First hoop: a new rabies vaccination and certificate. $$
Second hoop: blood sample off to a special lab in Kansas to do a titre test for rabies. $$$
Third hoop: wait 120 days from the titre test for permission to bring Jack to Hawaii. This date comes up on April 10th.

Seventh hoop: make airline reservations. $$$
Hoops 1-7 cleared!
