His books are now scarce and expensive. I am kicking myself for giving away my copies.
That would explain why I received no response. I must have emailed another man with the same name and similar credentials. Happens to live near me too.

Dave lived in Southern California.

I loose track of time. As best I can remember, Dave passed 6-7 years ago.

I wonder what ever become of Enterprise?

I found it. His bookstore has the slide out book but it is a dead link. I just found another link for his books to a bus online seller that looks to sell ebooks. I wonder if it is any good?

I would like to see his bus if he comes to the swarm in February. He does have some build photos on facebook in the skoolie swarm group.

Rickey is an awesome dude. He's going to be at the tiny house show in Orlando coming up too.

Here is the link to all of Dave Galey's publications including his autobiography and a compilation of interesting emails he received over time! They are available in ebooks or you can buy them as regular books in package deals. I was able to confirm the store website from his son(?) Dan Galey. Thanks for the tip on finding it. I just ordered the slide out book and look forward to what I can learn from it.
