Travel between Alaska and Hawaii?

  1. I just got a really good idea this morning: has anyone heard of someone spending summers in Alaska, then traveling to Hawaii for the winter? This seems like it could be an awesome setup for a few years...!

    Sounds pretty much like my own personal plan....

    I hate snow but my wife hates severe heat, so southern states in winter and northern states in the summer...that's the plan...hopefully it will work for the both of us!!!

    Nrlevart:
    You sound like someone I need to talk to...I'm still a student (graduate BSN Dec 05 - fingers crossed). But once I graduate would love to do some island hopping.

    I lived in St. Croix in 92 for a couple of years...hubby worked for Hess there. We loved the island and the water. When I was there the hospital was still in the module buildings...since then heard they rebuilt the old hospital. I know it was pretty bad back then...hubby had to go there for a diving accident. What was scary was I knew more about the bends then the dr there and I had no medical knowledge back then. lol My friend was a nurse there and she said there was always a shortage of supplies.

    Now my dream is to move to Hawaii..figure I'll probably have to go in as a travel nurse and then work on trying to become permanent there.

    Any pointers/tips from your knowledge of traveling in Hawaii, etc?
