Tiki Kiliki here! From Atlanta and now live in Tennessee. My tiki roots still thrive on and I surprisingly find more tiki here in Rocky Top than down in the land of Georgia!

Yee-Haw & Aloha,

Aloha! Tiki-bot here. I'm new to the list but have had an active interest in all things tiki on and off for years. Hanford and I were once shipmates on a scurvy-laden vessel known as the Death Star and he helped me see the error of my tiki-less ways. I was trying to ease into my tiki-dom slowly, but think I may have to go full steam ahead after the Oasis weekend.

My girlfriend Gretchen and I had an unbelievably good time at the Tiki Oasis weekend. Looking forward to more events like this (though I find it hard to believe this weekend could be topped).

Aloha,
Tiki-bot

Hi, this is Cherry Capri here and my good friend, the bonga playing, C.B. Howlie (aka Cary) of the Thurston Howlies.
We had fabulous time at the Palm Springs 2002 Tiki Oasis and want to thank Otto and everyone who made it possible.

Howdy! I've been lurking here for a few weeks now, but haven't posted. Just got back from the Caliente Tropics. Had an excellent time! It was great meeting Otto, Sven and the whole gang.
My name's Lee, I live up in Northern California, and have been into Tiki and Hawaiiana for years. We don't have a tiki bar at home, but my wife finally agreed to let me do our entire bedroom/bathroom suite up in a tiki theme, which I'm just getting started on. I'd like to solicit any opinions/tips. I got some great ideas this weekend in Palm Springs! I'm also learning the Ukulele, so if there are any other players here, I'd love to hear from you! Mahalo!



Hi Tiki Lee,
Went to the Oasis show too and had lots of fun.I'm also new to this forum and it's been fun chatting already.I'm also learning the uke.Check out this link:

Hey tiki peeps, I am new to this so this is me in a nutshell. My wife and I live in Laguna Niguel, I'm obsessed with carving tikis and am starting a new business. Chiki Tiki.com. All i have to say is the Tiki community that we met at the Oasis 2002 was the best. Thanks and i look foward to chatting with you all.

Aloha! I am a semi-profession ukulele performer in the Twin Cities area and a longtime fan of tiki culture, and agree with DaneTiki that it is criminal the lack of tiki bars in the Twin Cities.

Greetings all! Just signed in today, so I'm new to the group. Have lived near beaches all my impressionable years, and took them for granted til I ended up in the hills of PA (bout halfway between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh). Have been collecting mugs, S&P shakers, what not. My beloved has been collecting african carved wood statues and masks. Looking forward to being here. Have found a wealth of knowledge already. Just what I was looking for!

cheers,

uncle arty

Aloha to all. this is my first visit to this web site. sadly i didn't get to participate in the Yahoo Group. All I can say is Thank the Tiki Gods that such a web site exists and I am not as alone in my love for tiki as I thought i was.

when i was a little girl and it was my birthday, i was always allowed to pick where i wanted to have my special birthday dinner.....

my parents would shutter with disgust as the day would approach, knowing i would select the restaurant with the worst chinese food for 50 miles, "but, Dad, It has a color-changing waterfall and they give you those funky skull glasses, the food has fire on it!"

F#@*, Chucky Cheeze!

need i say any more?

inkylouise

ps. i had a great time at Palm Springs!

Aloha,
What got me into this. I was at the mall yesterday shopping a Neiman Marcus and saw shirt with tikis on it. That's what happend. I swear! (actually, it's been in my family since the 40's. Someday you's will know the entire history if I can get some help on writting a book and slow down building custom tropical decor!)

Although I don't post much these days, I've been reading Tiki Central since we were all stranded together back on the island of Yahoo.

Once I shared a cabin on the same creaky tub sailing through San Rafael with Hanford and Tiki-Bot. Oh, I remember well that fateful night when Hanford registered tikiroom.com and put as all in the history books. Times have changed since then, with me all the way across the country in so-far-tiki-less South Carolina... nearer the Mai Kai but much farther (in body) from the meccas of tikidom.

Was Jon Tiki and still am, with an alter-ego in process. Drop a line if you turn up a tiki bar within spitting distance of Charleston, SC.

-Jon

Hello Tiki-world. Just registered and getting
my feet wet in the warm tropical waters of tiki central. My wife and I attended Tiki Oasis 2 and enjoyed it even though we were about half a generation older than the average tikiphile. Fun group. Thanks to C'Al
for helping the technically challenged. He knew how to operate them new fangled card keys and got us into our room safely.
