Electronics Are Not Waterproof (URGENT)

URGENT SITUATION: My iphone took at drink in the Mississippi River. I rely on it for all the work I do on the Secret History project (research, connections, internet connectivity, contacts, and importantly, all the photos you’ve read on this blog) and I need a replacement desperately.

Do you have an AT&T iPhone5 you are no longer using that you can express to us?

If so, call Jeremiah’s phone number 408-596-3833

Pass this on to your friends who upgrade their phone every other week.

EDIT: Do we have friends in La Crosse, WI? Looking for someone to receive an overnight parcel for the project asap.

And if you are curious: I was pushing the shantyboat off the beach in Winona standing calf deep in water. A speedboat went by and the wake pushed the shantyboat toward a dangerous snag. I took another step and hit a drop off and went down to my chest. I pulled myself up on the boat, but my wallet and phone were soaked. We did all the usual things… remove sim card, bag of rice, etc. But no dice.

    Leave the phone in the bag of rice. It may take several days and a good idea to change the rice several times. Best of luck, wish I had a phone to donate.
