#9 Highlight of Trip to Portland

Playing witness as the odometer tripped over the 200,000 milestone in The Little White Van.

Way to go baby, here’s to another 200,000!


  • Location – 25 miles north of home up I-15.
  • Musical accompaniment – The Proclaimers’, I Would Walk 500 Miles (How I Met Your Mother reference)
  • Celebratory accoutrement – Fake Champaign in the form of sparkling cider. Cigars and real Champaign were out, as the event took place in Utah, and we are participants in the dominate religion. Alas we had no means of opening celebratory device and had to settle for merely waving the bottle about like drunken Super Bowl Champions.

  1. Thanks for the text when this occured... I was cheering as well. Then I said a prayer that our reliable 200K van would keep hauling you all the way to Portland and home again... Gary
