Huge thanks to all the 'founding backers' over the weekend who kickstarted this project! We're underway towards the $6,000 goal and the possibility of doubling this amount thanks to the Peter Kiewit Foundation is like a giant carrot at the end of the stick. Your $100 could become $200 if we reach our $6000 goal here on Kickstarter.
We will be uploading a video about the project in the next 48 hours, and are excited to share it with the world.
If you can think of other friends and family who would be interested in backing this project, whether it be because they think it's cool, believe in it, or would just like the experience of climbing a 100' tall grain elevator, send them a link to Stored Potential on Kickstarter. If they become a backer, you could even spend your day climbing with them!
Thanks again, and more updates to come.
