My Ford Explorer's High Mileage Life!

I just found out about this site and wanted to share with you the awesomeness that is my Ford Explorer. With a ford you really can only purchase one car your entire life and have it give you endless satisfaction. My Ford is a 1995 Explorer and I am on my way to half a million miles. I just reached 451,655 miles as I write this and can’t wait to get to 500,000. I am going to try to plan it on a great trip so I have an awesome story to tell when I get to that milestone.

Matthew Thompson Thanks Luis. I just turned over another thousand trailering 2 horses around Oregon for some scouting and trial riding around some of my favorite hunting spots. The truck works harder than I do and always seems start right up when I need it. You should try to pick up another truck when you can and really see how far it can take you. It is incredibly satisfying watching the odometer effortlessly click over miles as I roll down the road.

Luis Lujan This is amazing!! I would love to buy a Ford, brand new, and just keep it forever. I had a 2007 F-150 which I bought new; it had 185 miles on it, and I documented every milestone until the economy made me give it up. Congratulations on maintaining your Explorer, and I hope you reach far beyond 500,000.
