Odometer Musings

The Red Dragon (thanks for the name, Bob) has turned 185k! I must be slowing down.  Or perhaps I listened to Drea, because it took 198 days this time. 15k to the big 200!

This time, it only took 177 days to drive 15,000 miles. That’s an average of 84 miles a day.

Good stuff.

A Riddle

I have a riddle for you.

How do you drive 540 miles, over the course of three days, and not really go anywhere?

540 Miles.

Possible 540 Mile Round Trips from Providence, RI

  • Sunday River Resort, ME (450 miles)
  • Cooperstown, NY (462 miles)
  • Newport, VT – right by the Canadian border (520 miles)
  • Burlington, VT  (530 miles)
  • Philadelphia, PA  (540 miles)
  • Bangor, ME (568 miles)

Possible Destinations within approximately 540 Miles – One Way

  • Montreal (370 miles)
  • Caribou, ME (455 miles)
  • Niagara Falls (460 miles)
  • Toronto, Canada (544 miles)
  • Pittsburgh, PA (565 miles)
  • Morgantown, WV (560 miles)

Answer: Drive back and forth from Providence to Rockport Three times in one weekend.

Truth be told, every mile was worth it because each one was for my children.  (I’ll do a weekend re-cap soon.)  But, still… that was a shit ton of driving without really going anywhere!

200 days & 15,000 miles ago, I posted this. In those 200 days I have averaged 75 miles a day. Funny, given that I’ve been living 5 miles from where I work. Dating, kids, & roadtrips, though. It’s been a good 15k.

Only 45,000 miles to go, to reach my 200k goal on this great vehicle.
