Several dozen loose pieces of metal suddenly running amok inside the transmission tore up everything else.
Our hometime begins on the 9th and my co-driver & his wife have reservations in Vegas on the 10th. In order to get us home on time we picked up a rental car at the Missoula International Airport and drove it to Idaho Falls. We're at the Best Western right now. In the morning we are switching to a different rental car (long story) and driving to Flagstaff, AZ. (all paid for by CRST) There we pick up a CRST truck that has been sitting at the Freightliner dealer. Monday morning we pick up a load in Superior, AZ and take it to Fontana, CA. Then we go home!
I'll still be able to make my niece Rebekah's first birthday party on the 15th.
