I love reading about strange businesses like this one. Dustin Noffsinger sells Christmas trees during the winter and camel rides in the summer. The New Review has more:
Since Al moved from Southern California to this rural North County town two months ago, the 7-year-old Arabian camel has spent much of the past two months adjusting to wet weather.
â€œWhen it rains, he runs under cover, but he’s getting used to it,â€ owner Dustin Noffsinger said.
Noffsinger, 33, who used to work with camels at Wildlife Safari in Winston, bought Al at a camel dairy in Romona, Calif. two months ago. His new business, Dustin’s Top Notch Camel Rides, opens next month, and he already has Al booked for two family reunions and a Fourth of July celebration.
He plans to buy a baby camel from the same dairy by the end of next summer so Al, which is short for Ali Baba, will have a friend.
