Hey everyone, once again time for the shameless plug
The KML has officially started its 2007 season. Our winter hiatus was longer this year (I had some family over from home), but we are geared up and things started as of our Council Meeting last week. Our first in-field work for the season started today and concludes tomorrow. Then we will be on a regular schedule of in-field work: cleaning up, assessing trails, erosion checks, etc.
If anyone would like to volunteer, please let me know, we would highly appreciate your help. Even more, as we are 100% non-profit, we highly rely upon Council fees, membership fees, and donations. Every little bit helps us do our work. Membership fees are a reasonable 50,000 won annual, and don't need to be renewed if you don't wish to do so. Donations are your will: even 1,000 won buys us another pair of gloves.
We also are happy to receive donations in the form of equipment, primarily backpacks or hip packs. So if you have an old bag that just doesn't cut it for you anymore, we'll be happy to take off of your hands and put it to good use before its final retirement (Sorry, we are not accepting used hiking boots at this time...
- Seriously though, I suggest contacting Porter's Progress in Nepal for a good way to donate used boots and clothing to Nepali porters who can't afford their own: http://www.portersprogress.org/)
Well, I hope we can all work together at some point to make better the highlands we all love - when you love something, cherish it, protect it.
