So, you 'climbers' have made 40 posts to this stoopid thread in the time
there have been 2 responses to the FA of El Pilar del Sol Naciente
thread.
I will refrain from making a derogatory comment as it would be superfluous.

Maybe it's just me but hey... When I travel, I travel with things I can lose, things that if they gets stolen I'll be alright, etc. I never travel with stuff that would hurt me in the long run if it disappears.

Even when I went to Greece to see relatives... I did not bring my computer, or iPhone. I did not bring my wedding ring. I did bring an expensive camera but with the knowledge that if it goes, life will continue. That it was worth the risk to catch the memories. Now that we bought an iPad. I'll travel with it since replacing it is reasonable compared to the MacBook. Plus I have a ipad shuffle for the same reason. Tunes at low cost. If stolen, no worries. Plus being smaller, easier to hide, keep safe.

Why would someone respond to a thread that is merely a link to an off-site TR?

Sorry, Bruce, my bad. In this case it would be FOOKING AWESOME FIRST ASCENT!!! (They didn't use the coefficient of awesomeness)

edit - gud point DMT. It would seem be out of character to acknowledge incredible climbing here.

I too dislike TRs that are simply links to somewhere else. It's not that their trip, or ascent wasn't amazing, it's that they're not interested in participating personally here. I'd rather post to Jefe's boulder/dog thread, or some n00b's first 5.7 multi-pitch.

I will take a look at their gig though. For YOU Reilly, not for them....

"Very cool camper. I want one."

I don't know how you think you can get it to fit onto your bike.....







Speaking of, anyone here seen or used the Cricket campers?

oh, Crowdit seems stalled.


Current Amount:
$4,780.90

The other Hella light is wired to a switch in the camper. It is super useful to see what that bump in the night is. We feel far safer leaving the camper for midnight pee sessions with this super bright Hella light

Hmmm, knott exactly low profile...

With $5000 being spent on a laptop (as opposed to say, implants and crowns for allegedly missing teeth),
may I suggest something like this as an upgraded Adventure Americas vehicle, complete with escort?

With the ability to raise cash at the rate of over $20,000 in a mere few days, cost should be no problem,
knott to mention the luxury of continuing the adventure for several more months as originally planned...

This thread is bringing out the worst in people.

If you don't give a sh#t and want to donate, don't.

They could have made some mistakes, but no one posting here knows enough to say that. Whatever the did, they had enough real stones thrown at them and suffered enough injury without needing the stones and arrows of Supertopo.

This horse has been well beaten.

Careful, Locker would probably pay you for that service. In fact, you might consider taking up a collection first to see what the numbers shake out to. ha ha!

ie. "Once my kickintheassstarterô hits $10,000 the gig gets funded and Locker gets his ass kicked"....LOL.

Jackson... Really lots of poor folks out there. Yes, I am snickering. I sat at an outdoor restaurant in that town and heard so much bragging about climbing this or that. It was way over done. I've been around some great climbers and none ever bragged so much. Then again, what do I know... Luckily no one care or noticed little ole' me. :) Life is Real Good.

P.S. It is really sad and horrible for them to go through such a traumatic experience. I do not wish them or anyone in fact any harm... I just think they should count their blessings and make a run for home. It was a reality check that didn't cost them their lives. They are the lucky ones. Recouping their stolen gear, looking for revenge, compensation, justice... Don't bother, be happy you have your life. It's not Kansas... It's not the U.S. which means laws are different out there. Always remember that when you travel. We are spoiled here.
