Well, they've got to allow us to come down with supplies and put our labor into getting things started. I am deeply saddened by these newer reports, but that hurricane was a hardcore 3 day affair of constant high winds, and some of the structures didn't stand a chance. Its a miracle anyone is really doing okay.

Rick and Cheri:
If you pull off this relief effort, please contact me with complete information. My next book is going to be the Saltwater Angler's Guide to Central America and the Yucatan, and I want to get the entire story into the Belize chapter. The book is being published by Wilderness Adventures Press;

I would love to have photos of the entire operation, if possible. I will pay for all shipping, etc., and return the originals to you.

This is an important thing to have in the book, as it shows my readers what the people of Belize are all about.

Hang Tough,
