Hi there!
My name is Jack and I'm in Hilliard, Ohio.
I've been interested in tiki, hot rods, motorcycles and surf rock since I was a kid (and I'm pretty sure I'm past my halfway point). I was first exposed to tiki culture eating at the Kahiki as a child and one of my dad's friends at a cool little tiki bar themed basement.

More recently, I just started finishing my own basement and my wife and I decided to have our own tiki bar... so while trolling the web for ideas I came across this site and spent a few hours cruising the port.

Now I want to officially express my interest in joining the FOM.

I plan to be at the Hula Hop so hopefully I'll meet some of you there!

Until then, best regards,
Jack

I haven't been yet... every time I make plans to, something comes up. Looks like the Hula Hop may be my first visit.

Thanks for all the "welcomes", glad to be here. Right now I'm really wanting to know more about all the cool "merit badges" some of you have in your signatures but I'm sure that's something I'll only learn about in time... so I'll be patient.

Bought a new, old shirt for the Hula Hop, hope it's appropriate...

There is much to learn here, young Tiki Padwon, patience is indeed a virtue. Until you learn all of our secrets, please continue to enjoy the port and I am sure you will have fun at the Hula Hop!

I wouldn't worry about your shirt. You will find that around here appropriate dress is all a state of mind. You will find we are of the "don't dress your snake in a mumu" school here.

You may also find that some of us are just inappropriate! :lol: :pieface:

A-LOOOOOOOOOOOO-HHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA! You're so close to so many of us! The Grass Skirt is a wondrous place, and the Hula Hop will be such a great occasion for your first trip!
