Out of Gas: December 6, 2011: submitted by Boardman Rest Area Supervisor Joleen Odens
The photo to the left shows Jim Pettyjohn, OTE’s back-up Boardman rest area supervisor. On Jim’s third day on the job, he was approached by a motorist at around 8 a.m. looking for the nearest gas station. The driver had been driving from Portland on his way to North Dakota hauling a Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) trailer. The driver was worried he would not make it to the next gas station and was willing to buy the gas. Jim explained OTE’s policy for providing a small amount of gas, free of charge, so that stranded motorists can make it to the next available gas station. The FEMA driver thanked Jim and was back on the road within minutes.
