Day 17 – (AD 240) – Jim’s Trek Part II – The Sequel – 23.1 Miles – Quietly in Redmond on My Schwinn 150

Good Day,

This morning I cycled an extra wee bit, 23.1 miles on my Schwinn 150. I am in Oregon and have reached the northern outskirts of the City of Redmond. Redmond is one of the fast growing cities in Oregon. The population increased almost 100% between 2000 and 2010. The current population is in the area of 27,000.

Today I passed the 4,600 mile mark and have cycled since December 2, 2012 – 4,613.1 miles.

Yesterday I had to let my prize Taylor go. I do miss my kind lady, my Taylor. She and her brother Tobi were my constant and gentle companions from just after my accident in 2001. Both are now asleep, and I miss them both.

Be healthy and enjoy,
