    drivel

    I think there's entirely too much Revit/CAD content in this Out There subforum. So we need to get back to the drivel for which it was intended.

    My car turned 100,000 miles yesterday! They weren't all mine; I bought the car used. She was a lease turn-in and only had about 33,000 miles when I purchased her about 4 years ago. Typically, I drive about 22,000-24,000 miles/year. But this past year I've been able to cut the mileage to less than 11,000. Anyway... I absolutely love my car and I just wanted to share my milestone!

    Woot!

    Nice! I rolled 100k a few years ago on NYE. I meant to get a picture of it but I was on my way to the airport to pick someone up and was running late and totally forgot

    Oh yeah. I knew it was coming. So, I postponed a couple of errands this week so I could make sure I was in a safe and quiet place to document.

    Mine just hit 20k this week. Which was weird for me, since i always buy cars with about 50k on them. I intended to buy this one with 36k on it, but then a crazy deal came along for one that only had 11k on it. But its super weird to me. LOL.

    It has been a number of year ago now, but I roll 300,000 on a Toyota pickup truck I had. Power steering went out about 6-8 months after I rolled the 300,000 and it was going to cost more to fix than the truck was worth at that point so I let it go.

    Not all of those miles were mine either. I bought the truck from my brother in law for like $1,000 and drove it for 6 years? So that would probably be ~120,000 miles Seems like I got my money out of it.

    Congrats, Leanne!
    Sadly, it's not nearly as much fun to watch that happen as it used to be:

    I just ride a bicycle and they stole the little computer I had on there a while ago, so no idea how many kilometres I did on that.
    All I know it is not anything near the 100,000 miles.

    I ride a bike too, and some idiot stole it from me, so I so I bought another one and (the same **** I suppose) robbed me again from my building courtyard) , buuuuuuuuuuuuuut one day I was going to my work on my girlfriend's bike when I saw the very first stolen bicycle and I just sat there to catch the thief I put the padlock of my girlfriend's bike to tie the bike up and I just wait for the guy, 45 minutes after he shows up I put my hands on that guy and he just run like hell!
