  • A major kick to WBC's cojones

    We'll my fellow pilots and Squawk friends, a major catastrophe occurred today that is gonna set me back on my heels with my RC flying.
    I haven't been as active on the forum as I normally am do to preps in getting the homestead ready for my daughters wedding.
    The catastrophe has now upped the ante and my time spent on RC flying or time on this forum is gonna get shut down probably for the rest of the year.
    What occurred was a garage fire where half my fleet and all batteries and RC support equipment and my truck and the RV and Harleys and tools etc, etc, etc were a total loss.
    The fire investigators determined that a 12V car battery charger that was charging my marine deep cycle battery malfunctioned and lit the joint up.
    Between the truck and motorcycles and three 5 gal gas cans ALL of them full and all the lipos(25+) stored near by, there was no saving the structure.
    They had all they could do to save the house.
    RIP Tigercat and Lightning, Bronco, Skymaster, Razorback, Aunt Ju and Annushka, Phoenix Spitty and Dauntless, LX P-40E and LX PBJ-1 and PBY :Crying:
    TJ.........sorry my friend but I got to pull the plug on my participation in the Giants Festival in 2 weeks cause the four I had ready are in the list above.:(
    So when you think you've had a bad day............think again. I've beaten cancer 5X and this set back I can beat too;)
    Writing this little forum exodus note is a form of healing therapy. I'll stay in touch but not on a daily basis. See y'all in a short time my friends.:Cool:

          Cripes, I'm so sorry to see that, brother. I'm glad no one was hurt. When the time comes, ping me and we'll get you back with a little somethin' to restart. Stay close to the Squawk and please don't go far! Without you I have no one to bang the Bronco drum.

                    Charlie! Dang man! That is not good....so sorry to hear that. The RV and the truck and your motorcycles too! Wow! I am glad that you and your sweetie are ok. It is just stuff in the end but it will be hard to replace some if any of your creations.

                        I dont know what to say. Words just dont describe how much grief I feel for you. All those beautiful planes and equipment gone in a flash. Something like this happened to me when my Grandparents house burned down just after we moved to Colorado, everyone was safe but my vintage B-17 and sailboat got torched along with my grandpas willys jeep and my great grandpas things from the war.
                        I'mjust glad you and your family are okay.
