Pau Hana Travels

Pau Hana means quitting time, done with work, or Happy Hour in Hawaiian and this is our motto in life.

He's a former Sheriff Deputy and ramp manager of a major airline and she's a former contractor for the US Navy working in Hawaii where they test and evaluate missle defense systems. We are also joined on the road with our 4-legged furbabies Spirit, our 5 year old Siberian Husky and Sofi, our 2 year old Yorkshire Terrier.

We consider ourselves part-time full-timers because we have a beautiful home base in Washington State that we enjoy most of the year. But when we hit the road it easily can turn into a multi-month 10k mile journey.

We started our camping adventures in a 24ft pull-behind and it only took 6 months to decide we needed to go bigger. We then settled on a 38ft toy hauler (Keystone Carbon 327) which we put over 15,000 miles in just 2 years including living in it fulltime in our driveway for 8 months while we built our dreamhome. After that venture we decided it was once again time to upgrade and move into something with a layout we loved and the necessities we needed like a W/D, a livingroom, and most importantly a dining table. All of which the Carbon didn't have. After 4 months of serious research looking at Super-C's like the Dynamax DX3, Class A's including a Winnebago Adventurer, and other 5th wheels we finally decided on a 2016 Cardinal 3825FL (Forward Livingroom).

We are very excited about our new rig and take delivery on Monday. We had it outfitted with several extras including a 5500KW generator and satellite system as we do a lot of Boondocking in our adventures. Future plans include a battery upgrade with whole house inverter and solar panels as well as an auto gen so we never find ourselves in a power loss perdictiment.

We are members of the Xscapers RV Club, Boondockers Welcome, Harvest Hosts, and RVillage. We also blog online at Pau Hana Travels – Join us on our Pau Hana adventures of life. or you can find us on Facebook or Instagram under PauHanaTravels as well.

We look forward to meeting more folks in our new FROG family and hope to see you along the way.
