Project Road Warrior takes on Rally North America, Day 2
Team Mustang Girls and Project Road Warrior take on Rally North America, Day 2
Day 2 of Rally North America started off in Big Sky, Montana. We had the pleasure of staying of The Lodge at Big Sky the night before, and I definitely recommend the place. Not only can you walk to everything from the hotel but they also have sturdy luggage carts for riding down the entrance hill! After having a little too much fun the night before we were off to a late start and decided to take it easy for the day and hang out with Team America and their 2008 GT500 as we cruised to Great Falls, Montana.
Lucky for us my inner 14 year-old boy came out when I saw a funny sign for Adam & Eve Teasers. We busted a U-turn to get a funny picture in front of the sign and the next thing I knew the car was smoking. As I popped the hood the overflow tube started spraying around like a loose fire hose. After waiting for things to cool down a bit the search for the problem began. The fan wasn't kicking on and while we were taking our entertaining photo the car overheated. At least we weren't on the side of the highway. After checking all the fuses and getting the test light out we were able to figure out the ground to the fan switch relay wiggled loose. We tightened it up and were back on the road in no time with the help of Team America.
The day went on and the gorgeous scenery continued. As the other teams on the rally hit up the check points we decided to just head in the direction of the hotel and stop at anything that looked fun including the Mustang Motel in Townsend, MT and the Big Bull Bar and Grill in Winston, MT, where we got to try their famous Blue Balls. After filling up on balls we finished up the day in Great Falls. Another day in the books!
