A Checkup on Life

Dear Friends,

Another Kanestergram from fabulous Kwajalein in theMarshall Islands.

All is well, with another week of pleasant weather and sunshine and fun on the beach.

Sorry for those of you stuck in the middle of winter.

This e-mail is intended to clean up my address book again and see who has Microsoft Messenger and Yahoo!Messenger. Also, if you have a different e-mail address, please let me know so that I can include it.

The Kanestergram will hopefully take on a different form in the next several months. I hope to send you video/audio e-mails. That's why I need to know who can support the audio/video files before I start sending the message. Also, those of you with decrompression programs, please let me know. DigitalCameras are fun, and if I don't send video, then I'll certainly start sending pictures.

What I hope to do is send the sights and sounds of traveling through the pacific, and show you what I can of the different islands and places around here. Just something to do to keep me busy in my off time.

As for my website, well it is still dull and boring, and I haven't had access to it since WBS switched over to the GO Network, but I finally think I fixed my access problems, and should start updating very shortly.

I hope to hear from you, so please write back and let me know.

The Island Life for Me

Greetings friends of the Kanester,

This is the first official Kanestergram from the island of Kwajalien in the Marshall Islands, and it is evreything I expected it would be plus more.

The weather is beautiful, the scenery is great, including my own ocean front view from my room.

I pretty much dove in head first with all the activities on the island. I started my first shift of work, I am signed up to take the boating class, I start my basic scuba diving class soon, and I got my first sunburn - all over my body.

There's a lot of sun here, being close to the equator and all. I learned that the hard way.I have a pretty cool roommate named Eric. He's the guy who looks after our water source on the island and he's also the one who's getting me in to diving.

The guys at our TV / Radio station are also pretty cool, and I am getting in to the swing of things just fine.

Hope you all are well!
