Way back on June 13, 2002, I posted that my car was at 'almost 40,000 miles'. Today it turned 58,000 miles. This means that in less than a year, I've gone about 18,000 miles or so. The big jump in miles has to be the new job; previously, in the 27 months I'd owned the car, I'd gone about 40,000 miles.
Okay, silly me. Previously I'd gone slightly less than 1500 miles a month; now, it's exactly 1500 miles a month. Duh. I'll shut up now.
I am so smrt. The first year I had the car I drove to Richmond a lot, because that's where Karen was in school. Then she moved up here, and my average miles went down. Now I'm driving 66 miles a day round-trip to work, which brings the average back up. I started my new job in November; I suspect my December-December average will be up compared to the previous average.
still further update
Hmm...back on January 27th my car turned 48,000 miles. That means I'm doing 10K miles in a little more than 5 months. I should hit 68,000 miles by the end of the year, then.
