Day 213 – (AD 643) – Jim's Trek Part III – 21.3 Miles – Headed East in Western Australia on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled another 21.3 miles on my Schwinn 170. I have crossed the 13,200 mile mark…by half-a-mile. My grand total today is 13,200.5 miles and I have now completed 53.01% of my total goal.


I left Broome this morning and I am back on the Great Northern Highway and I am headed in an easterly direction. And it looks like my virtual Trek will take about another 29 days before I finally exit the state of Western Australia.

Texting while walking…SLAM! The walking textor abruptly meets with a tree or lamp pole. No longer. Type n Walk uses your front-facing camera so that you can view the sidewalk as you amble along and attempt to text. What can I say?

For $0.99 download Type n Walk if you are so, so stuck on carrying on your cryptic conversation. I figured that this is may be somewhat of a hazard and I wonder what code this may be classified under any “viable” healthcare insurance plan. (And no I do not have this app.)

Blood sugar skyrocketed up 23 points this morning. Grill Smith dinner last night – Voodoo French Fries, Chicken Ravioli in Vodka Sauce, Steamed Broccoli, Chocolate Decadence Cake topped with Chocolate Mousse, and 6 Olives in my Grey Goose Martinis. I should not be surprised. My three month average blood sugar averages out at 95.01 mg/dL or 5.278 mmol/l. That’s an A1c of 4.95%. And according to my iPhone Health app I stepped 12,486 times.

Did you know that for just $500 you can try to duplicate the $45,000 floating hamster wheel that just didn’t make it to Bermuda? Yes you can buy your own water walking bubble. Hell then the Coast Guard can deposit you with Reza Baluchi and all the crazies in the peninsular state of Florida.

But not only in Florida. Yes you can rent and pretend you are a water walking rodent at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina…$10 for one to three minutes.


No I am not rigging up my Schwinn Fitness cycle and water-cycling to Bermuda...or Jamaica.
