Wow John! Thanks!! Hope you heal up quick buddy!!

Mh2 sent me a lovely donation today! Thank you sir! I will be seeing perry tonight hopefully so i will update the list this weekend.

Thanks to all!!

Jim still has a screaming deal on a pair of touring boots as does climb2ski on his carpet cleaning services. There is also Neebee's lovely deer portrait. We are still awaiting Tami's masterwork! Obviously she is quite busy at the moment.

Nature also has an offer on for sushifest which is happening soon!!

Tami.... thanks so much for starting up this fundraiser for Mike. And also for giving me a place to lay my weary head a couple weeks ago. I'll get those dinner plates you lent Mike back to you and Phil in a few weeks. And thanks for the tasty food Phil cooked up for Mike and I. Just wanted you to know how much we appreciate all you've done.

And of course EVERYONE else on here! :)

Wow! I just got to work & was very pleasantly surprised to see that i had received a package from Johntp, & what a package it was! Not only was the 1962 Sierra guide in there but a care package with bunch of other great books & a couple tshirts made by the notorious "auctioneer" of this very thread! I'll be down soon to divy up these goodies with u Mike as I'm sure you'll be very stoked, or if ur in Whis this weekend or passing thru Squam hit me up!

Thanks again for your very generous donation to this cause John, you are quite a guy to part with such things, cheers!

Repost of my offer. Think it got buried. No takers yet :(

I run my own carpet cleaning business. My standard prices are $45 two room minimum. $119 for 1200 square feet and 10Cents/sf beyond that.

I will go half that price for anyone who wishes to help Big Mike. (upto $100 total for a single job (ie 2000 SF)) All proceeds will go to Big Mike Via US Postal International Money Order. I will photo the money order and envelope and email that to you as receipt.

Mike has sent me the address to send checks to and will confirm when he gets them.

Areas of Service are Reno, Tahoe, Truckee, Carson, Fallon hell anywhere within 50 miles of Reno basically

PM me via ST and I will call. My phone will let me know within 10 minutes of an e-mail via PM.

I am not at all here to advertise my business On CMacs site. Thus I am not attaching my website. I am glad to donate my time and expenses to help a brother out. At half price it will hopefully be a great way to get those nagging carpet spots, traffic areas and procrastinating out of the way for a great price and cause.

hey there say, ryanD ... the deer is still valid, i just left if here for as long it is needed...

had an egret, but it never got any bites so i switched the painting to the deer... more of something seen by climbers, :))


:)

i can't afford the postage, this month... but i could in may... i have used my funds this month, and donated funds to send out special occasion surprises for various climbers, etc...

but you may have it sooner, postage for this size, it is only about
11 x 14 ... so it cost about 8 bucks to mail...

Hey, Neebee...I'd like to talk with you about the egret, but next month, if that'd be ok. I'm starting a new job so I'm strapped right now.

Had lunch with Big Mike yesterday, what a great guy !

I have an unusual item to offer for auction.

One First Ascent of a new route in Skaha. Scrubbed, bolted and ready to go. I had removed the first three hangers and intended to send it when the weather improved.

Iíve spent approximately $ 75.00 - $100.00 in hard costs to equip the route.

Eight bolts long; Climb a short face to a discontinuous hand crack, through jugs over a roof, face climbing to a flaring off hands finish. Probably around 5.11A.

A chance to be forever immortalize in a guide book!
