Default Looking for winter location

Hi all,

I'm a long time reader but first time poster. I currently own an off-road touring company in the north and am looking for a winter location. I would rather not have to start from scratch in a new location. But I also do not want to compete with an existing company. Is anyone out there looking to expand their fleet by 8 X2's for only the winter months? Besides the segways you would get me - a very experienced tour guide with insurance to boot!

Anyone interested?

Hi all,

Well a year has gone by since the first post and I'm still looking for that winter location. I'm really not a bad guy to work with!

Please let me know if anyone would like some help for the winter months.

Thanks,
Steve

Southern locations are tough to find because they can operate year round. I already have two locations in Florida and I've been actively looking for a third for two years now.

Perhaps closer to the equator is not the answer. Florida is a great destination, but everyone knows it. What about some place that gets warm when it is cold at home? That means south of the equator...

South America? South Africa? Australia?

Always dreamt of New Zealand! I'm guessing the shipping cost for 11 segways would be prohibitive. (No Doubt!!)

Yeah it seems that there aren't as many 'good' locations in the states for winter months. Take out Florida and south Cal./Az./Tx and there are no perpetual summer locations left.

I've been hoping that my niche with the off-road tours would give me an edge over the more traditional I2 touring circle. Key is having land to go exploring on - public or private.

I thought I saw a Seg Tour business for sale in Morro Bay, CA a while back. I think it was a Gen 1 operation. Jim
