Day 419 – (AD 849) – 22.3 Miles – Jim's Trek Part III – A Couple of Milestones On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I cycled another 22.3 miles in 72 minutes at a 12 resistance on my Schwinn 170. Totals – 17,720.0 miles; 28,517.6 kilometers.

And today my Jim’s Trek blog clocked 70,007 pageviews. The daily average of pageviews has increased by 1 to 77 a day. Thank you. (This is my 908th post.)


This morning I reached Mackay, my 17th of 20 destinations and goal points on this weird and crazy Trek, Jim’s Trek III. In Australia I have now pedaled 9,097.7 miles; 14,641.14 kilometers. At this 17th point of Part III I have cycled 51.36% of my overall mileage of 17,714.8 miles. I am astounded that I have been able to keep this up on this 849th day of pedaling. (That’s 59 days of no pedaling since 2 December 2012.) Narcissistic or not, and whether you read this or not, I am just gonna keep going. Period.

And I continued past Mackay for another 5.2 miles in Queensland. I am now headed in a southerly direction and I have another 271 miles to go to get to my next, 18th destination and goal point.


According to my calculation I still have about, give or take, about 13.3% of the distance remaining to cross my finish line.

And all I can say is that if a major appliance should just so happen to breakdown and has to be replaced I am damn for sure thankful that it happened on Memorial Day weekend. Yes I had to get a new washing machine. Only in America.


Another has thrown his hat into the fray. A new candidate, Rick Santorum tweeted, “Today I announce my candidacy for President of the United States.” And if you’re a Republican you’ve got a lot of studying to do, that is if you intend on choosing a reasonable and credible candidate.
