the biontech people convinced me that variants are not scary or a real threat. and since they basically are going to cure cancer and MS and most other diseases I trust them.

it's a thing! and it's a thing I've never seen anywhere but Michigan!

And I never actually went to Mackinac, but the Lake Michigan coast is absolutely beautiful in the summer and fall.

Variants are the issue with not meeting herd immunity.  Large groups of unchipped dumb dumbs allow a large opportunity for future mutations over time and one of those little fucks might be better than my chip.

Starting to plan my Kauai trip and looking for recommendations. Staying at the Grand Hyatt and honestly I don't give a crap if I just sit there all day every day and chill, but I figure I should prob do a couple of things for the kids. Any tips? I've never been to Hawaii. Someone said I should rent a Jeep and drive around??? Not sure about this as I don't just want to roam around in a car all day. We are not in to hiking so maybe just a trip to a cool beach town for some non resort beach time and good food? Maybe a morning boat trip or something? As you can tell, I have no idea so I'll take about any recommendation or tips for those that have been, especially food recommendations. Thanks

How old are the kids? Great things I can vouch for as being great:

- https://www.napali.com/. We've done the snorkel sail and dinner sail on different trips. You'll get an assload of dolphins riding your bow on the morning one and it's pretty incredible. Dinner sail is super chill and views are incred. Despite the photos kids would definitely enjoy it too. The view of the Napali coast from these sails are probably the coolest scenic views on the planet.

- Kalalau trail on the north side. Start the hike and get as far as the beach unless your kids are older and hardcore.

- Near that trail head is my favorite beach and beach town on Kauai, Hanalei. It's the absolute longest drive you can make from your hotel but the island is tiny and it's a very chill and scenic drive. We'd usually drive up here twice per week we'd stay and spend the day either hiking at Kalalau or hanging out on the beach and in Hanalei.

- https://www.theshopsatkukuiula.com/. Cool shopping area near the Hyatt with a lot of good food and a nice little grocery/prepared food store we stopped at for coffee and to get food for the day each morning. They'd have live bands and stuff in the evenings sometimes. Merriman's is here and is good but not the same experience as the Maui location because it's not on the water.

I'll think of more stuff later

Oh man, this is great. keep it coming. Kids are 8-9. This brings up another question. Should I rent a car? Can I get one for like the day? I didn't really consider it before since we were mainly resorting it and only there for 5 days. Hanalei is exactly something I would be down for. I love little beach towns. Hitting the beach and then going into town for food and drinks is my jam. I would love to do this a day or 2. Thanks again.
What SD said but also my favorite beach is Polihale on the west side. It's kinda remote (fun drive in the jeep!) but like you'll probably have it basically to yourself and it's beautiful. Good body surfing oppo.

And obvs take the kids to get puka dogs at some point. It's in Poipu v close to the Grand Hyatt

A lot of these words seem like a trick.

Hey SF, grab me a jar of Aunty Lilikoi’s passion fruit wasabi mustard while you’re there.  Thanks.
