Kim and I had the opportunity to work an event with REI (Recreational Equipment Inc.) at the Great Ohio Bike Adventure (GOBA) this weekend, and no this is not a sponsored post (though, REI, if you are reading this we could totally use some sponsorship). My dad has been an REI member for as long as I can remember and I became a member a couple years ago on the way back from a climbing trip in Kentucky. It was a prime time for me to join because they had a killer deal on a GoPro bundle for members and it contributed to the annual dividend which essentially covered the cost of the membership. I’ve always been a big fan of the company and it was great to actually work alongside some employees and just hang out with people who enjoy the outdoors. Customer service is their top priority and I really enjoyed contributing to their reputation. If you are ever in the need for a some adventure gear, REI has the goods. They carry everything from GoPros to tents and packs to animal accessories. You can rest assured that you’ll be getting a quality product from a quality company.
