Default Update on charity auction

Fellow forum members,

Sorry for my absence for the last few days, but I was on vacation in a place with very poor internet service (which is part of it's charm.) I am back now and will respond to all emails/ PMs in a timely manner.

The high bidder so far is Mike63 at $110. This is a very generous offer which is worth much more than the retail price of the prize. I will keep the auction open until tomorrow night.

Anyone who wants to outbid Mike can simply reply on this thread.

Anyone who wants to make a donation, but not bid on the tool, can contact me via email or private message. Donations can be made via Paypal to my email at jpoint at mindspring doht com. Donations will be accepted for a couple of days after the auction closes to give everyone time.

As a reminder- the original challenge was for everyone to match the winning bid, up to the purchase price ($36.99) so don't feel like you have to match the $110 (or more) winning bid. This includes those whose bids were outbid. Any dollar amount will be appreciated and helpful.

Thanks again for your generosity.

Default The auction is closed...

...and we have a winner. Mike63 was the high bidder at $110. Congratulations Mike, and please send me a PM with your info so I can ship the prize to you.

Thanks to everyone else who made a donation. I will accept donations through the end of this weekend, and I will post the total amount raised on Monday.

Default Thanks Jeff

Folks, here is proof that a thread doesnt always have to be RV related.

Just goes to show that allowing a bit of flexibility (I.E. discretion of moderators) in the posting rules is a wise thing.

Still, no cell phone ads, or as Doug would say, "your toast".
