75K miles service today. Actual mileage was around 76,400. It was a big job so I got a loaner car. This time, it was a Scion tC. Of all the loaners I've had so far, this one has the most cramped interior. I'm not the tallest person by far but my head was already up against the roof! If the driver's compartment were any smaller, I wouldn't be able to get in. On the plus side, engine power appears to be adequate for this vehicle weight. It had no trouble going up that last steep hill before my place.

Of course, I had to take the loaner out on a geocache run. I went to Tribute to JB, a geocache on the JB Clarke Trail in Orangeburg. I was a little worried when I read the cache description, which was a tale about squeezing one's arm through a fence. I'm not the person with the thickest arms by far but once again, size could pose a problem. So I brought some equipment to the cache site in case I needed help reaching the cache and pulling it in. Luckily, no extraordinary measures were necessary. I was able to reach through the bars and get the cache with at least half an inch to spare.
