Hello all!

(Sorry Realized I did not do this sooner)

I live in Vegas with frequent trips to Washington DC. I was introduced to Tiki a few months ago, and now have re-decorated my bedroom accordingly (Much more to do)

Thank you all for such inspiration and knowledge. I keep learning everyday!

Hi!

Newby here been lurking around awhile so I figure best go with the Introduction.

As a Teen I got hooked on all things Tropical & while in the Military for 20 years (6 Air Force & 14 Coast Guard).
I tried my hardest to get station somewhere Overseas on an Island but the closest I got was while stationed in Alaska they sent us to Hawaii (Sand Point Oahu) for 6 months one year & 4 months a couple of years later.
A couple of my Cousins live in Kauai so I went over for a visit...about due for another fix.
I also have a Cousin in the Philippines...I just might have to renew my passport!

Hi all -

I should have done this three years ago when I joined (and I should have joined long before that), but since I paid the dues I felt like it was time to post a few items and introduce myself. Im not selling anything, and I dont really care what anything is "worth" (Im an enthusiast of capitalism but Tiki is about escapism and this is a hobby). I adopted the name when I signed up because I also collect pinball machines and had recently scored an Aloha pinball machine by Gottleieb (circa 1963). I am from Florida, where "Tiki" is often misused to refer to anything outdoor bar, thatched roof or not. But there is still a lot of "real" and local Tiki culture in the sunshine state! But my real interest in Tiki came about when I lived in New Mexico. If somebody asks I might relate how Los Alamos came to have Aloha Shirt Fridays and a Tapa room.

Los Alamos Nat'l Labs? I'm interested - is there a story to that?

Hello all,
I've been a lurker for a while, but only recently signed up. Been interested in all things Tiki for a while. Hanging out at buddy's Tiki party would certainly do it. I finally decided to try my hands at creating some stuff of my own, mainly tiki mugs. This forum has been a super informative place for me.

Aloha to all of you!
