Away for 11 days
I'm going to be traveling with Alice, leaving Boston Friday morning and getting back Monday afternoon January 7th. Two days of travel, 4 days Oahu, 5 days on the Big Island.
[ Would've been 2 and 7 by my original intent, except that all the islands except Oahu ran out of rental cars for some of those days by the time I tried to reserve a few weeks ago. It was quite a challenge getting the car I did get, which might've been the last one available on the Big Island before Jan 2nd. ]
