Day 108 – (AD 538) – Jim's Trek Part III – 21.0 Miles – Headed South in Western Australia on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

And it is afternoon on my 538th day of cycling on my Schwinn 170. Today I pedaled 21.0 miles. My schedule was thrown off a wee bit due to an early morning appointment. And I am now just about four days from turning 11,000 miles on my Schwinn odometer.

This afternoon I turned left onto the Coolgardie-Esperance Highway. Per Wikipedia this highway “passes through arid mining country, mainly dotted with patches of gum trees, scrub and salt lakes.” Does not sound much different from what I’ve seen on the last couple of weeks of my Trek through Western and South Australia.

I am now south of the Town of Norseman which is nice to know that it is the first major town in Western Australia since the South Australian border…about 450 miles from the east. Oh and the population is about 860. Neighborly sort of town?

I posted our 3rd of three of our new series of quilts and wall hangings. This one is Diamonds. Check out the updates and write-ups at Quilts SB.

For Florida, not so bad an idea from Amazon from Accoutrements. Only $7.61.

Jim’s Trek has now racked up 41,659 pageviews on Blogger.

If you are reading this blog and just so happen to be somewhere along my route in Australia please feel free to drop me a line at jsmith58@gmail.com. Certainly would welcome it.

Trying to be healthy and keep on pedaling.
