Brake issue was unrelated. Had a leak in the line that ran from the reservoir to a position on the inner fender well. We crimped the line before the leak with vice grips(2), filled the reservoir back up and drove it home with front brakes only. The fix held great and I think I only had to use the brake maybe 5 times from Vail back to the Ranch. The worst part of the drive was wiping the fogged up inside windshield with napkins every 1/2 mile or so from the tunnel back to the house....I was very happy to make it home that night without incident!!!!
