ROAD TRIP!...almost...

Edit- Please disregard the following post. Some extremely good friends of ours have met our fuel needs and have insured our comfort as we travel to pick up these great computers. A name you will hear again is Alexander van Kaam. Alex is a native of The Netherlands and stepped forward to not only make up the difference from the other donations, he gave us a decent nights lodging so we didn't have to sleep in the truck overnight.
Thank you Alex.



We are Ready...

We have our transportation lined up, much thanks to a kind soul in The Netherlands...he saw to it that we had the money we needed for a truck...

But...

I forgot something.

It takes fuel to get there. Like...duh!

Anyway folks, I forgot to add that into the calculation and we are trying to raise an additional 180 bucks.

THEN we can go get these computers. Really this time...I mean it.

A huge thank you to Brian Henry for working for us and to Richard...will omit his last name here for the time being as I don't know how he'd feel about it. Richard is going to meet Brian and pick up the Computers and Monitors so we don't have to fight a time deadline..

You will be hearing about all the people mentioned here on linuxluminaries.blogspot.com here in a few days.

And as always, thanks for being part of what we do. If you care to help, you can hit the donate button at the top left of this page.

Don't feel bad. Forgetting the gas money is somewhat like leaving your house without the keys, only to find to your horror that you did remember to lock the door. Ok, so maybe they're two different things. At least in my situation, I had a room mate with a spare key.

How many miles is this trip gonna be? You might want to figure more than $180.

I tried to send a message via the form here: http://www.heliosinitiative.org/contact.php after donating and it appears to have bounced (the message). Just thought you should know.

Keep doing what you're doing; if the best I can do from here is throw money at the project and get the word out, then that's what I'll do.

LOL...this trip just drained us to 2.32 cent in our daily operations account. We are most appreciative of any help now. You are truly a friend.

thanks
