Coon Tiki semi-group-shot in the cabin:

A few guys are missing ... like Basement Kahuna and Tiki Diablo and others, but here goes, best to my recollection...

Left to right:

Me (TikiGap), Benzart, CongaTiki, TikiTony, Pez, Von Tiki, TikiSkip, (In the back) - Silverline, JungleJim, kneeling in front on right is 8-foot tiki, TikiLee, Crazy Al, Doubravsky, and Swanky, on the far right.

PS: Sorry about the snoring... but it didn't bother ME a bit!

It was sooo cool, and I'd suggest getting to the next one of these gigs is you can.

Thanks and Props to Swanky, MsSwanky, Benzart, Tiki Diablo, and Basement Kahuna. Thanks Crazy Al too!



(Thanks for the update Conga!)

And where WAS A-A when the group pic was taken...he is mysteriously missing or hidden in my
pics too.

Aloha! What a nice weekend! Hope everybody got a few good tips for a few good chips and had a great time...Thanks to all for coming so far and all of the great company. I got a lot of great info myself, and a few new tools to replace some of the poor, beat up stuff that so often lurks in my tool drawers! Ben, for whatever we other guys taught, I'd say you taught all of us greenhorn young bucks a few tricks. And people even brought goodies! Plus a big-shot carver from L.A. gave me this killer gear shift knob!

I agree Everyone had a great time and All including myself learned valuable lessons.
I have bout 175 pictures I will upload and show tomorrow. When we have another one of these seminars, do as Swank suggested and pack your bags early as there will be VERY LIMITED Space Available. Words cannot describe the great times had by ALL, Including Myself and all the "Teachers". I will upload and share abour 175 pictures tomorrow. Right now I am Very tired, hungry and ready to go to bed. All day in airports and flying is not fun ..
Thank you Swank and Stephanie for the Taxis, the shopping, the digs and Maid Service
and Crazy Al for showing and Tiki Diablo and BK for being there. More Tomorrow.
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY

P.S. I vote that the Div-X movies of our very warm, gracious and ultra-talented host and hostess Swank and Steph on the makeshift Toboggan rides with us should be up first..You guys really did kick out the jams this weekend on everything. Big, big thanks.

WOW! Just got back tonight and although the trip back was MUCH nicer than the trip there, we're beat! Coon-Tiki was the BEST time I could have imagined! I mean, put a bunch of guys together in a mountain cabin, give 'em GREAT drinks and razor-sharp tools and you've GOT to expect a good time, but this was a BLAST! HUGE thanks to the Swankys for putting this seemingly impossible event together and making everyone at home away from home! Countless THANKS to the instructors who really went the extra mile to show us what they've spent years learning. Many thanks also to all those who brought a little something to share! What a great bunch!

I haven't had time to go through all 346 photos I took, but here's a few:

Here are all the attendees (except your humble photographer) doing their best Benzart Maori snarl!



Here's the prize(last Corona)-winning carving of the weekend; Crazy Al's Coon Tiki (in the wild):



And here are a few shots of BK's presentation on his patented aging techniques:

i got the ol' strip search at the air port.... Danny said it was beacause of my hat... i think i had traces of gasoline on my clothes from the chain saw....... anyway, i thing they misplaced my camera on the repack, so no pics from me.
Small chance it's in Stephanie's car... cross the fingers...
Her'Raw and Ye'Haw and everything else to Stephanie for getting the great venue and all the help moving dudes around and !!!Sacrificed her ride in more ways then one.

Swanky and the boys were all great!... many great carvers showed up and there will be more to come out of this event.
The hook knife is my new freind, and now i can even keep it sharp.

now off to SF for yet another tiki...... chop chop...

Today's secret word is: "Nawger Nob"

I had not given that much thought until I saw t-shirts that were headed back to LA and Vegas and other far flung places...

I am so ready to carve up a storm this summer!
