This one trip they asked me to bring in a new truck so they could put a wrecker body on it. Then they mounted a new car up on the back of it & took U-clamps & clamped the car to the frame of the truck. I stopped in Chicago because I had had very little sleep & I was traveling alone that particular trip. I knew I just wasn't up to staying awake that long. I went into the train depot & found a serviceman standing in line to buy a ticket. I asked him if he would consider driving as far as Utah with me, driving part time, and get his ticket out of Salt Lake. He was happy because that saved him some money. I was so tired. I went back & got in the car & went to sleep. Something woke me up just as clear & distinct as could be. The car was on a 45 degree angle. One of the clamps had broken on one side & the car was leaning. I laid on the horn & got him stopped, & some people stopped & helped push us back so we were able to get the clamp started. We nursed it into the next town. They put it on a hoist & clamped it on again. I wasn't sleepy the rest of the trip! The Lord has been very good to protect me in that respect.

On our honeymoon at Yellowstone, we got in our swimming suits and went up to the water where it comes down cold yet there is a flow of hot and we'd get close to that so the water wasn't cold or hot and we'd slide down into it. It was fruit season so we had brought some pears and they were in the car. As we were getting ready to go swimming all these people outside were hollering & we thought "my word, what's the matter?". Our back window was rolled down & a bear was in there eating the pears. So we opened both doors so it could go out either way. Taken from "The History of Gloria Carter Young"
