So here is my plan for an interactive Tiki Central activity: Mr Tiki travels across the country visiting TC members, his adventures are recorded here.

You get Mr Tiki in the mail. Take a picture of him with you, or on your tiki bar, or at a local tourist spot, etc. Post the picture here on this thread, I will update the travel map.

Arrange for the next recipient of Mr Tiki - preferably someone some distance from you, not next door. Make sure they want to participate and will be home so Mr Tiki won’t sit lonely in a mailbox for weeks Send them a link to this thread so they know what’s going on and where to post their picture.

Tear off the old label, stamps, and any other residue from the back of Mr Tiki. Using package tape, tape a paper shipping label to the back him (a 3x5 card works great) and $3.26 in postage (8 first class stamps). No need to put him in a box, what can he see from there??!! (May be best to put stamps on him and drop him in the mail box, that way the Post Office want look at you funny like they did when I dropped him off)

Wish Mr Tiki well and drop him in the mailbox. Should Mr Tiki arrive to you in need of repairs, PM me and we’ll arrange for repairs to be made.

There are 10,000 TC members and we want Mr Tiki to visit as many people as possible, so PLEASE get him on his way as soon as possible

**********************************************************************************

Well, that’s the plan – we’ll see what happens Will Mr Tiki survive the rigors of First Class travel- USPS Style? Will some over-zealous government employee reject him? Will we get bumped to the dreaded Bilge? Keep watching this thread for Mr Tiki’s Wild Ride!

OK, my turn first. Here's Mr Tiki lounging by the pool with his good friend Spitting Tiki. Getting in a little R&R before his long journey.



Where is he off to?

Lucas, you OK?

This will be a sort of random trip around the country. I have already sent it out to someone now it's out of my hands. Each person who receives it will send it to whoever they choose, there's no sign-up list.

Mike I love this idea but I am bummed there is no list of where it goes or who it goes to. Even if it was randomly selected it would of been cool to have people sign up.

Maybe the person who gets it could PM someone on here and ask for their mailing address. I have a lot of people's addresses from the Tiki Swap so you can surprise those folks if you like!

Thanks for the interest folks

Perry, when someone receives Mr Tiki and posts a picture then I'll know who had it and update the map. If I don't know where they live, I'll send them a PM and ask. At this point Mr Tiki is traveling "naked" - with no box so you can't really add anything in with him unless it's epoxied on

Liz, it's not exactly random - the person who receives him decides who to send it to next. But you can "lobby" to have have him sent to you Maybe the reciever will look at this thread to see who's interested. We don't really want to surprize anyone with Mr Tiki, I would rather people know in advance that he's coming so he doesn't get sent to someone who doesn't want to or can't participate.

Bumz, I think he'll float - I guess you could send him off "message in a bottle" style but that would probably lower his Average Speed. When he makes it off the 48 states, I'll find a way to reflect that on the map

I suppose if he travels in a box we should be sure there's breathing holes in the box, yes? Ideas like this just might save the US Postal Service!

He can come here if he wants, but I think he wants to go to Tahiti. (Or maybe it's me... yeah, I want to go to Tahiti.)
