Yes it was, we found this shop via Google, the only shop in 100 miles that had brake pads. We put those on last night in the parking lot thinking that was the problem. The sound got worse so we grabbed a room for the night here and got to the dealer before they opened.
well, at least you were able to make it to a shop. I bet there are some org members in the area that would have helped you out if needed. Hope the trip goes better from here on out. tell semi i said hi. if the wife is with you tell her i said hi as well.
this happend to me as i got ready to head to work....ending up missing a day of work and tomorrow is Haya's in the Hills and boy was i fretting..as local shop did not have the "pre-formed" radiator hose and nobody had the heat shield that burned through.
