Jade Festival Day One: Firefighters to the Rescue!

Great first day, albeit a little cold.

My friend Mary and I had a bit of an adventure on the way down, however. My brand-new tire was punctured by some rock or something. Well, Plaskett Ridge Rd. is closed. No traffic. My jack is missing its pump bar. Not good. Mary and I discuss…to drive on the rim on the dirt, or no. Hmmm…

While we are trying to figure out what to do, who comes by but a couple firefighters. YAY!! These guys go above and beyond. Their jack works, They change the tire. I HAVE to get their photo.

These are the two wonderful young firefighters: Bryan R. of the Tahoe National Forest and Brian E. of the El Dorado National Forest. Thanks, guys for EVERYTHING!! Without you, we might still be stuck on the mountain top instead of enjoying ourselves at the Jade Festival!!

YOU ARE THE BEST!!! Mary & bigsurkate!

Oh, and I MUST add a great big thank you to the ex, who ran the shredded tire down to Morro Bay for me, and picked me up a new tire, as well as a very fancy floor jack, ultralight, so I could handle it myself, and an LED system on the head, so it lights up the bottom of the Jeep, so I can see where I am placing it. A little expensive, but just think, I can open up my own floor jack rental business! LOL

  1. Thanks firefighters for taking car of Kate & Mary for us! 🙂

    And YES it IS cold! Yesterdays winds up here were wild and brought in the first real touches of autumn, but they died down overnight and the cold remained. The ocean looks like winter already.

    I’ve been begging Rob still for a nice lazy drive down there and back. I mentioned he could drop me at the Jade fest and take off for parts unknown with his camera and the dogs. he’s still being stubborn. 😛

  2. Thank you so much for posting the picture and kind words about the above fitefighters – Bryan Rosenow is my son and indeed I am very proud of him and his fellow firefighters.
    It’s nice to see him doing something less hazardous in the woods LOL!

  3. Oh, Penny, I am so glad you found this!! I know you will make sure your son does, also. He and the other Brian turned what could have been a disaster into an adventure!! You have raised a wonderful young man, and have every right to be proud of him!

    Oh, and Bryan? I have it on good authority that you just had a birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 😉
