Thanks for the link! I would like to maybe host something at my place before the Hala Kahiki event since I'm right in melrose Park (10 minutes away) and I've got a decent deck and nice size place. That way I can get some advise on my place too! let me know what you guys think.

Just checked out the updated web site and I'm real excited now! Getting to visit the Kona Kai is going to be a real treat. And I like the variety of events that are planned. Robin and I already booked our flight. We are going into Midway via Southwest on the 15th. and returning on the 25th. So we'll have plenty of time to check out all the museums and architecture before the events.

Lisa, that road trip from here sounds like fun but I can't take off much more than a week and that wouldn't leave much time to spend in Chicago.

I have an extra cardboard box you can rent.


Don't worry about sleeping in it; half the population of this city calls the ol' fridge-box their home. That, or sleeping on the 'L'.

As for the road trip - well, you know I'm gonna advocate that!

Having just made the drive from Vallejo to Chicago this week... I recommend wearing your seatbelt in Iowa (I wasn't speeding, but the no-seatbelt ticket cost me $50!), and thrifting in Nebraska.

Ever since James showed us the pictures from his book tour, I've decided that the Grinning Miata, a co-driver and I need to travel Route 66 together....

Aloha!!!

Really? That would be divine. Are your rates reasonable?

I take it there's a homeless population in Chicago. I thought they'd all moved
out here!

You weren't wearing your seatbelt?! Tsk Tsk. We all know how villainous
trees love to leap out in front of unwary drivers.

It does sound like some of us will indeed be road-tripping, time/money issues permitting. YES--I cannot resist the siren song of Omaha thrift. Not to mention, all those decaying roadside attractions and wistful old motels...

Robin and I will be flying to Chicago for the event and driving back on a 2 week road trip! That way we can carry all our thrift store loot home with us. Yeehaw!

I'm not new at collecting tiki and other barware stuff but will be new to attending Exotica. Please be nice and say 'hi' if you see a female by herself at these events. My friends don't have the same interest in this stuff as I do, so it looks like I'll be going solo.

I was wondering if there is gonna be someway of knowing when new information is posted about Exotica 2003 without just going to the site all the time. Will there be an email sent out to those who said they are going?

I'll be in Chi-Town from Thursday thru Saturday of that week anyway, so I'll definitely be there.
