    Gauley River

    Hi fellow TRV investors

    I just got back from a great kayak trip down the Gauley River in West Virginia

    WOW, talk about great white water. The Gauley has some of the best in the USA especially in October when they open the dam

    Rapids such as Iron Ring, Pure Screaming Hell, and Sweet Falls are beyond description

    Iron Ring, a Class 5 rapid was awesome
    Pure Screaming Hell, another Clazss 5 rapid was well, Pure Screaming Hell
    And Sweet Falls, a class 6 rapid was the best. Think about dropping over a 6 foot waterfall in a kayak

    Hey Malum, you ought to try it. Maybe going over a 6 foot waterfall in a kayak will knock a little bit of common sense into that so-called brain of yours

    As I was punching my kayak over Sweet Falls I thought about TRV and Jay's strategy of keeping long-time employees who do not help our bottom line

    How can he justify keeping a number of the adjustors and claim lawyers who caused the massive massive Reliance, SPC and USF&G losses to stay on at TRV

    Isn't he worried that when the surety bond market begins to crash that these same people will adjust the losses as poorly as they previously did?

    Why didn't he clean house out of Philly and Baltimore adjustor offices where many of these adjustors are hanging out a decade after those huge SPC losses were incurred

    I know Freddie has always said, if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen and head to the beach and fish

    Well, maybe it is time for these clzaim lawyers and adjustors to head to the beach and fish
