My dad and I were snowmobiling out by Elma when my machine ran out of oil. Being in the middle of nowhere, it was looking like quite the predicament.
Other sleds stopped, but they did not have any oil with them. (Wise snowmobilers always have full tanks, so they do not carry extra oil.) These folks did come up with suggestions and offers to try to help me out.
My dad and I walked towards the highway to flag someone down when a truck passed by just before we reached the shoulder. The truck drove on for about a quarter mile down the road then stopped and turned around.
The driver, Mr. McConnell, pulled up and asked if we were having problems. I explained my predicament and wishfully and jokingly asked if he had snowmobile oil in his truck. He did! And he gave it to me free of charge.
I filled my sled with oil and fired it up. I was good to go. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. I will definitely pay this forward.
