For a couple days now, I've been watching the odometer in my truck.

I wanted to see it roll past 200,000km.

I missed it by 3km.

I instantly felt like the Cockatoo.

I'm over it now.

Oh man Brian! Nothing like large amounts of salt in the wound. :(

 

But I'm glad for you being able to catch the moment.

I got 123,321 miles last year when I got home from work. 100,000 on the truck late this year probably. I'll finally replace the brakes at that point. Maybe.

My brother hit 350,000 on his '02 1/2 ton chebby pickup this weekend.  28 miles later the tranny went BANG and that was all she wrote.

:(

That's programmed in like a maintenance reminder.

I would be able to watch the gas gauge dropping in my 98 GMC k2500 at 80MPH, assuming the gas gauge worked. I rolled the odometer over 400,000 km last year (about 240,000 miles), did not miss it, I was southbound on Honey Harbour road, just before I hit Hwy 400 on my way home from work. I am at about 417,000 now.
