    Years ago, I was bay fishing on a beautiful day. I heard strange sounds as we drifted across the skinny turquoise water jigging for specks. Once I realized it was voices shouting over the water from a 1/4 mile away, I realized they needed help. They had not the proper safety equipment on a company boat. Like a whistle or emergency flares. Those were the days before cell phones were prevalent. It was a beautiful boat, but not one for shallow flats. Needless to say, they run aground on the mud bottom and were stuck in the middle of the bay. The mud bottom makes a suction action on the bottom of the boats hull preventing any form or recovery. The only remedy is to manually lift the side of the boat (ourselves standing in the water) up and down repeatedly, to get small air pockets between the mud and the boat hull to release the sucking it effect. It did suck. Long story short, we were wet but we got them out. I remember the awe on their faces when it finally came free. Karma is real. Pass on the positivity forward.

    LOL, yeah, it usually is the other way around! My husband drives an F-250 & thinks my Jeep is "ok", but DOES NOT get the whole Jeep thing. He keeps reminding me of how much $$$ I've already put into my JL - then he says, "I hope you're done for a while hon", to which I reply, "how long is a while?"... opposites attract ... he did help me install my EVO Enforcer Stage 2 tho

    Love seeing people helping others! You never know when it may be you or a loved one in those situations and hopefully the right person comes along!

    When my wife was in college in the mid 90's, her vehicle broke down on I-30 in Arkansas and she did not have any way of contacting anyone. Being that it is a very busy interstate and miles between exits she was very upset and just sat in her car. Eventually a car hauler that was empty stopped and they were super nice and loaded up her vehicle and took her to the next exit. Just as Eddie and many of us are equipped to help others (and car haulers) it truly blesses someone when we do.
