Once everyone gets their virus stimulation checks, they'll be going hog wild buying swag at the RDP headquarters. 🤣

Hotboat was the beginning. 👍🏼
Not to split hairs, but azhotboats.com in 1999 was the beginning. It was also the first year of the poker run (the "Heatwave"). Offshoreonly also started about the same time and got really popular, really fast. I think I'm member #109 over there, joined in 2000.

Back then, hotboat charged you money to join the site - thus the reason they had like 25 members. Later they changes the site to free, I think in about 2001, and that's when it became popular.

River whips is doing something. Only reason I saw it was the guy I bought my old Carrera from had a sticker on his truck. I don’t ever wear name brands. Don’t advertise for anyone for free or pay for the item then advertise for them.

I have a truck that’s built. Someone asks me about it I tell them you go look and find out what it has. Boat they ask ask me the brand I tell them go look and find out.

I do and follow a lot of company’s but they won’t gain anythin from me besides my business.

This is from the radar runs in 2001 at the Heatwave pokerun. I still have shirts in my Havasu closet from at least one of the Heatwave runs.

I have been on their facebook page...they have a whole lot of members. These things are all about people, content and however you can generate revenue (advertising, referral marketing, in-app purchases, subscriptions, sponsorship, merchandise). If they could move even a considerable amount of membership to a different vehicle and keep the stickiness on a app/forum/ect it could possibly be a profitable venture...hard part is having the members. They have 50K so they could increase their stickiness and move them off facebook or both it could be very lucrative. The same sponsors Dave has would be targets of theirs as well. As far as who/what they are...don't follow them closely so can't say..

I don't do the facial book but I could go for some more t&a around here. I understand we all get older but sometimes I feel like I went from 22 to 72 based on the threads I read on here. Buncha old ninnies arguing about nothing at times, then you have the resident wannabe mod gayin up the joint...just sayin
You probably don’t do Instagram either then...but if you do, I was just turned on to puppymelons. At first glance it’s a bunch of pictures of puppies, but then you swipe and you get a nice surprise!! Lol

Half a lifetime ago for 80% of the people in that pic😳
My previous boat was named Heat Wave. Did not know about the poker run when we named it. :):cool:
Yep, that was our brand new DCB in that pic. Almost 20 years younger, but seems like a lifetime ago.

I have a rotten memory, but I believe I started on the Trailer Boats magazine forums. They had a forum didn't they ? Or am I dreaming that?

I don’t understand the animosity either (and I don’t have Facebook, so I’m not on River Whips). There’s room for more then one website, and I’d venture to bet that they all benefit each other.

Those were good times...seems like yesterday. View attachment 859250
Yup.

Remember that poker run at Elephant Butte?

So we put on a run at EB in NM, and there's only like 3 hot chicks there.

Okay, only ONE hot chick.

Later that evening, -------->playdeep<------- this fuccer casually strolls out of a room, with her in tow, with this ginormous shit-ass grin on his face.

LEGEND, lol
