Sunday, January 14th, 2024, at 2:52 p.m. (CT), we received a request for help with an offroad recovery in Alabama. The requester, Bronson Grube, submitted the following information: “Could use a winch and someone with good tires. I got out of the rut, but the only way back to the road was through the same hole. / I’m with the vehicle.“
We contacted Bronson by 2:55 p.m., and once we verified the location and contact information, we submitted the ticket to local volunteers at 3:09 p.m.
From the group of local volunteers, Skylar Todd is the one who took over the recovery within the first minute of releasing the request. That has to be some sort of record. 😃
Skylar immediately departed and kept us informed the entire time in our lobby. We also had Adam Baker, another volunteer who marked himself as standing by and offered to help in case Skylar ran into any issues.
By 4:26 p.m., Skylar closed the request and declared in our lobby that Bronson had been recovered. (offroad recovery in Alabama)
We appreciate Skylar’s help and also Adam’s offer to be of assistance. You both rock!
We are always looking for more volunteers in this area. If you would like to receive a text message when we get a request near you, create your account here: offroadportal.org/signup
