I'm laid up for possibly 6 weeks with a bruised/strained ankle as of last saturday, so I am reluctant to commit to a spring date. Then today I got a summons for jury duty for a three week trial beginning in May, then I am off to the Yukon for the summer. So going to bow out of the bidding on this one.

I'd still be keen to tie in with you Jim for charity purposes on Scenic Cruise later in the year when I am certain my injury and fitness levels are taken care of.

Elcapinyor - The honor and privilege of roping up with Mr Doninni goes to you at this point.

Thank you Jim for being so generous, with your goodwill, for the benefit of my friend, Big MIke

Regards,
Bruce M.

Bummer Bruce. Sorry about that. I would like to come visit you. Perhaps I will make it out of my confinement before you are able to leave yours :)

I still think this is a deal and a half, even if this is served for the post pegmatite ramen buffet!

Umm, Mike, it closes 4/1. The Guinness must have had the desired effect...

Ok, so we have a new bidder. They sent me this by email, so i'm assuming they want me to keep their name confidential.

It's actually a really cool bid. 600 bucks for two aspiring trad climbers to learn from Jim for two days to climb cracks. The climbers would be chosen by myself and Tami. Obviously they need to be decent climbers with rope skills which would mean Sport Climbers who have yet to breach the trad world.

Which means, Jim is going to have to hang out with sport climbers for two days!! ;) LOL..

You can still save him from this fate. Bid higher! ;) I'm pretty stoked about this bid. Obviously Tami and I will have to figure out a selection process so that two worthy individuals can be chosen.

So, what say you??
