He already said he’s dealing with such in influx from this, he can’t respond to everyone directly.

If your PP went through to his email on file, then you’re GTG.

Yes, his name appears to be Carl.
Thanks, all. I was just concerned that the money went to the right place. Apparently it has.

Also, just a suggestion here. You you may want to periodically withdrawal the funds from PayPal in case they decide to temporarily lock your account. With the influx of sudden transactions and with the subject of the forum (PP is very left leaning), PayPal May decide to give you a headache.

You may be doing that already, but figured I’d still give the advice.

This is horrible. I am not in a position this weekend to read through all the posts. However, I live in the eastern part of Louisville, KY. I am about an hour away. If I can help I would be glad to facilitate anything that I could (delivering stuff, checking in, whatever is needed). I feel pretty bad about having a member in need that is so close and I have not done anything.

Just let me know what I can do to help.

Not something you want anyone to deal with. We lived in a car for a couple years when I was a child. That’s a hard life. In.

PayPal sent. Thank you Carl for coordinating what will surely be a hectic process and for the great care that I'm sure you are giving it. You're a good man!

I went to sleep last night, pondering some things, and awoke to some more questions. Just trying to think of some logistics here.

First of all, we need to figure out what David wants to do. He has expressed his desire to stay in KY, and his desire to work in some sort of CNC field. He has an offer from ES Dunbar for a job, however it is not in KY. Tubetone, in the other thread, mentioned what would seem like a perfect job at Sig Sauer, but that is in NH, perhaps too far away for David. We just need to know what David wants. Either way, staying in KY at the flea market, or making a move, is up to him, and I believe we all would support him whatever his decision may be.

This brings up my second concern, related to the first, a vehicle. If David stays in KY, something more homey like, I think, would be best. A full size van, a class C cabover motorhome, a truck with a bed camper or tow behind camper may all be good viable options. If David decides he wants one of the jobs listed previously, out of state, maybe the money will be better spent on a reliable to and from work vehicle, and a studio apartment. Another option is, if he took one of the jobs, and had a camper or motorhome, to park it at a trailer park. Also, think of registration and insurance to keep you legal, and what that will run you for your selected vehicle.

We also need to know what size shoes, pants, jackets etc. that you wear, so some members can send you some clothes.

What else do you need, David? If something specific, let us know. Hopefully you won't be sleeping in the cramped drivers seat of your Chrysler much longer. Let's get you on the path to having a roof over your head, a solid income, and a reliable vehicle. Hang in there bud, help's on the way.
Hello, I honestly will remain in Kentucky. I may not stay in this northern section as there is more nice areas to live and work. Its high time I venture into something as steady employment but, no longer hold out to work in machining. I dont like logistics work as there is a abundance of it here. Georgetown has Toyota, a company down in Winchester was interested in me, other areas like Frankfort and Lexington or Bowling Green. I will return to work here.

We have a guest appartment ready for you to stay in with a king size bed, shower, TV, internet, fridge, seperate entrance, etc.
We live in the mountains Murphy, NC and can pick you up. Get rest, get your situation figured out.
Free. I personally do not have many posts but I live with Sig member Jim Smith (sig229-SAS)
and we both welcome you!
That is a gracious offer but I will stay in Kentucky.

David, I'm glad to see you ask for help from us. I know that there isn't a member who'd object to giving you help.

If I can do more than share some of the money God sees fit to send my way each week, please let me know.

All the best David, I'm hoping this gets you what you need right now and praying that things turn around for you long term.
Thank you JPD, I will put it to good use in a better vehicle. I dont see you post much here.

Everyone - David responded to my email questions regarding clothing needs. I had offered a Carhardt coat and other things, and here's what he said:

I have a Carhartt coat the market owner gave me last year. I have a heavy Nautica parka I bought last winter.

I have too much clothing and 23 bath towels in this old Buick.

What I could use are a few pairs of long john bottoms as I got all paper thin uniform pants to wear outside. I have to find another sturdy knit winter hat.


He didn't include any sizing information, but perhaps he will see this and share.

I know cash always helps, but are there any hard goods you need? I'd rather pass along clothes, camping gear, etc in addition to helping fund a replacement vehicle?
