Came across a couple from Virginia broke down on the south service road west of Wright City mo. Didn't get much time to chat. They had tied up and blocked the RRR. Tow truck from Skyline in Forestell had a HUGE tow truck (SEmi Type) had helped them. Looks like they drove about 300' on the backing plate and about 1 1/2 inches(1.5") was gone and they nicked the spindle. Gave my name and numbers. They had about 3-4 miles to Skylines lot and 12 miles to my place. I have a 30' AC'd garage thats 4.5 miles closer but Slyline was still closer. Wish I could help,,,,I'm taking some critical training on new Progamable contolers and its 12hrs a day. I have no spare spindles. I mentioned that they need to get ahold of the 2 Jims,,,,they stated that was in the works. Wish them luck,,,,,,PL

On the way into work, observed the Virginia couple at Skyline Motors in Foresstell. Parked close to one of their buildings. Hope they were able to run out a cord,,,,,,,,
