Home from Balticon ... or 20k miles in a year ...

Got home today from Balticon after the usual (helping unload in NJ yesterday). It was hot and humid in Baltimore.

It also occurs to me that Victor, my 1999 Volvo V70 T5M, passed 220k miles this weekend almost exactly a year after it passed 200k miles on the way back from Balticon last year. I'm contemplating adding up the repair bills from the last year but I'm not sure I want to. Among other things the alternator died on the way down on Thursday. Thank heavens for AAA Plus which allowed me to tow the car 113 miles from South NJ to Hunt Valley for $52 plus tolls (the first 100 miles are free). Still the car is in better shape than many cars with half its mileage or age.
