Default Strange clunk

Driving from Tulsa to Dallas yesterday and I was slowing down as I entered a town (Speedtrap). All of the sudden there is a "Clunk" that I heard and felt. When I got to the stoplight I moved the shifter 1st through Park and it made no change. For the next 30 miles or so it seemed the truck was stuck in 3rd regardless of speed. Finally had to stop to pee (I was afraid of getting stranded) and turned the truck off and put in park. When I came back out it was fine.

Any ideas?

If it was me, might bring to the dealer and see if they can find any thing in the computer memory. Don't know if they can read any thing from the TCU, but some where, something had a brain fart. Also, check trans fluid level.
