Ian's gear was meant to go up on El Cap, it should do just that. His dream doesn't have to end just because he is gone...

Ian gave us some of the best threads I've seen on supertopo, I have been here since the start. I know some people say this thread is so sad, but there is so much of it that isn't. I hope people can see how much stoke was in the man. Enough to light a fire!

HohMahn. . . Ian's gear. . . I'd find stuff on Craigslist and tell him about it and the next thing I knew, he owned it. . . he was SO looking forward to being on El Cap again.

:-(

Phooey!

We've been a community for long enough now to have weathered the passing of many of our friends over these years together. With each passing we are reminded we too shall pass this way, each in our own time.

And for all the various on an off topic bickering it's in these somber threads supporting and bidding friends farewell where we see the best of us. Ian, glad to have been able to learn about your through your friends here - farewell and godspeed.

If I can get the gear, I have a way figured out that I can sell it, accept payment and ship it out, it's what I do now anyway. I just need to get the gear!!

How about someone in Redding drive it north a couple hours, meet someone,, they drive it further and eventually I'll meet someone and drive it home?

Dood. . . If I had gone to Shasta to ski this winter, I'd jump right on this proposal, but I'm afraid I'm clear up at the Canadian border in MT, these days.

POOP.

If there's anything else I can help with. . . PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

YOU ROCK, HudonStokeMaster!

I'm getting a list of his gear from Michelle and will be trying to sell it for her.

Max has already claimed the ledge, fly and Half Dome haul bag.

Ian had this on his wall near his bed to keep him psyched, his "Wall of Inspiration".

Mark,

Can I purchase something small - a biner or such - just so I can have it on my rack? That'd be cool.

Thanks,

The Guide Tennies are gone but the Jetboil is still available. I don't have the gear yet so I can't take payment and send it to you yet. Email me with requests to keep my eye open for various wall stuff you might want.

Bear in mind that we are doing this to help Ian's family. I don't know how much he paid for anything so I'll be selling it with the idea to make some money for his family. If an item is brand new, expect to pay brand new prices for it, don't forget shipping. If it's a used piece, I'll research its new price and price it accordingly to how used it looks. I know he had a couple brand new ropes, steps, jugs, harness, gear sling (both Yates).

If anyone is driving up to Oregon and going through Redding, it would really be appreciated if you could stop by Ian's house, grab the gear and drive it up closer to me. I'm willing to drive almost to the California/Oregon border to meet you.

Email me and I'll give you Michelle's phone number and email so you can arrange with her to pick the gear up.

Sure, you can purchase any single item you want, don't forget, you're going to pay full boat for shipping.

What I'll probably do is to set up a website, probably on the Elcappanos page, with a list of all the gear and a Paypal BUY button next to it. You'll click the button, make your payment, I'll get an email, pack the stuff up, and ship it off to you.

Tell you what, anyone who spends $500 or more will get a free El Cap Pano of their choice from me (the 12x33 size).

If there is an Ashland Tacohead, we could drive from Chico to > Redding, pick up gear & take it to Ashland...

edit...let us know....
