The tripometer engineering came together...just..... this was within a microsecond of going to 12.5 ruining the symmetry of a prile of 124's.

The old Ellesmere Port workhorse is still plodding along munching through the miles

This is what is known as a palindromic straight. I always take pleasure in the randomness of locations when the significant mileage marks occur. This one was at the Car park at Cresswell Northumberland. The sight of my classic Karman Ghia coupe spot only the previous week, and of today's POTD contibution from me a SAAB 93 Aero Convertible.

228877
Took the photo on my phone and it is in the phone which won't connect with any of my computers.
Took the SD card out and that isn't recognised in either of the laptops and the desktop has no reader.
Realise too late that a camera was on the back seat but buried as we had dropped the seats to transport a Christmas tree :(

Tempted to take it out for an eight mile trip to 228888 as it is on 228880 now and my son is likely to take it to Scotland tomorrow and ruin everything.

SSSSSShhhhhh!

Actually it is watching out for hazards that causes me to miss the significant bits, when I remember to look at all.

hats off to a bit of skilful tripometer engineering Steve.

Now a decent trip for the 230000 milestone would be 23.0 or 230.0 watch out for 229,770 and zero the trip! :-D

I'm glad it cheered you up Jim!

God, I'm spending too much time buried in schematics and need to get out more!
