    Go Gautier Gators!

    Howdy folks. I just returned this morning from a 30 day disaster relief detail through work (Cleveland Fire Dpt.). I was in Southern Mississippi from Sept. 5 through Oct. 5. It would literally take me pages to give you an idea of what's going on down there, and what I've seen over the last 30 days, but there is one very important thing that you should all know, that the media isn't telling you. The people of Southern Mississippi are some of the best people you will ever meet in your life. Everyone had a story of the disaster, but no matter what, EVERYONE had a positive outlook on things to come. The eye of the storm actually went through Mississippi, leaving an unbelievable wake of destruction in it's path, but as quickly as the storm left, the communities themselves began to come together. These are the REAL heroes. You won't hear in the media about the good folks of Louisiana or Mississippi who are actually working to help themselves and their communities. That's not news worth telling, I guess. We worked our a$$es off for 30 days while were down there, but you better believe the locals were right there working along side us. Also, if you have not donated, and you are still thinking about it, give to the Salvation Army. FEMA was pretty useless down there, the Red Cross was helping in huge numbers, but the Salvation Army was all over the place. I don't know why they don't get the publicity the Red Cross does, but they did every bit as much, if not more in the time that I was down there. Any who, I could babble on forever. It was the experience of a life time and I'll never forget it.

    If anyone is interested, I have tons of pics.

    In an ironic turn of events, while I was away, I asked my wife's little brother to drive my wrx every now and then so it wasn't just sitting for 30 days (the wife hates driving stick). I was gone for less then a week when my wife informed me my bro'-in-law had blown the tranny. Sigh. Time to learn about new trannies...
