PRICELESS



Was temporarily laid off and did the only financially resonsible thing. Loaded up the TC, left Florida and headed West. No plans, no time frame, no reservations...just a general idea of where we wanted to go.

Horseback riding in Cody...we holed up in Cody for three days. We had to limp to Billings, Montana to have the transmission replaced.

You may want to add some additional tranny cooling as this is the weak spot of the 7.3 with the auto tranny, especially with a newly rebuilt one.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Laid off: you see, hitting the road and getting a fresh perspective may have been the best thing for you [emoticon]

That was one great Trip Report!!!

Many thanks for taking the the huge amount of time to put it all together!

Great photos. Isn't Yellowstone just plain awesome? Quite the change for you from the flat land in Florida.

Nice trip, nice pictures and nice way to celebrate getting laid off, reality can always wait while you take a breather.

Great pictures, and great idea with the free time you have. I spent my entire college time up in the rockies, skiing, fishing, and enjoying life much as you have. I wonder how I ever got a degree with the amount of skiing, fishing, camping, hiking and fun there is to be had in that area.

Big Favor to ask: Can you shoot me a pic or description of your bike rack? I have a step such as yours, but need to find a way to incorporate a bike rack for 3 bikes.

Thx
