Late Night Packing

My flight leaves in five hours. I haven't gone to bed yet. I have to pack the computer and then do the little trick with the sewer pipes and the garden hose before I leave. The mosquito net is hanging up on the back porch, having been soaked with Permethrin. In the morning I will pack it with my walkie talkies, GPS receiver, and digital camera. Geeks on safari.

Good news! I found the cable to download my pictures from the camera! Even so, due to popular demand (2 whole comments from Mighty Bob) I have decided to keep illustrating using Microsoft Paint. It's a less-is-more kinda thing. I'm sure that one day they will be worth like, lots of money.

I am excited about the possibility of seeing the Mayan ruins in Copán. The conference I am attending Thursday through Saturday is in a city called "Copán Ruins". I hope the conference isn't actually in the ruins. 'Cause my presentation requires PowerPoint and I figure the Mayans were Mac users anyway.

We are also going to try and be in Danta Uno on Wednesday, October 1. This will be the end of the first billing cycle, which could be interesting. I hope it goes well. I would appreciate your prayers for our safety, for ordained meetings and networking, and for knowledge and skill to repair what ever is wrong with the system. Oh yes, and we are planning to meet our Honduran lawyer too. I have to get some sleep...
