How did you come up with your moniker name?
Back in the early 90’s a friend and crew mate of mine was looking through my benching archives and said ‘’Damn Dave you have so many flicks, they should call you The Kodak Kidd’ Right then, and there, the legend of The Kodak Kidd was born!
What crews do you currently push?
In the moniker culture Folklore Brotherhood which is more a movement and testament to the culture, than a crew. In aerosol, BCJ-Box Car Junkiez, NSF, Fr8ophiles.
How long have you been putting your name on trains?
Since late ‘94, ‘95. Just about 20 years.
Any changes you’ve noticed during that time?
A lot of changes. More writers on the scene than before. Obviously different boxcars. The paint has changed. Trains are a mess nowadays. So much stuff riding on them that shouldn’t be there. The rules have changed..THERE ARE NO RULES ANYMORE. The respect factor is a huge deal to me with the newer generation of freight writers.
If you were hopping a train, what would you take with you?
Water, rain jacket, small pot and spoon. Lighters, camera, cell, and sleeping bag
If you were hopping a train, where would you want to go?
Out West for sure, and also through the south west
