Sorry TMan! I hope the ice hasn't claimed another victim, I'm still walking off a brutal hit on my left buttock from last week's fall on the ice.

From what I heard, were talking several broken ribs and brain trauma. So Canna, you don't deserve your own thread just yet! How does chipping in for a gift sound or is that outta line?

The Teleman gofundme operative is ongoing and a few of us here have already contributed. I am in charge of the thing myself so its in good hands (or so I believe!). Thanks for helping out if you can.

Are you sure he couldn't use the cash? Medical expenses can be tough for anybody.

Al is right, here in the States medical expenses are huge. That being said, I made a small donation. I trust you Ben to make decisions on the best use of cash. If more is required shoot me a PM.

Good point guys. As soon as I manage to get in touch with either Bruce or his family, I will let them decide what to do with what we have to offer. Keep in mind if ever it does not work out, I will get all the money back to each of you. Take care.

yikes, it's serious, I'm very sorry to hear about this accident. Hard to believe something like this could happen to Bruce, being such a hardened mountain man with daily sking and all.

Changing the fundraiser to cash is a great idea, thanks again for doing it.
