Yeah, I still want to make that documentary...

There are a handful more things that the people, especially the rubber farmers and others who engage in agroforestry on Aceh's West Coast still need: firefighting gear, like backpack water pumps would be very useful as there is a huge risk of losing young rubber trees to grass fires, and there is a tendency to set fire to clear debris or in land use/land ownership conflicts in Sumatra, and occasionally they get disastrously out of control. More seeds and other propagules of their crops, more training, better logistics...

And I want to document what I did, and do it as Charlie Wilson often did, with a beautiful girl on my arm, wide-eyed with delight at the romance of serving humanity in an exotic locale. I am sure there is another Snowflake out there for me somewhere, but this time we will bring the fundamentalists jobs and not guns....

*** Warning, the last link includes PORN! I absolutely think that Erica Campbell would make a great replacement for Angelina Jolie as UNHCR goodwill ambassador. Erica has donated to both human and horse rescue funds and a girl with shared values, a great rack and a deep pocketbook easily wins my heart.
