Post by Tamerlin » Wed Jan 25, 2012 3:15 am

For those who like to breathe clean air, help support the American Lung Association... by sending me on a trip to the Columbia Crest :)

Very worthy cause. Put me on your list of those wanting to go with :o I need to vacate the midwest and go to a higher clean air location. I think I want to be a Tibetan Monk :D

Off topic: aurora borealis.....did you get any photos of it yesterday, the national news showed it was awesome to say the least. :?:

Unfortunately, no dice on the aurora; it's been cloudy and raining most of the time this week.

I do need help raising funds for this summit bid, so tell your friends, and see if you can get some to chip in some bux! The money isn't for me, it's going to the American Lung Association to help fight for clean air.

Thanks!

Any help I can get will be wonderful... I have a bit of time on this one, but I need to raise $3700.

The mountain guides are volunteering also, so most of the money those of us who have joined the Climb for Clean Air will raise will go to the American Lung Association to help them keep our air safe to breathe.

Thanks for chipping in your support, Zelph!

Now let's hope a few more people chip in some support... especially those other members here who like breathing ;)

I like breathing. I am in Big Sky Montana.

I need to move because the apartment downstairs "neighbor" uses meth: the smoke rises straight up into my apartment.

Maybe the American Lung Association would do an advertising campaign about meth "second hand smoke"?

Maybe, with your contacts, you could make the suggestion?


I have all the windows open, a 20" fan and a 9" fan, plus a $199 floor model ionizer, all running full time in "Montana Winter".

I am wearing clothing for backpacking and using my sleeping system for backpacking, indoors.

I am hoping I can rent a separate house, next month.

If I get the house, I know I am going to have to go thru some "withdrawal" as it is. At least, I have all the fresh air I can push and pull through my apartment.

There is no law enforcement, here. I have made a DEA complaint. I don't see anything happening.

Well placed ads and tv ads and well placed billboards by the American Lung Association could help.

Campaigning against smoking is definitely part of what the ALA is raising money to do. They are striving to put an end to smoking altogether, but you have to start somewhere!

I'd be happy to share your story... it sounds like a complete bummer, and exactly the sort of thing that I and the ALA are opposed to, and is one of the reasons that I joined the Climb for Clean Air.

Let's start getting the word out.

Even if you aren't able to contribute financial support, try to get some friends on board. The more support we get, the more of these battles we can fight.

If I didn't believe that these folks were striving to accomplish something with the money we're raising, I wouldn't be raising money for them.

I'm sure they were influential in getting to have smoking banned in so many public buildings. Taverns don't allow smoking inside. Now that is an amazing accomplishment. Drinking and smoking was always part of the picture.

When I go over my sons house for 1 hour I leave there smelling like smoke, yuk yuk yuk makes me want to gag :roll:

A donation to the American Lung Association is well worth it.

Time to get out those old buffalo nickles and squeeze them ;) :lol:
