Heard of overstating the bleeding obvious? Of being
an insufferably patronizing twit? I should check my insurance - wow,
now there's something I would never have considered! And oh my God, I'd
never have thought to make sure our AAA coverage was up to date!
The trip relates to a photo trip for a book I'm writing. As well as
being my home the van will also contain about $10,000 worth of camera
equipment, computers, etc, much of which will have to stay in the van
while I'm out each day doing my field work - hence the secured steel
box inside. Losing the vehicle is not the central issue, losing the
gear inside is. Disabling the vehicle makes it that much more difficult
to steal the equipment in the strong box, as they would have to drive
off to a private place to make the necessary racket to smash into it -
that or pull out oxy gear.
Insurance won't replace the camera equipment overnight (it would take
at least a month to replace all the components) nor can it hold the
seasons back, and all the autumn colors I'm after, while I'm waiting
for insurance payouts and new gear.
Any other pearls of wisdom Lance? Brushing my teeth before going to bed
will help keep down tooth decay? Driving on the right side of the road,
instead of the left, will prevent head-on collissions? Remember to pull
the rip-cord next time I go skydiving so that I don't hit the ground
hard? You're obviously a font of everything inane.
PS - do some homework on 'the club'.
