  A little while after we passed the Kearney, Nebraska area on I-80 today, our motorhome odometer registered 115,000 miles even!  We bought it with about 40,000 miles on it, back in May of '02, so we've put 75,000 miles on ourselves, most of them since January of '06, when we went full-time.  We've been very lucky (and blessed with Greg's talents as a driver, in my opinion!), to have never had any big problems in all those miles.  Let's hope our good luck in that category continues for a long, long time!
   A couple other details of interest at this point in our travels:  Since January 1 of this year, we've put justs over 4,000 miles on the motorhome (and we sat still for 8 of these almost-10 months!).  Our average price per gallon for diesel fuel so far this year is $3.03; and we're still averaging 8.3 miles per gallon, which has been pretty consistent for all five of our full-timing years.
  Our trusty GPS (aka "Satellite Sally") has recorded 110,200 miles since we got it as a retirement gift from Greg's company upon his retirement in January '06...we've used it in both the motorhome and the car (and in rental cars several times, too)...not a whole lot of miles have been driven in this past four and a half years when Sally hasn't accompanied us
