My wife Eila and I have been together over 15 years.
We both moved to Kona separately in 1996. She started Touch of Class Cleaning and operated it for a number of years but sold it a few years back so she could pursue her love of photography and see if she could make a living from it. She’s still working on that.
Eila lived in Fairbanks Alaska for 27 years. I love taking her camping. She knows way more than I do about surviving in the woods. Kinda of like having your own eagle scout.
