Default Mileage Culture Award challenge

Well, Mdub707 was declared the winner for our winter challenge... now I'll throw out a shorter one.

This one is for $50... and this will end on midnight (PST), May 31st.

BFT will award $50 to whoever puts the most WVO miles on their truck between NOW and the end of May.

I don't want to get too much into nitty-gritty minutiae... I like to keep it simple and with the "honesty is the best policy" sort of mentality.... and I'm not going to get into "D2 miles for warm-up vs. true WVO miles...."

Basically it boils down to this... to ENTER you need to post up a pic of your current ODOMETER... so we all can witness a starting number. Post the pics on this thread so that it can be tracked...

Then, as the next 45+ days progress, feel free to put up updates of your ODOMETER to help show just how superior you are and how your ass has greater quantities of road iron than your friends.... again, on this thread.

Put up your last ODOMETER pic before midnight (PST), May 31st... and whoever has the most miles... wins.

Again... let's keep it simple... honest challenge, honest reporting.

If we have two converted Vegistroke vehicles, do both of them count? (I know Clay is in the same boat).

Excelent question... I drive the 6.0 normally to put milage on the beta scorpion pump but hopefully before the end of may it will be parked with the cab in the air getting some major engine mods done and it my easily be there more than a week. This would kill my award chances as I would have to be driving the 6.4.
But in reality I'm not to worried about winnng. Are admins and moderators even eligible?
seems I was given a coupon code already and I lost it.

We'll let common sense dictate whether or not "more than one truck" will work for the challenge.

Since I maintain the right to throw out any of these entries anyway, (it's in the rules... somewhere in the super-small font) I can gauge just how true the submissions are.

If your first odometer snapshot is from a Ford with 100,000 miles on it... and your second pic is from a 1981 Toyota Corolla as your "second vehicle"... and then you try to somehow sneak in a picture of a metro bus ... well, then....

Well there's only 2 of us that I know of who own 2 vegistrokes and I think it's safe to say you can trust us both.

Not one pic of an odometer yet? I'm not planning any trips but I may have to get mine up and win by default.

I was thinking the same thing... (well, not the "Snake wins by default" part, but certainly the "all this talk, but no pics" part).
