Randy Mulder bought a 2016 Chevy Equinox on Dec. 31, 2015.

By the second week in March, he had put 14,000 kilometers on the car. That’s about 8,700 miles if you need a metric conversion.

Again and again, Mulder drove the 12-hour roundtrip from Windsor, Ontario, to Lexington last season. Of course, he went to see his son, Mychal Mulder, then a junior on the Kentucky team.

The elder Mulder drove to all but two of UK’s home games (He rented cars for the trips prior to buying the Equinox). He also drove to Chicago to see Kentucky play Duke, plus to road games at Tennessee, Auburn and Vanderbilt.

A song once sung by Willie Nelson and — believe it or not — former UK Coach Joe B. Hallcomes to mind: this season finds Mulder on the road again. He drove back and forth for each of Kentucky’s exhibition games.
