Welcome, Rusty

One of my goals with the Texas Adventure Company is to offer yearly dual sport rallies in a variety of locations. The biggest challenge I have had with meeting this goal is limited vacation days and not enough time to fully recon potential riding areas. Unfortunately, I have to work for a living and can't devote myself full time to organzing dual sport rallies.

I finally realized that I needed help in order to continue. So, I called Rusty and discussed the situation and he has agreed to sign on as a partner.

Going forward Rusty and I will be working together to organize and run the various rallies. I'm excited and pleased to be working with Rusty and look forward to expanding our service to the dual sport community. He is an experienced adventure rider who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table.

Riders, please join me in welcoming Rusty (Woodbutcher) to the Texas Adventure Company.

Re: Welcome, Rusty

Richard_, so how many margaritas did I drink before I agreed to this? Actually, with my job situation this gives me something to do and hopefully I'll get out and do some more scouting work. Hopefully we will branch out and get some rides planned for New Mexico and Colorado too. It's going to be fun to help Richard grow what he has started.

Lori, thanks for the vote of confidence.

The dynamic duo has arrived...

Congrats much as you know about correct GPS use, it will be a great complement to Richard's route planning.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

That makes two of us.

I hope your ankle/leg is healed up and ready for the next dual-sport venture.

Re: Welcome, Rusty

Last week was my second TAR and the first one that I got a chance to meet some of the guys, including Rusty.

I think Rusty will be a perfect addition to ADV and will maintain the high standards that Richard has set. I believe we are very fortunate to have two people willing to work this hard for the benefit of others.

My sincere thanks to both of you guys.
