Letter — Visitor gets help from auto shop

Worst travel experience: On a chain control day earlier this month at Lake Tahoe the power steering in my 10-year-old minivan went out. It was a Sunday, my kids (but not my husband) were with me and I thought I was sunk.

Rescue came in the form of Two Amigos Automotive, a nearby garage whose mechanics just happened to be working that day. They diagnosed the problem, found the needed parts, fixed the car and charged a reasonable fee. In two hours we were back on the road.

While we waited the generous owners of Ernie’s Coffee Shop, across the parking lot from the garage, ushered us in and warmed our hearts with hot chocolates and cookies.

My sincere thanks to these good Samaritans. And now you know where to get your car fixed if it breaks down at Tahoe.
