ATTN Oregon Readers, I need your help!

Some good friends of mine were just struck by tragedy and I'm hoping that you, my readers in Oregon, can help out. They were en route from Seattle to Burning Man and well I'll let them explain it in their own words:

If you are in Oregon (around the Eugene/Springfield area), please be on the lookout for a STOLEN PICKUP TRUCK--the primary vehicle for the Pepper Conduit theme camp, containing all of our gear, half our food, all of our drinking water, and our shade structures (not to mention personal clothing and wine and tequila). It's a dark blue 1985 Nissan King Cab, with a tall, unusually shaped white canopy and a spare tire on the left rear wheel. Canopy extends pickup bed almost 2 feet in the back, and the canopy has its own taillights.

Was stolen from Junction City, Oregon, sometime between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Thursday, August 21st, 2008. When last seen, it had Washington plates, a Burning Man symbol on the lower right rear canopy door, a small sticker of an octopus on left rear corner of canopy, and racks on top of the canopy.

The truck contains nothing of monetary value, but it does contain some items that are of extreme sentimental value to owners. Namely, our entire theme camp.

The theft has been reported, but it has destroyed our vacation plans. IF YOU SEE THIS TRUCK, please call local police

Now I know I have more than a few readers in that neck of the woods, I know this is a longshot, but please spread the word and if you see the stolen truck in question please call the police.
