Speaking of local Meets, presuming that you're stationed at Pearl, there's the Pali Paths
poly peeps (http://palipaths.org/index.php
) who run meets in Honolulu. I wasn't able to check them out last time I was over there, but getting some face time with some poly's might be a good way to check things out and see if this way of living would suit you. And who knows...if it is something you're inclined towards, there might be some interested parties who will already have been introduced to you by the time it's figured out.
