Wow Fred....you are one of the good guys in R/C and I'm also wishing you and your family a speedy rebuild of all that was lost....

You didn't borrow any of Ryan's battery packs and leave it in the garage did you????

Wow.....I was reading through and noticed the word Fire. I thought it was a joke; but it`s for real.

I`m sorry you have to go through something like this; but I hope things get Better for you soon.

Take Care.

Hey, Fred. I'm glad we could all chip in to help lessen the blow of this tragedy. When Jeff approached us about donating, I didn't even have to think but for a second. If any of the regulars that were not here on Sunday want to donate, we will continue to collect for you. Nothing will get back the items you lost, but the most important thing is that no one was seriously hurt. Good luck, and see you back soon.

Thanks to every one for your comment and donations. I am proud to say that I race with every one of you. It's been a very busy day and I am heading to bed. It's amazing that every time I turn around I think of something else that was in that garage.

I spoke to my father today and he is doing well. His burns have pussed out a little but the doctors say that it is part of the healing process. He is in good spirits and wanted to thank all of you for your caringness.

Thanks again!

I hate to hear that Fred, last July my house burned down and I lost about 90% of my stuff and to this day Iím still remembering stuff I lost. The good thing is everyone was safe, the bad thing is that smell will be around for a long, long time.
