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.

"Hey Locker - I can come over and beat your ass to make it legit. Haha! :) "

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?)

I think its ambidextrous.

I hear you. I have one too. Its an interesting thought. I wonder what they would do if you held a gun to their head and told them "choose one - air or computer"

"Hey Locker - I can come over and beat your ass to make it legit"...

I will be naked and awaiting your arrival...

Mind you...

I've been real sick for quite some time now and have lost a LOT of weight so you MAY not be able to find me...

To help, I'll tie some 4mm accessory cord to my NUTS and attach it to the doorknob...

Just give it a GUD yank as soon as you enter and then follow the SCREAMING...

Thanks!!!...

Good judgment comes from experience.

Opinions from the blogosphere and then judgment. Why get riled up? You know the truth?
