    Tim, You should be so proud of putting all this together, legend!

      Thanks James. Literally couldn’t have done it without the 100 other donors and half dozen other adventurers though.

    A superhuman effort replying to so many people! I’m inspired by the people who didn’t necessarily respond positively because it means that they have total passion for the adventure they’re planning and think it’s a winning idea. It’s that passion and determination that turns an idea into a reality. I wish them all success.

    Thanks again Tim for the advice you gave! Really interesting to see all of the responses. I love the people who attached photos of their adventures anyways, that’s so cool.

    I think it’s lovely that you gave personal responses to so many people. Applying for grants can require a lot of work and be so time consuming (just like applying for a job), so it’s nice to get some feedback. Some of the replies definitely brought a smile to my face :) Congrats and good luck to everyone out there that’s planning an expedition! Some times the hardest step is not securing the funding, but taking that leap of faith to do what others tell you is impossible!

      Thanks Kelly. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll give feedback next year unless people specifically request it. I got a lot of negative responses to it, not all reported above.
