In need of help

Ok Folks, Daytona just gave a evacuation order. Going to close the bridges on Thurs. or Fri.

As most people know...SicFlgrilR6 lives there and I am going to take my trailer up there and help load up some things for her family tomorrow night.

For those that don't know, she lives just south of Daytona on an Island.

Anybody that has some free time to come help will be appreciated.

Let's hope this one goes on North a little more.

Thanks so much you guys!!! My family really appreciates it. My dad is beyond freaking out, his dad passed away when I was 14 and our house has a lot of his stuff that my dad does not want to let got of. However we have a lot of stuff we need to bring with us. 19' boat on a trailer(if we don't get the boat out of the garage when the storm surge comes in the boat will go through the 2nd floor), we have 4 cats and my doggie we need to fit in my dads van and they all have kennels. I have an SV650 and my R6 that need to get out of the garage and over to Polk County. If we get any kind of storm surge our house will be destroyed, there are no dunes left here, hurricane Floyd whiped them out when it came through so we no longer have a barrier between us and the ocean. They have ordered a mandatory evacuation for the Island I live on, we need everything out by Thursday AM and they will be closing down the bridges so no one can get in or out. This is very serious even if the eye does not pass directly over us we will still have an awful storm surge. Any help is very appreciated, my family has been good to a lot of you guys who have stayed here, I'm glad I have friends like Kenny who remember good people and treat them as family which is how my family has treated most of you :).

Its okay Bill and Earl :). What I really really need is a Saws-All I dunno if you have one Kenny, but we need one bad. We need to go up on the roof and cut the roof deck from the support beams that run into the house. If the roof deck goes with the beams attached the damage will be extensive, however if we cut the roof deck from the support beams and get it off it will reduce the chances of it taking the roof with it if it blows off and causing water damage.
Soooo we're going to bump the move out from to tonight to tomorrow night we've had our evac extended a little that way we can see where Frances might hit a little more. If anyone could make it out here with Kenny to get some of our stuff out of the beach house that'd be great :). We should have most everything ready to go and boarded up by tomorrow night, my mom got a new car for her b-day she used to have a Dodge Dakota, which we could have hauled the bikes in, but now she has a Toyota Scion Xb and that little bread box can't hold crap... I still don;t know what to do with the bikes, Jerry still has not fixed his truck so...
**Our island has been evacuated, we have until 2pm tomorrow to get out. Any of you who would like to help PLEASE contact Kenny he will be heading on his way out here tonight, we were going to wait until tomorrow to see what the storm is doing, but now we have no choice. If we go too late into the night you guys are more than welcome to stay here and we'll be leaving in the morning.**

Ride one of the bikes over. Or do you have a car you have to drive too? I'd be more than willing to ride one back. :D I am going with kenny tonight though. See ya in a few
Thanks you guys!!! Yeah Kenny is going to shove the two bikes in my garage in his trailer. We are leaving my car here to try and atleast block one of the garage doors. Again you guys don't know how much this means to me and my family. You guys really do represent how fellow riders should treat eachother, like family.
:lol too funny, can't wait to see you guys:D, thanks again!!!
I wish my doggie was nice, shes kinda only nice to me, Jer and my parents... Thanks so much for the offer chickie if she was a little nicer to strangers I'd let her entertain you for the weekend, Pussy Posse watching out for eachother :D. Naughty, I still don't have another Barbie yet :(, but I'll let you ride my bike around the block before we load it up :).
Well what can I say, its 1:58am and Kenny, Nick, and Dalton have just left our house to head back to the west coast. One word to sum these guys up would be AMAZING. We asked Kenny if he could stop by the Home Depot in Polk County to get 2 sheets of 1/2" plywood for us because we thought they would have some more wood over there and it wouldn't be crowded. Boy were we wrong, but you know what they did, Kenny, Nick, and Dalton stood in line for over an hour to get us 2 sheets of plywood!!! Now that is what I call "family". I don't know if I could ever repay such a huge favor, they worked hard to help my dad finish boarding up all of the sliding glass doors and glass doors, helped load the bikes up, helped my dad box and take down all of his fathers paintings and memoirbilia. These guys must have walked the 2 sets of stairs easily over 30 times hauling wood and tools up and downstairs. Words cannot express how much it meant to my family, hopefully when we come to PC tomorrow we will all be able to meet up and go out to dinner.
Thanks again guys from the bottom of our hearts,
Courtney, Brad, Sheri, and Kyle

Cort...whatever I can do to help I will!! I can do the kitties, since I have 2 of my own if you need a place for them...if you need room to put more stuff--I also have half of a garage you can put bikes or boxes or whatever that you may need!!

Call me if you and your family need anything!!!!!! I won't post my cell on here but you should have it and if you don't PM me and I 'll get it to you.

My prayers are with you and your family and your home :(
Thank you guys so much for the offers, its really good to know you all are here to help a rider in need. So far we have the bikes and boxes in Kenny's enclosed trailer so I hope that takes care of everything. We will be rolling out of here tomorrow and heading for you guys. Hope everyone is ready this thing is so unpredictible its scarey...
Take care all,
:lol Kenny I love how you always find something to make me giggle. Biketoberfest is going to be a bitch if Daytona Beach is gone :D... Humor sorta makes me feel better during tough times, well since it looks like the "path of destruction" for the time being has turned towards Orange County, Polk County and so on we will be going to Georgia to stay. We found this place called Hometowne Suites the places there are really nice and really $$$, but its the only place that will take pets... And any of you who know me know I won't leave my puppy and my kitties behind, they are my babies :). I hope you all fare well in the storm, it should be a cat 1 by the time it reaches Polk County since it is moving so slow... I know any kind of storm is the last thing you guys need, but I hope you all come out of this ok, you're all in my family's thoughts and prayers.
Love you all,
Gees Kenny how many No Doz did you take:lol??? Well I know the trailer and you will both be fine :)!
You guys rock!!! Please take care of yourselves during the sotrm so we can all party harty in the future together :lol. Winds are supposed to be 95mph when it rolls through Polk County so I better not hear of anyone getting hurt doing something stupid at the party! And yes Lenny that goes for you too :D!!!
Take care you guys :),
You better seek some shelter mister!!!
Ok all me, my family, our 4 cats and 1 dog have just arrived in SOUTH CAROLINA! We were supposed to just go to Kingsland GA, but this morning they called us and told us the reservations fell through. We are about 40 miles north of Savannah, which is great for us since we love Savannah GA it will give us time to go down there and get our minds off this storm. Thank God the hotel is amazing, we are staying in 2 suites at the Holiday Inn Express, they are sooooo nice and they take pets :). Helps to have some where nice to stay when you are under so much stress. If anyone is still trying to get out of town there is pleanty of room here at this hotel. There are a lot of people here from FL, everyone is so personable, its great. It was havoc in FL everyone fighting and cussing at one-another out, but these people uphere are so friendly, I think they are just happy to finally be out of harms way. We had almost no traffic coming out here it was about a 4 1/2 hour drive with two "wee-wee" stops for the doggie, having no traffic was AWESOME. I hope you all do fine during this storm, its going to be a long one, we will be here until Tuesday and then if we hear everything is clear we will be coming back down.
Keep safe and take care you guys,
