100K miles in a Defender

On Tuesday our Land Rover Defender 90 Station Wagon (#382 of 500 imported) hit a milestone. After 16 years 18 days, she rolled past 100,000 miles. Living in Virginia, Arizona, Massachusetts, and now Virginia she got us home all times but twice, once when an electronic module quit 1/4 mile from the house and once when she was run of gas by another family member who didn't know of her quirkiness.

Since I picked her up from the dealer in Tysons Corner, VA on January 6, 1996, I can now say I have driven nearly 100,000 miles in a Defender…and I still have my hearing.

So you're now in VA again if I read this correctly? Which part?
