    Great story, Fite. Thank you for sharing it. Gotta go visit that tree someday.

    Here's one of my favorite D2D photos compliments of another ADV'er.

    Top-o-the Midnight Dome right around that time.

    Fite,

    Thanks for the background on D2D. My wife and I will be making our first D2D next June and knowing the history of the ride will make the trip all the more meaningful. Hope to meet you there.

    I'll be going out to see him next weekend and visit my folks. Bad news is that I'll have to pull this thread up and let him read the "nice crap" that someone from Spearfish wrote about him.....then have to listen to the BS of "Well, why don't I get that kind of respect from you..........after all, I've known you since you were 4 years old"............Ca$hman at his best........

    Fite, thanks for the excellent recount. I am sure we blew right by that tree without having a clue. I will look for it next time. A story of true friendship. Dick

    Most people do blow right by it. You gotta be lookin' for it.
    Once you see it there is little doubt why Ca$h chose it.
    When Ca$h first described where it was... it took me an hour of stumbling around to find it.
    Even then I wasn't sure I was in the right place. He said he had placed a plaque, which I didn't locate until my second attempt a year later.

    I keep thinking that one of these days I should record the GPS points to share with others.




    but then again maybe not.
