Trail lives up to its friendly billing

I heard about the friendly people in your part of the world and I experienced it first hand when we attended the Seniors Games.

I heard about the friendly people in your part of the world and I experienced it first hand when we attended the Seniors Games.

It started when we were driving into Trail with a car frantically blowing its horn and stopping in front of us. A pretty young lady jumped out and yelled we had a gas leak in our motorhome. Sure enough, gas was pouring out of a broken fuel line. She left before we could thank her.

Next was when we went to the Trail Motel and RV Park to set up as we had made a reservation six months ago. They had never heard of us as the previous owners didn’t pass on the reservations.  Since we had four cats on board we had to get power to run the air con for them. The owners went to great lengths to squeeze us in and and get power for us.

We spent one night and then a lady named Lenore called the motel and asked if there was a couple there looking for a slot as they just had a cancellation at the Trail RV Park. Thanks to her we settled in to a lovely spot for the rest of our stay.

When I went to the Chamber of Commerce/Teck office to see about the smelter tour I was treated like a king by the ladies there, and our tour guide, Jim, was superb.

All in all a most pleasant stay in your great city with the friendliest people I know.
