In desperate need of a vehicle pass.

Son signed himself up as our team leader and said he had the vehicle pass included when he completed the registration process. Packet arrived today and there’s no vehicle pass…oops!

You don’t really need a vehicle pass. I’ve driven for 16 years, sometimes with, sometimes without. We mostly bought one to support RAGBRAI. Don’t sweat it.

Thanks Kathy. I kind of figured that but if I find one it would be helping someone out that didn’t need it. Somehow last year I got TWO but didn’t need even one…and didn’t realize this aftermarket existed.

Our vehicle pass was not included with our packet either, and I paid at registration time. I am hoping the pass is going to be mailed separately.

Hi Kathy – this will be my first RAGBRAI, have been wanting to do it for a long time. I saw your reply and wanted to ask your thoughts on this – i’m coming up from Alabama and planning to have my daughter and her boyfriend drive my vehicle and me each night and camp together (they don’t want to ride but are looking forward to seeing Iowa). is that possible without a vehicle pass ( i didn’t get one unfortunately at registration and don’t seem to be able to find one now) – Do you think they can they get close enough to the campsite to drop off the gear each day and then park somewhere else ?

Thanks ! Chris

thanks for any tips! Chris

Oh Chris honey, bless your heart. You and the kids are in for a wonderful adventure.
I will be glad to share any info that might help.
They will be able to go pretty much anywhere.
How about we email?

I have a vehicle pass that I purchased and won’t be using it. Let me know if you want to purchase from me. Thanks.

Thanks Corisa – i found one already a week or so ago but really appreciate the offer!
