      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Basabe

wanted to buy Bellingham Non-Profit looking for backpacking gear

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Andy Basabe, I've been a CC user for some years now, and I am wondering if any of you have any older backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, pads, etc, that you are interested in donating or selling for very cheap.  I run Vamos Outdoors Project, a non-profit that takes Latino, ELL, and recently immigrated youth on backpacking trips into the Cascades.  We run a unique program with each trip comprising of half english speaking "local" youth and half our target scholarship group.  That way language and cultural exchange happens directly at a student to student level.  Feel free to check out Vamoseducation.com if you are curious.  

I am hoping this is appropriate to put up here, I am not trying to advertise my business, but to get gear we sorely need to outfit our clients.  We like to "graduate" our participants with the gear they need so they can continue to access the mountains on their own.  These are kids who would not have the opportunity otherwise, and with both parents working constantly, childcare is usually the television.  

Thanks, 

Andy
