I think it was a friend of Coco's who wrecked his truck?

questions


Yes, Coco had loaned his truck to a friend.

Donations made at Coco's (up to three weeks ago) have been sent to Lisa who is spearheading this effort.

Lisa's husband is working on the hand controls issue.

The plan, as it stands now, is that the replacement truck will be purchased in Ensenada near the end of May with whatever donations have been received by then. Coco will be involved with selecting his truck.

The total shown on the GoFundMe account is not the total donated, although the other monies so far, are a little over $1,000 I believe.

How about this truck? Maybe Coco needs Baja plates?

Lemme see........ they've accumulated about a K note so far on fundme.com, so somebody will have to pony up another TEN Grand to make the deal. No problem, Nomads to the rescue!

You first. Just kidding, it's a great ideer, and deliverable! Should account for sumpin', que no? Si, porque no! :coolup:

I think you read this wrong. There's about $5k on Gofundme, and another $1k collected. So, about $6k.

Correct BigBear


About 6k in total that I'm aware of. Another 1k is the goal but they will act to make the purchase with what donations amount to in a few weeks.

This was going on for some time before it was brought to the Baja Nomad site. Most of the donated money in the GoFundMe came prior to being posted here.

Thanks to those who have helped, and to those who offer support in other ways.

Didn't see the other $5k, glad to see it's progressing. A well deserved bump in the process. Buena Suerte.
