Headed to New Orleans

Thursday, August 30, 2012

The Disaster Relief Crew that I am on is being sent to New Orleans tomorrow for recovery/cleanup after Hurrican Isaac. Friday I will travel for about 7 hours to get there. We will serve until the middle of next week. I am on a chainsaw crew, so I will get plenty of exercise each day. However, we will eat whatever meals are provided by the Red Cross or other organizations that are set up to help with the cleanup.
I'll be starting off September with lots of fitness time!

    Travel safe and be careful with that chainsaw! You'll be working so hard, you'll probably need extra calories, so I wouldn't worry about what food you'll have!
