In the end, I lost everything, about 98% of what I owned, except for a few belongings I had stored at a storage place father away in Medford. In dollar value for replacement I lost around $17,500.
I lost my 2002 29' 5th wheel travel trailer along with all my clothing, food, kitchenware, memento's from my long passed mother, all my tools, a 1993 Ford Explorer and a small 6 ' box trailer I had rebuilt last year. I also lost a side business of scrapping and recycling I had started last year and all the reclaimed salable material I had saved up to sell to the salvage yard.
At this time I have a permanent place to live and have accumulated just enough clothing to get by and am safe. My more immediate needs from the funding are to replace my tools and my side business box trailer and to restart my scrapping and recycling business. I enjoyed it and it made me a little extra money periodically plus it kept valuable materials from going to landfill. I hope you can help and many thanks. Sincerely, James
