Put your key in the ignition on position and gently turn it. Is the there a dead spot in the ignition switch? Sometimes a lot of keys swinging around on a keyring can cause wear and a dead spot.

Agreed.. Keep your keychain light. Also, vibration on the road will definitely expose a loose battery connection... Check those and the ground point of the negative battery cable.
