SOS: Help Needed for a Friend–Ham Operator KJ4HYD

Possum Hunter (long time member of Yahoo Vandwellers and founder/owner of Facebook Vandwellers)...  has lost everything but the clothes on his... back and his wife and daughter. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Possum is the large man in camo jacket and hat, and his wife and daughter are standing next to him looking at the building.

Good time to Pay Forward if you can. I will do all I can to help him. He has been a very good friend to me and many others.

In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles? Maybe. Still healing from shoulder and trying to decide.
