On Thursday, October 21, 2004, we flew to Honolulu to visit our son John, a programmer for Konami Software. We took John's surfboard (wrapped in bubble wrap) in the back of our pickup to the airport and shipped it as excess baggage to Honolulu. We left SLC at 1:10 p.m. and arrived in Honolulu at 6:10 p.m., after a brief stop in Los Angeles. We stayed at the Waikiki Gateway Hotel.
