A picture is worth a thousand words

4-1 BDT IBOL Delivery

That’s folks from 4-1 INF BCT, dropping off IBOL’s and some other humanitarian assistance to one of the small villages not too far from here. At some point, we started to remove address information from the boxes, and moves the bundles in the boxes — much easier to manhandle that way. But yeah, that’s a village-worth of IBOL’s and other HA, all stacked up. And smiles. Lots of smiles.

We built the last 4 pallets tonight, too. We finished after dark. I’ll go back and take pictures again in a couple of days, when my arms have recovered enough to hold a camera. We built 4 x pallets, each with ~266 bundles. You do the math and tell me how many boxes we just carried.

I found a special bundle that just had to be shown off. Anyone recognize this one?

Anyone? Anyone?

Signet found her special one, too. Pretty cool.

    Wow – it’s great seeing a delivery picture! And those photos of the pallets – you guys sure did work hard! If there’s any fixings left over from last month, I think you all deserve another IBOL sundae!

      Hmmmm. I’d be willing to look around for something — it is the weekend, and I do have a 14 mile run set for Saturday night. Sygnett & Iowa are still recovering from their attack on a monster box (IBOL size) of homemade cookies my sister sent them; they may not be ready yet!

    Hey Art,

    Regarding the “wish they were all cookies” comment,
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/abuzavi/3971881546/in/photostream/ . Be careful what you wish for; by the time all of the cookies got there, you’d probably be back in Hawai’i. You know how things snowball when you start wishing … .

    Let’s see – 266 bundles on each pallet. The bundles I sent weight about 8 LBS each. So, you loaded literally tons of IBOLS. No wonder you are tired!

    Awesome! So great to see at least a tiny bit of the distribution.
