If it is a stick, don't worry about it, but move as much weight as you  can 
into the front trunk. Battery? (Spare should already be there!), or into 
the  tow vehicle, to limit the amount of weight on the rear wheels. If a PG, 
the  issue is that trans fluid will be circulating through the transmission, 
as long  as the rear wheels are turning (because a pump is driven when they 
turn, a good  thing), but the only cooling of trans fluid is the regular 
spinning of the  torque converter, and the integral fan during normal operation 
- which it  will not be doing if the engine isn't running. Perhaps a midway 
stop for a long  lunch will allow the fluid to cool down for a while. Note 
that some people have  NEVER had a problem doing this. - Seth
