A great and affordable service center for the outdoor recreationist who has a military connection. Available to service DoD military personnel and families, civilians, and contractors - this fabulous resource is open through the week tuesdays through saturdays with a nice small-scale REI-styled equipment shop and full scale equiptment rental office. They offer at downright cheap prices amazing service and the gear you need for any outdoor adventure - skis, snowboards, snowshoes, bicycles, sports equipment (softball kits, soccer balls, basket balls, tennis rackets, etc.) entertainment, party & event equipment (including dunk tanks, inflatable Jump castles and slides) camping, hunting & fishing equipment, all season equipment (grills, pig roasters, coolers, banquet tables & chairs), flat bed utility trailers, pop-up A-frame campers, bass type fishing boats, pontoon boats & canoes. I've used them twice to this date - for skis over a weekend ($26 for boots, skis, and poles covered from friday through tuesday) and snowshoes & poles ($12 for saturday-tuesday). Quick, efficient, and well laid out. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. As long as I'm working for the military, I'll be using them. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
