Every summer for the past four years, my family has been taking a staycation on the North Shore of Oahu. It's not something we'd set out to do on purpose, but only because it takes a great deal of effort for a family with a young child to pack and prepare for a weekend away - not to mention scheduling a pet sitter and such.
We do it because that's what our jujitsu club has traditionally done for decades. I like to joke my version of roughing it is three stars, even though in high school I loved the hiking club and its weekend camps.
In addition to getting to know the club members and sister-club members better, it's always a nice reminder of how much Oahu has to offer. Here are some snaps:
