Since I was asked in another thread, I figured I would post this now. It was one year ago on 05-28-19 that I applied for my job to transfer to Hawaii.

I accepted the job on 07-05-19 and moved to Hawaii on 07-29-19. So I am closing in a year on Hawaii. I have been here 10 months and my wife arrived one month later so she has been here 9 months.

Before moving here, we had been coming to the islands over ten years during different months. June was the last month that I had never been here during. So I have been on the islands during every month of the year now. My wife still hasn’t been here during July so she will hit that milestone next month. I arrived last July and the year before that I went to Molokai to look for condos and my wife couldn’t make both of those trips because of work and moving reasons.

We had a Molokai trip set up for the first two weeks of May which we have been vacationing during for the last few years since it falls during Mothers Day and my wife’s birthday. Well the virus and the quarantine had different plans.

Now, today we found out that the Hawaii Inter-island quarantine restriction will be lifted June 16th. So we are planning a Molokai trip starting June 27th and returning July 12th. This works nice since my birthday is the 28th and we will be there over the 4th of July. So we will see if we can see some fireworks being set off on Maui.

I will have a trip thread but we will be putting in a lot of Lanai time. :) I received an email from WaveCrest where our condo is and the pool and cabana is opening this weekend with restricted hours and only allowing a certain number in at a time. There will be staff there monitoring it. so that should be fine as I know that the resort will be far from full.

I also see that Hiro’s restaurant is opening for dine in starting June 19th. I am hoping the bugs, if any will be worked out at the restaurants and the airport by the 27th so we will see.

I agree with @Luanne - what a difference! A year ago you were planning to just retire to Molokai, and next thing you knew, you're living on Oahu, and really making close-up plans for your retirement. The time has flown, most certainly. Congratulations to you both!

Dave

We moved to Oahu shortly before you. We hit 1 year yesterday. The earliest we could arrive was June 1; I arrived June 1 :) and my DW and DD joined me later in the month.
Fastest year of my life! I don't know if it's because I'm older, having fun, or both.

Congratulations to your family. Mine was pretty chaotic because we really didn’t plan on a job opening and wasn’t really looking but within 2 months I had moved.

I have to wait to really enjoy and retire but my wife is loving being retired in Hawaii.

Are you and your wife working?
