Tree Fort in St. Thomas

Monday, March 28th, 2011

In the middle of January the Tree Fort crew split from Michigan for some fun in the sun.  St. Thomas, Virgin Islands was our destination for ultimate relaxation in paradise.  There really is nothing quite like that place – clear warm salt water, green mountains sprouting up from the middle of the ocean, beautiful natural scenery, and fun times with great friends.  Amazing. Hopefully these photos and video from Adam and Jess help capture some of the surreality of the whole thing.

Thanks and More Thanks

This post is a conglomerate of sorts.  Think of it as three posts condensed into one (actually more like three posts that were just too short to post on their own…).

Blog Props

First off we’d like to give a huge thanks to our friend James over at GTWORT (Get to Work or Die Tryin’), who visited our shop location a couple weeks back and posted up a killer review of what he found.  He’s a really cool guy from LA and we were pumped to have him come by.  Check out his write up and awesome photography here.  Also, a big thanks to Snow Biker Chicago and More to Life than Bikes for your support as well.  You guys rock – thanks for keeping us afloat.

USA Today gave us a shout as well, which is downright awesome.  They’ve been covering the manufacturer pricing policies that have started a massive takeover of the entire retail industry, and featured us as one of the companies effected by, and able to overcome, these policies that favor big business, retail giants, and big-box stores.  Check that story and video out here.
