Headlamp, mini-bic lighters, waterproof matches, fishing gear, reflective cordage, mini-dropper bottles, dri-ducks poncho, survival bivy, Photon x-light… My list keeps going because every time I turn around, my boy has swiped another piece of my gear. I suspect he's trading it on campouts for junk food and camp chores.Dec 13, 2011 at 9:53 am #1811634

ok, I "was" the 5th entry in this thread and then it mysteriously disappeared.
I had made a simple suggestion that we make a donation rather than spending our christmas present money on trinkets. I had listed 4 possible donation options.
Was this so out of place on this thread it had to be deleted ?
Would whoever deleted my post please provide an explanation for the censorship ?Dec 14, 2011 at 6:51 am #1811966

My wife and I have given Kiva.org gift certs over the past couple years for people to make microloans on kiva.org. They have been very well-received and have been a gift that keeps on giving as each $25 loan gets repaid, the lender can re-lend it back out again. I think two of our $25 gifts have been loaned out 4 times for a total of $100 in loans each. It's a great feel-good gift.Dec 14, 2011 at 7:09 am #1811971
Hey guys, I reported the post that was a link to some overstock Abercrombie and Fitch website. It was the person's first post, and soon a similar one showed up in another thread.
I noticed that this entire thread was deleted for a while, so I don't know what happened.
Art, I'm not sure why your post was deleted.Dec 14, 2011 at 6:09 pm #1812286
Art, I'm also not sure why your post was deleted – it wasn't flagged, I know that much. Sometimes, when a post HAS been deleted, it does wonky things to the entire thread. Forum mods have noticed it as well, but we're not entirely sure about the cause or solution.
All I can say is that I'm sorry the post was deleted, and that I believe it was a mistake or accident on the deleter's part.
I received some Kiva credit to make loans as part of a Christmas gift. I'm excited about using it. My entire family opted to pool our money and buy livestock for families in Africa. I'm excited about having done that too!Dec 14, 2011 at 8:38 pm #1812319
+2 or 3 or whatever to Kat's cool hats.
Also, those Tyvek Wallets are pretty cool. Not necessarily backpacking gear technically, but likely a bpl-er will be excited about UL type stuff in their everyday life too.
