Cramer's van stolen, now recovered!

Help find Cramers van! Stolen on nf Saturday afternoon. He saw van heading downstream on his hitch back up, figured a river buddy was trying to help. Ugly ass brown 1978 camper van (Chevy?) with a white pop top pulling a trailer with a green deck. Seen fueling at beacon light chevron around 2 supposedly and seen at Autozone on overland later that day by a nf kayaker that recognized it. All before it was known to be stolen. WTF this shit doesn't happen here! Will post a pic of van tomorrow.

If anyone does spot the van, call 911. We are expecting it to be abandoned along the road or in a parking lot soon.

The only person who could be forgiven for borrowing that van would be a tired forest fire fighter who was just looking for a nice place to sleep. Anyone else should get a foot long in jail

Not to steal the thunder of this particular incident, but there have been a lot of thefts and break-ins on the Payettes this year, and even down in Boise some people have had their boats and/or gear stolen.

It stinks.

It is a ford econoline. I suppose it could even be painted by now or otherwise "customized". The trailer is probably dropped and not with it. I heard stories Sunday that people have been hiding out (last year?) staking out watching for people to leave their rigs along the NF.
