    Sincere Thanks to the Red Dodge Ram

    Today I was on a long ride (well long for me) and ran out of water. Still pretty warm here in NC, so towards the end of my ride was hurting pretty bad. Decided to pull over to the side of the road to rest. Guy in a Dodge Ram went by tried to stop but couldn't because of traffic. Yelled asking if I was ok, I gave him a big thumbs up, "just needing the rest" I yelled. I was out in the boonies, so there was no easy place to turn around, he went miles out of his way to circle back around to check on me. I was back on the bike by this point, but saw him coming so I pulled over. He then extended a Gatorade and said "this will help you up this hill!" It was much welcome as I was out of water. I know he will never read this thread, but I wanted to post it and tell him "Thanks from a thirsty guy on a bike".

    HA, nope purple with the seal intact. I checked before drinking. Seemed like an up and up guy, but still.

    How dare he presume to offer charity to you, the obviously superior being? How dare you thank him?

    Kicking the dog doesn't make him bad.

    Cool. I'd guess he was a biker himself, but if he wasn't thats more impressive.

    Impossible to know since I did not directly ask him, but he didn't seem to be a biker (again pure speculation).
