Bro. Schimian wrote this piece a while ago, and I am happy to report, he made it safely. He is currently enjoying the west coast and if you're curious, he did meet his volunteer obligation. I should also mention, being in California, Bro. Brian has a great presentation you might consider for your lodge. ~RHJ
