Rolling to 100K

Well, it finally happened. My CR-V odometer rolled over to 100,000 miles as I travelled to Kona to shoot some high surf.

Actually my odometer didn’t ‘roll’ over to 100,000 miles and I almost didn’t realize that. These days odometers are digital so the numbers don’t roll-over like a slot machine tumber from 99,999 to 100,000.

I once got a photo of my car with the tumblers between the two numbers and I thought I could do that then I remembered this is a digital world, not analog.

So I stopped the car and got a photo of the odometer at 99999.

Then again a mile later.

100K miles

Then hopped out and got a pano with the iPhone of where I was mauka of the Kona-Kohala coastline.

Highway 190

The car has held up really well, need some new brake pads soon but otherwise a great car.

  1. THose big numbers are fun, they make you realize just how much of your life is spent in that seat. 100,000miles is 2500 hours at 40mph, a guess at the average speed of those miles. This would take 104 days of non-stop driving to do.

    My OD is well past 176,000, I figure another 74,000 and I will have made it to the Moon.

  2. With the combined mileage of my wife's and my vehicle (292,000 and 202,000 miles, respectively) we recently returned from Earth's favorite satellite. What a trip!

  4. Congrats on making 100k mileage… I have been somewhat conservative as my 2001 Mazada Tribute only has 53,000. I sure hope to reach that 200k someday.

    Later…
