tikitam, I would be happy to send you a piece or several! I'll send you a PM with all the details. Shipping has been averaging 10 to 20 bucks so far.

Aloha David!

I guess you've seen from bigbro's post that I've been handing out the bamboo you gave me... in fact, it's all gone! Everybody who received a piece of tiki history was very happy!

Mahalo again for making the bamboo artifacts available, and all your work bringing Stockton's tiki past to life!

Happy New Year!

Here's my piece in its seat of honor in my Tiki altar:



I shall have to replace that Hale Tiki rendering in the frame above with a blow up of the Islander postcard. Oh, and someone please send me a set of those cool chopsticks with the sign and the girls on it.

You need to make yourself a sign: "Trade Bamboo for cocktails!"

It was very nice meeting you David. We enjoyed our little excursion to Lodi. Thanks for your generous offering of the Islander Bamboo. It will be cherished and well utilized in my forthcoming Tiki Lounge. I'm so glad the mug and swizzles were a hit.

Mahalo,
Darilyn

Here's a big piece that's now on display at Minnie's.




Met up with Jungle Trader and gave him a bunch of 1-1/2 ft long x 4in wide bamboo for the TC Ohana at Trader Vic's January 30th.




Made this 8.5x11inch paper sign for the event.

Tikitam sent me these very cool Thor Heyerdahl souvenir coins! Thanks Tikitam! I just put 4 nice pieces of Islander Bamboo in the mail for her a couple of days ago. That makes 18 pieces Total in Canada now!


From Left to Right, Top to Bottom;

KON-TIKI Museet

Kon-Tiki was the name given to a raft by Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl in his 1947 expedition. On exhibit at the Kon-Tiki Museum is Thor Heyerdahl's original Kon-Tiki balsa-wood raft, used on this expedition from Peru to Polynesia to prove that the Polynesians originally came from South America.

Kon-Tiki Museum - Easter Island

In 1955-1956, Thor Heyerdahl organized the Norwegian Archaeological Expedition Easter Island. The expedition included experiments with regard to the carving, transport and erection of the moai statues.

Kon-Tiki Museum - Ra II

In 1969 and 1970, Thor Heyerdahl built two boats from papyrus and attempted to cross the Atlantic from Morocco in Africa. Based on drawings and models from ancient Egypt, the first boat, named Ra, was constructed by boat builders from Lake Chad in the Republic of Chad using reed obtained from Lake Tana in Ethiopia. After a number of weeks, Ra took on water after its crew made modifications to the vessel that caused it to sag and break apart.
A similar vessel, Ra II, was then built by boatmen from Lake Titicaca in Bolivia and likewise set sail across the Atlantic from Morocco, this time with great success. The boat reached Barbados, thus demonstrating that mariners could have made trans-Atlantic voyages by sailing with the Canary Current.

Kon-Tiki Museum - Tigris

Tigris was the name of the third boat built by Thor Heyerdahl, intended to demonstrate that trade and migration could have linked Mesopotamia with the Indus Valley Civilization in what is now modern-day Pakistan.
Tigris was built in Iraq and sailed with its international crew through the Persian Gulf to Pakistan and made its way into the Red Sea. After about 5 months at sea and still remaining seaworthy, the Tigris was deliberately burnt in Djibouti, on April 3, 1978 as a protest against the wars raging on every side in the Red Sea and Horn of Africa.
