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.

Awesome shots, Dean, keep em coming.

It seems that Ian Gill Momento Biners are a hot item right now! We've made a fairly considerable amount for the Gill family and have sold only three biners so far! Keep it up! You all are great!
A note about that. From the photo, it looks like Ian had a rack of biners from his old days. I know he bought new biners from Metolius so the people who pay for an Ian Momento Biner will be getting and old, used biner until we run out of them.

I'm going to investigate a Paypal "donate" or purchase button on my El Cap Panos site. I want one the has the space for a note for the piece of gear you want me to watch out for you. I guess it'll be a Purchase button since that way it will have your address also.

Thanks Mark....good on ya for what you are doing to help Michelle and Trevor.

I live with a view of the wall where I watched my friend Pete Schoerner die in an ice climbing fall in 1996. That experience still haunts me....and for the longest time, the view of that wall brought only tears.

Now, I choose to look out on the beauty that surrounds us, think of those we've lost....and smile for the beauty that was their lives.

Keeps their memory alive in every vista....like this one from the livingroom....rest in peace, Ian....we'll remember....

Mark Hudon, Happy Birthday man. Thank you so much for doing what you are doing for my son and I. Ian felt so guilty about not having life insurance, savings, pensions etc... Thanks to you and to everyone who purchases a piece of gear, between that and Audrey's donation site, we still have a roof over our head. Hey Mark, whoever picks up the gear might be getting a "little bag of Ian" for you to take on your next climb. Dammit, he's getting on that rock, right??
