A little work & a little play – GIS Show

They say “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!” and we absolutely love what we do building custom carts, so even we have to force ourselves to get a little R & R! {but only after all our work is done!}

This past week we had the opportunity to visit the Golf Industry Show (GIS show) in San Antonio, Texas and we wanted to share some of what went on inside the show! Since our flights had us flying through LA, we decided it would be the perfect time to soak up a little time in the one of a kind, San Diego area over the weekend, so we included some of our favorite things there!

With all the work completed we loaded up and flew to San Diego, we stayed in Mission Beach and this is what welcomed us

After our arrival our belly’s were rumbling, so we hit up a street vendor for some local taco’s

The next morning we headed straight for the beach, while a couple other from our crew enjoyed a bit of peace and quiet back at the house.
