Good Samaritan Needed

I'm looking for a good samaritan who can help me out with picking up a CCR Silent Auction donation from:

Rider Magazine
2575 Vista Del Mar Dr.
Ventura, CA 93001

Mark Tuttle, Editor in Chief, has informed me they have a bunch of gear they can donate to this year's event, they just need someone to pick it up.

Is there someone who can help me out? Shipping costs will be reimbursed.

Thanks!

Thumbs up Re: Good Samaritan Needed

Me, Me, said the flea!
I am not too far away from Ventura so I can take care of this.
Hi Sweet Pea, do you know off-hand if the donation will fit on/in my LT or if I need to take the part hauler?

And then she left me... She said I was never home!!!

Re: Good Samaritan Needed

C'mon now Gilles, you know I live only just down the road from them . . .

Of course, I'm in Portland at the moment, so maybe you'd better make the pickup.

Have fun.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Good Samaritan Needed

Gilles & Ken - I just got off the phone with Mark and it sounds like I could really use BOTH of you to pick up the donations. The amount of items will not fit on the bikes, so a car/truck/van will be needed.

Here's the scoop - They will be moving their office in a few months. Most likely they will have more items for us, so he suggested that the items be picked up just before the move. This will be in a couple of months.

Mark has asked that I provide him him the names of anyone doing the pick up so that he knows it will be going for the CCR Silent Auction.

Let me know if you both are still able to help me out.

Thanks guys!

I have a Benz Wagon so I can take a lot of stuff off their hands.
Now we have to figure out shipping as it may make more sense for us to ship directly out of their office as they move.
Let's discuss the "where to "shipping address. You can PM me if you prefer.
