If this posting’s formatting looks a little weird it’s because I’m being frugal by posting from my cell phone. In a pricing oddity, Internet access for the day is about the cost tennis lessons for the week. You’d think Hawaii is a foreign country at $10 a day.
To explain the tennis lessons, you have to understand that I’m staying at the Hale Koa, which is a non-profit hotel for the military. Room rates are about a $100 a night. It’s one of the best deals the military offers in my opinion.
I believe we are doing a good job staying on the budgetm but it’s hard to say. We are here with friends and different people pick up the tab each night. At the end of the trip, we’ll use a spreadsheet to reconcile the accounts. In the meantime, I’m keeping a mental tally – not the best method, but I’m on vacation and, of course, lazy.
