Well made it to white horse. Drove abut 1000 Km yesterday, 1600 today. Roof rack broke the rain gutter! a combination of too much weight located over the passenger side only, bad design on my part(nathan's stuff it the S$$$!!!!) and several big bumps that I didn't see in the dark. Tried to mcgyver it with a battery, jumper cables and a loony. Actually got it to arc but it wasn't enough. Slept in the open, very beautiful night. I woke up around 4am due to cold. Let me preface that with the bag I'm sleeping in is rated to 0 and ive been in it down to -5 and been fine. the bag was partially wet so that affected it a little. Oh well, I got up and started driving. car was running great until a nasty, bumpy and twisty section. I was getting around 7 MPG, when I'd stop for gas the engine would diesel for several seconds. It would then run hot for several minutes when I started driving again. Hopefully a full nights rest will do it good. Looking to arive in FBX tomorrow afternoon.

Big thanks to Kevin Khun for allowing me to crash on his couch, and for all the phone calls he made in vain looking for my alternator. Another big thanks to Kevin from RMLC for letting us take his alternator.

Sean

That's awesome! Props for even trying it. Is it bad that I remember that episode?
