Thanks for your offer to bring a second suitcase with humanitarian
supplies to the PCIA Conference in Uganda. We would especially like
sheets and blankets to give to our orphans (and others) but anything is
greatfully appreciated. There is no need to bring things to the ETHOS
conference since you will probably be limited to one bag on domestic
flights. You get two bags of 50 pounds on international flights, or on
domestic flights connecting within four hours to an intenational flight,
so says one airline.
We would love to have you visit our project in Gulu. I'm not sure
yet when I can arrive in Uganda but our staff can take good care of you
if I am not there. Also, Larry Winiarski and Nancy Hughes and maybe
others will probably visit Gulu too. I would love to see you succeed
with a bullet proof gassifier that will work under primitive conditions.
I know that you have worked for many years to accomplish this and I
think that you are getting close. Mud and clay might work, but don't
give up on fired ceramics. It's not really that hard.
See you at ETHOS, Ken
