Yesterday I was out on a trail recon for the upcoming ride when I ran across an old lady broke down on a logging road. I was the first person she'd seen all day. Even though she was in her 70's or 80's, she was well prepared to spend a week or two out in the bush if need be, so she'd a been alright for a while.
I took her to town so she could call a tow truck. There was no cell service where she was broke down at. I was so disappointed in the tow services we contacted. None would send a truck up even though it was a well maintained forest service road. One tow company would do it but his tow truck was broke down and in the shop. She got a hold of her son and he came to pick her up.
I would have pulled her back to town but Mr. Obvious said I couldn't do it. At least I did what I could. Lydia was a hoot. Vietnam War Era Army Nurse. She cussed and carried a pistol, what more do you want. Got to hear some great stories on the way back to town.
Admiral to the rescue. Why am I not surprised?

Lydia actually asked me to go to town and ask for a wrecker. When it became apparent nobody was really being helpful I went back up the mountain and brought her to town. We then called some more without luck...except getting in touch with her son. I hope to go back in a day or two just to make sure the truck got safely towed.
Good for you Kris!!
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

I'm thinking how can my buddy and I miss out on this!? Trying logistically to break free from work for a few days and I think I can pull it off. I am planning to figure it out...hell, screw that, I am going to make this happen. Elk burgers for all!!! Give me an idea on a head count Admiral and I will grind enough for all.
Had my first day off today in three months. My next will be enjoying an Idaho Elk burger with you and new found friends in a couple of weeks. See you soon! If I can reserve space for one small tent that would be great. Otherwise I will sleep on top of Lucile. 🙂 Good job on the rescue with the young lady with the gun. We gotta take care of each other.
Wow, that's quite a suspension issue the lady had... nice job helping her out. Karma kudos!
