IPS Biennial Pretour Maui!

Recommended Posts

Cindy Adair

Registration is now open for the small group travel to Maui prior to the main Biennial! 


Don’t wait to decide because the group size is limited to just 25 attendees. Correction:28.

The price includes the cost of the flight (Maui to Oahu) to join the larger Biennial group.

I know some of us are arriving into LAX the night before the pretour and staying over at one of the many hotels with free shuttles.

It could be fun to pick the same LAX hotel, so private message me if you are interested, as I have not made that hotel reservation yet.

Then my roommate and I will catch a nonstop flight directly into Maui the next morning.
 

On the return trip from the Big Island I found an option to (hopefully) sleep on the plane and end up back in PR the next day without a return hotel stay. 
 

I found that flying into LAX/HI midweek instead of closer to the weekend for the start of the regular Biennial was much cheaper, so something to consider.

I am certainly no travel agent, but have learned that time spent exploring (beyond Google Flights options) can be money saving. So if you see flight price sticker shock try another airline/route.

I also decided life is short and I have never been to Maui, much less the gardens to see and friendships to make and reconnect so now is the time. 

I only regret the travel I did not take (and the plants I did not buy). 

Hope to see you there!

Please add any Maui photos (whether of palms or not) as we have free time to plan too.

I have only been to the Maui airport for a connecting flight,  but I really like the modern sculpture in the interior courtyard,  "Maui releasing the Sun". 

  No more Hawaii trips for me, have a great time !

Thanks Darold.

Wish you could join us, but I will definitely look out for the sculpture and try to grab a photo to post!

Hi Cindy,

My sister in law just booked a flight to Maui from California because she said that there was a flight sale.  I checked the web and it looks like the fares between Hawaii and California are at half the usual price.  California is a great hub.  Here is Hawaiian Airlines Sale $198 round trip from LAX to Kahului, others leave from San Francsico, San Jose, Ontario, Long Beach, and San Diego.  It's limited time offer but the biennial falls within the time period!

 

The pre-tour has lunch at my place, we have a lychee orchard that is going off right now.  Nothing like my friend Felix's family has near Puerto Vallarta.  Miss you!!

Wow doesn’t begin to cover it Mary!
This tree rarely fruits in western PR apparently. 

And your flight sale information might help inspire someone to sign up now.

Thanks!

Oops, and I forgot to mention the limit on the Maui Pre-tour is 28.

You will see some nice palms at Jerry Welch's garden.  We were lucky to see his Lemurophoenix just after it's leaf fell off.  I didn't doctor this photo.

      These coconuts were not planted by me — they were already here more than 9 years ago. I didn’t even know because they were obscured by weeds!  Over the years they have slowly grown and have begun to be included in the garden as it has expanded. 
      One thing I had not figured on was the size and weight of the fronds! Wow! The frond below, from Cocos #1, which I cut in two to manage, is 23 ft. In length.

      Photos of Cocos #2, same size. Note the brown frond at my shoulder, and the same frond (lowest) pointing to the right in the photo frame. Big palm taking up lots of space at this age. It was difficult to capture the entire palm in the camera frame in the surrounding vegetation  
      They seem to grow very slowly here. Elevation is about 800 ft. above the Pacific shore. 
      How fast do your Cocos grow?
