If this is what it is, Any ideas why it would choose the first cool night ride to go out if adjustment?
My Ford Explorer that had the TB replaced stuck the first time for me on a cold night. I've had one Carb stick from icing up too. Cold humid air collected ice around the butterfly when it was below freezing, but once you stopped and let it set for just a minute it melted and freed up.

Starting on Page 3 of the post I linked there are photos of the Process and a pic of a home made special tool.
