While this may not apply to the majority of you, some of the Sailnet members may be in my area or have relatives in my area.
Yesterday, I was planning a shoot at a wild game ranch located near me. I live in a little Rocky Mountain town (pop. 308), great neighbors, everyone leaves there homes unlocked, in case the neighbor needs a cup of sugar or whatnot. It’s the kind of town if you want to get, you have to know how and want to get here. I loaded my gear in the back seat of my truck, went back in my house, finished getting ready to go, about 45 minutes, locked up the house, got in the truck, looked behind me to back out of the driveway and all of my gear was gone! My truck was parked 15’ from my front deck! The local police say there is little chance of recovery, as we have many transient oil field workers through here and western Colorado has a major Meth problem. My insurance company told me that because the equipment is considered business/professional equipment and was not being used at a business/professional location, it would be valued under my deductible of $500, WHAT!
So someone, in a few seconds time wiped out my ability to earn a living.
What really sucks, is that next Wednesday, I was leaving for 3 weeks in Mexico, partly vacation, but also to shoot for submission to various websites, can you say, no pay day?
What I’d like to ask is, if any of you who may be in an area close to me, happen to notice anyone with high-end new Canon or nearly new Canon photo gear please contact me, this stuff is not what a normal hobbyist photographer uses.
