I'll send some cash on payday, unfortunatly I can't send a lot due to the fact I'm in the process of buying a house. If I wasn't in mass and working 7 days a week I would be in for a work weekend. If there's still work needed in October I would be in for a weekend.

I did read through the whole thread, but i am not entirely sure what materials you guys need. If someone wanted to send me a materials list on whatever is needed "sheetrock, plumbing fixtures, electrical, whatever", I would be happy to cover up to $3,000 of it and haul it out in September. I am available any weekend necessary up until the last weekend of September. Happy to help out in any way i can.

My number is 970 987-1315

It looks like we have most of the cost of a new truck covered. What I would say we need construction material wise is interior finishes, LOTS of flooring, Sheetrock, outlets maybe, stuff like that.

Im headed up there tomorrow morning, I'll talk to Todd and we'll call you to get a preliminary plan and need lost together.

Your generosity is amazing and appreciated.

In an effort to not clutter the truck thread:

We could use some desiccant packs. We are having to put blankets, sheets, winter clothes etc in garbage cans to store them.

I wear a 3 or 4xl shirts
Sherree is good on shoes. I had no idea. That girl had a lot of shoes.

Corey, I agree with Matt. I'm not too concerned with flooring. If we can close the walls up, doors. At least a few doors would be fantastic,

I'll take care of the dessicant packs. I'll Amazon prime them your way. Do you want some vacuum bags or something better than cans to store stuff?

For $15 you can get a giant jug of cat litter crystals, I fill old socks with it and throw in the safe, might be cheaper easier faster

Hey rockmup, thanks for letting us help you. Thanks for being a good friend and asking when you need something. To find out that a friend was suffering and you could have done something to help is a terrible feeling.

Alright you turkeys, which ones of you thought I could ride this out on the sideline?

I made a call to the VP of Texas Fixtures in Hutto, TX. They are now our official sponsor. So, if it makes sense the orders for specific material can come through me. They have a PM that will bid it out and beat up the suppliers. The order will be reviewed, approved and made. Transport will likely be required from Hutto to rockmup. If this is too far out of the way then let me know. The savings on material cost by going this way will be enormous. Let me know what y'all think. Also, someone will have to make arrangement to reimburse Texas Fixtures for only the material.

Do you need shirts? I have a box in that size range that were just given to me. How about pant size? I'd be happy to box them up and send them your way.

It is far and away the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, the saying out loud that I need help to someone else.

I have never in my life asked anyone for anything. Never. Not once. Not gas money not anything. I left home at an early age and never went back. I have always taken great pride in being self sufficiant.

I can honestly say this has almost broken me. It's not going to but it's closer than I ever thought I could be.

I am shocked by how hard it is to let people help you, I will never just say oh it's nothing when someone thanks me for something. It is something to te receiver, something huge.

My wife, she is such an unselfish person and the best partner I could have ever had through this.

Guys and gals,

If you send me something in the mail please send me a pm letting me know that something is on the way. I also need your real name.

That way if something doesn't make it I can let you know
