I Drove up to Kilgore Sunday afternoon to explore some abandoned houses. I was northwest of the store near the timber line when my truck died. I hiked a mile to the main road, a gravel road that goes to the corner where the Kilgore Store is located and managed to wave down a hunter heading into the hills. He gave me a jump and all was well. He drove off and I happily drove back to the main road. After turning left onto the road, the engine stopped again. I was a about 2 miles from the store and began walking. when I arrived at the store, I was encouraged to find it still open. I found a good natured cowboy unwinding at the close of the day. He towed me to the store and I took a few photos of him and the store owner. AAA saved the day! The tow truck came from Ririe and I was home by 9:30.
