Relief Work

I got an opportunity to go in to help some in Mississippi tomorrow. So I'll go in to work for a few hours in the morning and then drive in.

Tonight I spent three hours shopping in Costco and Walmart buying water, food, and a generator. I've loaded up the van. The plan is to drive in for about seven hours. I've heard that there is a checkpoint. I've heard they'll let us in as long as we are bringing things in. Finding gas on the way in may also be a challenge.

There is no water nor power. Our goal is to drop off the supplies, stay a night, and ride back out.

I'll take some pictures. I've also heard that cell coverage is spotty so I'm not sure how much I can post here until I get back.

So, I'm going in...
