You would have blown us out of the water!

Also, a minor correction on that award... it's more like 29,450 per year. 40,500 miles since April 24, 2012.

After the trip back home, it's sitting at 41,300 miles, which bumps the average up to 30,000 per year.

Russ and Marisa should get HUGE props. They did a HUGE road trip of over 4500 miles to get to fest. The overall distance from home was longer for us by only about 200 miles. I wish two awards had been made. They deserve one too!

Sprockette should've entered her car as she would've won an award. I told her you can't win anything if you don't enter...

Congrats on both awards!

Well, a bit...

This morning when I fueled up I was at 96,060 miles and I purchased the car on 9/27/2011 so that works out to 709 days and 135 miles/day. Take the miles/day * 365 gives a yearly mileage of 49,275 - which is almost right on the 50,000 miles I tell everyone I drive in a year.
