    That's weird, I turned 49 this year. Coincidence? No.

    Congrats! All are good! What kind of truck? You obviously take great care of your tools, so I bet you make 244,000 miles too.

    Here in the salt belt our truck bodies rust out. Down there in the sun belt you blow up your motors. If we put two and two together...oh never mind. Congratulations.

    I turned 54 this week, but only have 220,000 on my 96 Tocoma. Makes me feel like a slacker older truck with less miles.

    I love that truck and hope to put 300K miles or more on it.

    The post counter does not increase when posting to this off topic forum, so I can stay at 1000 for a while..

    Dont feel like a slacker, my 96 truck only has 90k miles on it.

    I have not really passed any milestones....wait....that did not sound right..

    "Passing a milestone?" Sort of like passing a kidney stone only worse..............

    Never mind. Ignore this. I'm tired and just got finished reading the "Where's Sixto" thread. I should be alright in the morning.
