Can anyone tell me if there is a decent store in Honolulu OTHER THAN
Getting on a plane tomorrow, and after the compulsory Woodcraft
stop-and WalMart(gotta go to wally world--absence makes the heart grow
fonder), I need to find out if there is a place that has affordable WW
I've also traveled plenty, which is precisely why I never miss Wal-Mart.
Stuff I can't imagine missing: crappy Chinese hardware & tools, edited
videos and CD's, "Ameriwood" furniture...
But then again, I don't go to Disney on vacation, either.
A trip to Walmart equated with a trip to Disneyland/world. Gimme a
I'm proud to say I *never* go to Walmart. I know, that puts me in a
tiny minority, but fortunately the place I live has numerous other

highway on an island(can't even have an intrastate hwy without a lot of
bridges), I can deal with just about anything King K's atoll has.
