• Testimonial

  • “I was in an auto accident in 2005 in which I sustained third and fourth degree burns over 50% of my body. I was given a 3% chance of survival. The Firefighters Burn Institute has helped me immensely on my road to recovery. Had it not been for Cliff Haskell’s vision to bring a burn center to the Sacramento area there is a very likely little chance I would be here. I have been truly blessed to have the Firefighters Burn Institute, its staff and leadership, who have supported my recovery and given me the opportunity to give back to others going through circumstances similar to mine.” — Christopher Cvitanov

    Days 42 and 43
    Days off in New Orleans
    Well what can you say about the place;
    1) anything goes.....
    2) lots of interesting history

    I hung out in the French quarter and walked around.... A lot!
    I watched a couple parades and did a lot of people watching. The Architecture is really interesting and is exactly as the movies portray. I did go through the Katina museum which was interesting. My accommodations was at the hostel in which I got the top bunk in a very small room so I got out early in the morning, just to get out. All in all I enjoyed my visit but I am anxious to get started on my final 14 days of riding. Hope you are all well.
