Here’s a thank you letter I wrote to the Kickstarter backers. I feel the same thankfulness to all my backers, regardless of where they came from, or even what they did. A hot meal, a smile, or a place to camp means as much to me as financial backing.
Last but certainly not least, I wouldn’t be doing this without the support of my parents, Jim and RuthAnne Krause. For my entire life they have shown incredible restraint in not letting on how worried they were when I was out doing things that would make a parent shudder with anxiety. That kind of restraint is one of the best gifts a parent can give his or her child.
