I was back on the road and cruising at nearly illegal highway speeds later the following day and we made it north all the way to southwest Wyoming when I notice a small leak coming from the speedometer cable on the transfer case while refueling. It was a little loose so I tightened it and got on the road. Less than 5 miles later the truck made a small pop and coasted to the side of the road. It wouldn't move and made a bad grinding noise. Lucky for me, invited readers Patrick Deming and Jeff Mello were coming down the same highway and were able to fit my Army Truck on their trailer for the ride to Rapid City, South Dakota.
