Here I sit in a hotel romm in Glenwood Springs Colorado.
Did NOT make it home, yesterday.
Driving along, minding my own business...
In Glenwood Canyon, a restricted road, with NO shoulder. We broke down. The jeep just stopped.
The Cat converter was red hot and everything, including the drive shaft and trans case, was SMOKING from heat. How the jeep didn`t catch fire was devine intervention. Sticking out in trafic, we could do nothing.
So we call for help(the cell phones do not work in the canyon, btw), the state has call boxes for this reason. The state came out and towed us to a rest stop, where the cells work.
We call a tow truck. This was at 9 last night. Get to the hotel so late there is NO place to eat. We eat at the come and Go ...YUM!
I, as I type this do not know what is wrong with the heap.
I will keep you guys in the loop.
The jeep is at a garage this morning, and we are at a Ramada inn
