Thanks Drew!


Thanks everyone, this is so excellent to see. I'm going to stop the donations at $2k. Brandon is truly incredibly thankful, but really doesn't want to keep accepting money.

Hopefully we can get to $2k and finish it there. Thanks so much to everyone that has donated!

I saw we get him the funds all in $1's and turn him loose for a real good time . After buying some locking Troy Boxes, of course.

Haha! I second that! Would make for an even more entertaining read! ;-) We're at $2k now.

Brandon already got some form of locking boxes in the bed. They however, are not big enough to hold all of the tools and materials he's carrying. Also i'm not sure the Troy boxes would work well in a lightweight, as they conform to the body roll of normal series/defenders.


....so all of it should just be in singles then

paypal doesn't like donations, which is why they're probably not approved

Thanks a ton to all that had donated. It's truly great to see the LR community come together and support a fellow owner. Brandon urged me to stop donations, so at his request I have closed the fundraiser. It is still open for reference, but donations have been turned off.

Now we can all watch the saga continue

I am sorry I missed this and couldn't donate to the cause. This is truly a testament to the community and to what type of person Zack is. You are a good man Zack. Good luck Brandon.
