Our house has been cleaned out . This is not pleasant.They stole stole my truck and used it to move everything out. I feel real helpless down here. Trying to figure out if I can change my tickets to get back earlier. If anyone works for a Canadian insurance company, can you Pm me. I need to ask a question. There is an aspect to this that i need to know the answer to.

That just down right sucks, Paul. It's bad enough that your house was broken into, but stealing your truck too makes it even worse. I wish there was something I could do to help. I'm neither in the insurance industry or Canadian. I hope they catch the rotten bastards who did it.

It does make me wonder sometimes about posting that we'll be gone this week or that weekend. How many crooks are taking advantage of this knowledge?

The interstate system of highways is fine for getting where you need to be in a hurry, but it's the road less traveled that is more enjoyable. Take in the scenery before life passes you by in a blur.

Wow!!!

What a lousy way to ruin a good vacation. Hope the mounties get their man or woman. Hope you kept a good list of belongings. Pictures & reciets of items can be a big help when dealing with Insurence co. Hope they didn't get your personel files also. May want to start calling credit card co's & your financial instutions. Check your retirement acounts, change all your online pass words.

Hearing this kind of stuff, just boils my blood. I don't know how it is in Canada, but here the jails are so over crowded if caught they are out in no time to do it again. I believe in capital punishment & also that the punishment should fit the crime. Cutting off a thiefs hand comes to mind.

Thats Sad Paul :( Boy I don't know of anyone that has that kind of bad luck first your camera and stuff now This . Don't know what it would be BUT if I can help I'll do IT . :angry: I thought you had your truck & T C with you down there In mexico ? I worry allot about that type of thing when I leave home because I live out in the country and everyone knows I live alone so if one of my vans or my camper is gone I'm easy pray .
I only have one younger guy living close by and is in and out of jail from time to time on drugs but they get there money from stealing ! some time back I bought a 110 v ac serine like they use in a plant for safety[[ VERY LOUD ]] and I hook it up and let it sound off every now and then to make him think it's hooked to my alarm system LOL
Hears hoping it all works out for you .

Dear Paul,
What can I say it was a weak moment. Knew you were in Mexico and couldn't resist the temptation.
Sales have been slow, payrolls to make, thought the insurance money would buy you that new 10'8 you always talked about. Can't believe that neighbor recognized me. By the way your truck could use a tune-up. Slow get away vehicle. also that place of yours is no Trump Towers.

If it weren't for bad luck Paul you would have non at all. Sorry to hear about your troubles. Hope you had a great time in Mexico. Think I'll take a week off and go Moose hunting in Ft. St John. Will leave Heather and Zoe to guard my stuff.

Dear Jerry,
Paul told me the security in his building has smartened up lately. They used to be lax, now they are known as the Ex-Lax security.
