I'm so excited to have contacted my good friend Tom Rucker a.k.a. "Trucker". Tom and I both played in the NIU marching band and NIU steel band together. I recently found out that he is on the island of Trinidad and Tobago playing in a steel band directed by another mutual friend of ours Seion Gomez. They are preparing for Carnival and working long hours no doubt. I have to admit hearing about Tom's blog (and the fact that it is becoming to difficult to send pictures vie email) inspired me to create this one. You can read all about Tom's adventures here:
Only in this day of age can I be in Japan, conversing with my friend from NIU, while he is in Trinidad.
