It will be a short update today. In part because it was a very unproductive day (we only worked from 9 to 12) and in part because in the mood I am in right now I think I may be too harsh on the group.
What I will say is that the half-day trip to New Orleans that has become sort of a tradition on BonaResponds' Gulf coast trips (at least those after the initial emergency was over) has ended . Today it became abundantly clear that many of the volunteers have not yet achieved the level or responsibility that is needed to earn time off in New Orleans.
It is unfortunate as it will almost assuredly mean that we will lose some volunteers for future trips, but it must be done. The potential risks are too great to chance such excursions.
