    Moncha turns 10!

    I hate the fact that work got in the way of an important celebration.

    Ten years ago Laura and I traded in our '99 Astral VX for our beloved 2000 Proton VX (Moncha). I loved it when the sales guys reminded me, "You gotta wake up to that color every morning, you sure you want it?"

    The obsession was on a roll when I met up with Tone in Colorado Springs for an Impromptu meet in my Astral, but it launched into space with the Proton!

    At 38K miles its been a lot fun traveling through Moab, the Pacific Northwest as well as the trails on the mountains of Colorado.

    I'm looking forward to several more decades of fun.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MONCHA!!!!

    WOW, congratulations!

    ... even though it sorta makes me feel sorry for myself because I haven't had a VX for the last 10 years!

    Wow! I feel like such a noob. Ten years waking up to that light Kaiser color.....priceless. (remember I'm color blind). Congrats Boss.
    So I said to myself, I said "Handee"
    and this voice came back and said..
    "He's not in, may we take a message?"

    Congrats, Scott. All the old guard is now over ten years or close to it. It seems like just yesterday.
    We're now on our way to twenty years!

    Gratz! Very cool. Next month would have been year 10 for me had my Dragon lived. I believe she gave her life to save me with barely 3k milles on her.

    +1, like Anita said at the rate I'm going I'll be at 200K by then.

    Congrats on the milestone, I can only hope I get there some day!
