Oh, I'm SO glad!

It was so nice talking with you last summer. . . I just wish we could have gotten Ian on El Cap.

I think of you and Trevor all the time!

Mark,
Ian's struggle, strength and story really touched me, though I never knew him.

I'd love to buy a couple peckers and cam hooks to have on my rack and to help the family. I'll pay full retail and shipping. Let me know as this thing starts to happen.

Being Ian's wife, the reason I never posted on here before was because this was HIS deal, and I did not want to butt in my 2 cents. I would read it, especially when he would invite me to. And especially when I read it to him when he was too ill to do it himself. So PLEASE, don't think I'm like a snoot or something for just now posting, I just wanted Ian to have his own wonderful world.

Sincere condolescences to you and your son, Trevor, for your loss.
I don't think anyone thought anything "less than" about you not posting. I think you are very brave given the pain you must feel in missing your husband and now reading his posts and then the posts from the circle of support for him and you.
Don't stay away if it helps...

If you don't need/want gear, you can still go here:

I never had the pleasure of meeting Ian, but his struggle and heart were clear to see. Throw in for a fellow climber...

Mark is that the Flash or Sol jet boil and if by full Monty on shipping I'm hoping you mean USPS if it fits it ships for like under 20 bucks.

Let me know which unit it is and ill send a check.

Once again condolences to Michelle, Trevor and the Gill family.

Mark, I live in Redding and could run the gear up to Ashland/Medford area
if need be. Shoot me an e-mail if I can help out.

Regarding the fundraiser, no amount is too small...maybe consider giving up that next cup of coffee towards helping Michelle and Trevor!

Greg Stock will be driving up from Yosemite, through Redding to Mt Hood just a few miles south of me just before Christmas and is going to grabe the gear along the way.

Ron, Silver already claimed the Jetboil.

I am overwhelmed with grief at the the loss of my husband, but I am also overcome with gratitude at all of the kindness that I have been given by SO many. On this site with all you wonderful folks, ALL of whom I have never met in person and other places to, so sometimes my gratitude surpasses my grief, and that is a wonderful moment. Thank you all.
