I have an idea that I would like the folks at REI to consider... Wouldn't it be great if REI partnered with a cruise ship or freight company to deliver camping gear --- I bet almost every REI member has at least one item of camping gear they haven't used in years that they could donate. And tents... oh my gosh, we are tent loving folks, couldn't REI rally their members to drop off their extra tents, and then partner with a company that has a ship and deliver them?
