It might also be nice to see a periodic "scoreboard" for each of the Mr. Tikis. For example:

Mr. Tiki I - Lost. Last known to have made 83 visits.
Mr. Tiki II - Currently in Rarotonga. 123 visits to date.
Mr. Tiki III - On HOLD, residing in Moorea. Travelled while Mr. Tiki II was missing and made 23 visits in his first tour.
Mr. Tiki IV - Let's hope nothing happens to Mr. Tiki III!

Who is the record-keeper of the travelling little guy?
Who makes the rules for future Mr. Tiki's? (Size and shape for ease of mailing, etc.?)
Will there eventually be a Mr. Tiki Museum, where will it be located, and will it be featured prominently in Sven's Book Of Tiki 8?

Cheers! It's a Monday...

Big Kahuna, Mr Tiki has been slowly plodding along for the past five and a half years

Ace, you ask a lot of questions for a Monday morning
I am the keeper of all things Mr Tiki. I created the 3 Mr Tikis out of craft store wooden plaques and Buzzy's resin Coco Joe's knock-offs. The first post on page one of this thread had some information including his first trip in 2010, a map of his journeys and a list of his 36 hosts.

There have been a couple of people who received Mr Tiki but never send him back out. I think those people are gone from TC but I won't mention any names. The original Mr Tiki traveled for a bit and then went missing in the Pacific Northwest. I made Mr Tiki II and sent him out, he traveled around before he went missing north of the Mason Dixon line . So I made Mr Tiki III and sent him forth into the world. He was doing well but got lost by the Canadian postal service through no fault of TC members. In the meantime, a second TC member in the Northeast was able to reclaim Mr Tiki II and so he is the current Mr Tiki in circulation. There is only one Mr Tiki circulating at any given time and the host decides who to send him to next. You can usually tell where Mr Tiki is by looking at the few most recent posts. If you are interested in hosting Mr Tiki, drop a PM to the current host and let them know.

As far as a museum or a prominent place in Sven's book... we'll see

So it sounds like Mr. Tiki is heading to Florida from the clue.

MadDogMike, thanks for the great reply, the recap of the history of Mr. Tiki is certainly appreciated!

I'm planning some interesting trips in the next couple of years, and I'll keep in mind that I can ask to take the little guy along on the journey. It would be fun to photograph Mr. Tiki sitting IN a beer girl's cleavage at Oktoberfest in Munich, for example. Heck, for that matter, so would I! How's that for more Monday madness?!!

Here’s the first of a bunch. Still have to sort em out as to which go where. The pic is at the historic Hotel National in Havana. The ‘welcome" drinks were Cuba Libre’s and Mojito’s natch.

Btw, check out the cow hide shield I posted on Tiki Finds. It use to hang in the Polineso-formerly Trader Vic’s Havana.
I am thrilled to have it!

Old Havana, so envious! Can you share a bit about your travels there, did you speak the language, were you treated well (if you're an American) and was it something you felt pretty comfortable doing?

Yes, Havana is on my near-term bucket list, well before American business re-enters that market.
