My Wife and I were headed down to Louisiana to camp for a couple days while avoiding the Snow back home in Missouri. On the way down we stopped at George P Cossar State park in Mississippi for one night. While pulling out in the morning it was a tight fit, and our very nice man, Byron, came out and assisted with directions to get me out of the spot.

Then as we were pulling out and thanking him, he asked if I had a clear elbow connector for the sewage line. When I told him "no" he ran to his truck and came back with a brand new clear elbow for me.

He then proceeded to tell me a camper had previously done the same for him, and when Byron tried to pay that man for the part, he would not take Byron's money. Simply telling Byron "If you must, go buy one and give it to the next camper you meet that does not have one."

So Byron, If you happen to be on this forum and read this, thank you sir for your assistance, my new sewage connector, and most importantly for your hospitality.

To the next random camper we see, you will receive a new clear sewage connector with wash out valve for your sewage hose.

If you haven't already, watch the movie Paying it Forward. Good job to both of you.

I love campers, I have seen many examples of paying it forward over the years.

Check out a very old movie called, "Magnificent Obsession". It has Rock Hudson, Agnes Morehead and Jane Wyman in it.

Indeed. Wish more people could be as courteous and helpful. It would make this world a better place!
