Ugg lost my transmission

On my annual journey to Myrtle Beach, SC I lost the transmission in the van.  It happened about 30 miles north of Columbia, SC.  While in the passing lane accelerating all of a sudden there was no power and the tachometer spiked into the red.  Now unable to pass the line of cars in the right lane we made our way to the shoulder of the highway.

From the shoulder of the highway we were able to secure a tow and a car rental reservation.  The van was towed the 30 miles to a transmission shop in Columbia and the tow truck driver was kind enough to drop us off at the airport so we could pickup the rental car.  So we drove back to the transmission shop to retrieve our luggage.

We drove the rest of the way to Myrtle Beach that same day.  Between the transmission repair, the tow, and the car rental my credit card got quite the workout.
