For 50  years, a man known as the “San Diego Highwayman”, Tomas Weller, has been driving the highways around Sad Diego looking for stranded people to help.

When he was 16, he ended up stranded in a ditch during a blizzard, when a good samaritan stopped and helped him, asking only that he “pay it forward” one day. Ever since, Mr. Weller has done that, helping thousands of stranded motorists. He gives them a business card that says “You don’t owe me anything. I’ve been there too. Someone once helped me out, just the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here’s what you do: don’t let the chain of love end with you.”

Here is his story…
