    After many drinks Dyno discovered that with Scott's flash light that is like the power of the sun we can do this.

    Remember that photo for scale? Well that salute is on the other side of the valley. I think we win for the biggest salute on ADV.

    It's amazing what alcohol, paper,and a flash light can do.

    We were all quietly collecting are thoughts and looking at the views when a wounderful women walked down the street and asked us if we want some coffee. So we took here up on her east coast hospitality. she had coffee and cake for us but I she wasn't expecting 17 of us to show up. She didn't care.

    We thank her for everything and continued on to the site.
    When Drcool's family arrived it was very emotional for all of us.

    Great pics Carlo, really, really nice stuff. I loved the DrCool sticker in that bar on the NB coast. Nice touch guys, Dave would definitely approve.

    Could someone put a location of the memorial stone up. I am guiding a group around the CT in August and would like to stop to show our respect for a fellow ADVer. A google earth pin would suffice, thanks. God Bless Dr. Cool and his family.

    A touching memorial to a very good person (based on the emotion and pictures in this thread). It is an aspiration to be so well loved and remembered, and seeing the pictures of David's smile, I have to say that few people will be lucky enough to have such impact on family and friends. I am sorry for your loss but happy for you all to have had such a person in your lives.
