We did it! On Saturday March 11th, 2023, our 2003 Honda Accord EX V6 6spd (6-6) became the first V6 Honda car or truck to reach one million miles. I drove the car from TX to Gatlinburg, TN to hit the milestone and celebrate with family and friends. @DerekWildstar @stiller fan and @Ash051 brought their Accords and gave me a very special gift to commemorate the occasion.

Here is the video of it as it happens:

We did this in the Smoky Mountains National Park. It was a challenge to set a date and get my miles to the point where I could hit the million with everyone waiting on me.

Here's the group before we headed up to Newfound Gap:

The odometer freezes at all 9s. The trip odometer rolls back over to zeros.

Tim, Josh, and Ash got this picture framed for us. It's a great shot Tim took of the car when we met in NJ last Sept. This is awesome! Thank you all so much!
