<b><i>Timbersleds to the rescue...<br></b></i>
Moab Powersports Timbersled Guides and Royce’s Electronics employees travel through heavy snow in the Abajo Mountains in southeast Utah to restore Internet service for River Canyon Wireless. Mike Brewer, Burk Priest and Chris Jacobson from Moab Powersports Timbersled Guides transported Andrew Vigil of River Canyon Wireless at Royce’s Electronics to make repairs at a communications tower at the top of the Abajos on Tuesday, Feb. 2. The Timbersleds enabled the group to reach the tower without the need to be flown in by helicopter, which was the only other available option because of the deep snow. “It was a very technical ride for all involved,” said Moab Powersports owner Dorrica Brewer. On Friday, Feb. 5, the guides are scheduled to head out again to assist with work at another communication tower, according to Brewer. Photo courtesy of Doricca Brewer
