Today we visited with Erik Elsea from Cape Coral, FL - he's paddling the length of the Mississippi River to raise money for ShelterBox USA.  ShelterBox provides humanitarian aid in the form of family-sized tents and essential tools to start repairing and rebuilding homes.  ShelterBox USA is a rotary club project.
