On November 26, I took out the Alpine stereo. It wasn't able to stay on (only intermittent power), so I removed it and re-installed the factory radio.

We Did It!

On November 22, 2008, we landed on a personal milestone. I forgot to keep an eye on it when I was driving home from work. While in park, with the van shut off, on my way out the door, I glanced and celebrated. I didn't miss the rollover.

Caravan odometer = 170,000 miles!
