The Road to Hawaii – FedeEx doesn’t absolutely, positively get it there overnight

The Road to Hawaii, or how we sold (almost) everything, quit our jobs and moved to Oahu, as told by one family who is experiencing it.

So, last Friday, while packing, cleaning, mailing and signing papers to rid ourselves of Michigan (in a nice way), we picked up the mail.  Aaron and Holli had applied for a credit card to help them rent a car, etc.  It arrived Friday.  Problem – they were on a plane headed toward Honolulu.

We trekked to the nearest FedEx office and paid way too much money to have the card overnighted to a Honolulu FedEx office.  Saturday delivery guaranteed.  Guess what?  They mishandled the shipment and it won’t be there until today, Monday.  Meanwhile, Aaron and Holli’s attempts to find an apartment and/or job are hindered while they’re shackled to a bus schedule.

Way to (not) go, FedEx!

In unrelated news, Luke and I are in Colorado, making good time.  We all have new phone numbers with the coveted 808 Hawaii area code.  Major fights have been avoided, but there have been a few skirmishes.  The concept of “free wi-fi” is a loose one.  Stay hydrated.
