WhenI get home I will check the pledge spreadsheet, but I don't think we have $75,000,yet either...

I spent a few years on a tall ship, I am positive I could whip a few ZS members into a half decent crew.
If anyone ever wants to do some sailing, drop me a line.... I got a 10m sailboat a few months ago that I have been repairing. It's up in the Coromandel at the moment, and I need to finish moving it to Hawkes Bay.

Sorry to bump, but is anyone counting how much you guys are actually at? That'd be very handy

I'll toss in a jumbo bottle of extra strength acetaminophen caplets from Costco. We'll probably need it the day after the grog runs out.
