This fall, we provided portable showers at a Nascar Race in Dover. We also did the Spring 2011 race and both times had many people tell us, “Hope to see you here next year!” Nascar fans expressed that if there are no showers available, that they won’t be camping there either.
Kris said, “We have a loyal following and have made many friendships at these events. While the cars go round and round, we are part of the fun and always ready with clean, warm showers so that everyone can really enjoy this event while they are camping.”
Our showers have been on the road during the past three years servicing bicycle tour groups in Wisconsin, Michigan, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
During one particular event Kris said, “As riders were coming in at the end of their day, we were approached by people expressing how glad they were that WE were the shower provider. We got hugs and a big welcome! We already know next year’s location and dates for the bicycle tour.”
After one race, the “half-century” and “century” rider groups arrived about the same time which caused a line to form at the shower trailer. The event celebrates the rides with wine and hors d’oeuvres followed by a nice dinner. Since the riders wanted their showers before food and fun, they were missing the social hour and the goodies. Kurt talked with the event organizer and arranged to have wine and hors d’oeuvres brought over to the shower line. The cyclers were delighted and had a great time joking and visiting with Kurt and Kris while they waited.
Kris said, “Once people use our showers, they are very loyal to us and we are dedicated to serving them. We get to meet and form friendships with people from all over the US. This is what is so great about what we do.”
Here is what festival goers and sportsmen and women have to say about our portable toilets:
“I am pretty phobic about using porta-potties — you know the ones, tiny and dark inside and smelly. I can’t even breathe sometimes inside one so I just plain “hold it”, until I get somewhere where there is an indoor bathroom. I was at a festival recently and well, there just wasn’t a place to go indoors and then I saw some big units all lined up. I tried the portable toilet and this was a whole different experience! It was spacious inside, and it was clean – really clean. I could move inside, plus I was surprised to see hand-sanitizer inside, too.” – Fran, Bellevue
“After fishing all morning on the lake, we came in hot and tired and of course needing to use a restroom. There was a VPS porta-potty near the boat landing. I was pleasantly surprised that is was so clean inside. In spite of this boat landing being a high use area, it did NOT smell bad inside. There was room enough to turn around inside along with plenty of toilet paper, too. This was obviously, well-maintained and cleaned often.” – John, Green Bay
“When my family and I are at an event, I know it’s clean when I see a VPS toilet on site.” — Annie, from Appleton
“We were at the pre-season Packers game recently (August 19)–it was a nice hot summer evening and after tailgating, my husband stepped into a porta potty on the way to the stadium–it was NOT a VPS unit–needless to say, it was an unpleasant experience and it did not even have hand sanitizer. Then I stepped onto the Packers parking lot on the way to our seats and spotted a VPS unit– even on a hot night–the porta potty did not have an odor, it was well-stocked with toilet paper and had plenty of hand santizer. My husband peeked inside, too and was amazed at how clean and pleasant it was. — A & J from Green Bay
