We ran around today accomplishing more tasks that needed attention. Starting and stopping several times all over the area. When we decided to take a break and watch the waves a few minutes we headed to the Beach Park. But first a necessity stop was made at the Harbor public restrooms.

On coming back to Sierra, the OFM climbed into the seat, hit the start button and nothing happened. A couple of more tries and he knew we were in trouble.  OOPS his phone was at the Castle. A quick look around could not see any of the old fishing buddies. The Aransas County Navigation District office was just across the street. So the OFM desperately strolled across the street.

Entering the door he was nicely welcomed. After explaining his plight, the nice lady at the desk offered him to use a phone to call the roadside assistance the Teams has. As that call was being made, one of the resident boat dwellers ( a marine style of RV life) came in to get his mail. After he heard our plight, he generously offered to walk back to his boat slip and get his car to jump Sierra.

He and his wonderful puppy went back and was soon back to the site of the stress and the OFM. The vehicles were jumped and Sierra fired right up.  Massive Thank Yous were given out and we headed to Walmart.

Thirty minutes later and $185 broker the OFM Teams were on their way. We also replaced our jumper cables that had insulation crumbling from them with new ones.  It was an expensive afternoon but at least it was where we could get wonderful folks to help. We feel fortunate that the flat tire from last week and the failed battery today did not happen on the road from Alabama. We still do not recommend either event as something for trying to have tooooo much fun.
