Baja racer to the rescue in San Diego!

Saw this posted on FB and thought I would share it here. When I first clicked the link, I was hoping to see Ramsey (Agile Offroad) doing the saving, but it was the folks at ORW.

No rain here in Cabo area!

Elias is a friend though - I'm sure he had fun.

I wonder how much body damage he created. And by terrain, did he mean water covered black top? Lol!

Yeah I'd be worried about being sued for body damage. People are jerks at times. You try to help them out, I mean I'd bet every one of those folks said please get me out of here no matter what, but later I wouldn't be surprised if they'd come back screaming that he scratched my car. I like to have faith in humanity but...

Strap might have been a better solution...

But then you have to get out of your vehicle and get wet hooking the strap up!

And they pick where to attach the line to the stranded vehicle so when the good samaritan rips the bumper off it's Mr. Stranded's fault.
