Guy says he has credit card receipts for the shuttle, should be pretty easy to prove whether he did or didn't entrust his rig to them.

My geo tracker got stolen on the 5th of july. I received a call yesterday that they found it on private property in sunny valley.

Good luck finding your rig. The Josephine County Sheriff's office is little to no help.

Jo county Sheriff is way under served for a long time they had only 2 deputies for the entire county and they closed a portion of the jail down. Prosecutors were let go from the DA's office. They sometimes don't respond to 911 calls it is the wild west in Josephine county I used to live there, but moved because it was unsafe. They will not pass a safety levy.

Ya I lived there too. I personally like fewer cops and wouldn't vote for a safety levy either.

It should be legal to shoot theives. A couple get shot and then you wouldn't need cops anyhow and the other theives would go get a damn job and stop smoking damn meth.

You'd think that would be true but more thieves would just move in and keep up the pace, much like the old public pickpocket hangings in the U.K. where many people watching the execution were pickpocketed themselves.

I don't see why galice would deny they shuttled this guys rig. Shuttle companies are not responsible for what happens pre-and post shuttle. They have waivers stating that they aren't even responsible for your rig during the shuttle.
R.w and o.t are like clockwork. If you check in with them before your trip you can be assured that your rig never spends more than a half an hour at the put in or take out.

All waivers are not equal. Just because you sign a waiver doesn't mean it is legally enforceable, and it doesn't alleviate the company from a certain standard of care or protect the shuttle company from negligence. For example, a waiver wouldn't protect them if they left your car doors open with the key in the ignition (unless you instructed them to do what on the shuttle form).

I've used Galice Resort for well over a hundred shuttles in the past 40 years, and have found them to be dependable, scrupulously honest and extremely helpful--even when one of my rigs broke down at the highest part of Bear Camp Road. If you want to find a bad guy, you need to look someplace else.

I knew the waiver issue would come up as soon as I posted. A shuttle is a privilege not a right. I asked my insurance provider specifically if a shuttle service drove my truck off a cliff with all my gear would it be covered. You need to cover your ass. You should have comp. insurance if you're leaving a rig in the wilderness or having strangers drive it. Court costs,lawyer fees and time off would exceed the the op's rig and the other poster 90's geo tracker value. Getting stuff stolen sucks, but it's like Rigging to flip or being prepared for a swim. It's not as bad if you're prepared.
