This is not a Sierra Club event, but I know that all of you would like to know about this.

Our new Jacksonville REI will be opening March 1 in the St. Johns Town Center and will have three days of free food, promotions, etc. for all of us!

      A true continental breakfast is a roll, in bed, with some honey.

      I made it for the danish and coffee. Got a free caribiner of the worst quality but signed up for Pumpkin Hill cleanups and save the ferry group. Some good camp stoves but most stuff was really high priced. A lot of gadgets and gimmicks to carry around when packing light matters most. The chemical cold pack clothing was impressive.

    REI sells a very nice selection of good quality sporting stuff and has stores in many major cities ( LA, DC, Raleigh, and tonight I was told Atlanta ...). Sale priced merchandise is cheaper but full priced stuff means rebates for members. REI also offers some great group travel opportunities ( discounted for members). In 2005 I hiked in the Dolomites with some great local guides and in 2006 did their small vessel Alaskan cruise offering daily kayaking. I have fine memories of both adventures.

    Me And my partner are going early! The first 200 people through the door get a REI camel back water bottle with a gift worth 5 to 100 dollars!! I always love to hang out with fellow outdoorsmen at the garage sales at REI around the country for hours before they open!! Usually learn about local places and things to do and far off fun things!! So we will arriving about 7am. Also if you not amber make sure you join. The benefits are very good, dividends on full price items, the garage sales, and specials all the time. For instance my dividend should be around $500 this year being a member and using their Visa card as well. Their return policy is great and the staff is knowledgable, if they are not REI headquarters WILL fix it. GO TO ALL THE FREE OR CHEAP LEARNING CLASSES EACH MONTH AT THE STORE! EACH TEACHER HAS THEIR OWN KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE PLUS WHAT EACH PARTICIPATE HAS TO OFFER . THEY ARE REALLY BIG ON THE WNVIROWNT AND LEAVING ONLY YOUR FOOTPRINTS.

    If you joined REI in the past ( lifetime membership), you may want to contact REI to update your address. REI just mailed Jax members a discount card offering a 20 dollar discount on 50 dollars of in-store purchases March 1-3 at the new JAX store. This coupon may be shared with one non-member friend for the same deal.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
