Gear For Gifts

Postby halhiker » Wed May 28, 2014 1:50 pm

Whenever I've got some extra gear I never know the best way to get rid of it. Sometimes I put it on eBay but you don't always get good value that way—and sometimes you get WAY more than you expect but it's a crapshoot. I've given some to friends, which is always good but you've got to know what certain people need and have the right size.

Then, I came up with a new idea. How about I give someone the gear in exchange for a donation to a local charity? Gear For Gifts

How it would work is someone would put up a piece of gear with a suggested donation and the person who wants it makes a donation in exchange for the item they want.

I was thinking good possible donation destinations would be:
The Tahquitz Peak Fire Lookout (which I man occasionally) ... iginal.pdf
The Mount San Jacinto Natural History Association
Palm Springs Mounted Police ... 7404612601

There may be others as well.

I'm gonna round up some extra stuff and see if anyone could use it. I've got a few packs and some North Face Jackets and who knows what else.

What do you think?
