1. Yes, my buddy is very honest and my biggest worry was the plane crashing fron San Fran to NJ
2. Bora Bora was awesome. I was there in 1986 before all the over-the-water fancy hotels. I stayed at a place called the Oa Oa Hotel that was owned by a couple from California. Great food and awesome beach.
Diving was incredible with the sharks and octopus all over, Bloody Mary's was really cool, the trip takes forever to get there.
The only negative was that the morning of my departure, the space shuttle Challenger exploded and it was a somber trip home.
