    that right there is human generosity at its finest, John probably save several hundred it not thousands of lives by doing what he did, im a firm believer in the old addage, i would rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6, human kindness comes in all shapes and forms, I wished my truck had been running in top shape.
    I also think that alot of pple now that live near guys like us with our bahemoth trucks will look a little differently than they did before.

    I sat and just stared at the monitor after reading his journal.
    Unbelievable. Makes me re-think a lot of things.
    I am so glad this is documented so that I may send it to others I know.

    John is one **** of an human being.

    See my Ebay Online Store for all your replacement decal needs.


    In life, you only need 2 tools - WD-40 and Duct Tape.

    If it doesn't move but should, use the WD-40.

    If it should not move and does, use the duct tape.

    Default Must Read! Hurricane Katrina

    For some of you folks this will be old news but lots of folks haven't read this yet. When I was looking over the roadside assistance list created by "Sarge" a few years back I remembered his story of Hurricane Katrina and what he did. This is John Stewart-Smiths story in his words. Maybe your eyes will well up or maybe you'll just say **** YES but either way, take 10 minutes out of your busy day and read what this man has done!
