    Our property and business were in the Bastrop, Texas burn zone. After evacuation, it took five days before property owners were allowed back into the disaster area.

    At the moment, we are in the process of getting both power and phone service back up. Though our home was one of the 1400+ homes that were lost, all aspects of our business, buildings and contents, are ok. All manufacturing equipment, magazine inventory, business records, and engineering data are intact, and operational. ALL customer items in our possession are in our safe and OK. We estimate that Tripp Research will be fully operational within one week.

    [email protected] is our best method of communication for the time being, and we will be able to begin answering emails shortly. Please Do not ship UPS or Fedex until we have verified that they are again servicing the area. Until then, please use our post office box for all shipping and correspondance.

    atleast the business is intact, they could have had a total disaster if the biz had burned.

    Thank goodness they made it out alive - everything else can be replaced.

    God bless the people affected by that mess.

    Wow! That sucks!

    I hope they can get back on their feet quickly!

    At least no one got hurt.

    Things can be replaced, people, not so much...

    That really is lousy to hear about your house as well as everything that was in it.

    Are you in need of any donations or such? Keep us informed how its going!
