sworn in at the end of March. I just stumbled on your book searching the Kindle store after he called from boot camp with his orders. I learned a lot from it and am still referencing it. We could build an entirely new blog site aimed at military members in or moving to Hawaii. There is plenty of literature out there and people I’ve connected with for advice but I can’t tell you how amazing it would be to have similar material from a first-person POV about military life here and on other islands – guides, maps, and descriptions of bases and MWR stuff, exchanges, deals and discounts, etiquette, PCS-ing…the list could go on and on. I think having a parallel resource for service members and their families would be invaluable, especially if you provided the same straight talk as you have in your book!

      I think you’re right on with that Alexandra. I wish back in 1984 when I got there in the Air Force at Hickam AFB, there would have been something – a booklet about moving to the islands in the military. Today there must be some bloggers that have taken it online and tell all about military moves to Oahu. I haven’t searched recently, but I’m sure there must be some decent sites out there on the topic. If not, you should definitely get one started! Glad you liked my book! Good luck in Hawaii… Aloha, Vern
