After 10 years of doing this on the side (maintained a full
time day job all along), I decided to call it quits. If you really want more detail on some
of my reasons, I’ll put a link down below.
For my past customers, you’ve been the greatest. In 10 years, I only had two complaints, one was a woman that thought her tent would be
under a tree next to a stream all by itself. When she showed up, it was placed just
like the pictures I had on my website.
She was extremely pissed and demanded a refund (no joke). The other was last year, a guy had
requested his tent be located by itself with no other tents close by (which
given tent city, generally impossible anyway). When I told him I couldn’t do
that, he told me I provided “poor service for an exorbitant price”
(again, no joke).
But, I digress.
So, what folks really want to hear, who’s doing Bike
Virginia and BMW MOA?
The vendor they went with is Padre’s Cycle Inn. I’ve talked with
Padre once and emailed him a few times regarding BVA, he’s been doing
this almost as long as I, but he handles significantly more events a year that
From his pictures on the site and talking with him, he has
better tents, but keep in mind this year that he does not provide sleeping bags
or pillows, just the tent and air mattress and other amenities, such as
complimentary daily snacks and cold soft drinks, chairs, towels, shade,
etc. Check his site out for more
For the MOA rally, Theo from the Sherpa Packers is taking
the event for 2014. I’ve
talked with Theo many times over the years, he seems to provide services closer
to my package (provides sleeping bags, but uses liners, can’t remember if
he provides pillows). He’ll
take good care of you; check his website for more detail:
Ok, so for some reason I still have your attention.
I’ll have the same email address for probably a couple more years, and
I’ll try to keep this website up and running for another year by moving
it to my personal ISP account in a few months.
