Another month & a half has slipped by & I’m happy to say that this coming week, I am finally going part time. Thankfully, I will be able to spend some time getting back in shape, getting projects done around the house & of course, plow through the last 25,000 miles to my goal! That’s right, last week, this happened…With this last 400k milestone now passed, I’m getting pretty excited about finally hitting my goal. Although I have found that life past the 450k mark has been pretty spendy. Taking the last wreck out of the equation, things are finally starting to fail. I’m sure you’ve noticed it as well with all the repair invoices this year.
Speaking of which, lets take a moment to get caught up on those now.
First up we have the 470k Oil Change…Then of course the 475k Oil Change…A few hundred miles after the last oil change, I started hearing noises coming from the tensioner. The Acura guys checked it out & confirmed it was the tensioner. I had replaced this at around 220k & now it has come time again to replace it. So it looks like 220k – 245k is about as much as you’re going to get out of tensioner. At least in my case. So I had it replaced again…The last thing I need is to have everything lock up during the home stretch!
I can’t begin to express how much I’m looking forward to part time. I’ve been working 6-7 days a week, 10 – 14 hrs a day for just about the last 10 years. Getting some other goals started while tackling the 25,000 miles will be my new job. I’ll be able to go see the things that I want to see. Not just what happens to be along the way to a job. So hopefully I’ll be able to share with you more interesting locations & more often.
So tell all your friends. I have a feeling these last 25,000 miles will be going fast. I think I’ll be looking for excuses to go for a drive in the next few months. Thanks for stopping by this quick update. Remember to check out tsxtravels on Instagram & Facebook for some additional pictures.
Be safe out there!
