At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

My son and I went yesterday; a bit overwhelming haha ... it was quite crowded but it was good to see the enthusiasm.  We enjoyed talking to the vendors in the parking lot during the afternoon event.  

We're mainly campers-backpackers and it is great to be able to see, feel and try some of the more specialized gear that you just can't get at any of the other stores around here.  We also like that you'll be investing in local recreational opportunities.  This area, while not exactly the Rocky Mountains, has abundant easy access to so many different kinds of trails.

I am also hoping that on a seasonal basis you bring in some kayaks.  I've been wishing I could see one of the Advanced Elements inflatables in person. 

Anyhow, it's great to have you here and we'll enjoy coming back.
