As you can see above, today I crossed the two hundred, eighty thousand mile mark in Roxy. Or, another way to say it is I have driven my 2003 MINI Cooper around the planet 11.2 times, depending on who’s nerd math you are using. And I’ve done it in 10 years. Everything is working like it should and I have nothing new to report. Still have a few items on my "list" that need to be taken care of, but it’s a busy month so they will have to wait.

Coming up next I do have a few items to install that were donated to the cause. A replacement rear wiper motor, because, unlike many of you, I like to see where I have been when it is raining. The items donated were a set of headlights. Newer than what I have currently and a very long way from turning yellow. Yes, even after the hardcore polishing my lights are starting to haze over again. Just as soon as the temperatures drop I’m going to be tackling both of those.

Something cool is brewing in my head about what I’m going to do to celebrate Roxy turning 300k next year. I think you guys will like it. Stay tuned.

  1. The big question is, what happens after Roxy reaches 300K? Does she keep going or does she get replaced?

    1. Replaced? I seriously doubt that. Joined would be more accurate. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t survive the fallout if she was outright replaced. I’m going to have her for quite some time.
