I stopped, cussed, let it cool some, vented through the top hose bleed screw, depressurized and topped up (almost none needed). Drove home (30 miles) with everything looking normal again (including some hill climbs and other areas making the motor work hard for a living).
No loss of water, no steam, no water in oil, no oil in water. I decided it must be an intermittent sticking thermostat (have two on order). Could it be a water pump with the impeller spinning on the shaft? Have one of those on order too.
