Just got off the phone with G and he said they're basically pulled off the side of the road at a truck stop. They have to be in spokane by the 18th. They don't have money to buy a new truck only enough to get the old one fixed. They're pulled off the road at a truck stop on hwy 94 and so far he's been on the phone with 30 different people trying to figure things out. I called my group Northwest Jousting and one of our riders is trying to get "family emergency" time to just drop everything and go but her boss isn't answering any of her calls at the moment. She's packed and ready though.
They might have a ride coming up from Minesotta if Steph can't make it so we're all waiting on that. Horse transport is going to cost them more than they have for the amount of time they'll need it and it's not a definiate anyone can make it at the last minute either. They also called a truck rental place and were told the insurance doesn't cover the transport of live cargo. If something happened they could get sued for the horses safety and aren't willing to rent a truck for that reason. Besides that they've unloaded the horse and are walking them around the truck stop in rotation so they can all stretch their legs.
Thank you everybody, I'll keep everyone posted.
