Thanks Kid!

Here is a great article by Norman Jameson about the food/beverage vendors along the route.

With 10,000 -20,000 riders passing by your vendor stand within a few hours time, marketing is vital. Norman tells it like it is.

I especially like his recommendation …

The most successful vendors had someone barking out their offerings a hundred yards down the road.

It was on the rainy Day 6 when a youngster was doing  just that to me,when he yelled, “Hot Coffee!”

That allowed me to turn into a driveway which led to the shed that I took shelter in for four hours. If it hadn’t been for that kid barking out their offerings I would never had stopped and found shelter.

Thanks Kid.
