I am glad your plane still made it unharmed. I lucked out in that I had a really knowledgeable and careful tow truck driver, and the route to the airport allowed us to avoid freeways. He had 3 inch wide straps and put them in a crisscross pattern so that the plane was locked down in all axis.

I had been stressing over this for months but the actual event was a giant nothing-burger. Then biggest hassle was getting it out of the garage (2 inches too narrow).
