My wife and 3 youngest kids and I are just completing our Lake Powell trip. Headed north from Vegas to Reno, the truck started showing signs of running poorly, it was surging occasionally. In Tonopah, I checked the transmission fluid, thinking something was slipping, but thing looked fine. It started really running rough around Fallon and we managed to baby it to our hotel in Reno at 1 am. I sent IKIC and DRHORSEPOWER messages last night at around 1 am.
When I woke up at 7:30 am IKIC had an appointment set up at a shop. DR also told me IKIC had something lined up for me. I took the truck in at 8:00 am and found one of the injectors was failing. It is now being repaired and they estimate it should be ready about noon. Thanks a bunch guys!!
Good folks on here more than willing to help a guy out even if they have never met him or her! Great job guys!!!

This group of people on here really are a great bunch. Way to go IKIC and DR!
Best forum on the internetz, thanks to guys like IKIC, Dr horsepower, and many others.
Good deal guys.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
That's pretty cool. It's nice to hear stories like that these days.
Way to go guys!!! Good people doing good things! Good to hear that it's working out for you U.H., I hope your trip was great otherwise.
The trip was awesome! A bit slower fishing than we thought…18 catfish at Snake River and 24 striped bass at Lake Powell, but overall a super trip. Three fishing days at Snake River, hiking through Bryce Canyon, 3 fishing/swimming days at Lake Powell, a stop at Mule Crazy headquarters to talk hunting with Ryan Hatch, two days of good food and sleeping in in Vegas. Ryan said that last year in the same timing they got 700+ stripers in a few days, but the bite has been very spotty this year. I think we did better that pretty much anyone we saw on stripers and catfish, so we feel blessed.
If all goes well on the repair, we have two days at Summer Lake Hot Springs and jackrabbit hunting in the evenings, my 50th birthday tomorrow with steaks, gravy and pancakes for breakfast and and a striped bass fish fry for dinner, then Sunday steaks at Cowboy Dinner Tree in Silver Lake Oregon on the drive home

I would love to meet those 2 guys someday, not quite like you did though UH! It's nice to know they are as genuine as I believed them to be.
Happy 50th UH, hope many more to come!
