so most people would write about similar events as "We went to the beach with the family. It was nice out". You are one of the few that can actually capture the real events and underlying tone and feelings! do you like having us all in your head, with you?

keep it up. cant wait for anything else. you could probably type up a restaurant menu and keep my interest.

I've always loved my tea full of flavor with 2 cubes of sugar, I'm not going anywhere
Thank you for sharing your family and thoughts with us Dave.

Following along here Dave. It's a privilege to read your reports that share heart and soul. I became an ADV inmate after reading your Trippin' in the Sunshine report in '09 and realizing I had seen LoveShack parked outside a Hampton Inn in Lumberton, NC on a very cold night during your ride south.

Dave, Julie and family. I find I always want to be where you are. It always seems better there no matter where you seem to be.

Happy trails and good health. Duane

Why do you always hit me right in the gut? I stopped reading your stuff so I wouldn't have to face myself.

Terrific stuff, Dave.

I really admire the way your words transcend just riding a motorcycle. I use 'em as inspiration when I write my own reports to make it more than just a ride report.

Write, and ride, on.
