How do people live in places like that? although they do have junk yards which is handy so poverty is good for something. Even Squeaky Frome wouldn't have got out of the car to get that tool box if Manson told her to. Thats some girlfriend. Mine would'nt even pick up my tool box much less out-run Robert with it. amazing what the need for drugs will do. its a shame we get footage of everything Robert does, but not this.

Mod note - We generally don't do external fund raising of any kind here as it interferes with the MVS mission - I think this is in the website terms.

Hy abscate

You may know the forum rules better than me. I apologize if I have proposed something forbidden here.

But I'm so disappointed by this story. Whenever I Iive in France, I will do something for him. I've sended him a message. I'm not rich. But knowing what happened to him without tempting something is simply unacceptable, for me. Robert teached me so much about my volvo, send him some stuff is the less that I may do.

Edit : Robert has an mail adress where we can, for those who want, send one or two bocks. [email protected]

25 $ sended.

In the video he mentions that his toolbox was around 500 $ (estimation) : 50 buddies with 10 $, and he'll be ready to help us again. I do remember he was sicked in January, sure he received millions support messages...

This guy is a human odyssey. Millions Volvo, one Roby !

Edit : Unbelievable, I've called his number and he picked up the phone ! Amazing ! I talked to God ! :mrgreen:

He seems to be, whatever the robbery issu, fine. I told him I had opened this post on MVS ! Hope buddies will be at the "rendez - vous"...

Sometimes, the easy way of technology just blows me away.

Vroam !

Ive sent a note to Robert to help clarify how we are going to do this.

I will start a new thread for this once we know how we will proceed.
