Great RR my first iDave RR, gives me inspiration to write some of my own. We have a lot in common, Weestrom, love of cigars and Makers, but didn't get so lucky in the wife department. You are a very fortunate to have found iJulie.

Definitely IN!

Well heck Dave, I saw this report early on but decided to wait till you had a few pages down before getting into it as I knew I would be glued till the end. Sounds like a heck of a trip. The open road and the interesting people along the way are what makes a trip to me. Things to ponder and wonder during the boring miles you have to encounter getting to the exciting sMiles ( as Voni Glaves would say). You're story at present has you about 42 miles from my home on I-10. I-49 is a trip in it's self with nothing for a long ways after Alexandria to Shreveport and I-20 to the big cities. But, the 75 mph speed limit helps a bit here ;-) . Safe travels and keep it coming. Jury Duty > Hmmmm > after a visit to see a judge once for skipping it, I never skipped again. ha ha ha ha ha .

This train will be rolling out of the station soon. While I know exactly where we're heading next, I'm not exactly sure how we're gonna get there. My options are seemingly endless at the moment. I could introduce Cody. I could reintroduce Abby. I could introduce the phone call that randomly streamed into my conscious while smoking a Camel after filling LoveShack at the Shell station in Lafayette. Or I could dive right into the deep and introduce another interstate, while wondering just how the fuck I'm gonna get out of jury duty tomorrow. No, really. Thanks for tuning in .

Introduce them all. we want all the iDave material. bring it on...

Rick's Rendezvous. I'm leading a ride Friday and sweeping for Mike Saturday, but if you come down I'll make sure I show you around some of my old stomping grounds. I'll even treat you to a BBQ lunch.

Dave,
As usual I'm late to the story. Glad I found you are still kickin' and more importantly still riding and writing. I can't wait to hear about the rest of the trip. Take care my friend.
Mike

Here I have been thinking everything on ADV has been a little quiet for the winter, but somehow I've missed an iDave report for a month.

Thanks for taking the time to share, it makes me appreciate what I sometimes take for granted.

Ryan

I can't say enough how much I enjoy reading your ride reports Dave. They are so much more to me than words and pictures on an internet forum. Thanks.

I was giddy beyond description. The photo was posted on FB along with something like,
“Everything’s BIG in Texas, even the birds. Three hours to Abby’s house.”




Thanks for the am read! Well done.

Nice. Short, simple, and to the point.

If Haley and I ever have a little girl I fully intend to be cleaning every gun I own in the living room when they come by to pick her up.

Why?

If they're scared shitless then I know they won't last. If they smile and say, "Oh, nice collection. I love the smell of Hoppe's Bore Solvent," I'll know he's the one for her.

Awesome and judging by Cody's response he certainly respects you.
Dave and Julie the two of you are blessed to have an awesome family.

Thumb From the other side...

Top of the day there Dave..
Relatively new guy to the forum. I've traveled many of the same roads you have been talking about here. Even driven on those same highways too on a number of occasions. I hope the visit with your daughter is just as good as the visit with your son. You have every reason to be a proud dad. The comments made by others makes me think I'm going to look up your past RRs. Seems to be a favorite of many. I'm sure enjoying this one and will be looking for more in the days ahead. Keep writing and traveling man.
Stay safe and have a great trip..

iDave is the perfect example of "It's not the destination, it's the journey." His journeys are more introspective and more meaningful than any others I have read. I would rather read one of Dave's RRs - and see how he views the world and interacts with people he meets, Julie and his kids than an epic RTW trip.

I meant it when I said I wanted to be like Dave when I grew up. He can take more from a casual interaction than I ever could. He is an inspiration.
