Did you ever notice how seemingly everything reminds me of two way radios. I am a small town person. I grew up in a small Alabama town. Most of my life today revolves around a couple of miles. I work close enough to home that I can ride my bicycle to work. Shopping, the dentist and restaurants are all within walking distance. I can even walk to the beach in less than 10 minutes. I feel lost when I visit a big city.
My Dad is 91 years old. He has an older brother, 2 younger brothers and a bunch of nieces and nephews. My Dad grew up in Philadelphia and that is where most of his family still lives.
My Dad’s older brother is in poor health and we decided to visit Philadelphia before his brother worsened or passed on. My brother Joey lives in Louisville and agreed to meet us in Philadelphia for the visit.
Visiting relatives I had not seen in a very long time was terrific. It seems I was the only one that had not aged. We ate, we drank, we told lies, we drank some more, we had a great time. The visit was wonderful. The trip was exhausting.
The Philadelphia International Airport is huge! Dad and I spent the first hour trying to find Joey (this was even with the help of us talking to each other on our cell phones as we wandered the airport).
Okay I ride a bike everywhere but still I have never, ever seen so much traffic. I was the designated driver (being the youngest). Cars and trucks everywhere. I was ducking and dodging and scared to death. Every place we went the traffic was unbelievable. It took us over an hour to drive 15 miles. We were clutching the rental car GPS like it was the treasure of Sierra Madre.
We drove by a customer of ours in downtown Philadelphia. Jim at the Belmont Center buys 2 way radios from us. I should say we crept by because we were only doing about 6 mph as we past.
All of this is to say it must be very difficult doing business in a big city. To move around is a real challenge. Trying to shop for anything must be a real chore.
I guess that is why Jim from Belmont and hundreds of other businesses and schools across America do business with 2 Way Radio Express. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy. Pick up the phone and tell us what you need. Call 239-601-1969. We love hearing from you.
