If you stay in a motel in eureka, be sure to take all your belongings in your room with you! it would probably be a good idea to haul them with you wherever you end up...especially if it is a Motel 6 on 101. i was there a few days ago, got in late, forgot to grab the laptop out of the xtra cab on my truck. yeah, stupid. parked 10 feet from my room, 30 from the office and when i woke up next AM, guess what? no side window in my truck, glass all over the ground, and laptop missing...Motel said i signed agreement that they are not liable for theft loss etc. cop said too bad you dont have the serial # they might try to pawn it. car insurance said we'll fix the window, foget about the laptop.
so ok, i'm whining...it was an old laptop, had lots of family pix on it, the bag had some personal papers but nothing i cant replace...just sux
