No worries - as promised, nothing personal, and reasons understood.
I was just thinking that, beyond the regular scope of memorializing fallen climbers, or people vs. dogs, or spending money to put a man on the moon when there's diseases to cure, this was one way to honor a very cool episode in the history of that area. Sometimes you put up a plaque because it's fun, in other words, and not because it's important.
I am, however, nowhere near local to the area, don't know the owners or the owners of the land, and have never raised any funds online before, so overall I'm not exactly sure where I thought I was going with this. Idea dropped on my end.
