I'm leaving Cape Cod, Tuesday January 19,2010, down the coast to the Asbury Park area of New Jersey...Atlantic City area.
Will be in Jersey no later than 24 hours later.
Simple:  Anyone needing a ride (going my way) regarding *anything and anyone* earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, call me as soon as possible.
SO, OFFERED:  Free ride, would like gas money but will not expect anything in return.  4 door car, trunk, mid sized sedan.

Seriously, plain and simple.

I'm still trying to figure out how this is going to help the country of Haiti. 

I envision Bill driving into Port Au Prince with several sacks of groceries.  The cheers are deafening.  Somewhere, Radio Gaga is being played over a loudspeaker.  A small, famished 5 year old girl walks up.  She has just lost her parents.  Her brother is in a local hospital, or what is left of one.  She is handed a sack containing a 10 pack of Kit Kats, a bag of Hot Fries, 2 cans of Rotel, a jar of Nutella, and a loaf of Almond bread.

Tears in her eyes, she is unable to verbally thank Bill, she is overcome with emotion.

Mr. Wave,
You were spot on 99%.  Only problem, .....Mr. Wanker would have preferred 'Thunder Road' or 'Born To Run' playing over the loudspeakers.

You'd be helping them more if you stayed away.  The last thing those people need is Springsteen.

I hate all this 'lets all help the earthquake people'.

If I was the head of a country in an earthquake zone I would, at the least, have a massive stash of cash and a contingency plan for when things like this happen.

What if the stash and the plans were in the bottom drawer of the file cabinet that's now buried below 80 feet of cement. 

Just curious Moog, what would you do in Haiti with all that cash and some plans with an escape map on them?  The airport is closed, so probably most of the stores are, too.

I would simply have a sheet of paper.  No money or anything else.  That sheet of paper would simply say:  "Swim north".

Why do I get the sense that the person who would go for the free ride would end up in the trunk.  In pieces.

That's part of the problem.  In the past, leaders of Haiti have taken the stash of cash for themselves.

I feel for those poor buggers in Haiti. The last time I had 30 aftershocks, I couldn't find my house either.
