Spring time in the south

Well after what i would call a cold winter in the Carolinas we are now definitely in springtime.  Weather to be in the 70’s for the next 10 days so i would say spring has sprung here.  I hope the weather is warming in the north and I don’t mean to rush those who still want to snowmobile but put them away and hope for an early snow in November.  It sould be the start of off road exploration at least from what I can remember in the Adirondacks.  We would always start trying to get in to the hunting camp we boarded up in November, to make it a fishing camp the first of April.  I hated those black flies but remembered they were part of spring, whether fishing trout or bullhead.  Please check your equipment before you head into the woods by that I mean GPS and mapping primarily.  It is definitely safer to head out on back roads or mountain paths with something that can aid in getting you out.  Well until the next time stay safe and remember April Fools is close.

Mid week hustle

That is correct.  We really hustle on Wednesday to get everything out the door we can because of our two day delivery specials which would get customer orders to them before the weekend and everyone wants that.  The young men and women in our shipping and order departments really get moving early on Wednesdays to make our customers happy.  I have to admit that there was a couple who came into our store on Monday and just happened to be 3rd in line and the two customers in front of them needed some tough questions answered.  Well to make a long story short they left before I could get to them and answer their questions.  I apologize if you are reading this blog, and hope that you would give me another chance to help you.   Some boat show orders are still shipping because of manufacturer delays so if you ordered and one of our shows it will be there as soon as we see it.  With Easter fast approaching, if you are travelling please be sure to check your GPS’ to make sure they are functioning correctly and their mapping is up to date.  Remember it is time to relax not to be frustrated with incorrect directions.  More next week, hopefully with some Easter deals.

Soon to be all present and accounted for.

That is the truth our spring boat show season is officially over and all show people are back at work, a bit groggy from an overnight drive, but back.  We had a great show season and met a lot of new customers and made a lot of new friends and saw a lot of our old friends which is always great.  We enjoy seeing people with whom we met years ago that continue to trust us with their marine electronic needs.  It is good for Scott and Brian to get home and be with their families and get back to normal.  Our shows were a great success as they seem to always, be and our store benefits from the exposure we get.  It is Monday as well and of course our shipping and billing departments are busy getting our weekend orders out the door as well so our store is hopping this morning.  This will be the only time i write this week as I am off on Thursday and Friday to go with my wife to a conference she has to attend in another part of the state.  I will get to explore Statesville, NC on Friday while my wife is in the conference.  I wish everyone a great week and I will be writing again next week.
