At Bonfire, things are passed down, to the extent even that "pass down" is a noun in these parts.  Here where still-useful things are decades - even generations - old, the stories and the experience itself are the greatest pass-downs.


What your support achieves

Befitting Bonfire, shooting photos out here is not easy.  Hours are long, conditions can be harsh, and how can you NOT get on an axe or a log every now and then.  My ever-patient wife may disagree, but I still believe that I can bounce back (slowly).  Not so with...  

...equipment.  With your support, I can keep up with the expense of maintaining equipment, and replacing it as necessary.  And when replacement is necessary, to ideally acquire equipment even better suited for the job...

...to bring you ever-better stories.  Throughout the season, I post the photos and stories online to facebook, twitter, and my web site.  I also run thousands of 4x6 prints that are handed out for free all over Aggieland.  Your support covers web hosting, and more importantly makes those prints possible.

I know this story and I love this story because I lived it.  I have seen Bonfire continue to thrive, to shape lives, build and be built by uncommon motivation.  I hope that you may see that too.

Thanks for your support.  Gig 'em.

Goals
$0 of $3 per month
Traveling shoes.  It's a good starting point.  Shooting Bonfire, I wear steel-toe boots.  But making the rounds with photos and stories, I burn through some shoes.  A new pair every year just for this.  So, put a spring in my step.

Pro Tip: Old school Reeboks make a 10 mile walk nothing at all.
