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!

Purchases of Ian Gill Momento Biners continue to roll in. We're going to keep Ian pretty busy checking out all the places his gear is going. You all rock!!

I should have an inventory in a week or so. I'll post the list ASAP with my suggested price. You can "Donate" and then email me which piece you want. Don't forget that out of your donation comes shipping and Paypal fees. I get the boxes free from the USPS but shipping is simply expensive and I can't send a ton of time figuring out the absolutely cheapest way to send the item to you.

Mark, when you get it all set up, I was thinking I could post something on Facebook as well, with a link to your site....what do you think about that as another way of getting the word out?
Thanks again, this is awesome!!

Audrey,

When you go to someones profile you can see their photos.

so I just grabbed the photo id and added it to the photo syntax.

I think you missed a step in getting the photo to your post. it uploaded, you just didn't finish the process of posting it to where you want it.

Bump for Ian

Buy some of his gear from Mark Hudon or donate at this link to help his family:

no amount is too small, even the price of a cup of coffee goes a long way!!

A big thanks has to go out to Cory McCandless and his wife, Shelley for going over to Michelle's house and getting Ian's gear. It was hard for Michelle to see such a connection to Ian walk out the door, I'm sure, but Cory and Shelley are great people and made her feel as good as they could.

Further, Cory spent a good amount of time photographing the gear and making a pretty good detailed list of it all. I need to work the list a bit before I post it here and I'll try to get to that tonight.

If you have not read this thread and Ian's story yet, I guarantee you will be touched by it once you do.

Here's a picture of Ian's Wall of Inspiration. You can keep his spirit alive and help his family with the financial toll they are facing by purchasing some of his gear from Mark Hudon, who will be providing more information here in the next day or so.

Or you can donate to Ian's fundraiser by clicking on the following link. No amount is too small, even the price of a cup of coffee goes a long way and is so appreciated

peace to all

Tell ya what, Ian started emailing and calling me right around Thanksgiving of last year, all this gear he bought is partially because of me. It's going to be sad for me to take possession of it, see it in real life knowing what it all meant to someone. It's only gear, but don't we all lovingly fondle our gear sometimes, remembering moments on rock, in the mountains, with good friends?

Dang.

You inspired him and helped him so much Mark. And while it may be only gear...it is so much more than that... it symbolizes dreams and hopes, being inspired and inspiring others, perseverance and so much more...and nothing brings that home more than this, Ian's journey, of which you were/are so big a part. Heartwrenching and heartwarming at the same time. Dang is right.
