    Centrum Force is now working on details for Rug Summit 11 on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. There will be most definitely be a side trip to Kauai that will include options to see Waimea Canyon by helicopter and a trek around the Na Pali Coast to the famous waterfall in the movie Jurassic Park.

    Who is in?

    He could be. Waiting for a response. This is a great opportunity for him to get acquainted with some mainland rug washers of various sizes and ways of doing things.

    Not really, I'm like a struggling musician or actor in San Francisco.... Getting fooked by the government and the cost of living here...

    I know your living the American Dream... Your house is like a mansion on a nice island... You remind me of Sir Richard Branson who owns his own island...:rockon:

    That would be the place to stay and then hit the fish market on the way to the beach to grill it there and enjoy the sites and watch the sun set.

    I went there for a Sunday brunch once while on Poipu Beach and saw Clint Eastwood working out in the glassed in training room. As I passed by, we exchanged a nod of respect to each other. That was the year Comet HaleBopp was seen best on that Island at night. When we flew home at night it was better than a telescope just looking outside the plane.

    We're hoping to participate at the Rug Summit in 2018, and would love to extend our days in the Hawaiian islands. Any idea when exact dates will be published?
