It's the only place in the country where I got a (temporary) job offer this spring. Hope to be moving back North in a year or two when this project is done and I can get another offer. In the meantime it's a different experience and a change of scenery. As towns go, Hilo's a notch less exciting than Duluth or La Crosse. After living in MSP, Denver and wild college towns it's hard to get used to living in a town that shuts up at 7PM. We are seriously in need of at least one (please?) good non-chain coffee shop here. At least I'll get to experience Hilo before the baby boomer retirees arrive in droves and change everything.
Speaking of changing everything, I lived in Vadnais just before it boomed and got plowed up for tacky suburban housing and big-box stores. It was a nice quiet area back then.
