Alright, StP'ers, here's my situation:

My chances of attending the Jamboree just significantly dropped.

I'm currently in Willow Creek, CA. To make a long story short, it rained today and my tires lost traction while going around a curve in the road, causing me to hit an embankment.

My dog Krush & I are totally unharmed, but the front suspension on my van is completely FUCKED. I can't drive it anywhere until it's fixed.

I'm gonna try my best to get it repaired in time to get to the Jamboree, but right now I'm super discouraged.

UPDATE:

I'm slightly encouraged today.

I was able to look at the undersides of my van, and see which part broke.

I don't know the name of it off the top of my head, but I can look it up.

So I just need one of those, and a new tire, and I'll be back on the road! ::eyepatch::

Good luck sir. I also just found I need some custom machined work done on my motored bike so also may not be going despite planning for a few months and dumping $1000 into it.

Hope you make it. I might be doing some bitchhiking if I have to resort to it.
