Hopefully buying the beer shirt wasn’t the highlight of waiting all his life and traveling 5000 miles to Kauai.
Isn’t obvious, if you think there are too many tourists visiting Kauai, stop advertising the island as a tourist destination.
“…the airlines wants to be part of the effort to create balance…” LOL! Yeah right Mr. CEO!! All these guys see is dollar signs. Same with the Chamber of Commerce, the HTA, the KVB… Y’all keep chirping about finding the balance, well, start doing something about!! We’re already at the boiling point of too much. This year we’ll be up another 7.6% visitor increase, or 10%, or 15%…
Pretty soon the locals gonna start taking “crowd control” into their own hands, at the beaches and in parking lots… And who can blame them?
and what exactly is local crowd control? do tell, don’t spare any details. just get it off your chest ….
Some guy, use your imagination, or, go ask the uncles down Polihale…
Not to mention the tax credits to include the island as a Hollywood scene for all types of movies. Is anything too much or is the world racing towards the bottom? Money is just a means of trade, not the end all degradation of the ecosystem through resource exploitation. It’s too late, but don’t forget to be nice about it all. It is cray cray. Too many humans, time for a reset.
