Hi, I'm on my way next month w/o my kids. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">: I'd love to spend a couple/few nights NOT spending big $ at the hotels. So, I'm thinking of camping one night at Hosmer's Grove so we can do a long day hike at Haleakala. But, any other suggestions? Where to camp? Or, where NOT to camp? :LOL Maybe Hana?<br><br>
So, how warm/cold do you think it'll be in January; ie. do I need a super warm sleeping bag w/a big pad? A sweater for hiking the crater? I remember once hiking there and having snow fall on me. Not sure which month, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br><br>
Thanks!!!!<br><br><br>
Oh and...can you recommend a decently priced bikini wax salon in Kihei area? Last winter, I went to a great little shop in Honokawai but now we're on the other side.

I visited Maui in January a few years ago, and camped at Hosmer's Grove and also the other National Park campground, Kipahulu. It was kind of cold at night at Hosmer's Grove. You probably wouldn't need a <i>super</i> warm sleeping bag, but you'd want a pretty warm one. And you'd probably want to take more than just a sweater for hiking up at the crater. Kipahulu is down at sea level, so you shouldn't have to worry about getting too cold there. That was a nice place to camp. It's probably where I got dengue fever, but I don't think there's any dengue fever on Maui right now.
