Almost the 4th

With only a little over a week to go before the 4th of July one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, take a minute to review your plan and devices before hitting the road.  Make sure the mapping on your auto GPS is up to date and firmware is u[p to date on any other device dependent on a GPS location, like an Approach, or a handheld GPS.  No reason to start a trip and suffer frustration from a GPS that is not working correctly.  If you find out one or all are not working correctly and need to be replaced, give us a call to see how we can help.  A tough weekend for me this past one as I celebrated another birthday # 70 and there is no going back.  Until next week stay tuned and check us out on Facebook and Twitter.


Today starts summer for most of the people in the north but our weather here in Ocean Isle Beach has been summer like for the past month at least.  Well if you are looking to get outdoor for the summertime now is the time to look at our store.  We literally have something for everyone.  Golf season is going strong and the Approach from Garmin is a great tool for all skill levels.  Hiking of course we have all of the current Garmin handhelds.  If you are travelling in a car, or motor home, or motorcycle we have you covered.  Of course marine is always available through our store or you can walk in and take it with you. come and see us if you are passing through we would love to see our customers.  Until next week have a great weekend, and don’t forget to check us out on Twitter and Facebook. 

Fathers Day

Yes you still have time to get Dad a great gift before his day.  We have plenty to offer whether fishing, hunting, hiking, golfing, running or swimming and other activities as well.  We are running our Dads and Grads Sale offering what looks to me like something for everyone on sale with great delivery options.  I know that I am looking forward to it.  I have a lot to be thankful for this year and it does involve my two sons.  Just glad to still have them in my life.  For more information on our sale check your email and online on Facebook, and Twitter.  Back to you next week so stay safe and remember Dad.

Hump Day in Ocean Isle

We hit Wednesday in what has turned out to be a very busy week here at the store.  We are fortunate to have products that fit into more than one category, for example we have lots for Dad whether he is into golf, hiking, running, hunting etc.  Plenty to choose from for all of the activities.  Don’t forget graduation too, we have plenty that we can recommend for the graduate.  Now is the time we start to see our friends from the north and south as schools close for the summer, so if you get to our area please stop in and see us, we like to put faces to names.  I hope to be back with you next week so hang in and I will be back.  In the meantime check us out on Facebook, and Twitter.
