New member to the 100K mile club

I was in the Harrisburg, PA area, heading east to visit with family (and attend a conference to pick up some required CE hours). Wanted to get a pic or two, and I decided I didn't want to be on some busy, crowded, noisy divided highway. So, when I got down to the last 3-4 miles I took an exit ("Mountain Rd" or some such thing) looking for a quieter, more picturesque location. Found it. Stopped, took a few shots, then some guy, a local with his two boys came along. "Nice car" he said, so I explained why I was stopped. Got him to take a photo or two of me (and I even took one of them as well). The kids, little guys on their bikes, loved the car, were really checking it out. The dad kept saying, "Don't touch! Don't touch!"

Anyway, she still runs like a champ! (Knocking on wood as I post..)
