July 7th, at 11:04 AM (PST), we received a recovery request from near Coos Bay, where Brandon Koch got stuck in soft sand in his Ford F150. His request information read:“Off north transit parkway before the big bridge. Stuck on the north beach access. I hit some soft sand and bottomed out hard. I tried digging around and putting carpet and sticks but it’s not going anywhere. / I’m with the vehicle”.
We verified the contact information and location of the request and submitted the recovery to volunteers nearby at around 11:13 AM. By 12:18 PM, we got Avery Howell, a volunteer who was 10 minutes away from the incident in route to help.
The recovery was closed by Avery at 12:59 PM. Later Brandon sent us a thank you note by text. He was more than appreciative about our organization helping him. Good job Avery, you saved the day!.
Special thanks to Brandon who after the recovery became a patreon subscriber!
