Mystery... solved!

The last time Reece and I visted our storage unit, I was mortified to find water splattered on our dresser. A leak?! Before we've even left!! And you know our insurance covers everything BUT water damage. I immediately panicked. How in the world are we going to move all of our shit into another unit when we are preparing to leave the country in a few days? I huffed and puffed all the way to the management office. A maintenance guy climbed on the roof to inspect. The manager came out to mediate. Turns out it's not a leak, just some condensation. Apparently it's warmer in our cozy unit then it is outside. Eventually I was placated by some free tarps. We covered up as much as we could and vowed not to worry about it in the mountains of Peru.

Tonight we went back to the unit to drop off our final few belongings. As we pulled up, I noticed several official looking notices taped outside of our unit. Shit!! What are they telling us?? Everything flooded and all of our stuff is destroyed?!

No need to fear. The notes were intended for our neighboring unit, from whom we are separated by a piece of plywood.



"The San Bernardino County Fire Department has received notification that methamphetamine laboratory activity has taken place at the posted property... Hazardous substances, toxic chemicals, or other hazardous waste products may have been present and may remain on or inside the property."

Our stuff is stored in a METH LAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow. At least we don't have to worry about anyone cookin up that condensation anymore.
