Tikipedia,

Thanks for the updated photos of the sign. It is really a shame that the sign is sitting in someones front yard in the middle of nowhere withering away. Hopefully you or your friend can go back when the owner is more respondent and make and offer he can't refuse.

This is a great piece of Tiki history that must be saved.

DC

Tikipedia-

Great pics - thanks for posting those. Sounds like your friend's conversation was unfortunately short and unproductive... shoot. I wonder if the owners know what they have(?) Sad for them and for us that they were not in the negotiating mood.

Like DC said, someone needs to go back after some time has passed... and plunk down a wad of cash to convince them to sell.

Someone suggested that a "Don The Beachcomber" fan may have made this replica. Look at the age of the sign, I hate to tell you but grown as- adults back in the day didn't go prancing around making replicas of DTBC signs. It wasn't that big of a deal. Those places were just there. If you got loaded or laid so be it. Of course it's an original. Big advice, I know some 1% bikers in Arizona who often have a bunch of stuff in the front of their house, I would be careful where I go knocking in the AZ.

Indeed.

Allow me to introduce myself. I am the friend of Tikipedia who made the journey to look at this sign. In retrospect, I was probably a little too enthusiastic about opening a closed gate and knocking on doors. Tread lightly in this area of AZ.
