    Thanks for all the compliments.

    There has been some confusion on who's providing the service next year, me or the Sherpa Packers based in Colorado. Our services are fairly comparable, but my history has been established with the MOA Rallies.

    Last year when asked, I wasn't sure I would be able to make the trip to WY (which year wasn't clear either), but I'm currently set up to handle pretty much anywhere in the US of A (well, not HI or AL) now.

    Theo from the Sherpa Packers (coincidence, eh? I'm Ted, he's Theo, he has a dog named "Gandolf", my cat is named "Gandalf", etc) and I have been talking, and we're both in agreement that I'll be the one providing support next year.

    Theo is supporting the Top of the Rockies Rally.

    I'll also be providing a 200 tent capacity next year (vice 100 like the past few years). If I sell more than 200, Theo is willing to drop in with some of his inventory.


    See some of you again next year!

    Ted,

    I used and loved your services in Vermont last year. This year I was riding solo and your services were not neccessary. I meant to stop by to say hello to you in Wisconsin, but never got around to it.

    So.....Hi Ted, how you doing?

    Thumbs up Outstanding

    Ted, great job. I rolled in Weds nite from a 2 day ride from Colo Springs and found my tent (#41) with no problem. Slept great all 4 nites. Sunday I got up and hit the road early no hasseling with breaking camp. As a rally virgin and traveling alone it was a great way to me people.

    200 tents? Wow!

    I've been "sleeping with Ted" for several years (since Lima) and it is the best. Though I feel a little like everyone else has now discovered my secret.

    Laura and I thought the Sherpa tent was great. No hassles for us, plus lots of little extras. Thanks Ted.

    Ted -

    As I indicated to you when we first arrived - the gear was great. I'm not a camper, but I was very pleased with the sherpa set-up, and it's so nice to have it all set and waiting for you when you pull in.

    We'll definitely be using your service again!

    Thanks for a great experience -

    Reg and Carolyn Bowley - Tent #1
