    Mary,

    This year we are getting to the 250 hiker limit. Only the first 250 registering and getting to $100 will get a goodie bag. Last year there was not as much pressure on the timing with fewer hikers signing up.

    The pledge page is really easy for folks to use - and it does not use PayPal (which is a service I happen to dislike). One just puts the pledge on their credit card and you are done. It is nice and simple. A few people wanted me to do it for them - so, they gave me a check. I went to the pledge page and entered it under their name but against my credit card.

    Congratulations on breaking the 1K mark Mary, great job. Last year a friend who hiked with me but wasn't a registered hiker for STP was able to purchase a dinner ticket right at the tent where they held the after party. I would assume they'd do the same and your parents would be welcome. We'll see you there if not on the trail!!!

    O.K. I just got a letter today for STP and I am even more excited about this year than before. Lots of great stuff being given away. Now all I need is someone to stand in my place at the after party holding my tickets for the door prizes.

    ok....i didnt mean to be abrupt but i had to leave the comp earlier....my parents are elderly and my mother has not been well the last couple of years....they were in the whites a few times when they were younger and i just kind of threw the idea out to them as we rent a house and there is more than enough room....it will be kind of cool for them to stand on the mountain top again....i was thinking that buying a ticket for the van ride down wasnt a big deal but now after reading it seems like it might be a touch and go thing....if anyone has any input or suggestion regarding the van tickets id appreciate it....is it something i can reserve prior to the day or no?....

    Mary, if there is any way of getting them to the summit - do it. I got my mother up there when she was well into her 80's and loved it. One of her favorite pictures was of her looking out over the peaks.
