well 1st off let me say that I am blown away by all the generosity that has came from my request.
once again this BPL community has blown me away with there kindness and help.
however it may be tonight or possibly tomarrow before I will have enough time to sit down and really go through all the items offered and put together a list, the only net access I get is very limited to when my sister is home and I can get a ride.
with that let me offer my sizes for things to help out some
I am right at 6ft tall a nd weight around 200lbs I normally wear large and Xlarge clothing my shoe size is 11 to 12. someone here offered some icebreaker wool tops and bottoms. yes I need them they are actually some of my most missed gear.maybe a light weight and a mid weight set would work out best.
anyway I will look through all the post when I have a little more time to do so and go from there, but the address I gave is good if you have already sent things..and all stuff not used will be sent back to the members here that helped.
now, I do feel that I need to say something here to a couple of members that emailed me about a concern.
here it is last year I met a very wonderful,kind man here on BPL and we became friends, he helped me tremendously with redoing my setup to help with a shoulder injury that I had been dealing with.
he bought and let me pay him back over time, well after paying half of it back.really hard times hit and then the divorce,moving and not being able to find work.
and just the shear embarrassment of not being able to fullfill my promise to him.I do still owe him for a piece of gear.I have contacted him and let him know that I am sorry and that I do still fully intend to pay him what it owed plus some additional for his trouble and for it taking so long to fulfill my promise.
all else that I can do is again say I am very sorry and as soon as I do get work, he is 1st on my list.
he is a good man, a nice and kind man and I had let him down and for that I am sorry,that I lost his friendship above all.
well there it is..I hope that doesn't change anyones mind about helping me out, but if so I will understand.
I have always prided myself on my word and I failed to Thom.if anyone needs to contact me about this please do use the number listed in the 1st post please.
well my time is about up for today but maybe tonight I can come back and check this again.
I will try to respond to everyone as soon as possible.
thanks again to EVERYONE..you all are great, the tenitive PCT date is May 5th but if things work out maybe I will make kickoff!!
there will be an extensive trip report with pictures by the way..thanks again and GodBless us all.
