Well you folks have been super welcoming so I thought I would pass this along. As you guys know I am somewhat "new" to the area (4 weeks in). As such, I have been temporarily renting a cabin at the Diamond T Ranch out in Clark Fork, Idaho. Super nice folks and very accomodating due to the sudden move, etc...
At any rate, last week (Wed) I went paddling on the big lake with a friend before going to work. When I got to work folks came up to me - "suprised to see me", asking me "if I had heard what had happened", etc...Then they told me that there had been a fire at the Diamond T and my cabin may have gone up. Well, needless to say, it was the cabin I was renting. Worst part is the vast majority of my toys were inside the cabin or right outside.
I lost my 1 season old Momarsh layout boat, trailer, 4 dozen+ dekes, motion dekes, dog kennel + training stuff, brand new canoe (wedding gift), all my clothing and other obvious important stuff....Good thing is the dog was with me, my shotguns were in storage with all of my wife's stuff and furniture and the wife is in Asheville, NC. The verdict is out on whether insurance is going to payout the money or not. I will be sure to let you guys know. Send me some ju ju if you get the chance. Needless to say, I am even going to hunt harder than ever now!
