People on THIS FORUM complaining about publicly soliciting funds for the cause of the day is LAUGHABLE.

. Asking for money seems to be the new norm now, as is carrying enough electronic equipment to keep you wired and blog about your every move, if they can get people to pay to replace their gear and maybe even make enough money to continue their trip more power to them.

Yes, and many of these people start asking for money before they even leave home. They ask for donations and sponsors to help pay for their trip. Climbing expeditions are the best example of this.

All of those who claimed they weren't climbers... we'll see how many of them are willing to admit they were wrong.
graniteclimber, I can admit that I was wrong assuming that they are not climbers.
My wrong perception was based upon they did not claim lost of $3000 climbing gear in the list of stolen items

I know granite, I was being tongue in cheek. On a side note I remember getting absolutely humbled on a route in the black corridor well below my ability once, that one still stings for me.

All that envy and anger over her having an iphone--they fit in your pocket and I doubt that she was waving it around and flaunting when the attack happened.

A DSLR is electronic gear that is more valuable than an iphone and I'll bet a lot of you take one with your on your trips to places like Peru.

I know granite, I was being tongue in cheek.

I saw that. My comment was for those who would not recognize that you were being ironic.

Hey Dingbat, I don't know if you're pointing this at me but to be clear I say ask away. If however you fail to disclose exactly what the funds are for and offer no accountability to that effect I will personally rip you a new as#@&%e.

Bruce, don't read the Largo fundraising thread. If you do, you will have to rip someone a new as#@&%e, and they'll probably kick your ass.

It's interesting that they haven't updated their blog since thanking everyone for the money??

The best part of this thread is when Riley, desperate for traction, starting citing newschoolers.com. Because the opinions of a bunch of (barely) post-adolescent boys is solid proof of just about whatever you need it to be.

Awesome stuff.

Stupid Americans don't believe anything until they see it on television.

By the the time television gets a hold of the story it's half baked bullsh!t .....

What a cesspool of angry, bitter, judgmental, spiteful, hateful posts. Reconfirming why I want little to no part in this inter-web thingie.

I s'pose I got some benefit out of skimming through this thread...I know who I'd rather not share a beer or a camp fire with.

Y'all enjoy yourselves.
