A reminiscing update

I'm bored, so I'm burning through my old posts in my calendar to see what I think is memorable. I'll post again when I finish the updates.

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.

Piker. I always drive over 20k a year.

I used to drive around 25K per year. Then life got simpler. And so it goes, I guess. I'm currently enjoying a long commute, with the exception of the 'enjoying' bit.

Long Drives
Tell me about it.

I drove 300 miles every other weekend to Jo's parents' house for two years.

Now I drive 100 miles round trip to work every day. I bought my current car in mid-August 2000 with 10K miles. In just less than 3 years I've racked up an additional 75k.

Now, kids...no fighting, no biting. Don't make me turn this car around!
