Also just 6 cylinders and small, 2.7L
but it is turbo charged
Its rated to pull 7k. I estimate I'm towing about 4.2k so I should be fine



You must have a Ford F-150 turbo V6 2.7 engine. Your transmission having trouble in the mountains is probably because you don't have a towing transmission, one that was built to tow vehicles all the time like you do. A towing transmission is geared lower for going up and down mountains easier. The gas mileage is worse, but it beats the expense of replacing the transmission. Which you're likely to do sooner rather than later.

Going to hit Lake Tahoe?


The REAL adventures of terapined

Not sure.
Just finished setting up the RV, laundry and ate.
Time to unwind and relax
Since I just drove and towed
I'm probably gonna see what TripAdvisor has for best attractions in Reno and do that.
I'll save drives outside of reno fo the next few days.
Got a week here.

Bac bac lol

If it was me I would take the truck to a Ford dealership to have the transmission checked. It probably did not have a towing package when it was bought new so it just has a regular transmission that is not geared for towing vehicles for long distances. You can tow your boat to the lake with it but it's not built for driving around the country towing a couple tons of weight behind you. When it goes you will be stuck in the worst position possible because that's the way it always works.

If you've got a week, then definitely spend at least one of those days in Tahoe. It's only an hour from Reno, so you could just do a day trip or two. If you do go, take the Mt. Rose highway and go down through Incline Village. That drive from Incline to Stateline is gorgeous.

If you are a hiker, check out the Skunk Harbor trail. If you are a beach goer, I would recommend Pope Beach (probably too cold for a swim this time of year).

The REAL adventures of terapined

Thanks a lot
I'm definitely gonna check that out
Probably do that this weekend
Tomorrow is mapped out
The Riverwalk district looks perfect for what I like to do 1st full day in town
I love just walking around all the unique downtowns in every city and this looks pretty unique
and of course the massive auto museum right there.
Any casinos in the area, will see if new player promotion is worth it
Loving life
Loving landing in a city I have never visited in my life.
Life is good
Gonna go for a bike ride and check out this beautiful neighborhood
I only stay at the high end places, rigs have to be less then 10 years old.
I really do it for safety rather then the facility.

I guess... if you have a busy day and can't find the time, so be it. If you asked me to provide a link to something I knew about, I would do it for you.

I was wondering that if the same people keep winning over and over it was more likely than not they were actually Advantage and not some voodoo system players, streak players, or whatever you want to call them. I was thinking, perhaps they were teaming up to help them gain that advantage since that would be easier to do that in something like Baccarat. It would be something worth looking into.


So, what little I was able to find, for instance, the WPT crystal seemed to be the biggest(one guy won over 12 million). there were not the same people winning over and over. I can't seem to find any information on the same people winning over and over bigger tournaments. No doubt, someone has won multiple times but what you were suggesting I can't seem to find that information even when looking at them one by one.


BTW, I keep banging multiple hot supermodels, if you dont believe me...look it up on the internet. I won't do your leg work for you, so don't ask, but it's there, I assure you. 🙄

It's not that nobody believes you...it's that nobody cares.

Wise up.

Quoting this to make sure it is seen by OP.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
