Default Biggus Needs Help with Truck Mechanic

Biggus is out at Konrad. He made it all the way there but blew his tranny getting the boat into the shop. He needs some help finding some place to fix the truck. If anyone knows of a good repair place out near were Konrad is (same place Troutly lives) please let us know.

He is staying out there while it gets worked on and documenting the entire process. Hopefully he will be able to get the truck fixed for reasonable money quick for the trip home.

I bet he comes home with a PSD. He has been talking about it for a while.

A buddy owns a tranny shop within a few miles of Hudson Wisconsin. It is just off the first 94 exit on the Minnesota side of the river.

The shop is Al's Automatic Transmission and trannys are their specialty. The number is 651.436.7620, have him ask for Jay.

Thanks Kohldog, I spoke to Jay this morning and he is going to take the truck in tomorrow morn.

Sure is beautiful out here! We ran the boat in the St Croix yesterday to get out baseline numbers. We are installing the drives today and we will be testing more tomorrow.

Kurt.....a long way from home
