Zebulon Montgomery Pike Trail to the sources of the Mississippi 1805 — 1806

Day 5: August 15th, 2002 Pittsburgh (Transdrive)

I haven’t heard from Transdrive until noon. Therefore I decide to call them and see where they are. They promised to look at my car yesterday evening or latest this morning. He tells me that they have found the issue: I was just lacking transmission oil! But there was missing a lot, almost 3 quarts below!

But they were not able to locate where I have lost this much oil. There is something to see at my pan, but not as much to justify for the amount I was missing. He suggests that they will keep the car until Friday. If they are not able to figure something out I should pick up my car and have an eye on the oil level. This sounds reasonably and I will wait another day.

I spend the rest of the day with checking emails and reading about my trail. My bed time is 11pm as almost usual.
