Great gig if you can get hooked up.

Peru fund: Help Jenny, Meghan and Jed

Current Amount:
$5,855.90

*** UPDATE 1/4/13 12pm: This fund has been reopened for additional donations. Jenny, Jed and Meghan will receive the initial transfer of funds today. Thank you for your support. Please feel free to share this link to others.


As many people are already aware, Jenny, Jed and Meghan have been through a very traumatic experience in Peru. They were attacked, beaten and held against their will.


Thankfully, they are alive and safe and recovering in Cuzco. They have suffered injuries, but will all be able to recover fully physically. The link here is an account of the incident written up by Jenny to an agency who is set up to help travelers who experience violence abroad. They have yet to hear back from them.

We have had a lot requests from people who want to help, most importantly, please share this link and story to anyone who will listen to help expedite their journey home and protect other travelers from the same thing."

Patrick, Riley isn't a doctor, he's a very hard working ER nurse and not a 1 percenter (that I know of) that you say he is.

At first I thought you were an insensitive jerk Riley, unable to take a story at face value... But your long explanation of your reasoning actually makes sense and I am beginning to believe there is either a scam here or some manipulation and definitely missing facts about the "climbers'" story. Mainly the news blackout is interesting to me. I haven't read the whole 700 posts but has their story been validated by anyone?

At any rate thx for posting your long reasoning Riley, you make more sense now.

Kiwis have wings, too, but they don't fly either.

I was seriously considering making a donation to help these hapless adventurers replenish their stock of expensive toys, but then I remembered that I'm still making do with my old iPhone 4 with a screen that's been shattered for over 3 months...

The Supertopo is not triage. By and large, outside of war zones and medical units, much of the world is not triage. This isn't life and death. No lives will be lost if you withhold from snapping to judgment.

I don't think anyone contested whether the injuries were legit, but what their role was in receiving/causing them and the whole money thing....

actually a lot of people claimed this was a made up scam. I think the conversation over their role was a valid one. One thing lost in the chatter though is that they never directly asked the public for money.

"Some cop departments in the U.S. do the same thing and make you sign a release before they "drop charges" and release you."

Any examples of that actually occurring that you can point to?

Again, I posted a link to the population of the village back in the thread, 450 people. 30 people is not the whole village, not even close.

I would still visit Peru in a heartbeat, this story doesn't deter me at all.

Peru is great- one my favorite SA countries. I'd fly there today and go to that very village.

I've been all over down there and have not once been asked for my "papers" by anyone not in uniform.

atchafalaya, I wrote up a long response to your question, hit send and got this:

Error - Forum Thread Not Found
Unfortunately the forum topic thread you've requested can not be found.

The original topic post may have been deleted by the thread's original author or by this website.

The thread is no longer available for reply.

I'm not gong to re-type my response but they are called release-dismissal agreements. Not common in California but more common in some other states. Not always enforceable.
