Man that is going to be one time consuming trip, I assume the tranny has other problems so don't expect the thing to hold together very long, 200 miles is a long way to go with a failing transmission and your speed is limited to around 30 mph depending on the gear ratios. Sounds just plain scary to me.

This has bad idea written all over it. You'll just end up in a remote little town paying a premium for tows and repairs while forced to layover.
