Hukilau is fast approaching, and I’m already mentally packing my bags (much easier, now that the War Against Shampoo has been reduced to a Firm Grudge Against Shampoo). I’m planning on bringing a webcam to some of the late-nite room parties, assuming I can get Internet access. I’ve set up a chat room on Userplane that supports streaming webcams, feel free to dive in and join me! If you have your own webcam that you’re bringing to Hukilau, you can use my Userplane chat room to stream it to the folks back home, too. Here’s how to use it:

- Go to this link: Humu Kon Tiki Webcam

- You’ll need to log in, but you don’t need to create an account if you don’t want to; you can log in as a guest.

- Once you’re logged in, Click “Chat!” to launch the chat window.

- You’ll see a list of users in the room in a list on the left side, under “The Molokai Bar.” If my webcam is currently broadcasting, you’ll see “Humuhumu” in the list; click my name, and you’ll get my webcam video in the lower left corner. There’s a “+” button you can click to enlarge the video window.

You can log in now, if you’d like, but there won’t be anything to see until I start broadcasting. When I find myself ready to start broadcasting, I’ll send up a flare at Tiki Central in this thread (and in Tiki Central’s Shout! chat window, too).

Oh, we’re going… to a Hukilau…

    Well, you’re one up on my then. Hoo boy. I can’t wait to do it all over again. Minus the hurricane part, of course.

    That picture actually has Christopher in it, I couldn’t fit him in the video frame. Here’s the full picture, with Christopher holding a big ol’ coconut full o’ rum:

    [...] This post about our trip to Hukilau has been sitting here, taunting me in its mid-drafted state, for weeks now. Just the details from the first day were already too long to be a reasonable post — a full account of the whole weekend was looking like it would be a bloated whale of a thing. I could have put it up, but who would have read such a gangly monstrosity? I just need to clear the blockage and just get going with the blog posting, fercrissakes. So to get a sense of the fantastic time we had, just check out my photos, and read the threads of Hukilau memories and pictures on Tiki Central. The only thing missing from the pictures is the afterparties — they happened out in the Atlantic ocean, under the stars, a few dozen of us in our underthings and thankfully cameraless (that includes no webcams).
