I like Dave as a person, but he was only one of more than a few, more than capable woodsmen in attendance. Being on tv does not make him any better or any worse than at least a dozen of us who were there.

No doubt bro, it was a group effort for sure. And everyone contributed to the event. There was more than one person I was excited to meet and alot I wanted to see again. Was a mind blowing ordeal all together

But Being on tv makes him famous. That's the difference.

Yeah, well, I got to spend a couple more days with him and he is just another guy.

Yup, I've swung to both sides of the spectrum (fan boy and don't like him) over the last number of years, but eventually settled on that just another guy conclusion too. Hence why I didn't really go out of my way to interact with him more than any of the other attendees.

Put more effort in interacting with Mr. Black n Yerks n Shnick n all the other miscellaneous riffraff, to be honest.
