Wow! Damn! Happy New Year, I hope!
2020 strikes again. Sure am sorry to have your trip end that way. Thanks for all your effort with the RR. I've got friends who live down that way and know what they, and you, have been through. Good luck to you and your future travels.
glad your renters weren't hurt......good luck to you getting things back to normal....and minimal denero!!
Oh shit sorry to hear about all of that.
Yes it surely could have been worse and yes it was a massive tricky tree to remove. I would have been a lot slower.
It looks like you dodged a bullet that the tree didn't do more/structural damage, and all those repairs in 6 days in a hurricane disaster area, that’s amazing. And you’re right, life goes on...
Thanks for the ride report rtwpaul! Looking forward to the next one.
Five feet to the left and the house would have been totaled, in hindsight, it wouldn't have been too bad as it was over-insured for total loss
True that but a long process of insurance claims, building and lost rental income.
With yours you can claim that tree removal and other work and move on.
So for that cash only deal did you actually get a receipt or was that a full under the table deal?
I looked at pics of that damage and many houses are just gone and a few deaths :-(
Sorry to hear about this Paul. Rentals are a big chunk of my future retirement income, and when it's good... it's really good. When things go bad it can be quite draining. Looks like you worked out a best-case recovery plan and executed it well.
Looking forward to the next RR from you!
Well shit man, talk about not seeing that 180 coming down the trail. The trip from looking at the tallest sugar pine to fish and chips in Port Orford to finding out you have to make a bee-line from the Oregon coast to home to Louisiana...fack. That's like the quintessential 2020 story in a nutshell - pear-shaped in an instant.
Can't believe you slogged that many miles on your 500 only to follow it up with a huge semi-cross country slog to get to LA. Glad you made it and glad you were able to get the repairs sorted in relatively short order. I hope you kept part of that oak round for something? Could likely make one hell of a table out of that thing, or hell maybe a slab for a small bar.
Look forward to whatever happens as '21 unfolds itself in your world. If you find yourself up around the PDX area of Oregon and need anything (place to crash, shop to work on the bike, etc), don't hesitate to reach out - happy to help if I can.
Knobby side down @rtwpaul.
And a fine "Get Fecked, 2020!" that was, sheesh!! Good to read that you got it sorted.
You know, I've followed your travels (and the many travels of others over the years) and it never ceases to amaze me the amount of adventure that can be had in a lifetime, especially when it's unwanted.
Looking forward to more!
Even a sh!% year is better with motorcycles. Thanks for taking us along, Paul!
Or to find the places to avoid , depending how you look at it !
Still glad it wasn’t worse for you
2020 was a year of spoiled plans for a lot of people, hopefully 2021 is better to you Paul..
Who got to keep the "waste"? Beautiful tree, floors, chairs, tables, etc…
2021 not looking much better at the moment either!
My buddy and his wife whose grandfather built the house
luckily it hasn't reached LonelyPlanet or RoughGuide status yet
I just read an interesting article in Overland Journal asking if you’re an Overlander or an iOverlander. They specifically talk about that app and the overuse/misuse etc. I think it’s getting to the point where I would use it as a guide of where not to go. I still like a paper map.
