Late this afternoon after we had gotten settled into the RV park at Red Deer, a knock was heard on our door, and a man from the RV park asked if we had some extra chains they could use. A large RV with a toad (that means a car they pull behind) had tried toÂ maneuverÂ its way into its place. Sadly, they had run into a snowbank and became stuck. They tried to work their way out, but to no avail. The park management had observed our use of chains that John had used under our tires to help us get parked in the slippery conditions and then to give traction to get back out.
John suited up in his coveralls and went to see if he could help, bringing our second set of chains.Â After a tree was trimmed (AKA really cut back), John worked to get the chains on, which was no easy feat in the way the RV was stuck.
To summarize the story, John put the chains on, and then a man showed up in a pickup, and offered to help by giving a pull. So, with the combined effort of the pickup and the chains, the RV was able to back out. It was a cold, wetÂ situation, but John had an incredible attitude.
You just never know what might happen next–eh?
