You may have noticed the relatively light posting the past 2 weeks while my family and I have been making up for our Vitamin D deficiencies in sunny Kauai and Maui.
Traveling for Orthodox Jews is nothing like it is for anybody else due to our kosher dietary restrictions. That means bringing our own food or making our own prior arrangements for food when we travel to anywhere where there isn’t a large Orthodox Jewish population.
Over on the DansDeals Forums I got a private message from a member asking if we wanted to split the cost of a large toaster oven and I happily agreed. Having a toaster oven has proven invaluable on the trip. He left Kauai 2 days before I arrived but he left it at the front desk of the Grand Hyatt and they had it for me at checkin.
I’ve gotten to meet several couples on this trip who flew here in first class on sub-$100 airfares who nabbed them thanks to following @DansDeals on Twitter.
At any rate I posted yesterday on DDF asking if anyone wanted the oven. A couple staying at the Westin in West Maui just came to pick it up from us at the Andaz in South Maui. They also flew in first class for under $100 thanks to the DansDeals notification text 😀
Irony of the story? The wife works for Eli Webster, the man who prodded me into making a forums and who built them from scratch!
They leave paradise on Sunday. Want to pick the oven up from them and continue the chain? Post a comment with your email address and we’ll see how long this lasts 😀
I’ll be back home tomorrow night and will continue regular posting after that.
