Somebody hold up the Ft.

Just wanted everybody to know that I will be out of town next week. Actually, I am leaving tomorrow. For those of you who don't already know, I will depart tomorrow afternoon (4pm. or so) for Matamoros, Mexico. Somebody needs to hold down this Fort... (since we have so much trouble in this Chapter and all .....).

Everybody take care, have a good week and after tomorrow, I will check back in next friday (time permitting... still gotta be at work on sat/sunday at 6am... yuck).

e... here....

No misbehaving in our Chapter... misbehave in your own Chapter. hehe


Actually, while I am down there, I hope to see if I can test drive... or atleast check out one of their 4-door Rangers... that we can't get up here. From the WWW, they look pretty neat.

Have fun, STan!!! And do not drink the water. Seriously, I wouldn't brush my teeth with it and if you eat out ask for a bottle of water. Otherwise they will give you a glass of tap water with ice. A lot of us came back from a business trip from down there last year feeling quezy for days. All I did was brush my teeth with the tap water. Via condios, mi amigo!

Hola,

Well, I'm back from the trip... okay, so actually I've been back for a week, but school has REALLY been kicking my hide this week. Anyways, finally finished with some of that work and got a chance to catch up with you guys.

We had a great trip, and we got alot of work done. For those of you who don't know, I went to Matamoros, Mexico to "Angels of God" childrens home. There was alot of work to do down there, and I'm glad to say our group pulled together and got a fair amount done, atleast what we could do in the one week we were there. Not to go into a long schpell, I'll just give a brief overview of the projects that I lead.
Monday, I found out I was the only one of our group that knew how to drive a tractor, so I brushhogged 50 acres.... with a 5' brushhog. lol, abour 8 hours... the tractor was nice though, it was a 1942 Case that had been restored (hence the reason it took so long). My next project was about 250 yards worth of fenceline that had to be cleared, so that made for about 12 or so hours worth of chainsawing and loading/dumping etc... the last day, we just built a couple of desks for the dorms.

This is just the projects that my group and I spearheaded. The other groups did alot of painting and tree planting etc...

As I said, it was really a great trip, and I cannot wait to go back. I've got many pictures to show at our next gtg and many stories to tell.

I'll get to the other threads soo, but for now, I'm off to bed. Would you believe I have to work on sunday?? For no holiday pay either! Yuk!

Adios amigos,
STan

glad to see you made it back in one piece and no holes!!!! hahaha!! I have a friend that goes to central mexico quite frequently for mission trips, he is an electrician, so he already has all of his work cut out for him before he even leaves.

that is a real good thing you're doing, and I am sure you will be greatly rewarded one way or another. I for one, am glad to have such a person as yourself as a part of our little group.

welcome home!!

Leave it to you to take a vacationh thatis just more work... but then many of us would think that is an enjoyable vacation. I enjoy running equipment like that, and the fact of the help you gave is enjoyable as well. I guess I could see myself doing something like that...
