Happy Monday Watchers!
I’m writing this newsletter sitting in the backseat of my dad’s truck on the way home from a weekend in the mountains ⛰ with my fam.
This same truck almost got us stuck on a narrow mountain road. My dad wanted to go look at a kayak just outside of Boone, NC. We were following the seller’s directions down the steepest gravel road I’ve ever seen. All of the sudden the truck started slipping! 😨 We realized we’d gone too far and tried to back up, but had zero traction in the back wheels.
Trying to turn around only made things worse. ❌ Just as we were feeling royally screwed, the friendly kayaker came and found us. He brought over his tractor 🚜 and slowly hauled my dad’s Toyota Tundra up the mountain road. Needless to say - we bought the kayak.
What are you feeling thankful for today? Right now I’m feeling thankful for family, friendly tractor drivers and unlimited data.
Cheers from Charleston ✌️
