Dave!I spent half the day trying to figure out my schedule for the next four months and didn't get very far.

It's depressing how quickly the days fill up.

But it's not all bad news. The best thing about all the travel I do is getting to meet up with Blogography readers and fellow bloggers along the way...

DAVETOON! Dave Event Posters

If anybody wants to join in, I'll confirm dates about three weeks ahead of time. Watch this space!

  • Daveattle 2 • June 21, 2008. You would think that my close proximity to Seattle would have us at Daveattle 36 about now, but every trip to the Emerald City seems to be packed full with work and stuff, so it's not as easy as you might think. Still, last year was big fun, so I'm making time to do it again.
  • Davelanta 2 • July 19, 2008. Dave-Devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for Coke with Lime to steal. He was in a bind 'cos he could not find the elixir that makes him squeal. Oh well, he did meet with Beth and Kevin, and is looking forward to visiting again.
  • Dave Diego • July 26. I'll be taking a break from ComicCon to goof off with my SoCal blogger peeps.
  • Davecago 3 • August 9. The third year of eating, drinking, and blogging in The Windy City!
  • Dave Louis • August 19. The Grand Prize Winner of Blogiversary 5, Ajooja, has selected St. Louis (home of the first ice cream cone!) as the venue for his event. Maybe this time I will finally make it up that Gateway Arch!
  • Dave York 2 • TBA. I will be going back to New York sometime, and will undoubtedly try to work up some kind of blogger meet in The Big Apple.
  • ??? • TBA. I have this strange empty spot on my calendar moving around in September. I might need to take a little bit of vacation time here, but have no idea where it will be yet.
  • Dave Francisco 2 • TBA. I don't currently have a trip scheduled for San Francisco, but expect there will be one in late September or early October.
  • Dave Antonio • TBA. At some point before the year is out, I need to make a trip to San Antonio. Hopefully people in the Austin-San Antonio area will feel like tearing up the RiverWalk for some TexMex dinner, margaritas, and blogging fun!

In addition to all that, I am planning on showing up at Avitable's Halloween party on November 1st, and have five other trips that are squeezed in-between the ones listed above.

I'm tired just thinking about it all.

But definitely looking forward to meeting new friends and re-connecting with old ones!

  1. Tori says:

    I’d love to do a meet/greet at DaveFrancisco! keep us informed!

  2. Winter says:

    As long as I still have a seat in the Snackiemobile, I will be at Dave Diego! I haven’t been down to SD since I went there to take a class on the state electronic death certificate system. I expect meeting you will be loads more fun than that trip was! LOL

  3. Howard says:

    Davner? Daver? Naw, Dave Denver. Or Denver Dave. That would be cool. Just sayin’.

  4. Patty says:

    Not a big blogger or anything but everytime I hear your going to Seattle I think of coming up as I’m not that far. I would like to meet Sizzle too. ha. I’ll think on it.

  5. September? Perfect time to come to Australia! 😉

  6. Karl says:

    You’re scoring lots of air miles this year, that’s for sure.

  7. Penelope says:

    I’m exhausted just reading that schedule, I dread to think what living it feels like.
    I do happen to know that England is very pleasant in September though ;o)

  8. Belinda says:

    Still hoping for “Dave Rock.” Or “Little Dave.” Heck, for you, I’d drive to Hot Springs or Fayetteville or wherever. But Little Rock has the happenin’ Clinton Presidential Library! And, um…me!

  9. Avitable says:

    So Atlanta is hell? If my schedule is right, I might make the drive up for that visit.

  10. yellojkt says:

    No Dave-altimore? I am so bummed.

  11. Dave2 says:

    Tori… Absolutely!

    Winter… One would certainly hope so! But I make no guarantees. 🙂

    Howard… Probably more like Daveorado! Maybe one day.

    Patty… Sizzle is totally worth the trip!

    Kazza… And boy wouldn’t I love to do Davestralia!

    Karl… Actually, this year is almost certain to be less than last year. No platinum status for me! I guess I’ll have to make due with gold.

    Penelope… Indeed! Davedon has a nice ring to it, AND Northwest offers direct flights out of Seattle!

    Belinda… I don’t have any work that takes me to Davekansas, sadly. 🙁

    Avitable… Only after the devil went down to Georgia!

    Yellojkt… Probably no Davetimore anytime soon… but Daveington DC is a possibility.

  12. kilax says:

    Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Oh yeah… Davecago3! Woo-hoo! 🙂

  13. Matt says:

    Hey – I live in Daveattle!

  14. Lisa says:

    Davecaster…Dave in Lancaster, Pennsylvania only so you can make Dave the Amish Boy.

  15. Brandon says:

    Boston! you have yet to come to Boston! (Daveton?) That’s where you should go. I’m bored as s**t up in this piece! 😀

  16. Dave2 says:

    Kilax… I KNOW! I can’t wait!

