Well heres my little story about today's activities. Let me say now all I know if the guy that helped me is named Mike, he drive a Chevy 5500 series with an XJ and a YJ (I am pretty sure) in tow. I asked him and he said he isn't a member of the clubs but frequents SMORR and does alot of work there. This is kinda a long story but it is Jeepers like Mike that give jeepers a good name and make me willing to help anyone out there that I can help. Mike if you see this THANKS AGAIN!!!!

OK So on with the Story. It's about 2pm and I am at home watching TV when my wife comes in, Phone for me. On the line is Larry (Ghost). He say hey whats up? Right away I say whats broke knowing he's at SMORR. Well he says nothing for me but Albert (a newbie to the jeeping world) has a broke T-Case and needs a tow. OK I tell them see in a couple hours and I run and grab the trialer (in the rain)

Well I drive to SMORR and my On board computer says I got 40 miles to empty when I get there so I figure get loaded and get to Marshfield to fill up. Well I get his TJ loaded and head home. Well I turn off 60 and onto A. I get 8 miles from MArshfield on A and truck shuts down. Dammit outa fuel. Well I jump out and get ready to walk to town to pick up 5 gallons of diesel to get moving again and just then here comes Mikes truck with jeeps in tow. He stops and asks if we need a hand, I figure heck yea a ride to town to get fuel. I tell him I'm out of diesel he says GREAT. I think yea great, but he says I got a tank and can help you out. Well he backed next to my dodge and started pumping. When he did I opened my purge valve hit the key a few times, closed the valve and it fired. He put his hose away. I didn't have cash so I offered to follow him to town and I'd pay him and he sadi no. Well the guy whos jeep I went to get offered him some cash (well his wife offered) and he said no again and we shook hands and he jumped in his truck and drove off.

Fred I think your referring to Cowboy Mike, if he had a black cowboy hat on then that was him! He is one of the guys that helps out at the Park on event Weekends and other weekends as well! Great Trail guide + some. He is a good man and great to have help at the park! He doesn't have a computer so I will pass the word on to him when I see him k.

If you go to an Off Road Park and don't see .... Welcome To Southern Missouri Off Road Ranch .... at the Entrance then you're at the Wrong Off Road Park!! I guarantee it!

I'd appreciate it. I thanked him out there but we were in a bad spot and had to both get moving. I more wanted to get the word out on the web there are some great people out there
