Editor's Comment: Every year at this time there is a nationwide deployment of public school teachers, who head off into the most remote parts of the country to work. There are small little public schools in even the most remote and hardest to reach areas of the country. The National Air Service has been flying these teachers to the closest airfields all week. From there it's often a canoe ride to a trial head, and then horseback for a couple of hours up a trail to downtown Boondocks. And when they get there, there's often no electricity or drinking water, a general lack of everything, and so on. It's a yearly migration pattern that repeats itself every year at this time. And for the record, traffic in Panama City will be a complete and total cluster on Monday morning, 8 March 2010, so plan accordingly.
