Haggai Improvements



Each time we return to Maui, it is interesting to note the improvements that have been made around Haggai. Some are small, some more significant, some affect us, most don't.


I have mentioned in the past that the volunteers have the use of three vans which we can sign out, so long as we car pool, that is post a sheet where you are going, and take other volunteers who wish to join you. This is also a great way to get to know the other volunteers better. The vans in the past have all been Ford Winstars of varying ages. Well this year the oldest Winstar has been replaced by a spanking new Dodge Caravan. Now a move from Ford to Chrysler in my opinion is a significant improvement. The air conditioning on the replaced Winstar was referred to as 2-40 - that is put at least 2 windows down and drive at least 40 miles per hour.
The daily weather temperature highs here in January are in the 79/84 range and it is very pleasant for sleeping, walking, working, etc, but cool for swimming if it is cloudy. This is not whining - just letting you know that working in non air conditioned areas is much more pleasant at this time of year.
Marlene and I are on call today until 9:30pm and we are expecting new participant arrivals, so this will be short. As you can see we have not been out to take many pictures to date.

HI Ralph
Yeah, if you can't get a Toyota Honda or a Mazda, even,you need to take whatever you can get. A Dodge is a step up from a burrow for sure.
