Hmm, we'll consider it but honestly when we head to rural Haiti 
deployment(s) without reliable mail services for some one-time orphanage 
deployment/update visits starting this wkd, the above might not work.

I supposed we could consider dev keys by text/SMS in theory?

Realistically I say far better to invite you down to carry them in by 
motorcycle--Haiti's a shockingly beautiful, eternally misunderstood and 
increasingly stable place--while Spirit's flights from the US remain not 
so much more than last year's $59.
