Sorry to hear it. You must've been off the highway by the time Markofsky and I blasted through Grand Junction about 6:00 p.m.

Bummer

I hope we didn't miss seeing you broken down...We left Moab right about 10am so we were probably just ahead of you and somewhere behind Romer. I saw a few folks on the way back....

Rompies blasted by us right just before I70 of Hwy 191 and we quickly lost sight of him on I70...Passed the BJ60 (NGIRI license plate) before the border...Passed Hatfield at the bottom (West side) of Vail Pass and then caught up with the Morgan family on the opposite side of Vail Pass. We cheated though and the FIL met us in Eagle with his Dodge and drug the popup back to their place for us - Only used a 1/2 tank of gas from Glenwood Springs to home. Even pulling the popup he left us in the dust going up the hills

Doh!

Sorry about the break down Chris. I hope you get it squared away and it's not anything too major.

Better to have happened on I-70 than Steel Bender which I suspect was the point of damage, suspecting t-case myself.

Just talked to Hugh and should know before very long whether I'm renting a car or driving the 62 home today.

Jeff, sorry about that. I did not see the sign to merge, behind the big truck, so all of a sudden we were down to one lane. Was hoping you would catch me so I could say sorry in person. I was in a hurry to get back so I could make it to my hockey game, play offs you know

No worries Tom...Scared the bejeezers out of the though. As for catching you...Not a chance. Maybe without the popup attached.

We made it home this evening in a Ford Focus.

Looks like the old A440F has seen it's last mile and seized. I'm waiting for Hugh to confirm for certain but it's not looking good. He has a couple replacements on hand but after discussing it Barb and I decided a 5 speed would be a better replacement. Anyone want to buy a pig?
