Running Through The Vineyard
Trevor grew up spending a great deal of time running through the vineyard. He was born blind, but that did not slow him down.
The vineyard, in the Verde River valley in Arizona, was perfect for growing the grapes. The thirty degree temperature differential between day and night is what caused the grapes to thrive.
One day Trevor went with his father to check on a part of the vineyard. It was late in the day and they were deep into the vineyard when his father fell and passed out.
Trevor knew his father needed medical attention and it was getting colder by the minute, so he had to act fast.
He knew by the odor of the grapes when he passed a certain section. Some sections were closer to harvest than others. He counted the sections as he crossed and ran with his hands outstretched to the side to guide him.
When the medic’s arrived he was able to lead them to his father. They were astounded at his ability to track his father so quickly and it help save his father’s life.
