Did you manage to make any of the grand opening festivities? If so, any stories to share?

Haven't made it in yet, but this one is only about 30ish minutes from me, so I will be stopping by.

@REI-JohnJ - I am really disappointed but I wasn't able to go! AAAAARGH

About a month ago, we suddenly found ourselves with the opportunity to buy a new house and have had to move quickly with packing, inspections, etc. So my past few weekends have been wrapped up in that (haven't even hit a trail in over a month).

But I just tell myself that I can make up for it after the move when we have a larger house to store all the stuff I am going to buy when I finally get to visit. LOL

Congrats on the new house! As someone who recently went through that process I know how time consuming that can be. I hope you're getting settled in!

Thanks. We close on the new one in a week and a half. The new house has a finished basement and the previous owners put cedar shakes on the wall. My wife says it looks like the 70s. I told her it looks like I can go to REI and completely furnish it in a PNW-theme and get camp chairs, cots, and other camping gear.

She doesn't share my vision.

Oh well, at least I tried to add to the new store's revenue. 🤣
