Well, it's a long story but I'm divorced, retired and living in my van (and having a most excellent time, btw). I had to sell the printer that I printed my El Cap route panos with so my pano business was slowly shutting down.

BUT!

The guy I sold the printer to, Danny McCarty, is a professional photographer and an excellent printer. He's doing the printing and mailing for me. My prices had to go up since I'm now paying Danny to print and mail the panos for me.

Any, I just modified my website, added back in the most popular panos, changed the prices and I'm back in business!

HudonPanos.com or ElCapPanos.com will get you there.

Mark,

I've heard good things about your pano's and wanted to check them out. Know anything about the site being down?

Zach,

Yeah, the bill for the site came due and I didn't have any money. I'm actually going to call them today to see what kind of deal I can get to get it back up.

Okay. I reworked some things and got it back up and running. It may take a few days but it's paid for for the next 5 years.

Now all I need is for a few people to BUY SOME PANOS!!! (hint, hint)

Cheers.

Hey Mark,

Have you ever considered putting up the Panos on etsy.com?

No, don't know anything about esty.

individuals and companies selling artsy crafty stuff.  I think it's pretty easy to set up and a lot of people are on it.  

Some climbing stuff on it...https://www.etsy.com/search?q=rock+climbing&order=most_relevant&view_type=gallery&ship_to=US

Bump for killer panos, and because I have a question for Mark that doesn't deserve a topic of it's own.

Was cruising your old ZM solo album and noticed that all of your hooks had a little bit of yellow spooge on the back...what gives? Gear marking? Grip? Misplaced snot rockets?

Gear marking epoxy. 

I had completely forgotten about those albums. I should add the routes I've done since. 

Buy some panos!!!!

Any chance of doing a Salathe/Golden Gate pano?  Seems like you've got most of the photos, just need topo lines?

It doesn't seem like you're taking requests, but I'd love a pano of Astroman. It's my goal to free climb it by the end of next year and a pano would help me keep motivated.

A good Salathe/Golden Gate topo doesn't fit my usual 12x33 framing. It would have to be bigger and thus more expensive. I don't own a wide format printer anymore so I have to have someone print them for me. He does a great job but it's a business for him also. 

I'd haveto explore the prefect Astroman framing. I'd need to get straight across from it. I'll investigate that when I'm there this spring.

While you're at it, how about a Rostrum pano?  I'd imagine it's pretty easy to get across from that one, as long as you have a good lens.

Roger that.

That sounds great Mark! I'm excited to see if you come up with anything.

Totally makes sense, thanks for the reply. If things ever change or you do a limited run post up here, I'd definitely be interested, even at a reasonably higher price.
