Wow! What a time!
Super huge thanks to Kiliki and the Swank for pullin' it off!

It was great to meet all you crazy tiki-centralites. I was inspired to join in on the fun!

Here's a few of my shots from the weekend...

I saw your tatoo in Tiki Toa's pictures. I think it is great. From what I hear from Toa you are pretty protective of its origin. Not that I am interested in a tatoo, but I think it would make a great pool bottom. Can you share with me where you got the idea?




Here's the deal about tattoos: You know the one's on the wall when you walk in? People actually get those. I don't have any of those and would like to be the only one with this particular (over a year in the making) tattoo. That's why I don't want it in a book (or even really online).

That being said, I got the idea from a mosaic wall hanging of Easter Island I saw back in 1991 in New Orleans. It was $400 and I really wanted it, but couldn't afford it. Then it was gone....

When the Book of Tiki came out, I was surpised to find my wall hanging in the book! Then I decided that I needed a tattoo of this piece (which I changed around a bit) so that I could have it forever. Funny thing is, it cost more to get the tattoo than the original wall hanging! Oh well...

Here are 17 of my of my favorite pictures from the past weekend ....

It was hard to describe the feeling when I looked and saw in the distance this tiki ship/barge/portable island arriving....


I was watching closely as it maneuvered closer to the dock -- and then heard a steady cracking sound of wood splintering, as one of the pillars for the dock was torn away. An omen of the upcoming hurricane? (Those posts in the picture are suppose to be vertical).....


Billy Mure and myself....


Billy and Debbie dancing up a storm, pre-storm.....


King Kukulele, all framed up....


Mr and Mrs Cybertiki....


and their daughter, Christina, on stage at the Mai Kai with King Kukulele.....


a Mai kai fire dancer...


with the Mai Kai audience enthralled ...


Preparing some ice cream flambe....


Myself, enjoying a flaming Kona coffee grog....


Me again, in the Mysterious Mai Kai Gardens, hanging onto two pillars. I have no idea of what the white floating ball is in front of me ... some ghostly figure that appeared only on film....


Mr and Mrs Surburban Hipster .....


James, Formikahini, and Bamboo Ben....


No king sized bed, no mirrors on the ceiling, but I am still a very happy man...


A few of us who were at the Mai Kai Sunday evening .....


and my final drink of that evening - and some good reasons to return again some day....


Vern

Hey Vern,

Cool shot of the Tiki Beach! Can you email me a larger version of it. All the pictures I have of it don't show that it is a free floating boat. I remember talking with you on the boat, but didn't relize you were from the D.C. area. Here is a pic of me so you can put a face with the name.

Three cheers for the Suburban Hipsters for sleeping in a shelter on concrete after Hukilau! Man, that sucks.

I am alive and recovering now. Hukilau has been like being a war refugee. It was f&^$ing awesome to see home! I may never go to Florida again! I hope there was fun had. I have no idea. It's all a blur of a nightmare to me.

Not to be confused with the Suburban Hipsters of Rockville Maryland.

I felt the same way as we headed our way home... always trying to stay ahead of Jeanne...

I also felt I and we were robbed... not your fault, the hurricane's fault. It was too short of a party and had I known better what to do I would have stayed in town for Saturday night. I really didn't know my options and regret getting out of the state so quick. I am very dissappointed that I missed the Mai Kai. But I had a great time at what did happen and hope to return again next year! The rest of my trip was ruined also... I didn't get to stay with my friend in Melbourne and surf for three days like I wanted to for the last year...

Damn the weather...

Hukilau was a real gasser.
My Wahine (recently dubbed "Kava Queen") & I wrung every micron of fun out of every minute spent amongst the beautiful people of Tikidom! Well, except for the scaredy-cat time spent deciding whether to bug out or not...
Yeah, it sucked leaving a day early; but one nice side effect was being so relieved over not being killed as to negate the usual post-Hukilau depression effect!
Thanks to Swanky & Kiliki for staging another fantastic event! Hope you're both doing well at the Betty Ford Center.

It was definitely an exciting honeymoon for us! We'll have a great story to tell the kids.

The warmth and kindness of the tiki ohana has really stuck in my mind. Next year I'm bringing a bigger suitcase so I can bring home more stuff!

DrunkenMunky just informaed me that we NEED a pole to be the corner post of our Huki Lounge. Keigs? You're in Washington, right? I know Lonnie & Ginger were talking about coming to visit you, we may come down as well, with a van.

this is a mid century motel that fell victim to the weather.






This little girl is going to be completely famous one day.





This dance was a high point of the weekend.
Beautiful.




And this dance wasn't bad either!
