Day 224 – (AD 1,129) – 23.5 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I pedaled another 23.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals – 24,157.0 miles; 38,877.0 kilometers.

Google Maps has me located at 1, Szomód, 2896 Hungary and I couldn’t be heading more in a northern direction if I tried.



I only have 3.0% left. That’s 3.0% on top of the 24,157.0 miles that I have already cycled.

The advertisements on TV typically are in favor of the drugs and medicine therapy. Of course the corporate drug pushers are only concerned with their bottom line. And a quick blurt out or the fine, fine print always includes the tandem necessity of diet and exercise. The somewhat “lethargic” human would sooner pop a “quick-fix” pill to secure the best numbers. But hell I know when I have caused my early morning blood sugar counts to move upward or downward.

When I am lazy, they go up. Up is not the positive direction. Yesterday I did not exercise. I did not cook the fish fillets that I had planned. I decided that I wanted BBQ Wings and Baked Cheese and Bacon French Fries. Smith, suffer the consequences. A greater number is not the positive direction. Period. Complacency and laziness is not a healthy excuse. Oh yeah my early morning blood sugar rose to 120 mg/dL this morning.

Soapbox –

Could this be a Liza election?


BBC News - US election 2016: Six reasons it will make history-

1) Twilight years
2) New York, New York
3) Money, money, money
4) Experience
5) A woman in office?
6) Democrat relay?

Day 223 ½ – (AD 1,128 ½) – 0.0 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – Washed Out On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Too many appointments and errands to run this morning, and to top it all Bright House cut the lines to my house while installing down the street. Two trucks out, service up as soon as they arrived. Bloody hell. I am going to move to somewhere where logic thought is a credible attribute.

Cardiologist very happy with my recent results and immediate normal EKG readings.



Next appointment extended out for 12 months. My diet and exercise must be doing something right. Credit to my Schwinn 170.

Soapbox –


Halleluiah! The burdensome “somewhat” warped right-extremist candidate has suspended his campaign. Has his affront to reality finally sunk in?

But what does “suspend campaign” truly mean? Is it a wimpy Schwarzenegor Terminator-ism? Will he be back?



And the other one, what’s his name? Oh yeah, Kasich, the one candidate who has been running in the fumes of the event is supposed to announce something “important” later this afternoon. Are there any odds? Charles Dickens could be running in his grave.

Day 223 – (AD 1,128) – 22.1 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I pedaled another 22.1 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals – 24,133.5 miles; 38,839.2 kilometers.



From where I started this morning in Budapest my next destination and goal point is 150 miles away. I am headed west, I think. I am now located, virtually at Rózsa utca 4, Bicske, 2060 Hungary.

Images can trigger thoughts...

I now have only 3.1% of my total goal remaining. To tell you a secret, I sort-of can’t wait for this bloody crazy Trek to finish.

Wings Update - The quilt sandwiches have been made. Andy and I have decided on our quilting design.

Day 221 – (AD 1,126) – 24.5 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – Continuing On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This is my 1,126th day of pedaling on a Schwinn Fitness cycle. Jim’s Trek began on December 2, 2012.

Schwinn 150
Schwinn 170


This morning I pedaled 24.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals – 24,088.4 miles; 38,766.6 kilometers. Based on my calculations I will reach my complete goal in about 41 more pedaling days. Also if my intentions are spot-on I should be crossing the finish line on Sunday, June 19th, Fathers’ Day.



On the virtual part of my journey, Google Maps has me located at 6, Ercsi, 2451 Hungary. I will reach my next goal and destination point in about 16.9 miles, which should be tomorrow. After heading north for some time at that juncture I will be changing the direction of my Trek and then head just about due west.

Soapbox -


When you go to the polls to vote for our next American Administration this November just remember and think of the richness that each one of us and/or our families and ancestors brought to create this country.

And yes I am proud to be an immigrant
