Well, in seven days I've notched up 2,000 and over the next ten I'm going to do another 4,000. Not a normal fortnight.
My trusty choices of travel? The new Ford Transit Custom and BMW's awesome new 1200 Adventure bike.
More about the bike next week.
We transported the BMW and a mountain of gear to Vienna in the back of the van and did the non-stop blast from Calais to Eastern Austria in one day having caught a red-eye Chunnel train.
Not bad value at £90 each way, bearing in mind it takes just 30 minutes to cross La Manche.
And you don't get sea sick. With a quarter of a tonne of BMW's latest and greatest safely tied down in the back we blitzed across Belgium and smashed the full width and breadth of Germany in record time.
The Transit Custom managed more than 500 miles to a tank-full even though we sat on the autobahn at precisely 100mph for hour after hour.
Yes, it's a very fast van - even faced with a big load and an uphill incline. But some of the details rock.
There are about a thousand cup holders and the LED lights in the back are a revelation. Do other vans really just have a single light bulb? The back of the Transit is lit up like Blackpool in the autumn.
The Transit Custom's twin front passenger seats aren't a patch on the multi-adjustable and softly-sprung driver's seat but the trip was a doddle for me and my passenger who brought a cushion to provide some muchneeded comfort.
