High center in the snow

High center in the snow

Monday, January 15th, 2024, at 10:57 a.m. (PT), we received this request for an offroad recovery in Washington for a second time. The first time it was shared online with a local group, The Gorge Off Road and Recovery, the requester, John Mccafferty, thought he found help initially and canceled the first request, but a day later, he posted asking for help in our system.

A ride, from 3801 peters dr Hood River 97031 / I’m not with the vehicle.

We started looking for volunteers. Three minutes after submitting the request, we had Tad Johnston taking over the request. He contacted John to coordinate and drove him from Hood River to WA, to get his vehicle recovered. By 2:00 p.m. Tad updated the lobby of our system and closed the request. He got John’s vehicle recovered.

Thanks, Tad, awesome job. (offroad recovery in Washington)
