yes, 2000  I-80 COMPLETELY closed
across the ENTIRE state of Wyo.,  and then
chain law in effect for many roads and highways
even with some of the WOS with temps in 70's

we inched our way across, when certain sections opened,
shared a large room at holiday in Rock Springs with about
100 other people in same room.  and spent MANY hours
on highway with thousands of truckers,  backed up for MILES
and many empty gas stations

turbo fixed should bolt on by friday,  hoping to return soon,

yes I need advice, just not certain about what yet

learned then to take my best and newest vehicles to salt,
they hold up better, and provide better service in adverse
