I hope you had fun Swizzle! I would be interested to hear what you thought of your travels. I am surprised that we didn't run into each other, we must have just missed you on Wednesday. I hope that you are recovered by now, I know it took me a week or so.

I picked up Robbie at the airport and we stopped by Ember's to see the Frank Bowers mural.

After checking into the hotel, we stopped by Doug Dorr's house to hang out for a bit. Very nice tiki getaway.



We then went to Trader Sam's and met up with lots of Tiki Centralites

Does the Swiz look a little like this guy?



I couldn't help but notice he accidentally smiled in one of the photos

ATP,
That pic is right on!. You're too funny.
Not to wax philosophically,but I'd rather see an accidental smile than a forced one.
Cheers, hope to see you and J G Sat at Don's

I don't know why i don't smile in photos although i think i am when it's taken. Maybe i'm smiling on the inside.

Tikivato, i cannot thank you enough. I wouldn't have seen anything without you. L.A. is just crazy, a lot bigger than what i'm used to. You are a true gentleman and i really enjoyed our time together and look forward to doing it again.

nui'umi'umi, it was great meeting you also and having you come along to all the destinations i wanted to see. And also both of yours wives.

To all the other Tikiphiles i met along the way, it was great meeting you in person also. Talking face to face is a hell of a lot better than all these zeros and ones.

That plane ride is a pain in the arse, literally, but i'm sure i'll do it again in the future. Hopefully we'll meet again and i also get to meet some more of you.

WOW....Thanks Swizzle....I received the Tiki Farm Appleton Estate 2011 mug in the mail yesterday. The fantastic Black Beauty tiki next to it is the one Swizzle made for me and gave me on his tour of Los Angeles. Swizzle, as my brother told you, Thanks Cabron. Did you get your Book?
