I always try to pay it forward and thanks

BTW - Kingman is a pretty cool town. Lots of Route 66 history here. May not get to see it all with the other things going on but it will be on the return list. The weather is much cooler and nice than I would have imagined. Been at the picnic table in complete shade since 7 am... breezy and very nice!
If your in Kingman you need to drive a little southeast to Oatman it's awesome with live shoot outs and wild donkeys that walk in the stores.

God it makes me feel so good to help someone. When I can. Have a great night

My own recent story:

I was traveling down the highway and came across some commotion on the side of the road. As I slowly drove by, I saw a group of cyclists sitting on the road with a group of people huddling around them. I passed, turned around and asked if they needed First Aid (I'm a Level 1 First Aid), to which they retorted "Yes Please"!
Apparently, the woman was crossing some rail road tracks and got her front cycle tire in the rail crossing, did an end over end and landed on her shoulder, elbow and hip. Her skin was gashed open on her elbow down to the bone.
I took out my first aid kit, administered first aid. Someone suggested calling an ambulance, however we were about 15 miles from the city and likely it would take 25 minutes for the ambulance to arrive. I could see she was going into shock. and offered to drive her and her husband to the hospital right away. They agreed and I helped her into my truck, put their bikes in the back and drove them to the Emergency.
I waited for her husband to take her in and then I drove him and the bikes home to get his own vehicle.
He couldn't thank me enough times and offered me money for my troubles.
I refused and said "Maybe one day I'll be on the side of the road and in need of help and I believe someone will also stop for me". I gave him my card and said "Just send me an email and let me know how your wife is doing".
He welled up in tears, shook my hand and said "Thank you so much again" and commended me on my Good Samaritan act.

I left with a full heart!
It made my day and I know it was a good thing to do! I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
A well done to you Les, well done.

The only way to live. What goes around, comes around.

Here is my story of the day. As we were driving into the RV park we stopped at the ice machine. I put my money in and nothing happened. Hmmm! Put a little more money in, just in case. Nothing happened. I pushed a few more buttons and finally the "Change" button. You would have thought I hit the jackpot. Quarters kept filling the coin return, then nickels. I told my neighbor what happened and he had the phone number for the owner of the machine. I called him, told him what happened and that after removing the money I put in he had $15 and some nickels coming to him if he would like to pick it up. He was very appreciative and is making arrangement to come get his money.

Found out he is a Wounded Warrior and he and his wife went into business supplying ice machines around the area.

Feels good.

That's wonderful. See if everyone did something like any of the stories just once a week people would be happier and no more hate. Well I can dream. After all I live on the rainbow.

Now that you mention it, I do recall you having a ponytail when we went to the RV show in Tampa last January. So Carl, when will it be long enough to donate again?

I wish I could grow hair that anyone could use. Even back in the days when long straight hair was "in" my ponytail was about as big around as my pinkie. In the 40 years since my follicular count has dismissed significantly. If I grew it long today I imagine it might only be pencil size.

When I was 7 years old i had long THICK hair and the braids were 15" That was long, my grandmother cut them off at the top. I still remember feeling liberated..... My mother packed them up.... About 6 years ago she found them, i took sent them to Lock of Love. They were still usable, even though they were 50 years old....

Bryce Canyon off road info:
Some roads are ATV/UTV only, and some are also for OHVs (Jeeps, etc).
I think if we talk to the folks at Rubys we will find enough off road to suit us.
These will help:

It took close to 3 years to get it long enough to donate. Not sure I'm going to go that long again without cutting itůit's a lot of work having longer hair Heck, Tim was busy most of the night brushing his!

I actually brush it as little as possible. Every time a brush goes through it all kinds of critters fall out and more turns loose!

This summer it has stayed back in a ponytail or with a bandana ties around forehead, hence the Duck Dynasty remarks.

I believe the only way to the canyon bottom is donkey or hike
Outside there are hundreds of miles of 4 wheel opportunities. But since Bryce is a federal park. Very restricted.
If you need a fantastic day trip go to Zion.

Takes a 1/2 hour to set up and off they go into the wild blue younger. May fly other days and it's a morning and / or evening thing. We will work that out as we go.

I would like to make reservations for Ebenezers Friday 8/21 and will need a head count. Will send an email to the group on that.

As for Jeep trails - and rentals - Jeff - for the unsupervised jeepers - you, Dave, Ed, Dwayne etc... can you (Jeff) look into trails for the Jeep owners...

Tim - are you still thinking of renting a jeep. We probably need to look into that.

I'm still thinking I might want to do the supervised ATV rental - 1 hour ride - right out of Rubys - or maybe the sunset ride.

http://www.rubysinn.com/activities-i...ded-atv-tours/

Then of course there's the park itself. Not sure of the best way to see the park... tour or let's all caravan...

More to come... and it's real mutants! Bryce is upon us....
Hey Steve !!!

I think between Dwayne, Dave, Ed and myself we should be able to come up with an exciting trail or two for a Jeep trip with seating for non Jeep owners included, also it would work for other stock 4-wheel drive vehicles. Remember wheel placement is a key factor for any off-road trip.

Cheers !!!
