I thoroughly enjoyed your pictures and the Cayucos Races especially as I was at "home" about 3 years ago and my niece, Erika Reyea, was in the race. Her Dad (my nephew)said it was hilarious as Erika's and her friends cayucos started taking on water and they started shoveling the water out: the more they threw out, the more came in. Their little cayucos started sinking and my nephew said he never saw such tired girls in their life. There will never be another CZ where the kids had so many experiences and fun times. Like I said, I have enjoyed this very much. Will be forwarding it to my nephew so he and Erika can watch these cayuco races.

Great Site. I'll be in Panama until January and plan on taking a few pictures before I leave. I'll send some to the site.
Enjoyed your site. Worked at Corozal Tech Control from May 86 to July 89. Looking for anyone I knew there.
At Albrook AFB from July 1951- July 1954, Air Force Brat. Loved every second I was there. Jimmy Carter is a MORON for giving away the Canal. But if he didn't, I'm sure the Ultra-Moron we have in there now would have.
bill, I just took a spin around Jerry Hall's "theater" web site and had a great time.It brought back terrific memories of what superb theater we had at our disposal in the C.Z. I recommend one and all to view this site.Thanks to Jerry for all the hard work and results.
As part of the Survey team that helped the EOD guys clear some of the firing ranges, I can say that I really enjoyed my visit to the Canal. It is a very beautiful place.
I LOVE IT. THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. KEEP THE GOOD WORK UP.
Enjoyed my visit to the Canal Zone Cyber-museum. I lived in Panama for two years (1971-1972)and attended Balboa High School before returning to the states. While scanning through your photo gallery I thought about the medallion in the floor at Balboa H.S. and I too would like to see it preserved. I didn't have to polish it but made sure that I did not step on it in the morning(s) after the flag raising ceremonies. I loved living in Panama as the region provided me with an enriched environment during my teen years to experience the military culture, the varied cultures attending Balboa High School, and the Panamanian culture which I experienced first hand while living at Calle 50, Panama City. I have said many times that living and attending school in Panama was my greatest education as I lived every day in the United Nations. Where else could your best friends be from countries you could only hope to visit someday? In respect to your bottle collection - keep up the exploration for long forgotten history of the Canal. In retrospect, I wish that I would have fully explored the sites I use to dive such as off Toboga Island, where at that time you could find the remains of ships from the gold rush and in Gatun Lake to look for construction sites. One day I hope to return to Panama to explore the country from "Old" Panama on the Pacific side to Cristobol on the Atlantic. In closing. Thank-you for the memories and keep up the excellent work on this web site as I will return often.
It is getting close to the 30th reunion for Cristobal High '70 and I certainly hope there will be a bunch of us there since this will be my First One!! Should be very, very interesting!! So get the rears in gear and lets make it a great one!! See Ya!!!! txpanama
I was stationed at Forts Gulick and Randolph during 1968-69. I played golf at Fort Davis many times. I sure miss those great days in the Canal Zone. Thanks for your web site to bring back some fond memories!
1958-1960 U. S. NAVY. Cristobal Harbor Defense Unit, Coco Solo Naval Station and the USS NAHOKE YTB 536. Love and miss Panama. Feel free to contact me.
Very Good Site, enjoyed the photo and post cards very much. Spent some time on the Atlantic side in the 70's
