3 young men, 2 trucks and a cross-country odyssey to aid hurricane victims

A 26-foot Penske rental truck and a Ford 150 pickup truck with California plates pulled up outside the Bonita Springs fire station about 7 o?clock Wednesday night.

Three young men hopped out, pulled out an inflatable raft and began blowing it up.

?We think we have some things that you need,? he told Jim Kauffman, who was manning the station. After more than a week of around-the-clock hurricane duty, most of city officials had finally gone home to rest.

?The kid looked about 12 years old,? said Kauffman, director of technology and planning for the fire department. ?I told them ?welcome to Bonita Springs, what brings you here??   ?
