Are we there yet?

Miranda, my faithful '97 Plymouth Breeze, is nearing 250,000 miles on her odometer. While driving to Cincinnati today, I did a rough calculation in my head of all the vehicles I have ever driven. My ballpark guess is that I have driven around 1,000,000 miles so far in my life. I don't know what to make of that, but it sounds significant.

Tomorrow, the adventure continues as I drive to Nashville, TN, for the UM Chaplains Training for the 2005 National Scout Jamboree. I'll return late Tuesday.
