I spent two years in Kapingi from 74 to 76 working in the health clinic. I married Marciana Madaki who died in the US in the 1986. We had a daughter , Juanita , who is married with three children and lives in Eugene Oregon.
I am now Vice President of Global Sourcing and Production for Chiquita , the fruit company and live in COsta Rica.

Oh wow!

So you are the guy who married my cousin.

I've been in touch with Juanita for some months and then later on her email was not accepting any mails. I don't know what happened. We had a great time learning about each other and sharing informations about our family here on the island.
She asked a lot of questions about her brother Mcarthy and I told her all that happened to him.

Nice knowing you Mr. Keiser. I'm sure you don't know me cuz I was borned 4 yrs later after 76.

Juani, if u see this HOLLER AT YOUR GIRL..missed u!

Keiser, I wish you all the LUCKS in the world.

My wife, Sarah, and I were Peace Corps volunteers on Kapingamarangi from September, 19969 - July, 1969. The people of Kapingamarangi were wonderful to us. We would like very much to reconnect with them. We have photos and a video we took which we would like to send back to the island.

Is all well on Kapingamarangi?

Wow, I just stumbled upon this forum. I was in Kapingamarangi in 1979 (I was 8 years old) - my family was on a sailing trimaran, and we were cruising around. We spent some time with the US Weather Station guys who were in the process of packing up their weather station. I remember they rigged up a big movie screen for all the villagers and we watched Robin Hood (must have been the Errol Flynn one).

After some time we came to know the family of David Madaky (I think his name was David, Madaky FOR SURE) and they were very kind to us and welcomed us. We had engine trouble and my dad had to go back to Ponapei on the monthly freighter to get spare parts. While he was gone, Hurricane Nancy came through and we almost lost our yacht on the reef. David Madaky took us children (my little brother and I) ashore to stay with them while he and his friends helped my Mum to keep the boat off the reef.

During the storm, David's wife gave birth to a little girl. They told us they were going to name her Alana, which is my name. I often wonder what became of my little name-sake (If they did name her that!). If anyone has news of this family, please email me at alana_phillips (at) yahoo.com. I noticed the family name Madaky here which prompted me to write something!!

After that we sailed on to PNG but I still think of Kapinga with great fondness.
