The World has problems. Our Republic has problems. We know that; however I found hope for us all. Let me explain.
Attending Americade as my first stop on what was to be a great ride; a ride from Lake George to
Vermont and on to New Hampshire. Then to Bar Harbor and the Acadia NationalPark. After that down to Mystic Seaport.
Then a calamity befell me . While shooting photos and video for this blog, my IPhone fell from my jacket. Didn't notice until I reached for it at Fort Ticonderoga. I searched to no avail. Stopped and asked a fellow if he had seen a phone. His reply was no. Rather then simply saying no, he stepped up and offed to help look for it. Together we again did a through search. Then he had the idea of calling my phone - it rang. Good news for it wasn't bashed on the highway. But no luck in locating. Asked if I had the App: Find My IPhone. no was my reply. I mean, I never would lose my phone! Do you have insurance? No. I never lose my phone.
Mark Green is the name of the man that was so kind and helpful. Mark, also a biker, gave up an hour of his time to help. Thank you again Mark. I was impressed to find a fellow to give up his time and to give of his self to help.
Alas, as I traced my ride all the way back to Lake George looking along the highway. No luck.
without communication, no choice but return home.
I had been riding since 9:00am. Got home at 10:15. Long day in the saddle.
The following morning bought another phone.
Upon returning home from the store, Lynn, told me a guy called and said he had found my phone!
TWO. Two honest and moral good men - bikers - stepped up to help.
Doug Senstemecher stopped at the falls in Ticonderoga. Looked down and there was my phone in the grass. Like I said, fell from my pocket, hit the grass and I didn't hear it hit. Mark Greens phone number was there, Doug called it and Mark told him the story.
So in our daily routine, when we become frustrated with that person or the other, let us remember -
there are good and kind people out there.
Thanks Mark! Thanks Doug!
I will pay it forward.
Another gentlemen is the fellow that shot the photo above. Perhaps you all noticed him along 9N
shooting photos of us as we passed. Since I had stopped to chat earlier with him; stopped again to see if it had dropped there. I got home to find the photo above. He sent it to ease my loss. Nice gesture. Be sure to visit Marks website and find you photo. As you can see he does a fine job in catching us riding.
See You Down The Road
