It has been awhile since we have done this and we have a lot of new Members.


Who was the the first RDP member that you met in person, and where?

I am talking about someone you didn't already know....Not your childhood friend or HS Buddy that is on RDP.


I will start. I met John. and HighVoltageHands while out boating with Grads for my birthday in 2008.


EDIT: After thinking about it. I wasn't on RDP in 2008, so that doesn't count. The first person / people I met were Lynch, Nord, & Hammer at the RDP booth at Desert Storm.

First member I met was 3queens out at Lake Mohave in 2014. It was the Friday before our 1st Dam Run at an awesome beach past the powerlines.

River Dave...
Edit, I met Dave and Stacy at the Havasu boat show sometime around 2014 and we ended up talking about V-drive boats because he had a 24 Schiada V-drive sitting at his booth. I told him about my Cougar and unfortunately until this day he hasn't had a ride in it. I hope to make good on that promise soon. I knew he and Stacy were awesome people from the first time I met them and over the years they haven't disappointed. Awesome people!

The first time I met a forum member was at OP6C-V.

It was Rich (JetBoatRich) and Eric (Eliminator454). We pulled in and they had a bunch of hotties on board. More than enough to ensure several were single. I looked at my buddy and said, get the ropes cause we are tie'ing off with them. :D

Edit: I read Forum member not RDP. If we are talking RDP specifically, that would put ol Dave at the head of the line. I met him later that same day with his bleached blonde mohawk and a cast from the water ballon incident.

For ones that I hadn't seen on the river before or buddies with, I think it would be HBCraig when he ordered a set of boards off me. :thumbsup

The 1st one I met was H20Toie (Dan). he invited my wife and I over for a UFC fight.

However, I have known Plaster Dave, Just Electric (Justin) , SFV2RVR (Marc) and Bigamist (Jeff) from the old SFV street racing days. Lost track of them after the racing and was nice to catch up with them again with boats.

I don't remember who was first. I rolled up on a good size group of inmates all at once.

My first event was the second RDP "campout". 2010 I believe. Had a blast and have been hooked ever since.

First member that I met was Shippinguy's wife Holly when I bought my first Ultra. Followed a few minutes later by Ultra28. I met Mike aka Shippinguy when he took me on a test drive at one of the Ultra regattas. Been a great friend ever since.

I would say most of the people that I know that are on RD'sP I knew well before this site was up. I think I met Dave around 2004 at the Elsinore Run What ya brung regatta.

I still haven't met the majority of you clowns. :)

If I remember right, I believe it was HDboatrider, eeerrr, ShockwaveTom, I mean DILLIGAF. :D Met him out at Mojave, didn't realize till later that he was on these boards. Fuck the Giants. :D
Says the LAD's fan....lol

Just boating boards in general....its been a migration to RD's over the years.

I think it was probably Rivertoysjas but not 100% on that. I do know he posted a pic of me barfing over the bow of the boat. I was like WTF and he took it down.

Used to be so much fun drunk posting on all sorts of topics....lol I remember taking on the entire board with matching beer for beer on line and still standing. Another one was when I would get messed up and have a few thousand in my pocket. Would have banter and get liquored up and go to the casinos. When I would come back with an update everybody would just be getting up for work :)

I know that LuckyStrike said the first one that CambellCarl met was me....

That's enough inspiration for me to just drop the mic and walk out

:)

The first forum peeps I met were from the old HB, RRL, etc way back in the 'ol AvengerBabe days...

If I recall correctly, some of the first people I met were ScreamingPete, Tobtek, SDMikey, GrapeApe, BradyBunch and BarryMac...

Hell, I can't remember. It was either RD, Forensic, Roz, or Outdrive1 . Part of me wants to say Paul because he worked on my boat.

I knew DrtyWhat, NastyToysRacing, NiceGuyEddie, and JeffTowz before I was on RDP.
