She's still got life in her

The other day our car officially hit 200,000 miles. We've been counting this down for a while, so when we saw that the time had come we had our camera handy. We've driven a lot in this car since we got married. We've made multiple trips to Spokane, countless trips to Albany, a trip to North Dakota, a trip to Orcas Island (via ferry ... the car doesn't go well under water), and a trip to Disneyland. When Melissa got the car three and a half years ago it had 130,000 miles on it. So, we've put 70,000 on it in that time. It's our only car so it has seen a lot of use, especially commuting to and from work each day. Now, that we've moved to campus though I think she'll see a lot less driving. Still, with all those miles on her she's still running well and I'd say she has another 200,000 in her (knocking on wood).

Congrats! It's a beautiful thing -knowing you spend so much of your life behind a steering wheel. :)
