Shop Small Business Saturday

Shop Small Business Saturday

I know today is black Friday and that itself has become a national holiday, but with all of that please remember to shop at the local stores in your town. They are small businesses trying to provide for there families, they work long hours with very little reward other than to know they are making a difference in the lives of the people who they employ and to there children. We are a small business too and sometimes people forget.  Please remember to shop small and support that local family who is doing their best to make a difference. Happy Adventures,  Heather

Happy Thanksgiving!

Why shouldn't I get my oil changed at a quick lube?

Why shouldn't I get my oil changed at a quick lube?

In a moments notice when you are traveling or even perhaps in an emergency that is fine. The biggest problem is that they are not all properly trained and they are not always looking out for your best interest. We had a gentleman decide to get a discounted oil change at a quick lube.  It was anything but a deal. They broke his oil pan and it had to be replaced. The person who changed his oil had no idea what they were doing and instead of a $25 oil change he got to purchase an oil pan. I know the difference was more than the extra $15 he would have spent here, and no they did not repay him for his loss of time and the repair. Yes it is oil and filter, the difference is the level of training and expertise that goes into it. Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures Heather

The Girls

The Girls

For those who do not know the shop as three yes three black Labradors that come to work with me every single day. Yes that's a lot of dog, but I love them and they are great. They are very well behaved and if you don't like dogs that's okay we have a gate to keep them behind. They are not blood related, we just acquired them over time. Kenzie is 6, Ashley is 5 and Bailey is 2. Stop by, say hi and we always have treats on the counter if you want to give them one.  Do you know how this picture really happened....Jason had a Dorito above my head. You can see the look of pure desperation and the promise of I'll be good.  Happy Adventures Heather  Shop girls; Ashley, Bailey and Kenzie

We get this question a lot. The engine icon is the check engine light. It could be as simple as a faulty gas cap or it could be something serious. The best way to know is to make an appointment and we will check it for you to make sure you're safe on all your adventures.  Happy Adventures Heather

Back to School Reminders

School has already started for some kids and others still have a couple weeks to go.  In honor of that school starting, here is some friendly reminders. With children heading back to school, we wanted to share these safety reminders with you. 1. Watch your speed in school zones! Be aware that school zone speed limits may vary in hours and speeds. Be sure to follow the posted limits. 2. Slow down in residential areas. Watch for children crossing the street and congregating near bus stops. 3. Do not pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. Traffic in both directions on undivided highways must stop when students are entering or exiting a school bus (the red flashing lights and extended stop sign arms are your cue to stop). On a divided roadway, all traffic behind the school bus must stop. 4. Be alert! The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Children walking to and from their bus are usually very comfortable wit ... read more
