    Perhaps @foxfire and the group should combine funds rather than butting heads over the same goal (helping a fellow woods bum out and letting him keep that BEAUTIFUL knife)? ;)

    I guess I just assumed that’s where this was going. I’m just waiting on a PayPal addy to send my end.

    This forum has always been legendary for the generosity of its members as much so as the quality of the knowledge shared. I cannot thank you all enough for that.

    my paypal address is americangrouch@gmail.com

    If you're donating please send me your physical mailing address.

    Thank you all for your help.

    No, I took the knife off the market as a result of the generosity here, it'll now go to my son as I had originally planned.

    Thank you.

    Motion made and seconded, and dissenters?

    (I believe most of us thought this was the way of it anyway)

    Regardless, Cro's PayPal address is out there so donate away!

    Good to see you back Cro, regardless of circumstances. My prayers are with you and your family.

    Cro, my heart goes out to you. I've been through some devastating loss, but I don't pretend to know what you're experiencing. Stay strong, stay connected, and mind your health. People love you, brother.

    Cro, thanks for the response - and I see that you have posted your email address. Sending some to you today, and some again next week.

    Smoke and prayers, Cro. May brotherly love (and sisterly love, from the lady bushcrafter from NJ) lift your soul and help heal your son.

    Mine was headed his way regardless of what happened with the knife, as I’m sure everyone else’s was. I just wish money could ease pain.

    So, there are some auctions going on to benefit Cro. We will be having a Bushcraft Outfitters sponsored auction in the near future. Cro has been a great customer, he has done us a solid as far as reviews go. Please help us support him. We will post up in the near future.

    I'm relatively new here, but the willingness of folks on this forum to help others has amazed me several times. A small donation is on the way with best wishes to help you through this rough time.

    Cro,
    I am terribly sorry for your loss. I'm praying for you.
    Your trip reports were always enjoyable, and your responses to questions were always well-phrased. I know that others hold you in the same high regard that I do.
    I cannot donate; I wish I could. I just wanted to tell you that when my family had to accept help after our house flooded, it was very difficult to accept the help that others cheerfully wanted to give. Please remember that these folks are all very happy to do what they can to help. It is a blessing, not a burden, for them. So be encouraged--a bunch of people are standing with you.

    Hello Cro,
    I don't have the words to express my feelings for you and what you are going through. All that I can say is I would walk the road of life with you any day. I have read your reviews and your blog for some years now. Your contributions to Bushcraft are some of the very best. My heart goes out to you and your son. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I Just changed a for sale item a Ruger American in 22lr for all funds of my sale go directly to CRO. Once the funds are sent and verified, I will ship at my expense to your FFL. I wish that I could do even more.
    Best Regards,
    Michael

    Cro,
    Funds sent from my PayPal to yours. Funds came from the sale of my Ruger America 22lr. Coop was the buyer and he added a extra amount for you as well. Thanks Coop and best to you Cro.

    Don't know how I missed this the first time, I've lusted after this particular Turley since I first saw a picture of it. Even sent Cro a PM a time or two asking how much he wanted for it. This wouldn't be the way I wanted to get it though.

    I'm glad you were able to keep it and pass it down someday Cro, thats the way it should be. Funds sent, hang in there Cro.
