Headin' back from town this afternoon in 96' weather. My canyon is very popular with city folks when the weather gets hot - nice river to cool off in, lotsa swimming holes...
Came around a corner and 3 kids in a Honda were stuck in a ditch, they saw the jeep and pretty much figured their ordeal was over *grins*
Their driving wheels had dug holes and they were high centered, they had a light piece of 1/8" rope best described as unwound from a recovery ball of twine,which had broken twice - no way !!
I broke my 30 ft 2" recovery strap out of it's unopened bag, hooked up, popped it into 4 lo and 3 seconds later they were out
The recovery strap was the first thing I bought after buying my tow truck...ummm...jeep, and I'm glad I did
They were good kids, doing nothing dafter than I'd done at their age - felt good to help them...........
Last weekend, on my off-road bike, I ran into 3 young teens totally lost, hot & sweaty, 3 miles from their parent's campsite - rode to the campsite, led the parents back to the kids - didn't have to read about 'em on the evening news *grins*
Nice to help, but, not every weekend *grins*
