Stranded travelers find helpful, friendly community

On Aug. 2, 2012, on our way to our vacation, our RV broke down in the parking lot of Kwik Trip. During the six hours my husband worked on finding out what was wrong, several members of your community approached us to lend a helping hand or give mechanics' names to us. Two mechanics helped us out during the day, Larry and Lyman. Not only were they helpful, they were very nice people.
Kwik Trip was really nice as well and we never felt like we were a bother (although our RV stuck out like a sore thumb).
Our family made it to our destination - our camper did not. We had to have it towed. We wanted to let Spring Valley know how nice you were to us in a difficult situation.
Thank you very much to all who stopped to see if they could help.
