Travelling Oldham County Roads

Last week my car rolled 100,000 miles. I’ve owned the car for almost 10 years now, so this milestone has been a long time coming.  Most people would have reached this milestone in less than half that time!  The car has served me quite well over the years, and I imagine that he will continue to do so for a few more. Lord Taurus as I refer to him… yes a him. Lord Taurus is a dark green Ford Taurus. A family sedan, he is both roomy on the inside with his four doors and fairly easy on the gas for a car his size. He has toted more friends, family and clients then I can count.

His most recent milestone got me to thinking about where those 100,000 miles have taken me. The single largest at one time was probably my road trip and the subsequent time I spent out west. In the summer of 2000 I went and worked in Yellowstone National Park. During that road trip I visited places in South Dakota, and Nevada, Wyoming, and Montana. Plus, everywhere between here and there. We’ve gone to Nolin Lake several times over the years together. But even with all of those big trips racking up the mileage, most of Lord Taurus’s miles come from the roads in Oldham County. He has been up every side street in Crestwood, and Pewee Valley. He has traveled most of the streets in LaGrange and Buckner and knows his fair share of the streets in Goshen. He has even been out to Westport a few times to visit.
