    Out of line. First, you have no idea whether he has or not, and whether he can afford to or not. Not to mention that the person you singled out has faced enormous tragedy recently, and would have exceedingly good reasons for holding on to every $20 he has.

    Donating is a personal choice, and offering good wishes shouldn't be met with derision.

    jesus, it's a joke, stand down solider.

    edit: I can see it's maybe hard to tell it's a joke without a winkie, but I'm anti-winkie.

    winking once in awhile is nbd. but some guys are staunchly opposed to it
    then some people just think you are a dick.
    take down the ego and do a smirk or winky to your friends once in awhile. does good. fuck those that judge bc text is emotionless

    also back to thread- these people were mentors for us when I first joined the threads so sending best wishes to Brittany and Frank.

    It is hard to tell without the wink. And maybe your choice of person was intentional to give your joke some extra ooomph, but it really made you look like a dick.

    Of all the posts to go after someone for, that wouldn't have been my first choice. baron's would.

    If you can't donate, no worries. If you can donate, even $5, I'm positive it will be greatly appreciated. I know Brittany and Frank well enough to know that asking people for money has to be something they are extremely uncomfortable with. They've been through surgeries before and never asked for a dime, and I'm quite sure if they remotely thought they could get through this one without asking, they wouldn't have a gofundme. That said, I was in a financial place for a long time where donating to these things was out of the question, so I get it. If you can't donate, I know they'll appreciate the positive energy sent their way as well.

    timing is everything here. i thought muted was quite harsh too till he responded that in his mind, the message was conveyed with a winky intent.
    baron was just trying to be funny. bad timing imo.

    Honestly, I never would have responded if he had quoted anyone else. But to respond that way to a dude whose house just burned down, got a knee jerk response out of me.

    Couldn't have happened to nicer people. 10 years ago they came to ski at my home hill, we'd had a crappy rain storm, all the goods were ice, and they still were gracious guests, having fun on blue runs (or at least pretending too). Real skiers with real stoke/

    Hoping this is just a bump in the road for them. Goldenboy - don't forget to look after yourself too, it can be hard in different ways on the partner of someone who goes through this sort of thing.

    I didnít realize that was the dude who had his house burned down, that should go without saying, but Iíll make it clear. Iíd rather just hear a heartfelt PERSONAL response than a copy-paste Ďthoughts and prayersí, thatís why I posted the $20 little jab. Little did I know Tap has NO time to do anything but say Ďhealing vibesí. Whoops, Iím a dick. I donít care if he donated, and for fucks sake he COULD have for all we know, thatís not my point.

    Tap, sorry, I didnít connect that you were they guy that lost his house. People say itís just things and they donít matter and can be replaced, but thatís kinda bullshit. I love seeing all the home improvement we did and being happy with how we made our home a home, and that canít be replaced. It may be the same for you, and that sucks. Sure I donít care if my car or bike or skis burn to the ground but losing your sense of place must be hard. And a bit scary with a kid or two and you want them to feel safe. I wish you luck moving on, truly.

    Iíll donate another 20 today to Brit for my sins and counting up a good thread.

    I've always been really impressed with both Goldenboy and mtnbikerskierchick, who seem like good people. Small donation given. Best of luck.

    Thanks for all the love, everyone. It means a lot, especially to Brittany since she's reading all the well-wishes online.

    Third and final surgery was yesterday, hopefully we'll at least make it to my mom's house in Golden by the end of the week (in case anyone didn't get the goldenboy thing, it's because I grew up there). Hopefully back in CB in 10 days? Been lucky to have so much support from family and friends...

    There is a maggot who works 911 dispatch somewhere- shoot me a pm. I've been super curious about the inReach vs 911 timeline and when which resources were deployed. By my estimates, accident to Level 1 trauma center at St Anthony's was under 1.5 hours. Maybe even an hour.

    Glad to hear from you, and glad to hear Brittany is improving.

    In case he doesn't check in here, I believe it is bendtheski.
