Michelle, I can't believe the "sheeet" you've been through the last few months. First Chatlie then the Boston Marathon crap with your family there. Your Mom is one tough cookie and the apple doesn't roll far from the tree! I wore my hex necklace when I was up in Yose last week. Hung out a lot at the base of El Cap and gave lots of reflections for Charlie and Paul (another fallen STer)

Thinking of you....and Trevor

Thank you Susan! The lovely card you sent to me is on my nightstand. I have "met" the most amazing people.

Brand New Petzl Meteor Helmet anyone? $100 not including shipping. The money goes to a good cause.

Brand new, Metolius big Wall gloves, large, $25.

Anyone?

I have to bump too, for Charlie (Ian), I lost a sister to the Big C in 2011 and my closest brother May 18. My partner Jennie lost her husband to the Big C in 1990 and then her partner in 2004.

I do have a limited medical background, but I often wonder, if we can expend so much on war and negative issues, why not on cancer research? Or in Jen's case, dementia?

Mr Gill, may you rest in peace.

id=303557] One year ago, that's when Ian was diagnosed with cancer. He has been gone for 6 months. Trevor and I decided to skydive in his honor, and at the same time, give a BIG F-U to cancer!!

I'll be bringing Ian's brand new Petzl helmet and pair of brand new, large Metolius Wall gloves down to the Valley with me if anyone wants them.

Guess who was up on the Zodiac on the first week of May---that's right: Ian Gill. Or at least his rivet hangers--and spirit.

I spread Ian's ashes on the Bridge, up on Sunkist, on the summit of El Cap and at the top of Zenyatta Mondatta. He'll wake up to a beautiful view every morning!

wish we could have stuck it out all the way to the top. Smokin hot... 7 gallons of water for 9 gallons left of route.
