Yesterday on the way home from work our 2003 Toyota Tundra 4x4 passed 100,000 miles. I didn’t have a camera with me at the time so I took this photo of the odometer as soon as I got home. What I’m proudest about is not really the truck but all the places that we have gone, as a family in the truck.
Here is a list of some of the places this truck has taken us:
Amish country PA, Arches NP, Badlands NP, Bryce Canyon NP, Canyonlands NP, Carlsbad Caverns NM, Colonial Williamsburg, Devil’s Tower WY, Dinosaur NM, Disney World FL, Four corners, Grand Canyon NP, Grand Teton NP, Kirtland OH, Lake Powell, Looking Glass NC, Moab UT, Monticello, Mt Rushmore, Nauvoo IL, New York City, Newport Beach OR, Niagara Falls Ontario, Painted Desert NP, Palmyra NY, Petrified Forest NP, Philadelphia PA, Poison Spider Mesa, Roswell NM, Sand Rock AL, Shenandoah NP, Smoky Mountain NP, Temple Square, Tennessee Aquarium, The Corn Palace, Turner Field, VLA National Radio Astronomy Observatory, Yellowstone NP, and many, many more.
All of this does not take into account the many trips to family birthday parties, Family home evenings, weddings, climbing trips with the kids, scout campouts, soccer games, ballet recitals, bowling, trips to granny’s, etc, etc, etc.
So to our little grey truck I simply say, “Thank you for all the memories that you helped us to create. I look forward to blogging about your 200,000th mile in a few more years.”
