Hawaii Kings Tour: Fore! [Video]

Just another day in paradise, or rather, Hawaii.

I am currently on a 13-day group tour with about three dozen 100.5 The River listeners, trekking across Hawaii with YMT Vacations. We are staying on Maui.

On Thursday, we hit the links at Royal Kāʻanapali Golf Club. I golfed a round with Bob and Jane Czerew, Char and Skip Tomkins and Tom Brechtimg.

Then, we had a wonderful dinner and show at the Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel , where we're staying in Kāʻanapali.

Today, we head for the Big Island, Hawai'i, and Kona.

Mackinac Island Opening for Historic Season Including War of 1812 Battle Bicentennial [Video]

While the Great Lakes still have some ice on them, Mackinac Island is about ready to come alive.
