I don't have fancy gadgets like Turbo or Rosie but I could easy swing 1000 nm a day. I would guesstimate my total mileage is 93,000 and some change.

Default BIG CONGRATS!!!!!

all i can say is congrats on a fantastic trip. i really enjoyed following your trip on the spot tracker. the exumas to texas was incredible. the wx broke and you were off and running. the familiar pics of the virgin islands was sooo cool. my odo is hovering somewhere north of 10,000 miles. im sure you are glad to be back home. where was the best diving anyways? @$300/day x 30 days = priceless. a trip of a life time. you are the man! thanks for hanging out in homestead with me till i got things sorted out. i feel a trip to key west coming on this week with kim.also flying up to merrit island tomorrow for my ifr cert. glad you got home on time.

The end of the year is counting down and the odometers are counting up. Get your totals ready. My 35,000 miles includes both aircraft. Looks like a 50/50 split between both. It has been a great year. Enjoying a train ride to NYC for a three day vist with friends. Amtrack rules.

You got it right Moose! I still have a couple of more weeks before I 'show my hand' on my odometer miles, but either way, Turbo has me beat for TOTAL in all aircraft Rosie

PS: I just flew my 100th Young Eagle this afternoon, Garrett Brooks, yee-ha!
