On The Road Again

Four days after losing our transmission, we are back on the road and heading southwest towards what we hope will be warmer temperatures. 

With any luck, we'll make it to New Orleans tonight, and San Diego Friday evening. 

I have some Etchells sailing to do on Sunday!

Montgomery, AL

Well, the car should be ready, tomorrow, so it looks like we will be missing my brother and wonderful sister-in-law in Austin. Waaaa! The bright side is that we may be able to get to San Diego faster. We will see!

Transmission Failure

Today's plan was to drive from Destin, Fl toy sisters house in Florence, Al. 

That was the plan. However, the reality is that 20 miles after crossing the Alabama border, our transmission made a very loud thumping noise and suddenly I found myself in "neutral"!!  Not good. 

D and 3 are dead but I still can limp along in 1st 2nd or reverse. 

We made it 6 miles to a small town called Andalucia and a Chrysler dealership. 

Diagnosis pending. Will update.
