Pecos Memories ::

To The Wonderful People of Pecos, I had the fortunate experience of meeting some of your residents during a less-than-fortunate incident. I was traveling from Lake Havasu City, AZ to Pueblo CO to deliver a boat I had sold to a man in Denver. My boat is not a 16 or 18 footer it is 36 foot long. After filling my truck at one of your gas stations I was in a hurry to get back on the road. Thinking I was headed in the wrong direction I made a quick and not-so-well-thought-out turn. Or should I say attempt at a turn. My turn left me with the trailer high centered blocking the entire street. My anxiety shot up as I began to grasp for ways out of an almost impossible one-man situation. But within minutes, perhaps seconds, there were five or six gentleman there to help - and if I had enlisted the help of all that asked if they could help there would have been about 20 or 30. After a little contemplation by all of us one gentleman told me he would be right back with a piece of equipment. In just a few minutes he returned with a backhoe and in a short while the boat was back on the street and hooked up to my truck. Was I ever relieved. I asked for a business card from the gentleman with the backhoe in order to send him something, but he said, "no problem". I cannot tell you enough how much that experience meant to me. It may seem like a relatively minor happening but it was a wonderful reminder that there are many, many good people in this country - and many of them live in Pecos! If you have a way to get this message to the folks of Pecos it would be appreciated. I want to thank all of you who helped and all of you who offered to help. I will always visit your town on my journeys to Colorado. You have a wonderful community and your people are what make it so. Thank you. Scott Mathews
