Hi folks,
I left home on September 1st to go to the hurricane effected area and help out. I am still here. So far I have been assigned to Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas..

I have seen mother nature at her worst and mankind at it's best..

Today makes 44 days away from home but it's worth it.. These good people in the hurricane destructive area are in complete misery. Most of them have lost everything they had, home, car, food, clothing, medicines,much loved pets and many lost family members..

But the amazing thing is the attitude of the victims,, they are already rebuilding and reconstructing their lives... THEY ARE NOT DEFEATED !!

I was just so homesick for the RV forums that I had to take a moment and say hi to all of you and hopefully will have time to sit down and catch with the latest from the forums later tonight..

Take care and if you are a believer, say a prayer for these people.

take care, John

Do you mean you have been through this area (Baton Rouge) and have not even dropped a note???

Just kiddin...

But if you do get back to the Baton Rouge area John, drop me a PM or something. Would like to meet up with ya and shoot the bull. (I'd bet we BOTH can excel at that )

I too have been through, in and around a lot of the area hit by Katrina. Will be back in Pass Christian, MS next weekend (Oct.21-23) to do some more "Cleanup/tear out" at a home Cathy's family has there.
