The following is from an incredibly wonderful, yet tragic and endearing story about a man named Denny Holmberg who is just trying to get on with his endangered life two-plus years after Katrina.
If your heart's desire is an amazing swamp tour, read the story and go take a tour – you'll have yourself an adventure and help someone who truly deserves and needs it.

"WEST PEARL RIVER, La. – Denny Holmberg is trying to get by with a little help from his friends: alligators, turtles, flying squirrels, bass and gar, wild boar and 29 different kinds of spiders, just to name a few. Oh, and don’t forget a handful of kind-hearted humans.

Two years after Katrina swamped his once-thriving swamp tour business, Holmberg is still in a world of hurt. In a cruel encore to the hurricane’s devastation, Holmberg was hit just after the storm by a recurrent brain tumor that had been in remission for a decade. Surgery and drugs have left him subject to frequent seizures, unable to run his business, down to his last few dollars and wondering how he’ll pay for another operation.

“Eeeaaahhhh!” bellows Holmberg from his moss-draped compound on the banks of the Pearl River. . ."

I thought you might want to know that Denny Holmberg passed away in October.
