    Help get Chain Mail Santa back on board this year

    by slayergeek » Fri Jan 08, 2016 12:47 pm

    Apparently Martin Geckeler (AKA Chain Mail Santa) was not going to go this year because he could not afford it. When word leaked out on Facebook that this was the case, people started hounding him to create a Go Fund Me Page to help him out. It would not be the same without Chain Mail Santa after all.

    He has semi reluctantly, and rather late done so. This was just setup today and I and others have already contributed. If you don't want to miss the 70K ritual of seeing Chain Mail Santa enjoying his metal self in ways that few can, you should contribute ASAP and help get him on the ship!

    There's already a few forum members here who have donated or are going to do it, and honestly the more of us who chip in a fiver or more, the better the chances. We can totally do this.

    I'd hate to see the children (AKA the newbies) missing out on a time honored tradition of seeing Chain Mail Santa passed out in various places. I've also met him in the airport going home last year, and he seemed like a very nice person.

    When I first read "chain mail" I didn't clue in that it had to do with the armour. I thought it was one of those silly send 5 of these letter to find love or for good luck. I was wondering why Santa is involved in these sorts of gimmicks.

    He's mentioned that $1500 would be the bare minimum if he can get an $800 cabin and $700 airfare. That airfare might be possible, but I don't know about the cabin, he'd have to find someone willing to sell him a spot in a cheap one. There's a guy trying to offload one for $800, but there's also $100 or $300 fee on top of that (it might be $300 now since it's so late).

    So I don't think it's too outlandish, but he could go on less in a pinch for sure. Plenty of people will be buying him beers, anyway, I assume, and he can sleep wherever... as he's shown us so many times before.

    70k should give him a discount maybe for being an unofficial mascot, heh.

    $700 airplane can be lowered ; because of oil decrease the flights costs have been highly lowered.
    Berlin Miami departure 1st; back on the 9th : 471€.

    If you live in Berlin.
    Mail Santa lives in small place close to Hailderberg. It would cost him €200 to get to Berlin by train. And get from Miami to FL = costs.
    Besides, he will be buying his tickets last minute, more expensive for sure that today.
    I have been to 5 cruises flying from Europe. You really need minimum of €2000 for cabin, flights, get to and back from airport, food, drinks (not even alcoholic) during the trip and before boarding.

    I agree with Sara Marie - he is official mascot of 70k :bangers:

    Yeah, living away from an airport that is a major hub really does raise the cost of flying. I can say that when I've looked up flying to Europe (about the same distance) it takes around $500 off if I just take a Greyhound to Toronto. Santa lives straight down from Frankfurt, he should take a train up there and then fly, but in my experience an inter-city train ride in Europe isn't cheap.

    Anyway, I think if it comes close, someone will hook him up with a floor or couch to sleep on, and many people will be buying him beers.

    I'm surprised to see how much he's already raised. I think he'll make it! :beerbang:

    well, he still has about 120km to Frankfurt :) one way
    Anyway, we do all we can and he can already book from the amount I see :)

    The cost of the train really depends if you take regional or IC or the ICE.
    Although seeming as he'd be traveling to the airport after the weekend he couldn't use the weekender pass ticket which saves a lot of money if you use only regional.

    Good idea, I passed it onto him via Facebook. I hope he pulls this off. I fear he has waited too long.

    Actually he got every he needed. Was in Florida with his ship passage secure and he got robbed. From what I hear he has the cloths on his back and his passport. He should still be on board, but not a great start to his trip.

    Be careful everybody ,Miami is just like any other tourist town with many criminals,they problably target some black t-shirt people now because it screams tourist .I sure the local thieves are aware of the metal cruises now that so many have been leaving from there.In the beginning they problably just thought black shirts were just poor Flordia Metal heads and didn't bother with them.

    This is disgusting.....There is no place for scumbags like this in society.... :evil: .

    Someone posted a "Chainmail Santa sighting" to one of the Facebook groups but I don't think they realized what was actually going on in this picture. Judging by the high heeled boots beside the dudes on the bench that are going through his stuff I don't think he was their first victim of the day. Aren't there any police in South Beach!?!....can't believe people would have the balls to just shake people down out in the open like this...and in broad daylight no less!! But then again I'm just a small town naive Canadian.

    Is this really is a picture of him getting robbed. If your interpretation is correct, then we need to get the police involved. Saying my stuff was stolen doesn't get you very far. Saying my stuff was stolen, and here is picture of the crime when it happened, and most of the faces are clearly identifiable is another matter.

    That area in the picture is a place to avoid or just not have any contact with the people.I walked by there and the people where all "hey can I talk to you a minute " ,I am very tall and thin and until I speak most people assume I am a Northern European person in Miami during the cruise.I just walk away,I hear that whiney shit all the time ,I grew around people like that.This explains why I mainly listen to Black Metal these days lol.

    Sucks to hear but yeah like stated.thieves are aware of the random Europeans over for 70k and targeting them.miami is rough in a lot of areas anyway.same shit happens at European metal festivals btw.best device drink in. Group.dont approach dodgy looking groups on your own.myself and Paul have gotten around rough situations in the past by letting said goons know in advance we are people who aren't gonna take shit.