    Matt… Then I look forward to meeting you on June 21st!

    Lisa… I used to get to Daveisburg in the Davecaster area quite often for work, but haven’t been in a while now.

    Brandon… No worries. Daveston will happen sometime soon… the city has a new Hard Rock Cafe I haven’t been to. 🙂

  17. ChillyWilly says:

    Wow. That is quite the schedule in such a short period of time.

    I like how Dave Francisco has his tiara on. Maybe by then, the evil snackiepoo will return it to you.

    Maybe another Dave Lake City in the future?

  18. Hilly Sue says:

    Oooh, shall Karl and I wear our costumes to DaveDiego too? Okay well maybe just Karl…I’ll take the pics.

    I’m pretty damned excited! I get to see you three times this year! Three!

  19. Tracy Lynn says:

    DAVEATTLE 2!! WOOHOO! I can not wait!


    I will absolutely be there, Dave.

  20. sizzle says:

    As always, I am up for a Daveattle. Good times are always had! If you need any help coordinating a location, I’m here for you. I should bring Kates!

  21. i’m tired from reading of all that travel you have scheduled. or is it that i am tired from being jealous of all that fun you will be having?
    regardless, may your travels be safe.

    now i have to get over to your store and order me my winner shirt and a bunch more fun stuff. whee!

  22. Poppy says:

    Whenever you do Dave York… I’m there. 😉

  23. ajooja says:

    The ice cream cone reminds me we haven’t mentioned Ted Drewes Frozen Custard on your “must eat” list.

  24. margalit says:

    What happened to DaveField in September? Did you get scared?

  25. Dave2 says:

    Chilly Willy… Dave Lake City is almost assured… probably at the end of July. But it’ll undoubtedly be all work since my time is so short there. 🙁

    Hilly-Sue… Karl can be Robin to my Batman! Sweet!

    Tracy Lynn… I should hope you would be there!

    Sizzle… Sweet! Or maybe we could just have Daveattle AT Cupcake Royale and have nothing but cupcakes all night! Do they serve alcohol?

    Hello Ha Ha Narf… Not much to be jealous of, really. Constant travel gets really old after a while.

    Poppy… I knows! I want my guest-spot on Cereal Wednesday!!

    Ajooja… Ice cream cones were invented in Dave Louis! And I loves me the frozen custard!

    Margalit… I’m not sure about Davefield… but I will make it to Daveston some day soon. 🙂

  26. Mr. Fabulous says:

    Bitch, where is Dave Lexington?

  27. Dave2 says:

    It’s only 6 hours to Davelanta! You can drive that easy!

  28. Whit says:

    I’ve already talked to Hilly and Karl about joining them for ComicCon. I didn’t know you were going to be there. I may have to buy a utility belt.

  29. Dave2 says:


    But please leave the Bat-Gas at home. 🙂

  30. Jeff says:

    Looking forward to Dave Louis! So far so good 🙂

  31. sizzle says:

    Cupcake Royale does not serve alcohol but there are plenty of cool places right near there that do- Ballard, Baby!

  32. Melina says:

    Dude, you’ll be moving my name to “bloggers I’ve met IRL” once you get to San Diego’s terra firma!


    Stay Classy Dave Diego!

  33. Carl says:

    Dave Antonio…. WOO. Gotta show some support for this hot, dry, tex-mex, nirvana in your blog comments, I dont see any other ppl reppin up Sa-Town 😐

  34. Dave man…. I offically vote for Daveotland sep-08 come visit us in the land of bagpipes, sheep, castles and haggis!!! come to Scotland my good man!

  35. Howard says:


    I’m hurt.

  36. Dave2 says:

    Jeff… Good! But Dave Cloud sure has a nice ring to it… doesn’t it?

    Sizzle… Getting drunk and eating cupcakes all night. Does life get any better than that?

    Melina… The prestige is so great from being listed on my “Bloggers I’ve Met” sidebar, that I am seriously considering adding myself to the list, so I understand your excitement.

    Carl… And yet… who wouldn’t want to visit San Antonio? REMEMBER THE ALAMO!!

    Alasdair… My favorite city on earth is Edinburgh. I will make it back to Scotland one of these days, because Daveinburgh simply must happen.

    Henry… I am so sorry I called you Harold! But no worries, I’ve gone back and fixed your name properly. This is all the more reason that you simply must make it to a Dave Event! I almost never mix up the names of people I’ve met in person!

  37. turnbaby says:

    Chicago is only about 6 hours from us in Lexington!

  38. What is this “break from ComicCon” stuff? If I were to head down to San Diego for some hot Dave action, it would certainly be great if that involved experiencing that convention with such an educated guide… No dice? Fine, be that way.
