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).

I think Lambone is in Ashland. I think he owns a climbing gym there. I'll get a hold of him.

Silver, look it up at REI, send me a check and Max will pick it up for you in mid December when he goes up to Chico to pick up his daughter.

This is good, a couple people have emailed me, asking for me to be on the lookout for certain gear they want, a couple of other have asked and offered to pay generously for a memento biner so that Ian may climb on with them. Greg Stock may also be able to drive the gear up to Hood River later in December when he comes up to climb Mt. Hood.

This is all looking good!

Just wanted to introduce myself, Michelle Gill, Ian Gill's wife. I've never posted before but I wanted you all to know that at the very end of his days, I would take my laptop and sit at his bedside and read this thread to him. Oh, how it made him smile. I did that on his last night here on earth. What a community you folks are. I can't get on here without crying. Thank you very much for recognizing what a special man my husband was.

Hi ekat!!!! Ian LOVED your postcard from Alaska, he was in the hospital but I took it and read it to him, then put it up where he could see it.!
