Stranger Pays It Forward To Hiking Group

On a hike, friends Derek Froese, Lee Kliewer, Jon Friesen, Miranda Mulder, Samantha Fischer and Vanessa Epps, found themselves out of gas and stuck. Hiking in British Columbia in the Fraser Valley to Mount Cheam. Froese said “We were going to Mount Cheam. Get to the top with no casualties, snacks in tact.” Although they noticed they were low on gas, they decided to keep going. Kliewer said “I think when you’re going uphill your gas reads a little bit lower. When you’re going downhill you can coast most of the way down, going neutral.”

Once their tank ran empty, they chose to leave their vehicle with a note under the windshield wiper reading, “LOW ON GAS. FILL US UP, TAKE THE MONEY.” They also left $30 on the windshield. Friesen shared “It was a little bit nerve-racking leaving the truck with some cash, and a note and just hoping for the best." Yet, when they returned to their vehicle, they found that someone filled their tank up and also left their money in the gas compartment.

Mulder stated “The best part of the hike was hearing Sam yell ‘We have gas!’” The anonymous good Samaritans also left a note reading, “we gased [sic] you up! Check the gas compartment. Pay it forward.” Froese said “I was really surprised the money was still there. Somebody just thought they’d help us out and make our day and that was really awesome.” Fischer added “Next time we go up we’ll have our own jerry can of gas. And if anyone else is in the same predicament, help them.”
