Flash Drive Drive Update

A big thank you (THANK YOU!) goes out to Brian McAdoo, an associate professor in Earth Sciences and Geography at Vassar College. Brian was recently in American Samoa and Samoa offering his tsunami expertise and brought along nine flash drives he collected from colleagues at Vassar. This brings our total up to 20.

In addition Brian also brought with him two packages of Starbucks coffee for Cale, who practically weeped with joy. Samoa has been with out drinkable coffee grounds for more than a month. Cale was resorting to instant coffee. He was not a happy camper.

We were introduced to Brian by RPCV Jordan Jobe who say his lecture "Tsunamis: Planning for Low-Probability, Catastrophic Risks" at Yale University. Thanks for the introduction Jordan.

I really hope your box from us shows up soon. I didn't figure sending it early September would be that risky for a before November delivery since the last ones showed up pretty quickly.
