Million Mile LB7 Journey

I just wanted to start a thread about my journey to the million mile mark. I'm getting pretty close... I've got about 848,000 on the odometer but the speedometer and odometer are about 5% to 6% off so I'm closer to 890,000.

Here are a few pictures...not too bad for an 890,000 mile work truck. I travel quite a bit building playgrounds.

Occasionally I like to pop the hood up in the morning and squeeze the radiator. The other morning, I found a hard hose. I pulled the coolant cap and it gurgled out a little coolant. I was pretty surprised and worried. I was hoping it might have something to do with a recent trip out to Colorado Springs and back...elevation change and air pressure stuff.

The next morning...hard hose. Great. I got to thinking... I'm not losing any coolant so maybe it's just an injector cup. Maybe, though, it might just be that old coolant tank cap. I went to NAPA and bought a new cap...problem solved!!!

Not bad at all!
Question for ya, I was in Orland Park, Illinois... I met some fellas from Canada that were here building large indoor party grounds. Apparently they're some type of upcoming thing, any idea what I'm trying to describe?
