Howsit all.

Who on the forum is sponsored? Who sponsors you? What do they sponsor you and how did you get sponsored?

Just for curiosity sake

Self-sponsered :)

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

As much as I enter basically every competition that Cape Union Mart has (I am hoping to win their Movember one now - insert a smilie with a mustache here :{) ), I am very much self sponsored... Although whats nice is if you start up a school hiking club, they school tends to pay for your trip (and EKZN has a policy that certain school day hikes don't have to pay the day permit fee - yay you save R25, how significant), although you'll only be doing easy day hikes (and every such trip I have ever arranged got canceled with very short notice)...

A friend of mine is the Headmaster at Underberg Primary, and each year their grade 6 or 7 class does Rhino. So I'm hoping that next year I get to guide them, I was offered this year but couldn't get off work so soon. And all I have to pay for is fuel! Bonus! So I'm holding thumbs for that. Other than that a sponsor would be amazing, just for gear, like a nice Deuter backpack, just a hint. Hehe

Unfortunately we are the way in which companies like Trappers and Cape Union Mart stay in business, although if you do something like K2 you may get some sponsorship. Although with the death rate on K2 you may also need some sponsorship from a morgue...

I think K2 would be more of a personal challenge, cause people will be all like "oh its dangerous, but its not the highest".

Does that title not belong to Nanga Parbat? If we're talking fatalities on 8000m mountains that is...

It could well belong to the "Naked Mountain", I know its often known as K1, I believe that less than 300 people have climbed K2, and if I'm correct less than 100 have successfully done Nanga Parbat, compared to around 3000 on Everest...
