I had a wonderful time. Portland is a beautiful city. Thanks Tikimaxton, Tikimama, Melintur, Tikitronic, Kim and everyone else who busted their butt to show us all a great weekend.

Will the real Hanford Lemoore please stand up?

I had such a wonderful time at the Crawl -- thank you so much to all of the event organizers. You guys put so much love and effort not just into your annual event, but also into making Portland a tiki-friendly town year-round, and the fruits of your labors are much appreciated.

The Alibi is looking gorgeous, and it was fun to hear the stories from the ongoing restoration effort. So many new details to see every time I go in there -- I'm already looking forward to seeing it again, and also to seeing Portland's newest tiki bar, Thatch, once it opens... Robertiki's plans sound very promising.

It was great fun getting to meet new folks like Tigerlily, Robertiki and the Rum Demons -- my only regret (which I seem to have after every event) is that I didn't take the time to introduce myself to more people. Even I get shy sometimes. I've got to get better about that.

And, of course, it was fantastic to spend a whole bunch of time with old friends I haven't seen in a while, like Tiki Wahine, tikibars, Melintur, TikiMama, Kim, Tikitronic, Monkeyman, dogbytes, puamana, Selector Lopaka, seamus & Jauna, Travellin' Tiki, Jungle Trader & Cheryl, Pepe le Tiki... -- I'm so pleased to hear that darned near everybody is going to be at Hukilau, so I'm going to get even more time with everybody soon.

Like an idiot, I brought my camera but forgot my memory card, but Hanford has a few pictures of the Alibi -- don't think he has any of people, I'm afraid. He's not quite as snap-happy as I am.

A big muchos gracias to all those who organized this past weekend - you guys did a fantastic job. Another huge thanks to those who opened up their homes to us - you're an inspiration to the rest of us. What a great rum-filled weekend.Thanks again.

Whew, I'm home at last. This past weekend has been a fantastic one. The organizers once again outdid themselves and pulled off a fault free event for us to remember for a long time to come.

Thank you to everyone involved in this year's festivities; organizers, vendors, musicians, the great staff at the Alibi & Jasmne Tree, home bar owners, and also to friends new & old.

I can't wait 'till next year when I can again enjoy the company of the northwest contingent, and all who have travelled from near and far.

I guess I'll start my post with a picture. Can't believe the first 24 hours post event yields only ONE photo thus far. Well, I can believe it. I didn't take many snaps either. Sorry folks. All I shot was something I KNEW I'd never get a chance to photograph again...

It's Robertiki in a dirt pile! Woooo hooo!

Ok, it's more than that. It's Robertiki standing behind the future bar at Portland's first new tiki haunt in forever, Thatch. There he is, trying to get us all to imagine ourselves swept away from our workaday lives into a tropical wonderland of you know the rest. It's going to be amazing, folks.

I'd also like to extend big time holla to all the people that made Tiki Kon possible: the organizers, open-house(bar) homeowners, Alibi, Jasmine Tree, and Jupiter staff, vendors, the bands, sponsors, everyone. You know who you are and you are awesome. It was also very nice to finally meet a bunch o TCers face to face. It's sooo easy to strike up a conversation with any one of you. As a shy person I have to remember that at future events. The ice is well broken. You are all beautiful people. Naming names will just reveal my terrible memory and I don't want anyone to feel unloved.

Having said that...

Super big thanks to Heather, Seamus, and Woofmutt for the great art I won at the raffle. Katie and I were triple blessed with prizes. Said art shall inherit places of honor in our up and coming tiki sanctuary.

A wonderful crawl and a wonderful time, I look forward to many happy tiki years to come.

-Joe (and probably Katie too because I know she had a good time)

Just arrived after a long drive (with a stop at Trader Vics for lunch with Dogbytes & Tikiwahine!) and I have to say I had a blast this weekend!! My liver will take some time to recover.
THANKS to all the folks that worked so hard so we could play, you guys did a great job!! Also a big thanks to the folks that opened up their home bars and kept us drinking under the hot Portland sun! And finally, Robertiki, thanks for the peek, I can't wait to see your bar when it opens.
It was great meeting new folks and partying with the usual suspects and I can't wait for the next opportunity to gather (and wreak havoc on our livers once again).
I definitely want to return to Portland to drink with the locals (maybe at Thatch when it opens) and shop in those great mid-century antique shops!!!
I actually used my camera this time so I'll try and get my photos up tomorrow!

Thank you from Kat and I. We had a fun time! I enjoyed visiting Portland, dining and drinking at the Alibi and Jasmine Tree, seeing Robertiki's work in progress, and hanging out and socializing with the many wonderful people we met!

I wish Kat and I could have road on the bus on Sunday with all of you. If the Sunday bus was anything like the Saturday bus, we would have had a great time!

Kat and I took a bunch of pictures but I have not looked at them yet to see if they turned out. I'll try to get to them later today. Hopefully, some are worth posting.

[Added by ScottMcGerik later in the day]

Well, I got a lot of photos. Unfortunately, hardly any were of people! The following were a few snapshots that I thought more interesting.

Thank you thank you to all the NW Tiki ohana for another great event this year, we had a blast !!
It was great to be able to see old friends and meet new friends...The kick-off party at Castaway Cove
on Friday was great, as was the Jupiter for for Saturday's festivities this year: lots of great music, vendors,
food & drinks...The brunch at the Alibi was a perfect way to start the day on Sunday before the Home Bar
Tour ( many thanks for the restoration efforts at the Alibi, it really looked fantastic !) Many thanks also to all
the folks who opened their wonderful home bars to us, its always one of my favorite things about the event.
I only took a few pics (was having problems with my new camera), but will post what turned out soon. Many
many thanks again for a fantastic weekend !

Wow! What a great event! Many thanks to all the folks who helped plan
and organize. Heather was great as the friendly and sassy emcee. Selector
Lopaka spins tunes like a pro and the vendors had fantastic art (I added a Seamus
and Heather Watts to my collection)! Both bands rocked and the outdoor
decorations were sublime. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did. This is
truly an annual event not to be missed.

On a side note: I left my baby (Montgomery) in the trunk of my car and he's
missing. Has anyone seen him??

Let me know if you want more.

Linda and I had a great time although it must not show on my face. It looks like I am scowling in a someone elses photo of me.
