Fun Facts About Hawaii

I just felt like there was some important knowledge I should share:

1.  Hawaii does not have I-15.  (I recognize it has its own freeways and highways that have lots of traffic, but I will trade the road to Hana for I-15 any day.  The road to Hana ends at Hana.  I-15 ends at... well, technically, San Diego.  But for me on a daily basis it ends at work.)

2.  Hawaii has beautiful tropical beaches.  (It turns out that this is a commodity that Utah is greatly lacking in.)

3.  One week from this moment I will be on a plane that will land in Hawaii.

I made the following picture to commemorate the joy.  I drew it on a coworker's whiteboard when he was one week from leaving for Hawaii.  But now it applies to me.  You may notice it doesn't look like a whiteboard.  The picture didn't have a lot of contrast so I helped it out in photoshop.
The best art comes with labels for the ambiguous parts

4.  Hawaii has delicious fresh fruits of many shapes and sizes.

5.  Hawaii has Ted's Bakery
The macadamia nut cream pie is one of life's greatest joys.

6.  Did I mention I'll be in Hawaii super soon?

7.   Hawaii has beautiful scenery

8.  Hawaii has Haleakala
This image is totally stolen from  but I'm really excited to stand on top of Haleakala (a really big mountain/volcano) and watch the sunrise
9.  Ya, so I'm totally going to Hawaii.

10.  Hawaii has super sweet snorkeling
If I look this good in snorkeling gear in my kitchen, imagine how good I look in the ocean.

I hope that these fun facts have helped to educate you.  I will probably have more things to share about Hawaii once I'm there.  (I don't know if I mentioned I'm going to Hawaii soon.)


  1. Do you think pies from Ted's bakery would make it back on the plane? Yum! Have such a good trip!

    1. I'm not sure. I think I'll carry them home in my belly. That's probably the safest place.

  2. I bought my snorkeling gear today! I am so ready!!!
    (well-except for all the stuff I have to get done first!)

  3. Wait, are you going to Hawaii? I'm confused. Why would you go to hawaii without me? I just don't get it. Will you explain it to me?

    1. Jared, I was gonna invite you but I heard you were in a fight with Hawaii.

  4. Hawaii has a couple interstate highways, even though they don't go inter-state...heck, they're not even really intra-state. More like intra-island. If you call them interstate, you get federal funding or something dumb like that.

  5. Why have I never heard of a macadamia nut cream pie before today?!

    1. I don't know. But I can assure you, it's something you want to know about.
