Food for thought......

As we travel along me and Willa are always on the look out for other motor home folks along side the road. When we see a coach on the side of the road I always slow down for safety 'cause some people are old and dont look back before they pull back out into traffic. (me for instance) Anyhow, I will go by them kinda slow to see if they might have a problem or if they are just talking on the cell, eatin a sandwich, taking a ''walk around'', going to pottie, or maybe changing drivers. Either way, I always slow down and look because some folks may need help in some way and I Just hate to walk back about a half a mile after I get stopped.
With this in mind, here is what I propose............

IF YOU ARE BROKEN DOWN ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND MAY NEED HELP, TIE SOMETHING WHITE TO YOUR DRIVERS SIDE REAR VIEW MIRROR. (a tee shirt will work fine and you can just stick the mirror thur the sleeve or the neck of the shirt. For ladies traveling alone I suggest a large'm teasin' THIS CAN BE DONE FROM INSIDE THE COACH BY SIMPLY ROLLING DOWN THE WINDOW. The shirt (or BRA) would be visible from a long distance and folks would know you need help.

I think this is food for thought and it would let others know when you need help. Me and Willa stop along side the road sometimes and other campers do slow down and look at us. We give them the hi sign and they usually toot an ok .....

Be real nice to our troops when you see them and tell them thanks for their service to this great nation.

Excellent suggestion, thanks Seajay. Most people that break down in cars do something similar. The HP or Safety patrol usually stop to check if anyone is in the vehicle and offer assistance when they see something hanging out their window.

Even if you have called for assistance when broken down it can let others know you are not about to pull out in traffic. Or, even better yet, encourage those that are concerned and have the time to stop to offer assistance. After all, we are a pretty close community of RVers.

Well, I don't own any white T shirts... By hanging a bra on the mirror may attract someone you really don't want to stop LOL !
