What do you think of Ye Olde Backpacker in Port Clinton?
So I was just wondering, what do y'all think of the Port Clinton outfitter, Ye Olde Backpacker? When I was there this past summer (not hiking through- I drove there from my New Jersey home), though they were well equipped, the staff really didn't seem to know much about backpacking or the gear they stocked, and the woman behind the counter was quite rude. I brought about $300 worth of gear (maybe more like $400) to the counter, and stood there, quietly waiting for her to finish her e-mail, and she completely ignored me for almost ten minutes.
My father (who was with me) and I were both preplexed as to why no one in the store would help us (someone did help us find the gear, though he didn't seem to know what he was talking about), as we were both polite, and prepared to buy plenty of gear. We ended up just leaving without buying the gear. Is this common, or was it just a weird day for them? Or whatever it could have been...
