Whatever floats your boat...

I was somewhere in Kansas. 200,000 more to go.

Congratulations, my friend. 100,000 miles per hour is very impressive. Switch to high test and you may overcome the earth's gravity and achieve orbit.

I just love love love that you filmed this! Ah, life is good...

@ Geoff: My usual driving speed is more like 100,000 milimeters per hour. Just ask Pyper.

@ Marie: I can't believe that I had the presence of mind to notice it and do it. My snapshot camera happened to be on the car seat next to me and it has a little video feature, so I grabbed it and perched it on my steering wheel. The song I was listening to at the time was Four Strong Winds (I know, I know--Canadian national anthem), and the very last note of it coincided with the flip of the zeroes. Terrible sound in the video though.

Ah, Four Strong Winds - perfection...! Alas... these days it's only the alternate national anthem to old Canadians like me. ;-)

Love it. Mine just rolled over to 90,000,...and then it got hit in the parking lot,....aGAIN ! That's 3 times in 4 months and 2 of those times I was no where near it,...just got it out of the shop a month ago. My husband calls it The Metal Magnet now.

What happened?  Who's car is this?  Can't be NJ. No way - NJ wouldn't be caught dead driving over 55mph. 


ARKIAN Captain.......NJ channel has been hacked.  Look into it please :0)

@ Blanche: AGAIN?! Aw man. I think you need something like a spiked collar wrapped all around that car.


@ Ruth: I know. It's one of those monumental life events: first day of school, losing virginity, graduation, marriage, 100,000 miles.


@ Pyper: Yup. My attention was on the odometer instead of the speedometer, and my foot got a little heavy on the gas. When I realized my infraction, I drove 30 MPH for the rest of my trip to compensate for my sin.

Dang!  To let her fly like that as the ol' gal turns 100K...that's respect.  ;o)

@ Syd: It's as close to flying as I ever get behind the wheel. Usually the bicyclists are waving to me as they pass.
