Expo Shopping: How to get the loot home? :)
Hey all! My husband and I are attending our first RAGBRAI. I grew up in Iowa and have done a lot of running, triathlon, cycling, and mountain biking endurance events but felt like I wasn’t a “real” Iowan OR cyclist until I did RAGBRAI. This is my husband’s first big endurance event. We are really excited!
Here’s my question, we LOVE expos and buy a lot of my running and tri gear at expos when we go to big races. We’re coming from Indiana and traveling with PBV for the week of RAGBRAI. So, we’re going to park in Fort Madison, take the East–>West shuttle, and then shop-until-we-drop at the expo. What do we do with all the stuff we buy? Some fraction will be useful on RAGBRAI but I think there will be lots of fun things I’d like to purchase but not like to haul around for a week. Can we ship stuff home from the expo? Is that something the vendors anticipate? I suppose I could find a FedEx in the area but just wondered if others have faced the same issue. I’m starting to organize and plan the gear we will need for the trip and am trying to figure if I need to save “shopping space” in the duffels or not.
