Wink Looking for the knight in shining armor who gave me a "tow" in Lakewood on April 14th

Well I donít know how many of these jeep forums exist but I thought Iíd try posting on a few and see if it works. Guess that makes me either crazy or determined

On April 14th, I was off Bridgeport in Lakewood, WA. My car was hung up on a very high curb. Several people were kind enough to stop and offer help but you were the only one who actually had a vehicle that could do it! It was a Jeep Wrangler, Iím not an expert at all, maybe an TJ or YJ or LJ? One of those two door open frame type vehicles. It was dark, maybe dark green or blue. You had a winch in the front; I asked if you had a boat but you said it was for 4-wheeling.

You were wearing jeans, a dark pea coat, and a cap. Couldn't see your hair but you had brown facial hair. I'm blonde, was dressed in blue. Either you donít like bagels or found the offer of a bagel very weird (probably the latter!). My car was perched rather precariously off of a high curb and I was waiting for a tow truck with a very kind old man who wanted to see if I needed help.

First of all, thank you again SO much! You wouldn't take anything for your efforts except for a hug, and after I drove off I felt bad that I didn't even offer to buy you dinner or something! And you so totally made my day, you have no idea. Itís funny because as I told this story to my friends the first thing they ALL askedÖĒWas he cute?!Ē Whatever happened to are you ok; is your vehicle ok? Seriously, even my dad, who heard the story from my sister, asked her how old was he? But guess what, you were SUPER cute and I am a total idiot for not giving you my number because aside from my desire to say thank you properly, if you are single, more than one dinner would be great

If you read this, please tell me something that only you would know about that day. I canít believe Iím working so hard to find you so I really donít want to embarrass myself any more than possible!

Most Jeepers are always helpful.... but super cute? That eliminated most of us mud toads.....

Does this also mean we'll be starting a WF date line forum?

It was me. You can see my picture on the left.

I guess sitting around and eating a bunch of bagels is as arbitrary as drinking coffee.

Well I am glad I could create an amusing forum for everyone regardless of age, looks, marital status, etc. lol! Actually the bagels were in my car, I had just picked them up before I pulled my dumb driving over the curb stunt.

Hmmm maybe you SHOULD start a jeep dating forum; perhaps there is a need?

Sweety, you have no idea. If you have quite a few friends you could really help all the "tension" around this forum.

Jeep guys usually go prepared. I'd say I always go prepared but I leave the cream cheese and jam at home.

If you want to truly find your Knight in camo'd armor I highly suggest you look on pirate. It is the mother of mecca for jeepers. Post there. I'm positive you will find him.

Also try http://nw-wheelers.com we're pretty localized to where you are at in the Puget sound area. Good luck. Post up on Craigslist.

I'm glad that you picked up on what I was putting down. What can I tell you to prove it was me?... hmmm... I was dressed in my L.L. Bean casual wear. I winked and smiled and I felt we had a real connection. I'm usually not this forward, but will you go to the prom with me?
