Another year has come and gone. Here in Ely, we are surrounded by snow and friends and family. We hope that this holiday season finds you healthy and happy with a paddling gift or two in your stockings. It has been a wonderful year on and off the water. A year that gave us new glimpses of the wilderness we love, from early ice out to unexpected late season paddling. It was a year filled with solar power and many innovations here at the shop. As we use more and more technology to help ourselves become more efficient and green we are reminded on a daily basis of the simplicity of why we do all of this.
That always puts a smile on our face, because, as we hope you know by now, we do it simply, for you, our loyal customers. It warms our hearts to see new paddlers discovering the sport and adventure as much as it does to see old friends heading out into the wilderness we love.
Supplying canoeing and camping gear and top shelf clothing to canoeists (and kayakers) is a fantastic job. Planning trips and outfitting our friends for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness continues to be rewarding and special as we travel through our clients on adventure after adventure.
As we continue to grow our bookstore online, our retail and online gear offerings, our excellent Northwoods gifts, our canoes and kayaks and introduce new products from the testing grounds of wilderness camping we welcome your feedback and ideas.
Thanks again for a wonderful 2010 and a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you!
