"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

Are all youse guys just sending the money to the other, unaccountable money place on Facebook?

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...

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

The OP was merely a link to an off-site ...trip report!

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.

Do the waves from my Microwave oven just go straight out? Or do they fan out in a conic shape? Cause I always stand off to the side, never right in front of it, but I still feel weird about it!

I wanted to make a comment but I'm so far behind I have to give it up.

I've been to Peru, I've spent mega time in Mexico.


Nothing here makes any sense.

You people are crazy.

Has the Soup tope reached new heights of absurdity?

Does Jeremy have his site up yet?

Hmm...I think I'll hold off on sending any $.




Since when is a lap top an essential item?

....and especially a $5000 one?


I don't think I'm in their class. The 1%?

I don't recall seeing a $5000 price mentioned. The original laptop was $4000 with software (and this on an insurance claim type of form (from what I could tell)). The price of the replacement wasn't mentioned in what I read.

I can say, for people of my daughter's generation (23) being without internet access is worse then not having air to breathe. Considered a human right these days. :)

(by the way, I've always wondered, is "Dee ee" a male or female name?)
