A HUGE thank you to TikiTastic Mark. What an absolute standup guy...after offering up his van, and the driver dropped out...he drove our drunken selves all over the place. Essentially, giving up some of his fun for our benefit and honoring a commitment. THANK YOU MARK!

Oh, and the family reunion of the cousins was great. It's so great to have Ohana on TC!

P.S. Thanks to Hanford, Martin, and Mai Tai for coordinating such a great event. Cheers to play dough today! See ya all soon!

A HUGE thank you to TikiTastic Mark

I'll second that emotion. Mark is now number one tiki dude in my book. With his patient herding of many random tiki cats from here to there he richly deserves much respect and accolades. Thank you Tikitastic!

PS Come on, man. I had a rough night and I hate fuckin' Journey, man!

Sitting here at LAX wishing I was still at Forbidden Island. You Bay area TCers are the nicest, kindest bunch of folks I've ever met. Thank you all for the mega dose of aloha spirit ... I'm really blown away.

Mahalo for making this trip so much fun!
Chris

Wow! What a Great Weekend!

Thank You Hanford, Martiki, Mai Tai and everyone involved.

Special Big Thanks to TikiTastic Mark for going Above and Beyond the call of duty. You are the King and KingTastic is what I will call you until I fall asleep.


Thanks also to Conga “Magic Moves” Mike for showing us how it’s done.

Redundant may be my middle name but I have to thank everyone as well. Tiki Chris was right, the nicest people worked incredibly hard to ensure a good time for all.

Forbidden Island and Martiki had some huge shoes to fill after the legendary tales of kindness, skills, and knowledge we'd heard. I have to say we we NOT disappointed. His SuperHero status is WELL DESERVED.

I can't wait until we get back up there.

Thanks to you all.

If anyone has the link that teaches idiots how to post pictures readily handy, I'll embarrass myself further.

P.S. Dr.Von Zombie- livers are overrated. So...Thursday?

Anything for you CoCo LoCo









A special Frankoma style War God called Mai Tai (Yellow and Brown)was made for the occasion. Gecko produced it in Hawaii Forbidden Island is carved on the bottom. I have some left for sale $95 plus actual cost for shipping to you. Contact me through TC personal messages if you would like to have one. First come first serve until they are gone.

I also have some of the Hawaiian Honu Green War Gods for sale as well.

I also displayed my newest mug design Tiki Crate with the Forbidden Island tiki inside, that shows in the photo. Gecko and I will produce these in the future.

Mike and Martin threw a wonderful party at Forbidden Island our favorite tiki bar. Thank you! It was good to see friends, Wendy

Sigh. Another year, another SF Tiki Crawl. Many memories, many good times indeed.

First off, let me extend a specific thank you to HL for his stewardship of the Crawl. His live webcast of the Crawl put the events into a new arena of fun. Some serious kudos for Hanford to pull that off, even if I have no idea how it all worked. Muchos gracias as well to Martiki for his expertise as host and Crawl planner; Martiki is an old hand at Crawl logistics and his input is always appreciated. I don't know what Mai Tai told Trader Vic's but those folks came through at Frisco and Emeryville. Way to go, partner.

I wish I could have had more time visiting with all the Crawlers. Some made it here from far away, and a few even farther than that, to attend the events. Time goes by so quickly, there never seems to be enough hours, or Journey songs, to enjoy.

This year I take away many fond memories of the Crawl weekend, and a few candid snappies to memorialize the festivities. I'll never forget little Baby F.I., who made it through the storm and was saved by one of the three wise men. He is the Miracle of the Tiki Crawl and will forever act as a beacon of hope and salvation for future Crawl pilgrims. Tiny Baby F.I. showed us what is pure and righteous in the world, that deep down everyone is good and when given the right time and place we all can do wonderful things. Yes, our individual feats of charity and compassion shall contribute to a wider well of goodwill that betters us all.



Then again, there's this:




QUICKSAND!

PS In 2002 Hanford said that from then on he'd say zazz instead of cool. Arrghhh! I knew that, I knew that!

Thursday was the highest highlight for me. "Linda" (lurker on TC) at Martini Monkey, who I never met before was very eager to write my name "Jungle" on the name tag, so I let her. She said she was very good at writing. Well I can't read cursive and neither can anyone else. "Jungle" just looked too damn fancy for me so I discreetly pulled the tag off and wrote it on another tag all the while she's screaming that I've insulted her and we're getting a divorce now. Then she tells me I write like a second grader (that's it, we're definitely getting a divorce now) all the while I'm trying to peel the sticker off the tag. I spent half an hour trying to peel the sticker. Then she tries for 5 minutes, then Drunken Hat looks at it and says it's already been peeled off and there is no sticker. SHIT! "Linda" lost it at this point and was laughing hysterically. I decided it would be better to be Vic Nolte "Famous Movie Star".

Michelle the Shooter and buxom blonde (no TC name) was dressed to kill. Absolutely stunning. YES! Anybody get a shot of her?

I was an eyewitness to the near burning of Palo Alto TV's along with Hanford's secret Kinko's box, courtesy of Unga Bunga. Believe me folks when I say it was much more dramatic in real time than on webcast, I mean it. It was like Beavis and Butthead all over again, FIRE FIRE HEH heh Heh HEH yeah

Thanks to Hat for driving us home. I slept in the back seat as he drove and woke up with a deep ridge across the side of my face from the seat. And thanks for letting me crash at The Dark Marq room. Yeah, I got home at 6:30 in the morning. As I'm sipping my coffee and reading the paper in my usual position (like I never left) the wife gets up and says, "When did you get home?" "Just now" I reply to which I begin to duck for cover. frying pans were flying.

That is all.
