Well, I’m sitting here in Scipio, UT taking sort of a mandatory break from the long drive. As I think I posted earlier I am moving back to Utah. And this was the weekend I decided to get out and do it since I had finally packed up all my stuff into the Jeep.
Yesterday the trip went very well even though I wasn’t able to get out of Phoenix until 3 PM. Which is about three hours later than I wanted to. But such goes life. I ended up staying in Las Vegas with my friend Mike who just recently moved there from Flagstaff, AZ. I got to see an amazing sunset in California with some ocotillo’s and some jagged mtn’s in the background.
I got on the road today (Sunday) at about 9 AM and started heading up to Salem to visit my grandma. I have been stopping quite a bit for short breaks since I’m really sick of driving. A couple miles back my jeep started getting hot. So I backed off and drove really slow up the remaining of the pass. I was hoping it would cool down on the downhill slope of the pass but that wasn’t the case. So I pulled into this Gas Station/Rest Stop to let it cool down for a half an hour or so. I sure as hell hope my jeep is going to be alright. I guess its overheating problem still exists. Though I think just driving around it would be just fine. It just doesn’t seem to like towing a trailer for long periods of time now 😦
