On June 12, my husband and I were on the second day of our vacation when we had car trouble just outside Nelson. We would like to acknowledge and thank the many people who provided assistance to us; Mark (an off-duty firefighter) and his wife, who helped us at the side of the road; tow truck drive from Western Auto Wrecker; the staff at Civic Auto, for repairing our car, despute tremendously busy schedule; the two women at the Budget rental place in Nelson; the woman at the BCAA in Nelson, who arranged for insurance on our rental car; and Maria, at Mistiso’s Place, for allowing us to have a later check-out time.
Everyone was exceptionally friendly, helpful and good-natured during a stressful time for us. And, although we had to modify our vacation plans, we were able to experience many enjoyable moments during our Kootenay/Rockies vacation. Thank you to the Nelson community.
