Hi, Dan et al -

Is there any way a non-profit fund could be set up to allow us to donate toward this effort and expense?  If someone could be hired to do most of the hard work - under your supervision, of course - would that help persuade you undertake the effort??

I for one would donate $500, maybe more, to help keep #4 operational - especially if a couple of trips on the east end of the C&TS could be arranged for next year or 2014.*
