    Unfortunately, in many places in the world, law enforcement could easily be the problem, or a part of it. In many other places, they are incapable of enforcing laws. We seldom give thought to how well we do in the US, to have our right to private property effectively guaranteed.

    Note that Tom has not said anything negative about Kiribati, and until he is on US shores, IMO we should leave it at that:)

    Just one more comment-- Tom has been self-funding this entire dxpedition, and has previously turned down offers of assistance before he even left the States, so kindly don't misinterpret anyone's generosity as being rebuffed. I don't. And he turned down two generous offers, twice.

    That's just the way he wants to do it, and we need to respect that.

    The focus for Tom, I presume, is getting back Stateside and sorting out his future plans.

    We should standby to make sure that happens.

    Imperiled is too big of a word for me.

    Does that mean he got all his radios stolen on a dxpedition? I hope he's ok...

    I'm confused.
    If he is declining offers why is there a website to raise money for him?

    https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tom-callas

    Maybe someone decided that it would be a nice thing to raise money for KC0W without his knowledge. As much as I would like to help I'm not doing so until I know for sure the money is going to help him or until he comes on here to let us know where to send the money to.
