Recently I put a post on here offering a kid (or group off kids) my climbing gear free of charge as long as a parent was present to pick it up.

This stuff isn't cheap for youth clubs to buy.

There has to be some community minded fellas out there who would take a bit of time out to pick it up, and give a kid a good time in the bush.

Regards

Kim

Kim,

Perhaps contact the Scouts, they were only too happy to take an old Tent off my hands recently.

Jim

I'd prefer a fella or a gal to knock on the door. At least I'd know they'd taken a bit of time out of their day to motivate the kids.

PS I'll give you a call next month


Regards

Kim

Hey Kim,
It seems like people are so tied up in day to day crap that they have forgotten what life is all about.
The day I left the rat race and got back to living was a fantastic day for me.
Very kind of you to offer that. It's good to see there are still people who care out there.

Cheers & Happy Travels
Jason

I guess that's one of the 'lessons of life'. You can only offer - you can't make people take you up on it. Perhaps some parents are a bit dubious in allowing their kids to become too physically involved in activities. They might get hurt - or something.

Hello Kim, I am a Scout leader in Geelong, we would love to have the climbing gear, you are correct about your statement that it isn't cheap to buy
