Days 255 – (AD 1,417) – 20.5 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled my Schwinn 170 20.5 miles. Totals are 30,045.1 miles, 48,353.0 kilometers.


And I have completed 13.5% of the distance to my next destination.


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

I will be monitoring NOAA as regularly as I can.

Good Day,

Today I pedaled my Schwinn 170 another 20.7 miles. Totals now at 30,024.6 miles; 48,320.0 kilometers.

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.

Days 251 – (AD 1,413) – 20.5 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Have you ever woken up on a morning and felt that you were either in the wrong place and time?

First, I made sure that I was in my correct world and dimension and then this morning I pedaled 20.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals now are at 29,962.1 miles; 48,219.4 kilometers.


I have completed 98.9 % of the distance to my next destination. Only 4.84 miles to go.

My opinion – P.F. Chang’s versus Yummy House


Last night had supper at P.F. Chang’s. My opinion, the food at Yummy House on Water’s and at Yummy House China Bistro on Hillsborough is, by a stretch far, far superior to that offered at P.F. Chang’s. Further, the prices at both Yummys are half the price.








Our latest quilt MTBD has been delivered to its new home in South Carolina.

MTBD - JS AB - August 2017

Stopped by, with family, the show Art of the Brick in Tampa. Well worth the wait in line. Yes, it is Lego!


Last day is September 4 at 802 East Whiting Street, Downtown Tampa.
