I decided to make September "official" donation month to coincide with Gerlachfest. After everything is paid for at Gerlach (food, wood, cooler drinks, etc) the remaining monies are given to me to keep the lists going. Out of pocket expenses for the lists (BTW, that's the LDRiders and IBDone lists) runs about 900 dollars a year. That doesn't include the bourbon or Prozac. Since times are tight (and our school district, my employer, has cut our pay) my bourbon purchases have become few and far between.
There are no donations requirements, the list will continue one way or another, but if you find it worthwhile, please consider a small donation.
