    I bet its the presser change, I have never driven that route, but I remember driving from Texas to norther New Mexico and colorado and your ears popping from elevation, From that distance there is bound to be highs and lows in elevation which will change the pressure against the jars, and it will release and let bacteria grow....just a guess though.

    Possibly you failed to seal the jars completely?

    Thanks Angel that is what I was thinking too.

    Dave this is what my uncle thought too. When he tried to bring his home canned tomatoes to Wyoming from Oregon he experienced the same thing.
