Bambi found!!!

Got a call from the person that bought my stolen trailer.....
the theif gave him a bill of sale even...I had posted signs that a sign company made all over this little town and a friend of the buyer called him.
He called me tonight and said " I think I have your trailer"
I have been numb walking around and now feel beyond happy.

going to pick the old girl up tommorrow and by a lock for the hitch...
she had an adventure without me.....

Thank you for the thoughts help and kind words...this is a great community....

Now I can plan to go to an event or rally this summer and meet some face behind the silver....

God bless all of you...

Congratulations Patrice. Have been wondering how you were progressing on recovering your baby. Let's hope he didn't make too many renovations that can be made right again.

CONGRATULATIONS, I know for you it is a huge relief and for all of us it shows through hard work, such as what you and the others in our Airstream family had done, things can be done. Enjoy your trailer as I know you certainly will more than ever now.

wow, that's really great that you were able to recover it.
puts a little hope in my heart that maybe the world isnt such a bad place after all.

somehow i think id enjoy my baby a bit more knowing all might have been lost
