100,000 Miles

Friday night, halfway down Highway 107 south of Montesano, my car hit 100,000 miles.

Odometer 99999
Odometer 100000

It's a 1998 Toyota Corolla, but we bought it in 2000 with 26,000-or-so miles on it. That purchase is a story in and of itself, but I won't get into that now.

Ten years, 100,000 miles, 10,000 miles per year, more or less.

We bought it in Pocatello, Idaho. The car's been down the Pacific Coast Highway nearly the length of California. It's been to Victoria and Whistler. It's driven on the beach at Ocean Shores and further north. It's been back to Idaho a couple times. It's hauled kayaks and 24' ladders and downspouts and furniture and cellos and all types of luggage. It's had three out of four fenders replaced. And yes, it's driven the lengths of Washington State Highways 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 in order.

It's a good car.

But not quite as good as a 2008 Subaru Forester. ;)

BTW, I hear the 2009 Forester is sluggish. They kept the same engine but made it several hundred pounds heavier, so what did Subaru expect?
