The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

90000


Approaching Louisville Kentucky the Little House on the Highway rolled over 90,000 miles.

No, the speedometer rolled over, not us.

  2. As it can go to 999999 you have done just 9% of its capacity. Still some traveling to do then.

  3. I was worried to see that first picture, you were so excited you turned the wheel I thought! A milestone I suppose which you celebrated with Sinbad.

  5. You'll probably hit the 100 K before you get home, John. But as they told me over and over again when I was shopping for a used diesel truck . . . "100,000 is just barely broken in."

  6. Yeah, looks like in that first photo you were actually "rolling over"… Good work with the 90K. I've got 219K on my '07 Prius. Oh yeah, when I was a kid I remember the exciting day when our '47 Pontiac rolled over 100K. Big event for me. The anticipation was high and the event was spectacular. 00000.0 miles--just like a brand new car. Imagine my letdown when we went to pick up our new '61 Bell Aire--it already had 22 miles on it and I always wondered who had been tooling around in OUR car before we picked it up. Oh yeah--price of that new Chevy in 1961 was $2200. Compared to the '47 Pointiac it was piece of crap.
