Broken down in Wyoming

Tuesday, October 31st, at 9:03 a.m. (MT), we received a request for help with an offroad recovery in Wyoming. Craig Rice, the requester, submitted the following: “I’m off the Nowater road heading to bull mountain. I’m about 9 miles back in. I’m dead in the water. Large hole in transfer case and front drive line broken. I left the vehicle and plan to go back to Thermopolis on Friday. It’s a black Nissan Titan. Any help would be appreciated / I’m not with the vehicle

We contacted Craig back, and after confirming his contact information and the location of the vehicle, we requested some photos. Once the ticket was ready, it was submitted to local volunteers.

We invited all local volunteers within 90 miles. This area is pretty far from any big cities. By 9:15 a.m., we had Liam Prior, a local volunteer, offering to help either Thursday or Friday.

No more than 30 minutes after that, Craig informed us, he found help from friends for the weekend. So we canceled the ticket. But, we still want to thank all volunteers who participated, responded to the request, and even offered help. You guys rock.
