Here's the list of things that got snagged that weren't covered by our insurance:
Two go pros
Panasonic G85 with a 12-35mm lens
Eric's cell phone
Chargers for all of those, plus bags and other gear like camera stands
The sliding glass window on the Sprinter
The estimated total to replace all of this is around $8,000.Why was all of that gear in the van? Because we're in the middle of a tour, currently on the road outside of Seattle.
Why don't we have insurance? We do have insurance actually - on most of our equipment. We only have basic auto coverage. A few of our things are not covered, such as laptops (vital to our performance and light show), Eric's cell phone, a ton of camera gear, and, of course, the giant window the thieves smashed when they broke into the van.
As you know, we're an indie operation working on our latest record, and this is a huge performance and financial setback for us. We will have to put a new laptop on our credit card immediately just to finish this tour.
Eric has a lot of the show backed up, though he's not sure how much or how recent. The cost to editing on our current album is incalculable and we still need to do the labor to discover what that loss of data is.Thank you so much for your help and positive thoughts! We love you all. Xoxoxo
