Thanks fellow RVer.

A good story for a change. Awning came open a little east of Columbia SC yesterday. I was working on it in the rest area when a gent in a MH drove by and hollered that he'd be back to help. I said I thought I could get it and didn't want to bother him. A few minutes later here he is and said he'd get on the roof and tie it off there. (I'm banned from the roof by my bride since I'm 80 and not svelte). I didn't have the ladder to get to the high rig ladder but he leaped up and pulled himself up (and he was a seasoned citizen too)! In a few minutes it was done and with a handshake and profuse thanks he was gone.

If he reads this I hope he will know how much I appreciate his kindness.

Glad to hear that once again a fellow RVer was able to lend a hand. It is a good community for sure.

Belgique, you may be 80 and not so svelte now, but your avatar suggests you were airborne at one time and likely a force to be reckoned with.

Nice to hear this. It's often a fine line between offering someone help and insulting them. I wait to see if they struggle before jumping in. As I get older and less nimble, I appreciate someone younger or in better shape giving a hand.

Nah. in 1963 the monthly base pay for a 2LT was $222.30. Jump pay was $110. No brainer financial decision. But was also best experience in my career because of the awesome troopers I served with.

OP here for all: Glad you enjoyed the post. My parting words to the gent was that I'd pay it forward. I had hoped he'd see this post. Thanks all.
