Day 311 – (AD 741) – 22.5 Miles – Jim's Trek Part III – Erldunda My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

When I woke up this morning I did not have the gumption to get on my cycle...and it was not the guilt but the fact that I have-to-just-do-it took supplanted the thought. Guess I am hooked.

This morning I cycled 22.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. My grand total is now 15,332.9 miles; 24,676.0 kilometers.

At Erldunda I turned an immediate right onto Lasseter Highway/State Route 4. Erldunda is a tiny town in the Red Centre of the Northern Territory. The village describes itself as a superior roadhouse. Erldunda has a population of just 50 people. (From Wikitravel.)

Finally got around to seeing "The Book of Mormon".

I laughed in places, and I enjoyed myself. At the Straz Center, it was a performance for a large audience. I always find that there is a loss of intimacy at a venue of this size. But I did exit the theater trying to think of what the playwrights really was trying to say.

Steve Bornfeld, Vegas Seven, sort of touches my feelings and thoughts in his article "Earning a Prophet: The Book of Mormon Is Outrageous, But Not As Ballsy As You Thought" - 

"Profound philosophical questions are posed in dialogue such as, “Can bullshit feed a hungry soul?” and, “Does it matter if the gospel is true?” While the characters are sweetly likable, what informs their lives—in essence, who they are—is savaged."

I think I will just read The Book of Arnold.

This is my 789th Jim’s Trek post. According to Blogger Jim’s Trek has recorded, as of this morning, 59,701 Pageviews.
