Aloha! Tiki peeps take a look-

Made it back to Cali intact following a two week getaway to Florida to attend the Hukilau party and visit friends.

I had a great time as you can imagine. Thanks to my bros TikiMango and TikiHana, I was introduced to several awesome new poly-pop friends. Florida peeps are just fantastic. Just one example of Florida hospitality I experienced concerned my sketchbook that I brought along during my trip. I actually lost it three times over the course of a very boozy evening and can you dig it? My sketchbook was returned to me three times personally by those that had found it!

My Cali friends knew I was taking Amtrak across America from Los Angeles to Chicago to Washington DC and then down to Orlando. A freakin' awesome experience over four days to reach my destination.

Because of requests to view them, here is a selected group of pics extracted from the 500+ pics I snapped...enjoy.

Thanks TikiMango, TikiHana, Benzart, Wayne Coombs, the organizers of Hukilau and all the many new friends I made while in Florida. This was a trip of a lifetime but not my last to the land of sunshine! See you all next year!
Take Care, Aloha! G

TikiG, it was great meeting you at Hukilau. Thank you for the swag, by the way! You're the best!

Phinz, I hate you...in a friendly way! I can't believe t=you won the carved ax. But, it couldn't happen to a coller cat. So, I guess I'm not hating too much.

I hope to see both of you guys at the next tiki gathering!!!

You could have saved some dough by walking the beach in the early morning. Hana's hats were everywhere :)

Tiki G and Kenike, thanks for the photos
So that's what happened at Hukilau!?!
I saw some of that!

I have some stuff to prove I was there! - its all about the stuff!
and there's a Bob Ho bone necklace I found later that is not shown (sorry Bob/Tiki Hana)

and I saw a lot of beautiful women but mostly they were blurry cause i was at the Mai Kai most of the time


and the goods:
