Geocaching – is it time to get outside?

Hello folks,

Have you heard of “Geocaching”? It’s not anything new…but I just received an email about Geocaching at our local Arboretum here in Overland Park and it sounds like I might need to go check it out.

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the Geocache (container) hidden at that location. I suggest just using your iPhone GPS system- there’s no need to go buy a separate hand-held GPS device!

There are different rules for different “games”, but typically when you find a “treasure”, then you leave one as well. Or you simply sign a guestbook in the hidden cache and tell all of your friends about it.

Our Arboretum says: “bring the entire family out for a fun-filled adventure. Find out why over 5 million people throughout the world hunt for containers, called Geocaches, using hand-held GPS devices. Brief classroom presentation followed by a search for two Geocaches. Adult presence required for ages 13 and under.”

I think it’s time for the Arter’s to get involved! My kids are older than 13, but heck, I’m gonna make the go anyway.

Maybe it’s time to hide a few Mission Repair gift certificates in hidden Geocaches across the country? I’m going to make some plans. Stay tuned.

Does anyone have any good experience with Geocaching? Let me know!

Take care, Ryan

Slip N’ Slide Time!

Hello M:R Nation –

It’s now June and with this month comes some pretty hot/humid weather. We pretty much skipped Spring here in the Kansas City are and went straight to summer as we do every year, but it just happened so fast this time around. Yesterday, the first day of June, kept true to it’s form and brought a humid 85 degree day. YUCK! If you have kids, you know the dilemma here.  We can’t possible stay inside and relax for a whole 24 hours, but it’s not going to be an enjoyable day outside either. So what does this dad do? Breaks out the Slip N’ Slide!

You remember this from your childhood, don’t you? If not, allow me to give you a frightening description. You basically spread out a very long trash bag in your back yard, spray it with water and allow your children to launch themselves at full blast, head first into the ground. All while hoping they actuality slide and not jab themselves with a stray rock. Sounds fun, right?  Hey, its a right of passage for every child and who am I to deny my children of this? Needless to say, we had hours of fun. However, while I was watching them enjoying this death defying piece of equipment, I kind of got the itch to try it out…

Luckily, I didn’t go through with it. I can’t imagine how I would feel right now, if I actually barreled myself down that “slide”. This thing was made for a 5 year old for a reason my wife told me, and I am so thankful I listened to her:-)

Have any fun plans for the summer? We’d love to hear about it! Email your plans to coupons@missionrepair.com and receive a 14% coupon code! Just know, we might take your plans and try them out for ourselves!

Cheers, Troy

Above is the result of our customer no longer “dealing” with the annoyance of holding their phone 2 inches away from their face, talking on speaker phone or receiving glass splinters trying to type in their pass code! This is simply a much better way to live! Owning something that doesn’t work correctly or needing an improvised method of use is one of my biggest pet peeves. If there is a possibility to make it work like it should, why not take the time to do so? Better yet, why not choose now to repair your iPhone 5C so you can save a boat load of cash in the process?

This deal starts right now and will run through the month of June and will certainly be popular. However, we are fully stocked and ready to help the legions of folks needing this service! If you have any questions about this amazing deal or one of our other services,  give us a call @ 866-638-8402 or email us at sales@missionrepair.com!

Samsung Galaxy S 5 screen repairs = Success!

Hello everyone, good morning!

After some crazy storms we had last night (woke me up just before midnight and I thought I was going to have to chase my truck down the street due to the wind!) it’s now a beautiful morning here in Kansas City. I have moved offices several times in the last couple of years here at Mission Repair and I finally have a window again. Sometimes I wonder if it’s a good thing because it’s easy “wander” and think about the gorgeous day that I can see…anyone up for playing a little golf later? 😉

It’s time to talk about business – not tee times.

We are happy to report that we have a solution for those Samsung Galaxy S 5 owners that have cracked screens. Just as any other screen these days, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is no different- the glass on this device is thin and fragile. Awesome for saving weight, looks and functionality, but don’t be fooled – the screen can crack, smash and fall apart.

We are now starting to get these in from all over the country every day; we are the lowest price on the internet for this repair and are installing OEM parts to ensure that your device comes back to you looking and working as new.

Call us 866-638-8402 if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to take care of that cracked screen. We’re on it.

Have a great day, Ryan
