A few things

I've been slow lately on store visits. Just 1 in January and 4 so far in February. The problem I am running into is that the nearest store to me that I have not yet been to is an hour drive away. An hour there, 1/2 hour to eat, hour back - I don't have a lot of 2 1/2 hour free spots in my days. So I think the plan will be to move away from lunch time visits and start more field trips where I get two or three at time.

I am pleased to see that the online survey extended past the 12/31/09 deadline first listed. I figure I've done about 30 so far. Some day, I'll win that $25 gift card.

I revisited store number 2 (Now the oldest location - see here) last weekend. Although it is the closest store to me, I haven't been there in awhile, and when I started my quest to visit all the stores I thought I would hold this one back for another visit until some significant came along. It turns out, 3 feet of snow, kids who have had school cancelled for 7 days now (and counting) and no other nearby store is pretty significant.

Five Guys opened store number 569 yesterday. I have visited 64 locations. I am falling behind.
