I received a package along with a note from Chris today. Chris, thank you so much for your kindness.

Here's the survival part...His apartment caught fire a few nights ago. He got everyone out including his cat, but everything else is toast.

If he didn't want you all to know, I am sorry Chris. But I hope you will keep him and his in your thoughts and prayers.

I plan on sending him a care package once he gets a new mailing address to me and I was going to ask if anyone else might want to as well. As I am not sure he would want his address widely distributed, I don't mind being the coordinator unless Doug wants to be or Chris is ok with giving out his address. We'll just wait and see until he is back up and running again.

Good luck Chris.

Aloha, thank you for offering to coordinate packages for Chris. If he accepts, I definitely want to participate.

I'll do what I can do, right now he needs more than I do.

Chris, please post a list of needed items. I'm sure we're all sitting on a pile of odds and ends that could help round out some of the things you're missing.

Perhaps it could be like a wedding registry:

Need 2 Moras, 3 Sparklites, 1 tarp...
And people could trim the list as we fill the items. So you don't end up with, say, 200 Boy Scout Spark flints and 0 botas.

I'm assuming we can send money to you to pass on to Chris?

Thanks for bringing this to our attention; I am sure it was hard decision to make regarding Chris’s situation.


If you are able to read the forums, please let us know whatever you need. I believe we can arise to lend a hand.

Will packages to your address be forwarded to your new address?

FWIW, I have not received any messages from Chris on this, not sure what to make of it. Trying to contact him and find out what's going on.
