too bad you didn't whip out your pistol and a bottle of Jack, shoot the top off the bottle with a loud war whoop, take a big swig of the liquor then spit out broken glass and blood and whisky
and shout at the top of your lungs, H*** F****** YES I LOVES ME SOME JESUS BAYBAYYYYYYY.
THAT could have been priceless.
cheers. (and pass me them snakes)

A significant number (likely the vast majority) of my customers already have their own gear. But, that's not really the point of this service.
Last week was a hot one. Record breaking ice usage, 938 lbs consumed in the Sherpa camp.
And, with low temps at best 74 (some nights didn't get below 80), the sleeping bags were just about ornamental in nature.
i went to a BSA International Rally on the Isle of Man a few years back, and somebody there provided pre-set tents for folks like you do. some of us rolled off the Ferry (from Liverpool) at MIDNIGHT in the pouring rain. i was lucky and managed to follow some folks who rode directly to camp- only a couple miles from downtown Douglas. some however weren't so lucky and got spun out, wound up riding around the island before finally finding camp. at least one couple i know had a tent reserved. imagine their relief at simply getting into a pre-set tent and having a dry space to sleep that night.
i wound up rolling out in the Grand Marquee (big circus tent) on the stage that night and setting camp in daylight the following day.
for those who purchase your services, i am QUITE certain it's totally worth it.
in all regards.
2. We have always been special, ask our mums.
3. Good idea, but we'll still be at the Big Party.
4. True of most, come party of tarmac with us though.
You are invited to our little party, we'll be camped next to the GS competition track we are building.
Special? Yea, there are a few I would classify as "special" but good solid, welcoming folks, all. Before you judge too harshly, please stop by and join the fun.

Who would even ask! We're NOT created equal,as in Airhead Central, The K Owners group, GSGiants, The Ambassadors and who knows all else gather in similar fashion. Join one, my friend, stop cry'in. I happen to love the GSGiants and figure to camp with'em when on my GSA. My Airhead gets another part of me active. If you're solo and want to be, thats always fine too, just don't get into trouble picking fights where none's needed. Group camping has always been the norm, just in certain areas pre determined at rallies. Find 'em, be happy with all your pals. Randy
I will be one of the early arrivals and I can save you a spot. You need to know the following;
1. I snore
2. I drink
3. I smoke cigars
4. I get up early
5. Did i mention I drink?
6. Chicks dig me.

Sounds like my kind of camping spot. I never go to a rally without a fully stocked travel humidor. Haven't been able attend a national since West Bend in 2007.

I'm a newbie going to my first rally this year but if the rules say no saving spaces I'd think it should be enforced for all. I'd like a spot in the early to bed and early to rise long distance riders section this year please.
I staked out my spot yesterday. Nobody better mess with my Biohazard Warning Area tape. Let me know if you want a spot too, right now, I have about a third of an acre for sale.
