Just moved to Oahu from the Big Island. It's a huge culture shock. It's almost like a different state, crazy. Iv been staying along the North Shore but it's kind of sketch. Can anyone recommend some good spots? Mahalo
Yikes. I lived on Oahu for a while. Spent a little time houseless there too on North Shore and Honolulu. There really isn't anywhere "safe" in Honolulu (Waikiki area) I can think of to camp. Lots of tweakers around. I would sleep out on the beach out towards Diamond Head a lot, but again there's lot's of tweakers so never leave your stuff unattended. Diamond Head beach is a big gay cruising beach too, so there's lots of pervs to deal with out that way. But the further mauka you head from the beach, the less of that you'll find.I'm in Honolulu right now. Do you care to share any tips?
As long as you look like you belong, you can get into most any hotel. Check both sets of staircases and make sure the roof isn't alarmed with any wires or conspicuous alarm boxes above the door. Obv, prop it open with something just in case. Then, try to climb even higher and sleep on your perch. As for anywhere specific, I haven't been since I was a teenager. You might find some abandoned bunkers by the Diamond Head trail though.I'm in Honolulu right now. Do you care to share any tips?
