    Share the Love and Madness: Send Some K00ks to Yurp

    In the spirit of this collection of weirdos, I would like to propose the following:
    https://www.gofundme.com/f/stoke-dreams

    A consortium of miscreants, n'er do wells and ski fiends would like to share their abundance with fellow ski fiends.

    This fund is intended to aid and abet fellow ski fiends to travel to places where the madness can be shared in person with like minded misfits and madmen.

    The idea is to collect some donations, then solicit for candidates that are worthy and desirous of a 5 day trip to Yurp to ski around the Andermatt-Disentis SkiArena.

    Whose in? Give what you can.

    You can suggest beneficiaries as well here.

    I'll run the poll on candidates later.

    Wife is currently out of work so cash is a little tight.

    But I've got gear I'm moving on so I'm putting it up in GS over the next week whose price is free with contribution to the fund. In case others want to do the same. Here's the first: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...yptons-27-27-5

    Cool stuff, Buster! (and good on ya, those who have donated -- including doebedoe (because that's a donation).

    For reasons I cannot get into here I cannot afford to donate (let alone go), but I dig it.

    IAS is a super worthy candidate.
    I can think of 2 other deserving souls as well.

    But, as coordinator, I think I should keep my vote out of it.

    Hopefully this thing gets rolling, people contribute and we can send 3 deserving folks.
    It will blow their minds.

    Like I mentioned before, back in the mid nineties when we first made tracks in the Alps, a hipster stoner k00k I met from Aspen used to fund an acquaintance of his wholly by himself.
    It was just the coolest thing.

    There's a lot of us and a bunch of $20 contributions could do that. Even $5ers.

    We have 90 days.

    Thanks guys.
    This ain't about me.

    It's about the maggots. Righteous hearts.

    We're closing in on covering airfare for 1 person so far.

    I was wrong to make a joke at your expense. I'll own it. Sorry dude.

    Buster is doing something really cool here and I want to keep the stoke high. That's all.
