David Eidell, known as 'Dah-veed' on Amigos de Baja...

I met him in February 2000 when he joined a meeting we had in San Clemente, arriving with Wild Bill... Six months later, he attended my first Viva Baja party:


In May 2001, was my second Viva Baja. Here is Dah-veed with Tom (El Jefe):


In late June & July of 2001, Amo Pescar and I asked Dah-veed to be our guest on the test run of Viva Baja Tours as he had opinions on Mexico tourism and did write for the People's Guide to Mexico blog:

El Jefe and Paulina with Dah-veed at Cielito Lindo.

On our Lost Mission Search, south of L.A. Bay, Dah-veed met a cholla!

Here, Neal Johns (an aridologist) extracts the cholla from David's leg.

This causes Nasa/ JPL missions engineer Mike Humfreville to carefully study the cholla for possible spaceship design ideas....

At our stop in Las Flores.

Desert Rat, Travelpearl, Sarah, and David Eidell pose with Coco at Coco's Corner.

Christopher, El Camote, Desert Rat, and David Eidell check on P.O.T. and the Humfreville's along the rough road to Puertecitos.

I often drove to Dah-veed's mobile home in Tecate, USA to visit. He was dealing with some health issues but was most comfortable being close to Mexico. Dah-veed was not able to attend Viva Baja 3 (May 2002) but he did give me a book to give away as a door prize...

Is this the same David that lived in Bahia Asuncion for a while and then moved to be closer to his kids on the mainland?

I am one of the 5/9s of people with an attention span too short to make it through a list that long, no matter how clever the lines are. At least it is in alphabetical order so I can find where I left off later!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

Sometime in the distant past I recall "Mexicowanderer" as David E., from the early days on Baja Nomads, and have just read his latetest post found on RV.Net's "RVing on Mexico and South America"s Forum," there. He was warning new Forum administrater, TallyHo, recently moved to Zihautenejo, (and others of course) where to find places mosquitos lay her eggs, and some hints on how to beat the heat. He has been a regular contributer to that forum, and shows a remarkable intellect on many aspects of human endeavour, in my humble opinion.

He got quite a reputation in Mazatlan after he left his Tecate USA home on a "walkabout" through Mexico.
Dah-veed would later make an appearance in Mulegé then showed up in Bahía Asunción where Shari was available to help him, often.
He has quite the talent for the spoken language and he was a great automotive electrician.

I'll give him a pass on that. If "true" Mexican history is anything like the "true" American history I learned in grade school, it's VERY open to interpretation.

History is written by the victors-Winston Churchill (or so attributed)

I´m talking about his personal history in Mexico of which 90% is pure bs.
