How many miles are in your mileage account? [Consolidated]

Be honest, how many redeemable miles do you have in your mileage account right now? I am quite curious as to what other members have. What are you saving for/going to spend it on?

I'll start...174,319 miles, and I want to book a First Class ticket to Japan

I have about the same. But I think instead of using them for one trip to Japan in first class I will probably be using them for 3 such trips in coach. For me, a few hours in first class just isn't worth losing two additional opportunities to explore the world. I completely understand why people choose first class when money and miles are not a problem but for someone whose dollars and miles are hard and few to come by, I need to maximize their potential if I want to see some far off places. Plus I'm lucky that less leg room still doesn't bother me. So far.
Each to his own...

SPG 40 000
HH 100 000
AA 40 000
LH 100 000

But last year I burned

SPG over 200 000
HH over 400 000
AA 250 000
LH 60 000
US 300 000

Look at the 'enhancements' happening in almost all the programs. There is no reason to sit on miles and points. Burn them!
