Nelson extends helping hands

I would like to offer my gratitude to the businesses and individuals of the Nelson area for their kindness and generosity when my motorcycle tour came to an unfortunate end on September 1.

I would like to offer my gratitude to the businesses and individuals of the Nelson area for their kindness and generosity when my motorcycle tour came to an unfortunate end on September 1.

I was traveling from Saskatchewan and touring around BC when I was in an accident in the Nelson area where I was injured and my motorcycle was damaged.

Thanks to the staff of the Kootenay Lake Hospital and ambulance service for their prompt response and care. I’m especially grateful to Mary from the Toad Rock Motorcycle Campground for looking after me after my crash and providing me with the wonderful accommodations.

I wish to provide my utmost appreciation to Kevin, Aaron and their staff of Main Jet Motorsports, and Woody from Kootenay Glass and Mirror for their help in getting my crashed motorcycle back to Saskatchewan.

Thanks to everyone who extended their kindness; you have a beautiful province and wonderful people.
