"Just arrived at the location of the Habitat build in Las Cruces, New Mexico. For the new week, my wife, Jean Wilcox, and I will be painting, sawing and nailing in our first experience with Habitat for Humanity. All of the other volunteers are old hands at this event, so we hope that they show us the ropes. Everyone has come from all over the country to participate in this build, and we are all parked in vans, RVs and campers. It makes for a little instant "community". On Tuesday, we start in earnest, so I will report back with pictures and notes."
