I'm looking behind the kickstarter curtain and noticing some people are raising their dollar amounts to $65 but not raising their backer level to the $65 level.  Please go back in and double check if you haven't done that before.

I have limited band width for downloads, I prefer learning from books, I have my property already and I'm plant based with my diet so I know I won't personally benefit from a lot of the stretch goal items or even the book itself.

I think the world is a better place because Wheaton Labs exists. I hope to visit someday but I doubt it will be this year.

I benefit from this site in many ways on a daily basis. Even the pieces of information I can't personally use are good for others.

I've squeezed my budget and put my money where my values are in supporting this kickstarter.

If the high cost of shipping is holding you back from going up to the $65 level AND you're fine with only getting electronic rewards (no physical SKIP book, BWB, cards), you can select US Virgin Islands as your location and the shipping will drop to zero.  This is particularly helpful if you live overseas.  

Don't do this if you want physical books with that pledge.

Bonus, if you actually live in the US Virgin Islands, you do get free shipping on physical books

I am overwhelmed by all the stretch goals and all the amazing information attached to this Kickstarter. I also love the soundtrack! Final Countdown, Don't stop believing, AND Heaven is a Place on Earth!!
You all have my admiration and gratitude!!
Rock on Permies!

So sad. I just watched the time on kickstarter tick from 20 to 19 minutes.  And now it's down to 17 minutes.
What a wild ride this has been. Thank you to everyone!!!

It's nerve-wracking! Will we make it? That'd be so cool if we did!

And everyone, make sure to be watching the kickstarter page when it hits end time. There will be fireworks!

Could an email be sent out to the Kickstarter supporters ASAP to warn them about that? I recall this being an issue with a previous Kickstarter too, maybe a last minute email could prevent at least a few mistakes like that.

Plus when you update your pledge you get little mini fireworks and (from what I could tell) the most up to date total.

Good idea...   I've mentioned it in the last 7 updates so I don't think that would change things much.  I'm just hoping some of them are watching this thread and saw my note...

Well, it's actually confetti falling all around the box when you update your pledge. But exciting anyways.

If we hit $150k, there's a SKIP team webinar!
If we don't hit $150, I get out of a webinar!
