Can’t wait!MarkParticipant04/23/2021 at 4:17 amPost count: 9
Call it an unvacation, a soft move, a toe dip, call it what you will, but we are moving to Hawaii on June 1st and we have no intention of ever leaving. We do have an exit strategy in case things go sideways, but that’s plan B and we hope we never have to implement it.
We are entirely focused on Plan A!MarkParticipant03/26/2021 at 10:26 amPost count: 9in reply to: Introduce yourself! #14996
Some days I think, man, we’re doing really well financially, we’ve totally got this. Other days I think, “What the hell are we thinking??” It’s scary, but we’re dedicated! We’re gonna make it happen, and so will you!MarkParticipant03/26/2021 at 10:23 amPost count: 9in reply to: Introduce yourself! #14995

Hi Kelly! I love your story. Never been to Okinawa (but would love to visit), but I lived in Kyoto and went to school in Osaka for 6 months back in my college days. Love the Japanese culture and looking forward to seeing its influences again in Hawaii. And so cool that you and your husband are in animation! Do you work for a company we might have heard of? 😉 I used to dream of getting into the film industry, but my life took a different direction. Anyways, aloha!MarkParticipant03/16/2021 at 12:33 pmPost count: 9in reply to: Introduce yourself! #14940
Aloha Michael! Nice to meet you. So cool you’re moving back home! I’ve started saying we’re going home as well, even though we have never lived there. Because I’ve decided Hawaii WILL be my home, and once I’ve made a decision I don’t like to change it. 😊MarkParticipant03/16/2021 at 10:22 amPost count: 9in reply to: Introduce yourself! #14938
Aloha everyone! My wife Lisa and I are taking this class together.
6 years ago we installed an app on our phone counting down the days to June 1st, 2021, the day we would move to the beach. Amazingly, incredibly, somehow we are hitting that target dead square in the center. We will be there in 77 days!
Almost exactly 6 years ago on one of the first cool days of spring in Oklahoma, we were sitting in a Buffalo Wild Wings patio enjoying a couple of cold ones when we concocted our crazy scheme. We had been married less than a year and I had just started a new job after being out of work for a year and a half. We were dead broke. But why not? Let’s move to the beach, huzzah!
Ever since then we have prospered and we have worked every day to make this dream happen. We still don’t know if we can make it financially, so this is a soft move for now. But we’re going to do our darndest to make this a forever move!
I want to thank Peter for all his time in putting together his YouTube videos, the real estate show, and this islander cohort program. We think it’s a great thing, and are looking forward to getting involved and meeting you all!
