Some of you may have read my tale-of-woe on the North Face subforum, so here's a name and address if you'd like to send any gear you no longer want/need to a Columbus OH Troop which has very little equipment of its own.   From what I gather these kids don't have much of anything, so any little bit would help.

 

Here's the message I got from their Scoutmaster when I asked:

Thanks a million, sorry the pack got lost. Far as gear needs, we can always use sleeping Pads and bags, backpacks, isopropane stoves......basically anything that folks don't want anymore will work.

No - I just communicate with him via "WhiteBlaze.net", a forum for AT hikers.

His screename there is "Lostone"

Here's his thread that got me involved:
