Yup Zooman has you all smoked.

Could there be a "sleeper" veg burner out there with more miles than you guys that has never needed ya'lls expertise or parts, or grease etc?

100% certain the answer is yes. Ive met people who have NEVER posted anywhere who could easily have more miles than any of us!

Will hit 493,000 possibly tomorrow. Flying out to Atlanta to run a marathon on Sunday and will be back home Monday. Nothing new to report except for lots of overtime, hence the reason for racking up a lot of miles the past few weeks.

Rolled 494,000 on the way to work tonight. Since the last 1000 miles, I ran a marathon in Atlanta ( 4:30:33 time, was shooting for under 4:30, but Atlanta is a hilly mo fo).
Also, put new rear rotors and pads on. O'Reilly can go F.O. and it will be a cold day in hell before I buy another part from them. Had lifetime warranty on the pads. They already refused to honor the front ones last year when I went to swap them out due to wear. So I thought since they had a different manager they would swap the rears out since I had the lifetime warranty. I was told they won't swap out due to normal wear, only on manufacturer's defects. I told them that was not I was told when I originally bought them several years ago. They refused to budge, called their corporate office and got the same line.
Went to Advanced Auto and bought the lifetime Wagner pads and was told if I change the pads out every two years they would warranty them for life. So it will be interesting to see what they do in a few years when I pull the pads for a swap.
That's about it, it's getting warmer and I'm getting more veggie miles between diesel fill ups and everything still runs great since I removed the submarine heat exchanger a few months ago.

Got there yesterday while running errands. Made a quick trip to San Antonio to throw a birthday party for my brother in law. He is in a residential facility that cares for closed head injury people. We had a great time as did my friend who I brought along.
Susan is stuck on night shifts for a while. A guy in her loading dept. was coupling up rail cars and apparently wasn't following SOP and ended up losing his leg. So the complex wanted supervision out there on nights for awhile to basically babysit while loading and switching rail cars. So it has been a rough week for her.
Got an offer on the compound, so hopefully retirement and the move to Utah is finally looking like a possibility.
Onward to 497000!!!!
Be careful at work and stay focused y'all.

Off work for 2 weeks while we get the compound really ready to sell. Flew a friend in from Atlanta for a month to help with chores. got an offer last week on it and they are trying to work out the details concerning the ag exempt we have on it. Went to Louisiana yesterday to gamble and rolled past the 497,000 mile mark. Almost halfway through the refurb of the 1954 pitch and bat pinball game I'm doing. 3000 more to go!!!!

Actually I'm nearing 499,000 miles. Somehow I hit the 498,000 mark before I knew it. I put 700 miles on my truck this weekend running several of our mini exotics to Wells, Texas and then making a trip to the casinos yesterday. i'll prolly hit 499, 000 Thursday and then the truck will be rested for a week.
