Cliff,

I appreciate you more than you as these guys are looking to me for
their next meal and I will do whatever I can do to keep them in gas and
food. This has been a TRUE grass rootd campaign right down to the CAT5
cable. We have all used our own stock of goods and we have gotten no
help from anywhere short of a few donations that totaled about $2000.00 .

  If you send your donation to my paypal account we will have use of
those funds now. Then I can make a call and tell the boys not to use
my/their credit card to buy the metal (angle iron...etc) with personal
money - - - -- - come get my PayPal card.

THANKS A MILLION
Mac

Carl,

  I really have a lot to say on this very subject, but I have too many
other things going on - - - like path calcs and getting the right gear
for the job and about 24 men to pat on the back and a personal hug for
each of them everyday as I see them. Make no mistake about it - - - - -
- these men are the unsung heroes!!

Funding? FUNDING?
 3 men from this list is all that have donated  and short of that
there has been no funding!! Macs Farm fed and watered every night thus
far except last night as we are in Ponchatula, Louisiana and 3 nights my
brothers and sisters came over and cooked to give Sharon a break as she
has washed clothes, cooked, mopped the floors everyday, answered the
phones, ran Maximum Access, ran Dixie Lift truck services and then made
sure she had what she needed for the next day.

 Damn, I guess we will all be under a shelter next looking for a meal. 
I was wondering if there are no funding available to help these fine men


and myself? How about some kind of fund raising?

 We are buying angle iron  cinder blocks this morning and all that it 
takes to build a heavy non penetrating roof mount to place atop of a 
University Library. This is being built by my team and you wouldnt 
believe the talents and abilities here. We have a mobile lab and a 
mobile shop that is amazing. Truthfully - - - - - there has been a 
divine hand guiding this whole thing and it is more than evident in my

Rick,

  I will shoot you the info to get you base camp, but our sleeping 
arrangements are less than desireable and we have men sleeping 
everywhere so come prepared for whatever.  I also am going to have 
another changing out of crew and may be in need of some more volunteers 
by the weekend. If any of you are interested in DONATING YOUR TIME  GAS 
please shoot me an email off list stating your abilities using the KISS 
method ( keep it simple stupid)


  I can not have anyone and everyone just roll into camp. If you do not 
have authorization from me - - do not come. I have experienced this and 
allowed a couple guys into camp because they came from so far.I am 
trying to keep us at a maneagble and efficeient level and not overwhelm 
the Camel we are riding. We are now EOC certified and have badges to 
wear around our necks for identification. We have a FULL PASS permit 
given to us by EOC Mississippi. We had a group of men roll back into 
camp this morning that was at the farm for a week and then they went 
home to take care of some business and are back!!!


Thanks,
Mac

In addition to what's below, fwiw:

return for anything I can provide in equal value of exposure or additional
support during the show... space, ads, whatever makes sense to get that
pallet of equipment off the dock on the road to NOLA. 

I've been talking to a few of the more conspicuously absent names for that
donation list about this already, but haven't had any firm takers so far. If
you are on the fence about doing something, lmk and we'll find a way to make
it worthwhile to ship out whatever you have that Mac needs and can get into
the field ASAP.

2) If anyone sends Mac / Churchofthe.Net / WISPA a donation of $350 or more,
I'll comp you a pass for our full conference if you haven't signed up yet.
After you get your receipt from Mac, just send me an email and we'll sort it
out. 

3) If you don't have the $350 to kick in, but are on the fence about
pitching in from afar or just going there to help for even a few solid
hours, same difference. Send me an email afterwards and we'll work it out,
but either way just do something NOW.

btw, a few weeks back someone here was talking about having a WISPA meeting

I am coming down your way Mac. Expect me Thursday late or more likely
Friday. I will either come with Rick Harnish or load a trailer of my own and
bring it your way. Either way I am coming to help any way I can for a few
days.

For those of you who want to help, cash is the word of the day. Get Mac
some money. He won't tell you this but I know he has spent several thousand
of his own money running this deal. It is time for all of you to help. Go to
http://crisis.wispa.org/ and you can send through the Churchofthe.Net 501c3
there if you need the tax write-off or is only way your company can help.
Send it directly to Mac's Paypal if the tax credit is not required. His
email for paypal is  [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Jon Price of ISPCON has sent us $2000 to help. That is a challenge I think.
If any of the rest of you have done well in this business and have it to
spare then please send Mac's group some cash. Last I heard he needs lots of
Cat 5 also. So let's get it together guys. Mac and many others down south
are working to help these folks. Let's help them. They need food and water
too. We need to get them money to operate and to live. Until Uncle Sam steps
in (maybe never) then we will have to do whatever we can to help with what
we can put together ourselves.

Here is the challenge to all. I want Mac to have $10K to work with before
Monday morning. Get to work! Get him some cash!
Thanks guys,

 arrangements are less than desireable and we have men sleeping
 everywhere so come prepared for whatever.  I also am going to have
 another changing out of crew and may be in need of some more
 volunteers by the weekend. If any of you are interested in DONATING
 YOUR TIME  GAS please shoot me an email off list stating your
 abilities using the KISS method ( keep it simple stupid)

   I can not have anyone and everyone just roll into camp. If you do
 not have authorization from me - - do not come. I have experienced
 this and allowed a couple guys into camp because they came from so
 far.I am trying to keep us at a maneagble and efficeient level and not
 overwhelm the Camel we are riding. We are now EOC certified and have
 badges to wear around our necks for identification. We have a FULL
 PASS permit given to us by EOC
