This is giving me an itch to hit the road - again.
2005 was the first time in many years that I didn't do at least one major road trip.
Dean, your post is making me antsy...
Thanks for all the pics, and the great advice on stuff to see.

I didn't take a lot of pics in Daytona mainly because on a previous trip I took pictures of every tiki and witco wall hanging we could find. I did notice the moai was back and I did get to look at the Hawaiian Inn showroom but didn't take any pics as it was real crowded and they were serving the buffet (which I didn't want to pay $30 for as I had already eaten at Julian's). I didn't even look in the Traders Restaurant because I thought it was tiki free inside (but I can't remember if I saw it on a previous visit or I just heard that).
I am very tempted to join you in 2006 for the January Hawaiian Inn gathering because 1. It would be more fun to see the show with the TC ohana then with a bunch of strangers, 2. I didn't get enough Florida sunshine during the Hukilau, and 3. I didn't see Kailuageoff and some other Florida TC folks at the Hukilau. Was he there?
Thanks for all the comments.

THAT WAS FANTASTIC!
I loved especially the fotos of the food you enjoyed. Made me miss Southern cookin'.
You really did do a great job of seeing some of the very best of the South (where I lived for 17 years). And your fotos are great quality, too!
Is there a "SOUTHERN Geographic" that could hire you? I'd subscribe!

Yeah, KailuaGeoff was there... just a couple days after the Hukilau.
Hawaiian Inn was truly something in January.
I had a blast.
Hope you can make it. I guarantee KailuaGeoff will be there because I know where he lives.
And Flounder better watch out too. I can find him. Just follow the crushed Pabst Cans.
