Well, just returned from my 71st trip back from Aberdeen is some very hazzardous conditions!

Anyway, just checked my years mileage and I've done 98k
How's it been for you?

Happy New Year :D

Only started 3 months ago but for 2009 I managed 20k.

So pro-rata that'd be around 80k.

What I am driving at the moment is two years old on January 14th and by then it may have reached three thousand miles on the clock. But not if it snows as we dont go out in the snow. But then thats understandable for £125,000's worth of exhibition bus with the same again in equipment on board - and I dont get paid by the mile.

Ah, the Directional Variance Issue. Most common in London when SatNav goes down and you're reaching for the A-Z.
