Title: Help me and Shenzi evacuate from Senegal
Post by: Waves be Good on September 17, 2014, 07:51:04 PM
(I accidentally posted this in a less-viewed board first. Just doubling up here in case the wider audience can lend a hand)

Hey Crew,

My wife and I, who many of you know, are leaving Senegal because of the spread of Ebola in West Africa. Because we have already left the country, friends from our surf community are helping us to evacuate our belongings.

We always surfed with a bunch of the Delta pilots and they'll be bringing three suitcases of our most important possessions back to JFK/NYC this Friday the 19th in the afternoon.

We need somebody to meet the pilots, collect the bags and take them via taxi to my wife's sister in Queens.

We tried putting this up on taskrabbit and recruiting people who don't know us; but I think they were sketched out. I literally packed the bags via webcam with my Danish neighbor who runs the Ngor Island surf camp and these pilots have a lot of integrity.

We're happy to pay somebody $100 plus the taxi fair to Queens (about 35 minutes from JFK, towards Laguardia).

If any of you know us and would be willing to help; we'd be so grateful. Leaving Senegal in these conditions sucks. Just like it sucks watching our community in Liberia in free fall.

Please send me a PM if you're able to help.

Cheers!

We are now looking for someone to help on Wednesday afternoon. In case that works better for anyone's schedule.

Also, we now live in Bali. So if you hook us up, maybe you gotta place to crash sometime down the line  8)

What's the update here?  Not sure we can pick it up today, but if the stuff is left somewhere we could over the next day or two.

Got it covered, @Shacky  - flight is on time for 3:30 this afternoon, and the Delta pilot got a hold of me to make arrangements.
