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??

Ha! A little bag of Ian! Dang! I'm gonna have some fun with that!

Okay, I'm working on a Donate button on my El Cap Panos website (http://www.hudonpanos.com/);. I want there to be a space someone can leave a message for me and also require that you leave your address. Could someone check that out for me?

Hey Mark, When Ian was apologizing to me for not being more successful financially for us (which I said was BS), he also told me "Trust Hudon", so I do. Whatever you say goes. Whomever you have helping you, if you are cool with them, then so am I. My husband wouldn't steer me wrong. It looks to me like you are actually as cool as he said you were. Thank you from the bottom of my heart...or is that from the heart of my bottom? Oh well, either one works.

Mark is THE real deal! Whenever my aging partner is planning his wall trip I tell him he isn't rigging up anything new till he talks to Mark....

If the situation were reversed I believe the same would have been said about your husband!

Okay,

Things are moving along nicely. I have a friend in Redding who is going to get the gear from Michelle, inventory it and hold on to it for Greg. Greg is going to bring it up to me around the 22nd of December and I'll get it all online ASAP.

Max is buying the ledge, fly, haul bag and a Yates gear sling so that's a nice chunk of change right off the bat! Thanks Max!

I've sold a couple biners and have made almost $200 for MIchelle! You guys are great!

If you send me an email with a request, or Donate, try to make sure you give me all the information I need, paper is starting to pile up here!
