Big End of the Trail Sale!! on 05/29/2012 08:36:11 MDT Print View

Hi Everyone..I hope all had a great holiday..
I have decided to hang up my hiking gear for good due to some personal trials I continue to deal I am selling all my best gear,everythings gotta go..need the money to handel some more pressing obligations why I can.I have sold/bought alot of gear here and hope that my word holds some weight as to what I sell, I do not have time to post pics and answer alot of questions as I am in between houses and dont really check my computer much.
I will do my best to describe the gear, you can bet it is great gear, this is the final results of 7yrs of up grades,and even though I didnt finish, this is a respectable kit.
my prices are firm but more then fair, I would like everything to be paypal GIFT I am more then loseing money, so please dont insult me with some crazy low ball offer, I would rather keep it or give it away then be insulted,sorry..thats how I feel..dont meen to sound rude..just real

so this may be a few part sale when I see it paid through paypal as a gift or someone claims it
I will ship immediatly through UPS GROUND if possible all prices will include shipping.
on the last sale I lost a few hundred just trying to do the right thing and cant do it this time sorry..need this done so I can get things done..thanks for all the help and support through the years BPL..hikers are the greatest people on earth..PEACE Don
stay tuned for some great deals to help a fellow hiker

Interested in the bivy and GossammerGear poles.
However, the 125cm description for the poles threw me of, makes it seems like it's the LT3 ??
What is the size of the bivy ?

Donald had some huge PIF lists previously and he stated that most of that was donated. I got gear and just paid shipping for it. It was all legit.

Don is a good guy... on 05/29/2012 17:35:43 MDT Print View

I got a few things from Don not long ago and everything was great... shipped fast, priced great, and easy to work with.

I wish you all the best sir, and hope your momentary troubles are resolved in short order, and you can get back to the trails.

+1 for Don!
