Comments My years in the Canal Zone were so special! It is fun reminiscing about those days, which is why I am signing the Guest Book.

We are trying to find anyone that helped with the Chief Aptakisic. Some of us sailed her to New York for the Bicentennial in 1976, but MANY people helped behind the scenes prior to the trip who made the whole thing safely happen. It would never have happened without each of you! What a huge undertaking!

Then many tried to keep her going after she returned.

We are just gathering memories. Two special people, DELORUS SOULE and CAPTAIN WHITEHEAD, have since passed away. We wouldn't have made the trip without them both.

I would love to find Jim Reed. He was one of the three men aboard. He was a great photographer and worked at the Printing Press on the Pacific Side.

Thanks for any help with Jim or anyone onethat has some memories to share!

Comments I just surfed in from the deserts of Arabia. Yeah Im in the military still. Active duty Air Force. The Air Force brought me into Panama from 84-90. The TIME OF MY LIFE! Viewing your awsome photo collection took me away from these sand dunes for about an hour. I can still smell the sweet rains of Panama, taste the rum n cokes on the beach, and still see the faces of ALL THE BEAUTIFUL PANAMENIAN PEOPLE. Thanks for lifting my spirits, and bringing me back to Panama even if it was only for a moment. God Bless Panama and Its People. Party On!!!!

Our 35th is coming soon and if anyone is interested, I can still play el guitar, bass, or drums. Got the old Ludwigs in the garage that I practice one all the time, a Fender Bass and okay size Amp, or the Strat and Amp for putting together a band and playing at the party for fun. Any takers or interested in such an venture let me now. Can you say Cheese! Okay.... back to work.

Comments I lived on Howard AFB from 1984-1988. I have to say that coming back to the states was huge dissapointment. Although we missed out on some of the "up to date and happening trends" because we lived in Panama, nothing can compare to the simplicity of life and the beautiful surroundings. I'm looking for my best friend Sherri Erickson, she had a brother named Joe.We all went to Curundu together and had I stayed, I would have graduated from BHS in 1992. If anyone out there knows Sherri or has anything in common with me, please send me an e-mail at deborah.bot-vasquez@homeq.com. Hasta! Debbie Bot
