Dear Will:

Can you post this on the blog please. This is for PROJECT ECUADOR, the most incredible, intense lifeguarding experience I've ever had. The Avenues on steroids [and I don't mean Redondo!] Lots of rescues, GREAT comaraderie with the Ecuadorians and other volunteers, warm water [2 deg. south of the equator], SURF, and the wonderful people of Ecuador who will thank you.

If anyone needs information regarding this event have them call me or e-mail me and I'll get more specific.

Thank you. This is really important. Lives will be saved and isn't this what it's all about?
