I have asked Darin for permission to run a fundraiser, when he gets back with me there will be more info in here on that.

Stumpys Customs Shop burned couple days ago no one was hurt, but he lost a bunch.

In the OKARMOKSTX GTG thread (the last 10 pages or so of the thread are worth reading) there is some info, I will cross post some of that info over here in a little bit.

Bad news guys

My shop burnt down today. My phone was in it at the time. If I had anything of yers here I appologize & will make it up to you sumhow. Please Pm me with phone #'s so I can git back to you in person.

Nobody was hurt, there is a few tools that will be salvageable. But the shop is gone. Please be patient with me while I git stuff sorted out.
Thanks everybody fer the support. I really have no idea what is gonna be salvageable. I really ask anything from you guys other than support.
I'll git back goin eventually. This won't keep me down.
Just a heads up, don't ever ask can things git any worse, cause they can.


Big hugs for everybody from me:msp_thumbup:
PM sent to Darin last night hope he logs on today, I have to have permission before we get the ball rolling. Stay tuned to this thread.
Here's whats left. I got a pic last night before it got to dark.
This just sux:frown::cry:
Sorry man that looks rough. Maybe we need to have a spring shop building GTG. Not trying to crush James' GTG just tossing ideas out there.
I am not a builder (but I know a couple in this thread) but I can hold stuff up carry stuff and really good at getting yelled at. Lets get together and build one.

Thoughts?
Thanks fellas. I need prayers right now. Just went out there to look around & bout made me sick.

I'm off to look fer some part time work to git me by for a while.
OK, caught up on the thread.

My pride is really takin a beating on this. I've always been the type to clean up my own mess. & this is my mess. With that being said, the offers here are more than overwhelming.

I still haven't really been able to stomach staying out there to see whats what for very long to even know what might be salvageable.

Please understand when I say that I need a lil time before everybody shows up to build me back up.
It may sound silly to some, but I'm kinda in a greiveing process. This shop wasn't just a place of business. It was me. All that I have been working for since I was little & starting my tool collection. Not trying to play the sypathy card in any way & some of those who know me a lil more personal on here know that I don't operate that way.

This post is I guess a vent. Arborist site is part of my life too. You are all family to me. Several on here have been pushing me for a while now & keeping me goin, and giving me help to git to where I'm at now.

This misfortune will not git me down. I may have to stay on my knees fer a bit to catch my breath after this big blow to the nutsack.

I'm not able to individually thank everybody. So here's a big thanks to you for the support that I have already received.

I have some other issues I need to resolve before I feel right about accepting any charity. This past few months have been rough.

GOD Bless you all.
Stumpy is a great guy. I talked with him on the phone to tell him what I was doing he didn't want to except but said I won't slap you in the face by not excepting. I was at his place couple summers ago, he has a great family. One of his boys (we call him cookie monster) lost his saw as well more info later but thinking we need to come up with a 50cc saw for the youngster.

I told him when one of our own is down, let us help. I don't think its charity.

Charity comes from people you don't know you know us.

Just about all the guys in the GTG thread are offering the labor to rebuild a shop. I will post as we figure it out. I will post my PayPay and mailing address later.

Some members have donated things to raffle in this thread more after Darin says its ok.

Edit: for now I don't want this thread sticky, they don't get read like a thread that moves, the OKARMOKS guys know how to keep a thread on top. :msp_biggrin:

That is cool man because that boy is just like his dad and loves Husky saws. I had gave him a stihl a while back he liked it but likes Husky better.

Edit: if I remember right he traded the Stihl for a Husky and that is the one that burned.
