I am considering doing a fund-raising climb of the Polish Glacier route of Aconcagua (I would prefer Ama Dablam, but time could be an issue) in early 2002.  The money raised will be for melanoma (skin cancer) awareness and research (a personal issue).  I will be giving presentations at schools about the dangers and risks concerning melanoma.  I will seek both individual a corporate sponsors to raise $ (to go to the presentations and charity - not climbing expenses).  I believe I will also be able to get publicity on certain web site (s).

Right now, this is in the planning stages (thus the 2002 date) pending 2 things (a guide -- see below -- and getting the time off from work). 

Though I have the physical ability, the climbing experience and the personal gear I believe is necessary, I will need a guide of sorts to help me (routefinding, weather and snow conditions, etc.).  As I do not want to spend any donations on the climb itself, I am looking for someone to donate their time.  To the extent appropriate, I am willing to include the individual and/or their company as a major sponsor (in presentations and web site coverage). 

Please e-mail me at mfeldman@reedsmith.com if you have any interest, suggestions or recommendations. Thanks

    Classified Ad Policies

Buying & Selling on the Net

Be careful !

When someone buys "something" over the Internet from someone else, they are usually dealing with someone they know little or nothing about. The buyer has no way of ensuring that when they send money to the seller, the desired goods will arrive. Also, for person or company to sell something over the Internet, they have no guarantee that once they send the goods, the buyer will live up to their end of the bargain by sending the negotiated funds. The basic problem here is that when dealing with someone over the Internet, you have no idea who they are and whether they are trustworthy.

There are a couple of ways to deal with this. The easiest is to simply request that the shipper send your stuff C.O.D. This way, you don't pay until the product arrives. The shipper is protected as well since he doesn't risk shipping the parts and never getting paid. Other  alternatives is i.e. i-Escrow, to solve that problem by being the Escrow Agent in the transaction. Both buyer and seller will then be able to safely give each other what they want using i-Escrow as the impartial third party. (Note: Charges for using the i-Escrow service are not included in any prices unless specified by the seller..)

Classified Ad Etiquette


It's OK to negotiate price, but don't be insulting. Be reasonable and nice in negotiations.  Make offers that are reasonable. If the seller refuses it move on.

Once the buyer and sellers agrees on price and shipping arrangements, stick by your agreement. Don't leave the seller hanging because you changed your mind. Send your payment immediately per the agreed upon terms !

If extenuating circumstances come about, notify the seller at once and offer an apology. Know that you might not receive a refund ! Be careful !

Check your e-mail !


Be reasonable in your pricing. Even if the item you are selling is brand new, you must recognize that there is a difference between a private deal such as this and buying from a reputable establishment. If someone is willing to buy from you, don't expect them to pay you the same amount they could pay a retail establishment. After all, a retail business usually takes credit cards, stands behind their products, has a reputation, etc. The buyer doesn't know you from Adam and is taking some risk. You must include that risk in your pricing.

Check your email. If you don't respond to messages, you're wasting the time of the buyer, you're wasting bandwidth, you're wasting the webmaster's time, and you're wasting your own time. Read your mail and answer it !

Don't be offended at lowball offers. You should expect buyers to offer you less than your full asking price. Often they will offer you unacceptable amounts. If an offer is unacceptable, don't get too upset. Simply send a reply with a counter-offer and be done with it.

On occasion, some miscreant will send you a nasty flame about your price or your item. Just delete it and forget it. It isn't worth getting worked up over. Not everyone has class. Not everyone is honorable. Not everyone has a brain. However, abuse can and should be submitted to abuse@ the e-mail company. For example if you receive something you feel strongly about and/or spam from a hotmail user simply forward the message to abuse@hotmail.com for yahoo abuse@yahoo.com etc...

Once you agree on a price and shipping arrangements, stick by your agreement. Don't leave the buyer hanging because you changed your mind. Ship the item immediately per your agreement.

If you are climbing or trekking with a company. Check them out and know your limits. The possibility of death at HA climbing is a reality not a possibility. Be careful !
