I sold boats at the McCormick boat show in Chicago for 10 years
Between the parties after the show and talking to a gazillion people I didn't have a voice left or a liver

When I was 18-23 years old I worked the San Francisco Boat Show at the Cow Palace in the Sanger booth...It was the time of my life. We were a Bay Area Sanger dealer and back then the booth work force was Larry Schwabenland...Maurice Tarvin..and a host of other special people. One year they brought in Dwight Bale and some other drivers I don't recall. Could not have been a better five days for me...

Doing car shows, sometimes the booze was to help deal with the people;) I was never wired for the sales and people thing.

Used to work the LA show when it was in LA and was legit. It was exhausting to say the least! Get some rest old timer! :D

Pretty much slept all day today other than going to go get my kids from school. Stacy has been in and out of bed all day as well.. She's going to bed right now and it's 8pm.

We definitely should have stayed the extra day and just relaxed before the drive home.

Who the fu@k is DJ?? Your ass must be tired! You almost always end your post with RD! :eek::D
That's funny shit...He forgot he was dealing with the hooligans here that know him as "River Dave"


The important folk probably refer to him as "Dave Johnson"

He needs another nap;)

When I was in the porn business we would have 2 big shows a year in Vegas and Hollywood Florida. I don't remember besides some of the greatest days of my life. But I couldn't walk afterwards because of all the standing then the funk of meeting everyone.

Good times.

Take a couple laps in your pool, you’ll feel brand new.

5 days of the Boat show beats you up pretty good..


We have a ton of content that we will be uploading for the next several weeks leading us up to Miami!

in the meantime I’m going back to bed..
You Literally posted "2 weeks". :p:p
I hope the "rehab" device puts an end to that quote.
New personal assistant? :D

Not sure I get it.. are you suggesting I post everything from the boat show immediately? It would be impossible. It takes days to write the stuff?

Kids are finishing unloading and the girls are putting everything back. I just got back from returning the trailer to @Nordic Boats (Thanks again!)

life should be more back to normal in a few hours.

I had hoped to have a bunch up today but unloading took forever then I had to get kids from school and now I have to run up to sailing hawks to go film a baller pad for Team rdp.. it will have a good start tonight, but I still feel like someone hit me with a truck. Lol

I don’t know if I caught something at the boat show or what.. but I have literally been sleeping since Monday. I slept 20 of the 24 hours yesterday and just woke up right now.. and I could easily go back to bed. I don’t feel “sick” just really tired and weak.

i have had the cough and little bit of sinus for a month but while it’s lingering I feel like I’m over it..

I’m feeling alright today but again just slept for 20 hrs.. I’d say the boatshow kicked my ass but four days later wtf?

Same here.
Had a chest cough and pounding headache.
Went to bed the other night at 5pm and still in bed at 9am the next day.
I tried having coffee this morning and went back to bed
I'm wore out
Good thing I know a pharmacist:)
Mrs EZ knows it's serious if I'm still in bed past 8am

Maybe try some hoes and blow?
Heading to dirt this weekend to beat up on the Jeep and drink around the fire. A large quantity of Vodka, Port, Rye Whiskey should kill what I have :)
