“Ramble on” – Robert Plant
Rob has been with ARG Wholesale since 1848. Fleeing the great fire of Pittsburgh and the destruction it brought to his homeland in 1845, by now an old man, Rob sold nearly everything he had, save for an extra pair of pants and a “windshield”, an invention he had created. He had failed at selling any windshields, as no one had heard of an automobile before.
He rode northwest, from Pittsburgh, hearing tales of gold nuggets the size of a man’s head laying along the riverbanks. Alas, he only made it as far as the bow river east of the Rocky Mountains. His oxen exhausted from the journey, and winter setting in, Rob would have no choice but to eat them to survive. Fortunately, he made shelter, and the next spring, traded with locals. In the coming years not much is known about Robs life other than legends told by the indigenous peoples in an oral tradition, handed down from one generation to the next. What we do know is eventually his humble trading post would be known as “Fort Calgary”, and the “windshield” he had brought with him would be all he would need to set up his new company. ARG wholesale. By the early 1900’s Rob finally had someone to sell his windshield to. He took his fortune and had more windshields made, in the local tradition, with the clay like, sandy soil that lined the bow river. Some of the local elders claim that it was this clay like, sandy soil which helped to keep Rob looking young. They said he wandered the woods under the full moon, where he turned into an owl, which would lay an egg in the river bank, from which a new Rob would hatch. Starting the cycle anew. Whatever the case, Rob is still there today, selling windshields and dreaming of Gold Nuggets, the size of a mans head.
