Spring is quickly coming your way.

Another week here in the south is ending for me today but I just wanted to take a minute to write to the people still stuck on winter in the north.  Your spring is just around the corner and I am sure that the golfers up there, if you haven’t taken a trip south to […]


Another reminder about Dads and Grads Season

It is still that time of year when we think about Dad on Fathers’ Day and someone near and dear who may be graduating, and starting a new chapter in their life, whether it is from high school or college. We definitely have something for everything here at The GPS Store from auto navigation, golf […]

Off I go to the Adirondacks

Yes that’s right my wife and I are going home for one week. It will be great to breath air without humidity for a change and cooler nights too, for sleeping, air conditioning is still a luxury there and not a necessity like it is down here. Fishing season is in full swing everywhere now, […]


A long weekend that saw it all.

Yes indeed we here in Coastal Carolina saw it all this past Labor Day Weekend. The weather on Thursday night thru Friday night late was terrible because of Tropical Storm Hermine. Tremendous thunder and lightning on Thursday night and heave rain and wind Friday morning until late Friday night. Worried on Friday because my wife […]
