I just noticed that my odometer reads 74047, which is a palindromic number. If I always drive at exactly 55 miles per hour how long has it been since the previous palindromic odometer reading (to the closest minute).

I believe the palindrome immediately before 74047 is 73937, making a difference of 110 miles, meaning exactly 2 hours driving time.

Bah! I was beat!
