Daltry, Sawyer & Rachel in Portland, OR via 'Skype' / Palmyra Atoll

On my first trip to Palmyra Atoll (June 2001),
we stayed in vinyl tents that got so humid inside
my video camcorder would shut itself down.

The single generator ran 8-10 hours per day
and each outhouse had a bucket of calcium hydroxide (lime)
for one to pour a 'scoop' over one's completed business.

You've come a long way Pilgrim.
