I’ve gotten in touch with some great guys who are installing WiFi in shelters in Louisiana, and have decided to make a trip out there in my car to work with them.
Being outside the Palo Alto area will likely disrupt my attempts to get placed with Red Cross, so I plan to drop by the Red Cross office today and have them stop my application from going onwards. When I check in to the farm where I will be staying in LA, I will also check in with the Red Cross there and let them know that if/when it makes sense for me to transition from tech work to shelter work, I’m ready to do so.
This trip will be expensive, and I am on a tight budget, as I am still between jobs. I have set up a page here to answer the question some people have already asked me in person, “can I help with your trip?”.
I hope to drive out this afternoon and join the team Tuesday at midday.
