Well, I finally got all that hairspray washed out of my hair! and am back online...

I wanna give a great big shout-out and thank you to Holden for putting together Mondo Tiki and ESPECIALLY for all the Tiki Centralites for making the looong trek out to Las Vegas and withstanding the chilly vegas evening to support the vendors and show.

I think the memory of that weekend will be a favorite... especially after I hear all the 'backstories.'

What an incredible and unexpected treat to see SHAG join BigBroTiki Sven and Hukilau Brown doing bird calls on Quiet Village. It was just more than this girl can handle!

Mondo Tiki is probably a distant memory to all of you by now (if you remember it at all - too many Scorpions - ouch!) but I have finally just returned home!

Rolled into Chicago at 5AM this morning (May 01), with 6000 new miles on my Nissan and more than a couple-few new stories to tell from 16 solid days on the road.

Thanks again to Holden for throwing a first rate Tiki bash, and to all of the kind folks who gave me the priviledge of scribbling on ther TRT books. Your support means the world to me.

I didn't get to see too much of the event myself, as I was busy scrawling my Hancock all over shiny new books, so thanks to those who posted pics.

See you all at Hukilau and Exotica 2003!

Even though I'm a little bit mature to be at a springbreak event, I'm sure glad I made the effort to fly in for the afternoon at Mondo Tiki 2003. My old Navy buddy Mike, who lives in Vegas, went with me and we had a great time just sitting back a sippin'MaiTai's and listening to the Thurston Howlies morph the theme song from Gilligan's Island and some song by the Doors, I think? Big Mahalo to all of you who worked so hard to make Mondo Tiki a success.

Red, eh? My missing cumberbund was more of a fuschia. Oh, well.

Finally posting some more pics from the Mondo weekend... We had a blast - fun to see familiar tiki folks, and meet some new people. Thanks to Futura Girl for putting together the Vegas bus tour. And at the event, it was fun to see Bamboo Ben's pics from Eli Hedley (Lamarr), check out all the carvers, and see the whole afternoon show, complete with Bax, license to spill.

Cool pics jab - that's quite a steak. Neonopolis is still on our to-visit list in Vegas.

And now, still more pics from the Mondo weekend... Naomi put together a neato slideshow of photos taken in and around Vegas, plus a bunch at Mondo Tiki. Check em out!
