Now I know the rest of the story. Others are staying through Monday, so we'll hear from them later in the week.

It was so frustrating and we all were VERY concerned as the message that reached us had the barest minimum of information. The note that reached us stated that the accident happened near Julian and we were all sure you went over a cliff!

Eric and I are so glad you are ok. The message was relayed through the CHP, to SD Parks to to the campground to Rosemary and I... and said that the accident had happened close to Julian, the trailer was totaled but that you were uninjured. We tried to find out more information through one of the rangers but couldn't find out anything. Not having cell service was very frustrating!


I truly hope that you aren't soured on the idea, will get another trailer and we can all meet.

Thanks to everyone for all your thoughtful responses to my post. It was a traumatic experience, but as I stated we came through just fine. I am in the process of working through the insurance claims and we are still trying to locate the trailer..to date..no yet located.

I believe the truck will be totalled as it was spanking brand new..allowing me to replace it rather than have it fixed and have that report on my car fax info. I had full insurance on both vehicles so I think I'll be in good shape to replace them.

I'm glad the CHP got some message through to all staying at Aqua Cliente..even if wrong, at least you all knew something had happened. The accident was about 4-5 miles from the turn off onto S2. Saw it coming and had nothing I could do to avoid it. We are all fine and back to living and life...just working through the claims now.

Thank you all for kindness..hope to meet again someday in the near future.
Karen

Now a Casita Owner

After having been involved in that accident on the way to the FTMeet-up, I was able to replace my truck with another new Toyota Tacoma and as of Saturday, was able to replace the lost Fiber Stream with a Casita Liberty Deluxe.

Just got back tonight from buying it in Arizona and hauling it back to Los Angeles. What a trip! The Casita is a 1999 Liberty Deluxe in excellent condition, purchased from the original owners who kept it immaculately. I was just plain lucky to get it period.

Perhaps sometime this summer we'll have a chance to meet you all after all.

As for the belongings in the FS..they were stolen! A report has been filed with the CHP and they are investigating. Meanwhile I have filed yet another claim with my insurance on my stolen property. Everything was taken..the trailer was stripped clean. They did leave a carton of eggs but took everything else including my clothing and Hannah's.

Thanks Carol for asking and following up.
Karen

Glad to hear you got a new truck and trailer already - how exciting!!!
*Sorry* though to hear about your personal belongings.... what a pain that is. Hope there wasn't anything you where very attached to and not replaceable in it.

Your experience actually got me thinking about no longer carrying a few items in the trailer but putting them into the car while traveling instead.

Would love to hear how the tow truck company and CHIP explain how that happened?? Seemed kind of crazy that they didnt kown where the trailer was.

Stolen Items Reply to Carol

Carol
The trailer went missing from the point it was picked up by the tow company called by the CHP and not entered into the tow company inventory till Wednesday when the accident happened on Saturday. From Saturday at pickup till entered into inventory on Wednesday, there was plenty of time for "someone" to take everything from the trailer...which they did indeed. The CHP is looking at the tow company..seems a likely candidate to me!

Unfortunately, it is common for towed vehicles to be plundered. Worse are wallets and jewelry gone missing from injured people, between accident and hospital discharge.
