This year is off to an extremely busy start with the most snow that the Boise area has seen in over 30 years. Rough calculations state that I have shoveled over 15,000lbs of snow from the driveway so far this winter. My back is killing me, people are crashing into each other like it’s going out of style, it’s been in the low 20’s to -10 degrees for about a month & I’m pretty much over it. There should be about 4 more weeks (I’m hoping) of real winter weather before things start to warm up enough to blessedly end the snow. It’s been so bad that I actually had to use the RDX for about a week (gasp)! I am ready to complain about the heat!
So, have you heard about this guy?
Bruce Audley & his 1999 Acura TL in Canada reached 1,000,000 Kilometers as the original owner! Congrats to Bruce! Click the link to read up & see the video. The article at Acura Connected states “To our knowledge, this is the most miles or kilometers an Acura has ever reached.” An awesome achievement to be sure, but I’ll admit that I was disappointed at his statement of the car only being a tool. Technically he’s right, but how can you spend that much time behind the wheel of a car & not have any connection at all?
Obviously I can’t take this laying down. 1,000,000 km = 621,371.192 miles. I’m currently just over 526,000 miles. A difference of about 95,000 miles (about 2 years of driving for me). The gauntlet has been thrown & my TSX is up to the challenge! My new goal is 625,000 miles! The TSX will be king & reign supreme.
Since there is new horizons ahead, I guess I should catch up on the maintenance.
A few months ago I took the TSX in for the 515k oil change & as Chris was pulling it out of his stall, it started to misfire. He found the #2 Coil Pack had failed, which caused the misfire. I had them replace it on the spot & decided to order 3 additional coil packs & replace them 1 at a time to spread out the cost. I figured, if one went out, it’s just a matter of time before the rest go as well. I have one more to go before they are all replaced and there’s one less thing to worry about. Now that I have 625k in my sites, I gotta make sure She’s in tip top shape.
That wraps up this quick update. It’s back to the snow. But at least it provides a fantastic backdrop for photos. So I’ll leave you with some pics from the last month or so.
Stay safe out there!
