Looking to get a group order together, to negotiate a discount.
Planning on having them shipped to the different locations where we are. 10% off would be about $20.
I'm interested in getting the GPS one. Anyone else?

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
