"Fire" T Shirts

I was hoping some one locally could help me. My family and I will be in Playa the end of May. My 17 year old would love to buy a T shirt to support the fire dept. Does anyone know if Gar still sells the shirts and what are the best days to find him? I assume he is still down by the dock? Thanks for your help, Egg

Before someone tells you to use the search function, Gar was selling shirts a couple hours on either side of noon at the south ferry dock. We got ours last year and hope he is still there.

Yo, Babaloo!
Seriously, someone just posted about this a few weeks ago. I understand he is still there, and with all the hoopla about these shirts, I can't wait to see what they look like. I'd tell you where to go to see the previous posts, but I can't remember what they were called....

Tried to find them last 2 visits. No luck. Frustrating. The FD is on 307, anyone know if you can just go there?

No, they don't have t-shirts for sale at the firehouse. Gar at the ferry dock is your best bet.

Is Gar at the dock on the weekdays only or is he there on the Weekends also? Thanks, Egg

Gar needs a website and a Paypal hookup. Just think of the sales oportunities!

Here I am with Gar the day David and I caught the ferry over to Coz for the day. Gar was located right near the booths where you buy tickets for the ferry. (This was on March 6, 2007.)

If they are the same shirts that I found on 5th ave in Jan, it is a nice, navy blue, with the logo on front and BOMBEROS, Playa del Carmen on the back. That was the only shirt I bought that trip, and $20 was well worth it. The guy with the cart was nice as could be, he wanted to trade patches, but I am with the DMV, we don't have patches, but he had one from Middleton Wi he was looking to unload!!
I've only worn it a couple times, trying to keep it nice....
EDIT: Seeing Nerak936's post, it was the same cart, moved north on 5th ave to work the crowd on a Friday night!

Anybody seen Gar lately?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has seen Gar lately selling his fire T shirts? If you have seen him I was wondering if you could tell me what is a good time to catch him. PS. Before anyone tells me to do a search , I have and was really looking for updated info.
Thanks, Egg
