      Tim,
      It is highly unlikely that Jardine will reduce prices
      on his remaining goods. Why wouldn't he? Two reasons.
      Jardine is extremely egotistical, even bordering on
      meglomania. His ego won't let him reduce prices.
      Jardineheads abound among backpackers(the cult of ray)
      & they will snap up the remaining items as memorabilia
      in hopes that Jardine will restablish himself as their
      'god.' Interestingly enough Jardine has essentially
      done himself what he fears others will/would do
      (Freudian projection?) in his essay (on his page) 'The
      Integrity Paradigm!' What you say? Merely steal ideas
      from true outdoorsmen such as Horace Kephart and
      George Sears who were preaching (and practicing)
      light-weight outdoorsmanship over one hundred years
      before Jardine. Any of the other adventures that
      Jardine engaged in were simply a matter of his 'red
      sports car', i.e the manner in which he dealt with his
      mid-life crisis(es?) and the realization that he could
      no longer 'hack' working with the true 'whiz kids' of
      NASA. In the coming months and years many will ooh and
      aah and others will continue to quote him as a 'guru'
      of light-weight backpacking. An ever-growing number of
      us will see him for what he really was/is, a flim-flam
      man plain and simple.
