Three Months...

...and thirty-five thousand miles.

In the past, I'd drive the Rodeo three thousand miles in three weeks. And an oil change shortly thereafter. But since I've been driving the "company vehicle", for the first time in recorded history, three months happened first.

The Rodeo's a 2001 model; when Marilee and I bought it a year ago last March, it had 51,000 miles on it, and I drove it (well, the kids helped out a little) over 35,000 miles. In one year. It doesn't have overdrive, but you get the picture.

Now, three months after its last oil change, it has only seen 2,000 miles. Of course, the miles that would have been on the Rodeo were instead put on the POS 2005 Impala and the 2008 Silverado. And far more miles, what with a trip to Kanab, Nephi, Logan a couple times, Corrinne more than a few times, and Rowley too many times to mention.

The Silverado's OK, but I miss driving the Rodeo. It fits me better. Had a service call in Vernal yesterday and just about broke my back; it's not comfortable at all.

At least I'm not paying for the gas.
