Sounds like a normal trip to me
When I went down to get my Formula on Long Island I got up at 4:00am. Hit the road at 4:30. I was having trouble with my truck and it was in the shop so I asked a buddy to barrow his truck. We headed out and made it to Long Island with out a issue. I get there and there are no chains on the trailer, and the lights don't work. So we hop in the truck and get some chain and wire to fix the lights. Finally a couple hours later we are on the road. I am excited as all get out and the delay has not yet fazed me. We go over the throngs neck (I think that is what it was) bridge and then into rush hour traffic. All of the sudden it is like a bomb goes off under the truck. The thing back fired so bad it was rediculous. It looses power but is still barely able to pull the boat. I look at my surroundings and decided that there is NO WAY I was going to stop there. I figured even if I am only going 10 mph I will tow it to CT that way!!! So litterally at btwn 10 and 30 miles per hour (depending on up or downhill) we head to CT. At the first rest area I pull in. I call my bro and ask him if he can drive down with my truck. NO WAY he tells me (first time he has ever let me down) No one else could get a truck to me either. I also can not get in touch with the owner. Had I been able to I would have known that it was just a fouled plug. Needless to say it died on us 4 times on the way home and we pulled back into the house at 3 am the fallowing morning. What should have taken about 10 hours took us 23!!!!
Next day I pulled it to the shop and just as I was pulling it in a wheel bearing fell apart.
