HELP!! Stranded burners near SLC!

Postby $h!ne » Sun Aug 24, 2014 8:48 am

Can anyone help these guys out?
They are on their way home and have been stranded for 12 hrs. I really want them to make it to the playa. <3 Any help would be appreciated. Hoping for a miracle!

This was posted on fb on the Utah Burners page:

"Wes Modes

Urgent Burner Need/Miracle Needed: Hi, all. Thanks to those who passed this on originally. I am Rico, the co-founder of Costco Soulmate Trading Outlet (12th or 13th burn) traveling with Canis Latrans. Us and our burning-bound Shantyboat are stuck in Salt Lake City. Our tow vehicle broke down for the fourth and final time after days and days in SLC. We were expected at Costco to help set up days ago.

I've never tried to use the Burner Network this way but I am officially desperate. Do you have or do you know anyone who can rent or loan a reliable tow vehicle from SLC on very short notice? Or can we hitch our Shantyboat to your playa-bound vehicle? All the tow companies are closed on weekends.

Please call or text 831-704-6690 ASAP and pass on far and wide.

We will happily do a lion's share of the driving, contribute to gas and cheer, sing songs, read you stories, mix you White Russians, and introduce you to the charming Costco barstaff.

Here's the project the shantyboat is coming from on national news: http://t.co/qBb6DfL8c2"

Bumping with a heartfelt "Hold tight and keep the faith, folks".

...passing it all on, and hoping everyone else does too, so the info gets to the person who can actually help.

I texted a link to that number of a possible solution I could come up with - a super cheap but stout old F250 on SLC Craigslist that could be had for $1000 or so. Sell it afterwards for $500 and you just got cheap rental for the event

They managed to get their truck going again!! They are enroute, but since their transportation has proven to be unreliable they would would still love a tow if possible. They said to please, look out for them ESPECIALLY if anyone sees them on the side of the road!! Thanks!

I hope so... :D They seem like really great people! They have broken down several times and it sure would be nice for them to catch a break and have smooth sailing from here on out!
