The My Chauffeur
In 1998. they began with not a lot
more than a daydream and tolerable appearance. How did these two Portland
boy's grow to be the greatest airporter barons in the world?
"Dig" Colby and Antoine Sekonius had been classmates for a
while. They always
wanted to start a venture together. Something unusual and exciting that would work with the
extraordinary Portland business environment. Something for the history books.
a moment of fun with one of our
lot of searching under boulders, bourbons, and assorted chemises, they
discovered what they were searching for... Airporters!
his stunningly gifted business acumen, and Antoine with his apparently
continuous stream of acquaintances, set out to conquer PDX.
encounter with some Jesters and flute players, they were ready to set up shop
in the "underbelly" of Portland --- the Northeast!! There was only
one dilemma, neither Dig nor Antoine had ever done airporters before!
So they left
for the sunny San Francisco suburb of Napa, California, where they met up
with some airporter masters, and learned about airporters from the
ground up. These grisly old airporter masters knew how to do it and
were hardly agreeable to hand over their secrets at first. But the charisma and
tolerable looks of our champions in time won over the airporter masters, and
the secrets were revealed to them. We were surprised when one of them
said, 'hey Antoine, strap this one on' referring to the 'exotic' bottled
carrying tote bag used to transfer the water & soda's from one limo to another.
Oh California... one of the secrets of the trade, and it was a good laugh.
a lot: like how to turn corners, about ac-celeration and the proper handling
of the sparkling wine flute for those special airporter occasions. Also the intricacies of the gradual
slow-down, and when and
when not to use such phrases as 'Hedonistic and round, characteristically
developed' when referring to the airporter limo. And countless other tricks of the
trade were now in the brains, hands, and notepad of Dig and Antoine. They returned to
Portland amusing the locals with tales of Arnold Schwarzenegger busting up an
chauffeur and saying 'If it bleeds, we can kill it." and 'I'll be back!!'; a Banaban documentary on
Hindu Television featuring My Chauffeur; and the foolish, crazy times in
Napa Valley -- opera singers, ventriloquists, Burgundian Aristocrats, a guy
who somehow kept a bunch of plates spinning atop a wooden pole,
Chinese acrobats, and dogs who climbed ladders. Oh California... Portland learned
of these tricks and My Chauffeur soon became the best airporter company in the world,
flying in some 'Manchu’s bark/Cinchona' potions from down south, attaining
the 'bricks and mortar' of their trade, the boys started playing around
with their techniques that soon became known locally, nationally, and
years later, folks
are chatting about My Chauffeur Airporter in Somaliland and Samoa Island. China
has some trendy people wearing the latest My Chauffeur bikinis, and
companions have shared a My Chauffeur airporter tale or two off the Ivory Coast and Senegal of
all places! I'm sure some parts of the world have yet to be infiltrated. Stay watching!
Dig or Antoine or any of the My Chauffeur chauffeur's can discuss with your group specific
topics including, but not limited to:
What are the ancient airporter
Chauffeurs of our Company.
our chauffeur's so priceless?
What is Airporter Terroir?
And the concept of a
Airporter Vigneron of all
on a more serious note;
My Chauffeur is a
small boutique airporter company offering the highest level of
luxury limousine service. Our primary goal is to provide a private, relaxing,
luxurious, and authentic airporter experience. And we mean REAL luxury.
Our executive-class service offers a roomy, deluxe, air conditioned limousine or
town car stocked with refreshments (not a 9 passenger van for 8 guests and a
driver - that's not our idea of luxury or comfort)...
