Truly one of the greats! It was an honor to meet Huell today at the Costa Mesa AAA Travel show. We chatted about UC Davis when I told him I graduated from there and enjoyed his show. I also told him I loved the show where he found the corners of California, but neglected to tell him I was thisclose to his hometown of Gallatin, TN. Probably for the best.
Right before we took the photo, he told the crowd, “It’s getting weird towards the end of the line!”. Those of us who waited over an hour in line chatted about our favorite episodes and laughed whenever we would hear him exclaim, “Wow!” to one of the people ahead of us in line.
