Letter: Thanks for help

Recently my husband and two friends took their boat to CJ Strike Reservoir. They had only just exited the truck and were approaching the boat trailer when two “younger men” approached saying “Do you need help?” and without waiting for an answer proceeded to get this boat in the water. My husband and his friends (all older guys) were so appreciative. Needless to say – that’s Idaho.

We hope that all you newcomers will respect and appreciate the spirit of Idaho. That is the spirit that doesn’t run red lights, lets you merge into traffic, smiles when we don’t even know you and – helps you launch your boat. Tim Woodward once said “if you are lost in Home Depot and someone helps you that doesn’t work there – you are in Idaho.”
