Teenage Climbers Looking For Sponsors

I'm an adult leader with Venture Crew 491, a high adventure branch of the Boy Scouts of America, and we have about 15 boys and girls between the ages of 14-20 that are involved in this outdoor recreation group. We have been canyoneering in Zion National Park, rock climbing and snow-shoeing in Yosemite, climbed Mt. Whitney, and more. The kids learn invaluable mountaineering and leadership skills, self-reliance and teamwork, and loads of self-confidence through these ...

Has anyone seen these sites:

Creating pages

Hey all. I'm new at this page creating thing, just did my first one today. But what I can't figure out is if there is a way to take the photos from my storage files straight to the page. I don't want to have to add all of those to my profile if not necessary. Thanks for any info. Cheers!

Last Wishes and Being Left on the Mountain

In a nutshell, here are the questions that I'm pondering for a worst case 'what if' scenario. I'll rant some more about them below.

    1. What are the legal ramifications for this, both for those left behind, and for the agencies that operate in the area?
