Pearlington Mississippi: The town that didn't exist.

Somehow Pearlington never made it onto a federal map so no one went to check on it. It was discovered by a chopper that sent a man down on the rescue hook it investigate "something white". He was met by a woman who was hanging laundry. She informed him of where he was.

This one involved a whole community. From the church Deacon to the Fire Chief. We were so far in the sticks that the roads were named for the families that have lived at the ends for generations.
 
These people were the nicest I have ever met. Period. They all had there own water. They helped us build showers for volunteers who were there to rescue dogs. Then they opened thier homes, the church and the Firehouse to everyone for home cooking and HOT BATHS!

Eddie with The Mystery Trucker and Pork Chop. Guess who's who.
Trucker could get things that weren't available and Pork Chop was....    there.

We spent most of our time building showers that we designed just for the occasion. 8 sheets of OSB, 24 2X4s and some PVC. Just add water and you have 4 shower stalls in 2 hours. Finding a renewable water source was always a challenge.
