I like the site! do you have any cayuco picks from 1990 to 1994. I paddled in the misconception 90 to 92 and utmost 94.
Great Site and lots of memories.
I thoroughly enjoyed your website after it was provided to me by Carl Berg. Carl is also a historian of the CZ, and is the leading authority on the old town of Cocoli (near Miraflores locks) where we all lived in the 50's. I spent the first 17 years of my life in the CZ in Cocoli and Farfan. I have traveled all over the isthmus in those days and even returned for a tour of duty from 73-76. I had many fond memories after navigating your site which is very professional and informative. Thank you. Bill Eddleman
Thank you so much for compiling this site!!! the pictures have helped me out SOOO much with a school project. I especially need to thank Danny Norman for his beautiful pictures, which have been monumental in a history day project I completed for US History, Thanks!

I am a proud Zonian who attended Balboa High School. I should have graduated from Balboa in '64. Unfortunately, I graduated from a stateside school. Those of you who were there at that time remember the difficulties concerning the flagpole at BHS. Thanks for the beautiful memories. You did a fine job on your site.
Very interesting, was there Oct '45- Jun 46, Office at Corozal in Radar Maint, lived BOQ 95 on Albrook. Will see if I can find some of my photos from there.
STATIONED AT HOWARD AFB FROM DEC. 76 THRU APRIL 79. NOT A ZONIAN BUT THE TIMES WERE THE BEST I EVER HAD. WILL NEVER FORGET THEM. STILL IN TOUCH WITH SOME FRIENDS. JUST BOUGHT A BOOK IN AN ANTIQUE STORE TITLED "THE PANAMA CANAL" DATED IN 1903. CANT WAIT TO READ IT. THANKS. DONNIE
I was searching for some information on the Panama Canal and found your magnificent website. My great-grandfather Wilhelm L. Strecker died of yellow fever in Colon during the construction of the Panama Canal, probably between 1905 and 1910. I am trying to find more specific information about his whereabouts in Panama. He was a German Engineer and Master Mechanic who worked during construction of the Central and Northern Railroads in Guatemala in the 1880s and 1890s, and went from there to the Panama Canal. His widow died in Guatemala in 1921, but no one in my family really knows much him. I have two photographs circa 1870 and some family history going back to Germany and Mexico, where he lived before going to Guatemala. Any thoughts on how to do some research in Panama?
