Thanks, Tom. At this rate, I should hit 1600 miles by the end of 2007... but that's assuming I could keep this up in the cold and snow. If I hit 1500 by New Years, that'd be cool.

If you hit 1500 by new years eve, I'll update your certificate and award you a date with Hallie Berry! (Well, not really on the date part, but WTF )

Cruel, just cruel Tom. I almost sprinted out the door so I could go home and ride non-stop till I hit 1500 miles... till I saw you were teasing us.

Don't believe the hype. I surpassed 1,500 long ago and Hallie Berry was not at the finish line. As a matter of fact, I think there was an opposum there with me.

...and I'm still waiting for my certificate...

What's your current mileage? I'll make one up.

I'm pretty sure I'm about to pass or have already passed 1000 for this year. I'll know for sure once my odometer hits 1900, though... and that's only 232 miles to go.
