A site such as this costs money to maintain. I pay for both the domain, and the web hosting. In addition, the trips I go on, and the equipment I bring with me cost money. If you enjoy this site, I ask that you make a donation, however big or small, to help keep this site up and the adventures coming.
Thank you!
