« I Love A Happy Ending »

Trucky rolls 200,000 on the last day of 2006It is late afternoon on the 31st of December 2006. I will not be driving anymore this evening. Or this year, it appears, as long as my non-planned NYE festivities appear to permit. But that isn't the big news. Today my truck rolled 200,000 miles while out doing some errand running. And that makes me proud. I've had it for about 120,000 of those miles, or since September 17, 1996. I guess that now makes a 12,000/miles a year average. Yow. But I assure you, they were "front loaded" miles. I did most of my heavy driving back before 2002 or so when economics pressed me into more sensible driving and ultimately the oil-awareness activist in me began to be quite intentional about driving habits. So, after all these miles, me and the truck are still a team. I have to say it still remains the best purchase I ever made. I try to wash it once a year whether it needs it or not!

Trucky rolls 200,006 at the end of 2006!And then in that extra special category, while finishing my errands today, at the very end of 2006, the odometer read, as I parked it, 200,006. And they lived happily ever after.
