Days 257 – (AD 1,417) – 22.1 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I pedaled 22.1 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now at 30,089.6 miles; 48,424.6 kilometers.


And I have now completed 21.2% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.

Just received news that Susanne M. Jones’ publication “Fly Me To The Moon” is currently on display at the Library of Congress. Susanne has done one fantastic job creating, coordinating and managing the Fly Me To The Moon exhibition of quilts.


Andy and I are extremely surprised when we just found out that the page featuring one of three quilts, that are in the collection, Apollo 1, The Beginning is featured at the open page of the book at The Library of Congress.

Here’s is the image of our Apollo 1, The Beginning.

Days 256 – (AD 1,418) – 22.4 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Thoughts are with those sorely affected by both storms, Irma and Maria.

This morning I decided that I had better get back on my Schwinn 170. I pedaled 22.4 miles and burned 881 calories. My grand totals now stand at 30,067.5 miles; 48,389.0 kilometers.



I have also now completed 17.3% of the 580 miles to my next destination on the Red Planet.

I’m still tracking my blood sugar count, you know diabetes and all. And yes, I am back to taking metformin in consultation with my doctors.


The blue line on the graph shows my daily A1c calculation since 1 July 2016. The red line is a moving average 90-day calculation. (Yes, it is because of this line moving in an upward direction that caused some concern.)

The combination of and the further examination of my diet, exercise, and medication has resulted in a downward swing of my daily A1c numbers. I am excited that I have been able to now touch the upward moving forecast.

Our quilt “June 19th” made its debut this past weekend at Patchwork Europe 2017 in Sainte Marie Aux Mines, France. It is one of the 38 pieces that will be on display at various locations and shows throughout the world in the upcoming year. We are tickled pink.

Also, our “OPOY” (Orlando Pulse One Year) will be on display as finalists this upcoming week and weekend, September 27-30 at the MQX Quilt Festival – Midwest in Springfield, Illinois.

Trying to be smart and level-headed with the media swirling around about the forecasted hurricanes Irma and Jose.

Days 254 – (AD 1,416) – 20.7 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Yesterday’s new loaf of bread, Black Olive and Oregano is almost gone. Had it with Cheddar Cheese, Tomato, and Kosher Dills for supper last night.




This bread was one of the best yet.

Days 253 – (AD 1,415) – 20.7 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,


Today I accomplished a new goal I reached the 30,000-mile mark. That’s one hell of a lot of pedaling on my Schwinn Fitness cycles. To be exact 30,003.9 miles!!!

That’s 1,415 days of pedaling since December 2012.


This morning I pedaled another 20.7 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals now at 30,003.9 miles; 48,286.7 kilometers.


Overall I still have 8,197.7 more miles to pedal to complete my overall goal. Thanks to Schwinn Fitness, Bowflex, and Nautilus for the encouragement.

I am on my way to my new destination and goal point and have completed 6.4% of that distance.

Our Quilt News –

Our latest project WOW! - Andy's and my work, Origami Cranes - (2 sizes; 5" and 6" blocks) white on white. Images were taken with and without flash.




We used our #AccuQuilt design die to cut the Cranes. We're continuing to work on the overall and quilting designs.
