I live in Wisconsin’s Northwoods. In the winter Snowmobiling is winter recreation for a large number of people.
It also helps the economy in many areas.
I was out taking photos for an Appraisal Agency in the Minocqua, WI area. The roads are not the best in the winter and we just had a week
of rain. I hit a patch of ice and my 2003 Envoy went in the ditch. A large ditch! No, I wasn’t speeding, fortunately
for me and the vehicle.
After the incident I tried to call the police and a wrecker. Well that doesn’t work very well when you don’t have any
reception on your cell phone. got out of the vehicle and walked up the road still didn’t get any reception. I said 9-1-1.
So I called it barely got the call through.
Once I finished talking to the operator. I had to wait for the police and a wrecker.
The first person to come along was a woman in her car asking if everything was all right and if there was anything she could do. I assured her
I was fine and I would be ok. She was on her way to church.
I was right across the road from a snowmobile trail and soon along came two people on snowmobiles and stopped and asked if I was ok and if
there was anything they could do.
After awhile more snowmobiles showed up and everyone ask if there was anything they could do. In fact one of the local people said they had a tractor
to pull my vehicle out. I was amazed that every single one of these 20 or so people stopped and offered and was willing to lend a hand.
Just want these people to know that I really appreciated all of the willingness to help me out.
It makes a person feel good inside to know that there are really good people in this world. This is the kind of thing that should be but on the evening
News vs the violence and all the negative acts that are report now a days.
Thank you again to all the people who offered to help me out when I was in the ditch last Saturday.
